Overlooking the landscaped lawns of Joseph Stein’s beautifully designed Triveni Kala Sangam is the Tea Terrace, a much-loved Delhi institution. For decades it was the hub for radicals, artists, writers and thinkers. The signboard sums it up: ‘staff, students, artists and art lovers only. Outsiders not permitted’.
Triveni has been updated over the years, and now has a small indoor seating area with fans. The food remains honest and wholesome, and the low prices have been kept. The parathas (flaky flat bread) are legendary along with excellent kebabs, omelettes, sandwiches, cakes and delicious hot chai.
