“Mughlai Food Paradise”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Sumptuous Mughlai Food with a Kashmiri Twist thrown in. Ordered a Mutton Biryani wonderfully spiced with Cinnamon, some Cardamom and Saffron topped with Crispy fried onions, Mutton Rohan Josh which had some amazing gravy flavoured with a mix of spices to give it that fantastic spicy flavour, some Mughlai Parathas and Roomali Rotis. A twist of Lemon on the lightly red chilli spiced onions and some Green chilies to complete the spread. This is Food Heaven and to attain Nirvana some out of the world Rose an Coconut flavoured Phirni is a must or if you can handle it have the thick Rabri which will settle you down into a deep state of contentment !!!

Dear RedMan47

The staff and the management of NIZAM’S apologies for the delay in responding to your feedback. This is an inadvertent oversight due to changes in crew hierarchy .

Your words of appreciation are being forwarded to the participating team members. They would find your compliments in plenitude most rewarding and gratifying.

Your observations on the Kashmiri fare, Mutton Biryani, Mutton Rohan Josh ,Parathas and Roomali Rotis, chilli spiced onions and Phirni have not gone unnoticed. The fact has been conveyed to the F & B section who ,I am sure, would love the fact and realize that their efforts have been well rewarded

Once again we thank you for your time and effort and look forwarded to welcome you to our units in near future.

Thanking You

“Double chicken ...Double egg at its best”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Nizam's kathi kabab are authentic since long.I have been visiting since many years ...
always order a double egg double chicken kathi!..though the kathis can be a bit greasy but value for money for a quick bite.The place was very clean, ac functioning to optimum. Our orders were ready quick and I can surely say the rolls were finger licking good.Saw some interesting messages on on the straw packing which says Exercise, don't take stress, don't smoke or drink and enjoy our food. They provide us Token which you can take your order number wise. And also it's not take so much time to serve. The visit was worth the taste..

Your words of appreciation are being forwarded to the participating team members. They would find your compliments in plenitude most rewarding and gratifying. It is this evaluation and feedback from our guests that help us the most in streamlining and maintaining our standards of hospitality .

We were a little concerned with your observation about the oil content and would like to inform you that the Kathi Kabab roll requires a certain amount of oil for a thorough cooking process and any dearth of it in the said process makes the under cooked parantha very squidgy , unpalatable , carry a slightly scalded flavor and is also taxing on the digestive system. However we respect your sentiment and would like to inform you that we can do the same rolls, totally without oil in Roomali Roti . If you prefer it such then please convey your preference to the order taker or the service crew and they will make sure your choice is well taken care of.

We would also like to assert that the oil used to cook your parantha is a very good quality RICE BRAN OIL , which has been proved to be at par with Olive oil ! .May we request you visit the link http://foodwatch.com.au/blog/fats-and-oils/item/q-how-does-rice-bran-oil-compare-to-olive-oil.html for further information on the topic. PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT WE DO NOT USE HYDROGENATED FATS, ANIMAL FAT OR LARD IN OUR COOKING PROCESS.

We were glad that our social message campaign was noticed by someone and regime followed .

Once again we thank you for the appreciation extended and for your time and effort and look forward to welcome you to our units in near future.

Thanking You

Rajesh

“Nizami Treat”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Your visit to Connaught place is incomplete if you have missed eating at Nizam’s Kathi kebab.

The place is really old and serves authentic Mughalai food. It’s one of my all time favorite restaurants.

Must haves:

1) Double Chicken Single egg Roll
2) Kali Mirch Chicken Tikka Roll
3) Mutton Seekh Kebab egg Roll
4) Triple combo Roll
5) Super Double combo Roll
6) Chicken Tikka
7) Luqmi Parantha with Banarasi Shahi Paneer
8) Chicken Biryani
9) Masala Cola

The portions are big and the Rolls are oily. But it has so many flavors that you won’t mind eating unhealthy food once in a while. Their Rolls are a complete meal in itself.

The place is always crowded and you have to wait to get the table. You can also share the table. They have self-service and they call you by a number given on your bill.

The décor is simple and minimalistic. They have some old black and white pictures of Connaught place hanging on their wall.

A meal for two costs Rs 500-800 approximately.

Eat at Nizam and cherish the flavors of India.

“Superb!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

A great find in Connaught Place! The food was amazingly delicious and very good value for money, we had a double chicken single egg roll and it truly was great! The restaurant can get very busy so you may have to wait to get a seat, but it is well worth the wait! Good atmosphere, clean and helpful staff.

“Good, Authentic Indian Food”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

You can tell the small restaurant is a favorite among locals, judging by the excited crowds that sit at the utilitarian-style booths. Although I had the dal and a kebab, I was dying to try the delicious friend, roll up sandwich everyone else seemed to be eating. The butter naan was the best I've had in my life. The staff was nice. They were real.
