Amrik Sukhdev dhaba is a well-known highway dhaba to frequent travelers and delhi NCR people. Among young people and family, it is one of the popular hangout destination. Less of a dhaba and more of a restaurant these days, this place has lost its charm and taste.
Not more than 4 years back it was equally crowded but the interior and decoration was very basic. Nowadays, it is flourished with marble walls, mall type washrooms, glassed counters, fountains, fancy lights and what not. Out of all the requirements, they missed the most important one like service, taste and management. Crowd is getting increased day by day because of the hype and nothing more. In the late hours of night also, it is brightened by bunch of families, youngsters and highway travelers.
With such a huge crowd, a good management is inevitable. At counter, you will be shouting on top of your voices for your orders (if you want to get it packed or want to sit in open air to eat) but they will bother at their own pace. Service is very slow and is getting slower day by day. Most popular food items that attracts so many customers are their paratha with butter (lot of butter) and tea. I can bet on this that after waiting for at least 15-20 minutes, you would say or at least feel that it’s not worth the wait. Taste is totally neutral of paratha as well as of makkhan. One can get a much better taste at many other outlets/Dhabas/Restaurants at a very less service time. Only the tea is good enough.
One thing that needs to be said here is that in the race of glamour and dazzle, taste, quality and customers are getting far lagged behind. With lot of other alternatives around, this dhaba is running solely on the bases of its hype, prestige and name nowadays.
