Qla is a modern European-style eatery intimately tucked away behind the Qutub Minar, with a fresh yet relaxed atmosphere teamed with cutting-edge natural appeal. The name is a play on the word qila, which in Hindi means ‘castle’ or ‘fort’. It thrives on high Indian hospitality standards, standing true to its name.

The restaurant offers patrons a welcoming courtyard with long, informal wooden tables and benches that provide a highly convivial and social atmosphere. The interiors reflect minimalistic, international design sensibilities that are a refreshing change from the clutter of the rest of the city.

Qla serves stylish European fare with French, Italian and Spanish influences, complemented by a fabulous array of wines and cocktails. The menu has an abundance of innovative and classic flavours with a focus on grilled meats, steaks, local seafood and social platters.

Avant-garde cocktails combine intricate preparation with unique textures and balanced flavours. The restaurant evolves in its offerings with seasonal menus, emphasising local produce and unique wine programs.

The warm interiors, with classic café chairs and wood decor, create the ideal getaway for the connoisseur. Different genres of music and a perfect setting create an alluring mood that lingers in the mind. Tones of black, rustic gold and fern green have been tastefully used to create an ambience that’s straight out of a European bistro.
