A gastropub created as a result of being stuck in jams and hearing traffic updates on the radio. Yes, that is the inspiration behind Traffic Gastropub, a place already creating a lot of waves in the New Town area. I went there last weekend and can say that I quite enjoyed getting Stuck in Traffic!
With bright lights, colorful posters and quirky wall art and installations, Traffic is the perfect chill zone. There’s a 25 feet long bar, there’s a DJ console that doubles up as a live performance area, there’s shisha and there’s yummy pub food and drinks.
Traffic Gastropub Menu
Here are my picks from the menu.
Daru Ki Tanki – a potent mix of White Rum, Old Monk, Banana Liqueur, Bailey’s, Pineapple Juice, Fresh cream along with banana slices served in a copper Samovar. This Pina Colada meets Old Monk meets Bananas sounds kinda weird but everything comes together pretty well.
Long Island Peach Iced Tea – This one’s a classic but at Traffic, the size is double of what you get elsewhere!
Chilli Chicken Pizza – Chunky pieces of Chilli Chicken on a bed of cheese. Yass!!
Parmesan Crusted Fish – Strips of fish coated with a generous amount of parmesan cheese and baked to perfection.
Chicken Poutine – French fries tossed in house sauce and topped with chicken and cheese. Perfect grub to munch along with some chilled beer
Murg Kasmiri Kabab – A delightful combination of chicken mince stuffed in chicken breasts, marinated in spices and yoghurt and prepared in a Tandoor
Shish Kabab Roll – ‘Mutton got stuck in a Traffic roll’ is how the menu describes this dish. This is basically mutton seekh kabab rolls hung on a skewer.
Oreogasm – Traffic’s signature dessert. A bed of cheesecake topped with Oreo cookies, chocolate sauce and Gems. Dieter’s delight! 🙂
Traffic Gastropub No Refusal Menu
Traffic is making waves for another reason as well. It has the cheapest Happy Hours in the city with drinks and cocktails starting at only Rs 49!!

Old Monk at Rs 49, Smirnoff vodka at Rs 75, Cocktails starting at Rs 74 and 330 ml of beer at Rs 99 only. Happy you and happy wallet!

I was invited by the management to dine at Traffic for review purpose.
