Jayant Chaudhary, a trained patisserie chef at Trident Gurgaon, New Delhi loved everything about his job except following orders. He wanted to create food he could call his own, food that satisfied him creatively and food that people would come back for. To gauge people's interest and test his own cooking skills out, Jayant started a small stall in Satyaniketan market. After a brief, unsuccessful stint at soups and shawarmas, he moved on to doing crazy experiments with maggi and pasta which made him a favourite among the students of the campus. He knew it was time to get a bigger kitchen! And that's how Crazy Kitchen Rooftop Cafe came into being.

Tucked beautifully on the rooftop of a 5-storied building opposite Sri Venkateswara College, the cafe is away from the chaos of the busy south campus area even while being bang in the middle of it all-  the view is totally worth the slightly tiring climb. 

Goan feels


The cafe is made up like a Goan shack with colourful wooden furniture, bamboo walls, hanging pots and lanterns. However, it is currently under renovation and as per the plans, the new decor is likely to remind you of Greece. They are also creating a lounge area on the 4th floor, which makes sense- given Delhi's weather. The outdoor area however, has plenty of fans and air conditioning that make the temperature bearable. The music is great too, I would definitely recommend visiting in the evening.


Food with quirk+love

The owner's involvement in cooking and serving the food gives this place a very homely, personal touch. The menu comprises of a little bit of everything- Italian, Mexican, Asian and American. I started my evening with a Black Mojito- it was basically virgin mojito but with Coke! Nothing fancy but super-refreshing. The cold coffee too, is a safe bet. They've got a good variety of shakes if you're in the mood for one! 

Do not leave without having the Crazy Kitchen special Nachos- topped with corn, bell peppers, onion and SO MUCH CHEESE! My Masala Fries came, much to my amusement, in a dust pan, with a yummy seasoning and mayonnaise. Paneer Shashlik had a delicious marination but I found the cottage cheese slightly chewy for my taste. The creamy, cheesy Penne Alfredo made up for it, though.  Non vegetarians, there's quite a lot for you- the Coronation Chicken however, deserves the most attention. 







They are still working on the desserts menu but luckily, they had whipped up a Key Lime Pie that day! It was beautiful- not spectacular looking but the kind of stuff midnight cravings are made of. I REALLY hope it is added to the menu soon!

The cafe's USP is the beautiful rooftop, a menu that spoils you for choice and the warmth with which you're treated. Great food at great price- go for it!
