Ten-Second Takeaway

We recently stumbled upon Over D Top Bistro – a spacious cafe in Amar Colony, on the third floor right above Pizza Hut. With a painfully colourful terrace, super loud music and shisha at affordable prices, this is the perfect hub for college students.

A quirky terrace, perfect for the winter month

Are You Game?

Go up a far-from-glamorous stairway to a spacious terrace with colourful walls and cushions; just follow the sound of loud, loud music.

We’ve always had a liking for places which keep board games for those moments when conversation isn’t thriving {nothing’s more awkward than a group of people sitting in silence, don’t you think?} and we were happy to see Over D Top’s stock of Pictionary, Chess, Ludo and Uno.

Now if only they’d drop the volume a notch… or 10.

Sizzlers And Smoke

The menu, as is the norm with most student-friendly cafes, isn’t the most extensive, but whatever we ordered, we liked. ┬áThis includes the Chicken Basil Sizzler which comes sizzling hot in a large lettuce cup; it essentially tasted like the quintessential chilli chicken with bits of basil leaves thrown in and mixed with a portion of rice {or noodles}.

The Crumbly Mushrooms were another winner, with their crispy outer layer and cheesy insides. And if you’re very hungry, the creamy pesto pasta might be the best-o.

Wash it all down with a shake {we like the Frozen Apple Pie} or a smoothie {Kiwi Basil all the way} for best results. And if you like blowing some smoke rings, their shisha {priced at INR 399} will serve you well. They’ve got the standard flavours along with a few paan variants and a flavour mysteriously named 666.

So, We’re Saying…

Over D Top isn’t your place if you’re looking for good conversation {and please don’t go here for a date} but if you seek loud thumping music, great hookah and some tasty fare at affordable prices, it’s worth a climb.
