Open right next to the once very happening White Waters, Barush is a cosy restaurant+lounge by the same owners and could be your new everyday chilling place. I liked that it is not overly fancy like all the restaurants opening up in CP, most of which are unnecessarily extravagant. 

The menu is simple yet innovative, your favourite dishes presented with a fun twist. I began with Karele ki Chaat, batter fried bitter gourd rings served with tomato, onion and a drizzle of tamarind chutney. While the crispy karela rings were a pleasant surprise for my taste buds, I couldn't help but feel like something's missing- a light drizzle of curd perhaps, could have made a difference. Moving on, the Corn and Cottage cheese salad was more chakna than salad- crispy fried cubes of paneer and spinach and corn kernels with a hint of garlic and lemongrass, it was like a Chinese starter, only milder and better. 

If you love Mushroom, they've got a beautiful platter {see feature image} with mushrooms served three ways- stuffed mushroom tikkas, crispy mushroom cups {my favourite} and fried mushroom balls. From the starters, I highly recommend the melt in mouth palak+ khumb ki galouti. The Soya Gola Kebabs had a great crispy skin but the stuffing was rather dry and did not excite me much.

Paneer Tikka Naan Pizza was loaded with cheese and toppings, the tangy chutney used as a spread gave the pizza a very desi twist. My favourite was however, the Paneer Platter from the tiffin meals. It comprises of shahi paneer, dal makhni, raita and rice/Indian breads- a complete north Indian meal!

Go for for Adam's Apple and Daiquiri cocktail from the drinks menu. For dessert, I'd recommend vodka-infused phirnee on cookie crumble- it's not too sweet and has a nice custardy texture. 

Barush is a pleasantly lit and quiet place- perfect if you're going in a small group. The menu is largely North Indian but they do have some Italian and Oriental signatures that you can choose from. The best section is definitely the Barush Tiffin Meals- great variety and value for money. There is a good amount of novelty in the menu and the prices are not exorbitant- go, try it out!
