Home Delivery | MKT at The Chanakya


After writing about my experience of dining at numerous restaurants over the years, I am happy to get back to sharing my love for dining out as well as ordering in. 

The Post-Covid world, however, requires more details that readers would be keen to know about, over and above the taste and quality of the food. Hope you enjoy this new format. And please do let me know if you’d like me to elaborate on more aspects. 

Delivery: I had requested for the food to be delivered at 8pm and I received it by 8.10pm. Pretty much on time! The restaurant is using Zomato as their delivery partner. You can find the menu and place your order on the app. 

Packaging: All the dishes came individually packaged in labeled plastic disposable boxes that we transferred into my home crockery immediately. I do wish that more and more restaurants start using biodegradable packaging going forward. I am specifically putting it out there because change will happen when customers demand it! 

Menu Options: MKT is known for its extensive choice of cuisines and even for home delivery you’ll find everything from Asian and Mexican to European, Middle Eastern and Indian fare. To give you an idea of the choice available: Indian dishes include street food, rolls, stuffed paranthas, appetisers and mains as one would expect, biryanis and coastal fare.

Food Taste & Quality: I opted for the MKT signatures from the Oriental section and some Italian. The Chinese dishes at the restaurant have always been popular and fabulous. I would definitely recommend that you order Chinese from here. The previous weekend I had ordered in from another popular Chinese restaurant but unfortunately the food was not as great as it is when you dine in there, but I am happy to report that that was not the case at MKT. The udon noodles and MKT chicken were as delicious as they are when served in the restaurant. I would even give a thumbs-up to the chicken chilli oil dimsum. The chilli oil was packed separately though, and that worked well. The chicken tortellini came tossed in the Bolognese sauce. Even though the sauce was rich and very tasty, the dish became a little dry. If you order this dish, and I recommend you to do so, just request them to send the sauce separately so that you can toss it together for a highly satiating bowl of stuffed pasta. The Jasper pizza is topped with chicken and roasted peppers. Although the taste of the toppings was good, the base was a tad thick and dry for my liking. I would suggest that you stick to ordering in pizzas from one of the many other great choices in the city since there are quite a few now. And finally, the dessert – Belgium chocolate torte. It is a pity that given the weather, the torte didn’t hold its shape by the time it reached me, but it still tasted fantastic. The silky mousse-like texture literally melted in the mouth. And yes, it is definitely made with Belgian chocolate!
