A restaurant really stands out when not only the food is amazing but also when they are theme based. The concept takes us back to the colonial times, you would see guns and badges hanging on the wall.
If you want good music, you can go sit upstairs but if you just want to have a quiet and a peaceful time, prefer sitting downstairs.
The service was very quick, don't even get me started on the presentation as i can go on and on about it as it was bang on!

First of all we were welcomed with AMOUSE BOUCH.
In the beverages we ordered OREO SHAKE and MILITARY CAMP. The shake was thick, chocolaty and oh god! So heavy. The drink was refreshing as it was a mix of various fruits. People come here for all kinds of cocktails but having this mocktail won't disappoint you.
Coming to the food..
• BEETROOT KI GALOUTI - I hesitated at first but this item was too good to miss. Being a die hard non vegetarian, i can't deny that i'll prefer this over some non veg dishes. Smoky beetroot inside the crispy coating of galouti took my breath away.
• RAINBOW PIZZA - This exotic vegetable pizza was different than all the other pizzas i've ever tried, it looked thin crust but wasn't exactly that. It was, i would say, medium thick yet it was light. Really fresh.
• RDX CHILLY PANEER - A very basic dish but the taste was fancy. Yes i can i have it from any other chinese van, BUT NO CHINESE VAN CAN COOK IT WITH PERFECTION LIKE THEY DID. The right word is 'delicious'.
• BARRACKS PANEER - You have a choice of choosing between Makhani and Kadhai Paneer, i went with Kadhai Paneer. Also, you are served Dal Makhani to go with the main dish. The staple north indian sabzi, Dal Makhani that is, was up to the mark. Loved it more than the paneer.
• BAKED RASGULLA PIE - Hot Pie served with Vanilla Ice Cream was the perfect end to the evening. The combination of hot and cold in the dessert always works for me.

A really nice place and definitely coming here again to try the non veg side of the menu :)

It is a restaurant with the military theme that shows the life of an army personnel. The interior is fully dedicated to the army with lots of small and big detailings like guns grenade and explosions decoy. The lighting and music are just perfect. They have the best live musicians who sing a great variety of songs non-stop with lots great variations (best live music). The restaurant is divided into 2floors one with music and crowd if u like to party, but if u want to enjoy a meal with your family and have a decent place to sit quietly then there is a separate floor for you. The food and drinks are mouth watering. I tried
1. The Hulk (4/5) this is a special drink served at 38barracs this is a combination of lemonade and mint. It tastes amazingly refreshing.2. Cookies shake(4.5/5) the shake is smooth and it will enlighten your taste buds.3. Boston Beach- I love the presentation, the way they are serving peanuts with the drink is really very innovative.
4. Chicken Satay (4.5/5) one of the finest dish. It tasted amazing and contain all the flavours to please your cravings.5. Paneer tikka Barrels(3.5/5) the presentation is outstanding and it comes in a merry go round which gives the glimpse of the childhood and paneer is soft and best tasted chutney.6. Punjabi regiment favourite chicken (4.5/5)it is a juicy and mouth pleasure to your taste buds that satisfy the urge of the chicken. It is a must try.7. Harrisa chicken tikka (2.5/5) I personally didn't like it. The stuffing feels uncooked because of its stuffing.
For the main course1. Zafrani Sarkari biryani (4/5) the presentation is amazing, love at first sight. The rice is well Cooked and you will get a pleasing taste with every single bite.2. Dal Nizami (3.5/5) the dal tastes above average it lacks the Creamy flavour.3. Baked arugula pie (4.5/5) I have tasted something like this of the very first time. The combination of baked rasgulla and ice cream is amazing and it gives heavenly pleasure to all your taste buds. It is a must try.All over it is a great place to go to with friends and family. The staff and service are amazing.

38 Barrack is a place where you feel like being in a Colonel's Residence. With a unique ambiance surrounding the Indian Army, guns and rifles 38 barracks is unique in itself.

The place serves brilliant and exquisite food accompanied by live music performances. One must definitely try the Hulk, Regiment Spring and Gunner cocktails. The Hulk this is a combination of lemonade and mint. It tastes amazingly refreshing.
Their service was very quick.

This place is an ideal place you want to relax in & have some great delicacies with your favourite drink.
The menu has dishes named after related jargons. The interiors replicate the house of an officer.
We were welcomed with amouse bouch. A small little starter.
In drinks my favorite is the AK 47 SANGRIA, a spiced Red Wine Sangria.
For starters we ordered Beetroot Ki Galouti which is an excellent dish.
Soldier’s Mirchi Wada is as good as it can get – tangy potato filled in banana peppers is served with a date chutney.
Chicken Harissa Tikka stands true to its name and brings out the flavor of the harissa
Olive Chicken Satay was also good.
For the the main course we ordered Barracks Special Butter Chicken, Subz Palak Milloni and Dal Makhani with breads.
Good food, good ambiance, Must place to go out with friends and family.

We were looking for an easy pub with simple Indian nibbles and great drinks and we found it. We had the atom bomb dimsum and twin tikka chicken and both were delicious. The drinks are fun and creative and the staff was nice and efficient. Good music too!
