Vijay's Chawalla is an amazing indian café. It's perfect place to go to for a masala tea and a few snacks during the afternoon. The service is excellent and the waitors are very friendly. We love the food so much that whenever we go there, we eat loads and then take a takeaway. It is also brilliant for Indian sweets. Last diwali we ordered our indian sweets (barfi) from there and they were fantastic. So colourful, freshly made and wonderful taste.
Now, I come from an Indian family where we eat freshly cooked punjabi food on a daily basis but the taste of the food there is different. It is more Dehli/Mumbai sort of food. The cooks really capture the essence of what street food is like in India
Things that tend to put people off:
Toilets - Some people have said the toilets are dirty but they are not dirty - in fact toilets are relatively clean and it is matter of who has used them before you. They regulary clean them but if some random person comes and makes them dirty, then that is unlucky.
Hygene - Although there are some restaurants nearby which are not hygenic at all, chawallas a very hygenic place where everything is clean.
Regarding what you order, I recommend all the chaats, spicy paneer, masala chips channa masala with puris, potato curry, jeera rice, mango lassi, masala tea, falooda
All the food is served as it should be (hot/cold) and I've never eaten a bad dish!!!
