Indians are now eating out nearly seven times a month, a recently released India Food Services 2019 report reveals. The survey analyzing the food habits of Indians studies their meal preferences, the frequency of eating out and the amount of investment that has made its way into the Indian Food and Beverages (F&B) sector.

The survey also revealed that an Indian household spends Rs 2500 per month on eating out and that north Indian food is the ultimate cuisine choice when eating out.

Interestingly, almost half of the restaurant orders placed in India are for north Indian cuisine, starting from chapatis to dal to paneer and the top-favourite tandoori chicken. Mughlai cuisine which has origins in northern India in states like Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and also among ex-pats in Pakistan, is one of the top favourites.

Delhi and Delhiites, in particular, are right at the top of the list as they eat out six times a month on average. This not only corroborates the fact that when it comes to food Delhi is the capital of India, but also that the foodie Delhiites need no special occasions to dine out.

Sandoz delights the Delhi palate

Delhi owes its unique food culture and the love for diverse cuisines to the countless restaurants, dhabas and an enviable variety of street food. Understanding Delhi’s penchant for all things authentic and delicious, Sandoz has expanded its footprint here with a number of restaurants, banquets and lounges in North Delhi.

The Sandoz chain of restaurants is an initiative of Sandoz Hospitality Private Limited, widely recognized as one of the fastest-growing hospitality businesses across India. With specialities and signature dishes like Bhatti chicken, butter chicken and Dal Makhani, the Sandoz brand of restaurants have captured Delhiites’ imagination when it comes to Mughlai cuisine.

The first and most iconic outlet at Karol Bagh has stood the test of time and the city’s evolving taste buds. Sandoz at Karol Bagh was launched in the early 1960s, serving authentic Punjabi food at its outlet on the main Arya Samaj Road. With the legacy of more than 50 years, it continues to charm patrons and shoppers in Karol Bagh even today.

Their flagship restaurant Sandoz at Lajpat Nagar is a beautiful dining out experience owing to its vintage charm and colonial architecture. What was originally a huge, old sprawling bungalow is now restored and refurbished to house a restaurant, albeit preserving its old-world beauty.

In addition, Sandoz has launched restaurants at 11 other locations including Ashok Vihar, Connaught Palace, Rajouri Garden, Pashchim Vihar, Tilak Nagar, Karol Bagh, D B Gupta road among others. Three deluxe lounges cater to the luxury dining and lounging niche, serve a mix of North Indian, Pan-Asian, Continental and Lebanese cuisine amidst an elegant ambience as well as provide a range of entertainment options.

Sandoz has also carved its reputation for some of the most well-designed banquet halls at prime locales in North Delhi.

With its roots firmly entrenched in the restaurant, Sandoz has a finger on the city’s pulse and is set to tickle and delight the Delhi palate.
