Quotes
"The composition of the dish was a work of artistry, like some crazy abstract painting, as it put together such different tasting food together with perfection and not a thing felt out of place." So Delhi
"The salmon is undoubtedly the best meal I have had outside my home in a VERY LONG time. The fillets were cooked in dill, butter, and garlic, on a bed of light and flavoursome cous cous, which had ruby flecks of sweet pickled beets. " Little Black Book Delhi

About Barsoom

Barsoom is the perfect place to meet for drinks, hold your meetings or go out for a meal with friends and family.

We pride ourselves on offering quality food inspired by cuisines from all over the world. We have a menu of award-winning deserts, tapas, pastas and salads alongside our classic cafe-bar fare, like our ever popular lamb burgers. There is always a great selection of vegetarian food on offer too.

It's the perfect place to grab your morning coffee and get some work done to nice music in a beautiful atmosphere. Barsoom serves the same delicious, fresh-ground, organic coffee from the Flipside Cafe.

Barsoom is designed by the team behind the Flipside Cafe. Raavi Choudhury, and his wife Shreya Sharma started the Flipside Cafe in 2011. In 2012 NDTV nominated Flipside for the 'best coffee and desserts menu' in India. The Flipside was one spot away from serving the finest desserts in India, after the Oberoi Hotel. After this success, Raavi and Shreya went back to the drawing board to conceptualise 'Barsoom'.

Barsoom is a 50 seater Bistro with a fully-licensed bar. The space has a science fiction theme and is dedicated to becoming a space for creative professionals. A place for thinkers and doers to meet and collaborate. All our events are future oriented: be it our fundraiser for the future of Kashmir's flood victims; our Women's Business day celebration of female entrepreneurs or October's events calendar of futuristic, electronic music.

Our upcoming plans are to introduce businesses membership and networking events for creative professionals as well as a business-of-the-month awards for the people behind the most interesting businesses in Delhi.
