Go Cinematic at ‘Lights Camera Action’
‘Lights Camera Action’ or LCA is a Bollywood themed lounge just close to the Rajouri Garden Metro Station, Delhi. Welcomed by The Iron Man, the restaurant is situated over 2 floors one being an open Air-bar. Here is an exclusive review about the restaurant concept, theme and food which become operational just 3 days back. The Bollywood/Cinema theme is all over the place, right from the tripod tables to the cinema lights to the bar setting to the selfie wall to the sharabi glasses. LCA has an inhouse DJ that plays great numbers and keep the party mood going.
The concept of Lights Camera Action is unique and can be seen deeply embedded unlike other places. The staff members wear Bollywood t-shirts with interesting one liner. Lights Camera Action is written in bold letters on one of the walls while the other wall is decorated with captivating posters. Don’t forget to read them out loud. The menu is designed completely keeping the Bollywood names/dialogues in mind. LCA is one of the few restaurants in Delhi NCR were you can experience fusion molecular gastronomy coming alive infront of your eye.
