Our Experience

After a tiring day at work, we went there to catch an event but we reached early!

While waiting we ordered Old Monk and a plate of Spaghetti Bolognese with saucy meatballs. The spaghetti was a bit spicy but it was utterly scrumptious which absolutely won over our palates!

We Recommend

If you ever visit this joint, which you definitely should, do try out their pasta.

If you’re not a pasta person, you can also sample Garden Pizza, Peri Peri Chicken Tikka and the Chicken Nachos!

Hookkapani Baithak has actually lived up to the hype and their impeccable service coupled with economical pricing is certainly a pleasure to experience!
