“It is so thrilling to maintain a balance between patrons of classical food and the smart millennial looking for something different,” says Chef Priyam Kumar, who heads all the outlets of Rewind, a chic offshoot of the legendary 75-year-old United Coffee House. 

Founded by Akash Kalra, the third generation restaurateur of the group, families visiting the restaurant have their own preferences — the grandfather wants his classic Lahori meat; father orders a Calcutta Club Cutlets (CCC) with fried chops; the fitness-conscious son calls for a low-calorie quinoa salad and the granddaughter wants a dabeli. “It is wonderful to be able to cater to each one’s taste under one roof,” says the suave Kalra. “I wish to keep up the tradition of being a warm and inviting space, serving comfort food with a casual and contemporary retro vibe, reminiscent of the bygone era.”

And that precisely explains why Rewind’s menu runs in several pages offering 400 dishes and more. 
While signatures are showstoppers like Keema Samosa, Tomato Fish, Railway Mutton Curry, there is an effort to offer regional and local food ranging from Punjabi to Konkani and everything in between. 
Not to forget the unique Tiffin Dabba concept, so beautifully lapped up by youngsters as they bring a renewed meaning to ‘home food served out of home’.

It was opened with an aim to bring the diverse characteristics of Delhi under one roof and offered an open environment where the discerning clients could sit, relax, interact and have a rendezvous and hold a intellectual discussions.
