If you are one of those people like me who love pizza then don’t worry, you are in luck. There are places in India for example the Pizza Hut where you can eat. The good thing is that you will find them in most major cities and towns of India. Although you may not find Pizza Hut in smaller towns and villages but most metros and larger towns of India will have them. If you are travelling to Delhi then there’s one in the popular destination of Connaught Circus in Connaught Place in Delhi.
The one shown in the picture above is the Pizza Hut of Amritsar (Punjab) in the main tourist area of Lawrence Road in Joshi Colony. World renowned for its pizza, this establishment in Amritsar will not let you down. In fact, the menu here is better and has more selections than the original American counterpart. You will find that there are more vegetable options available as well as some uniquely Indian selections.
The seating areas of Pizza Huts in India are similar to the American restaurants. You are bound to feel at home. The staffs here are generally attentive as well as friendly and there is always an employee that speaks fluent English. In fact, most if not all of them will be able to speak English. You can custom order “speciality” pizzas and drinks and they will understand your request.
One good thing about the Pizza Hut in Amritsar is that the serving station for drinks and desserts is in full view of the dining area. This gives you the opportunity to see how attentive the staff are and how your items are handled.
Typical music playing in these restaurants is American. However, occasionally you will hear words that would be censored by American media and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) but not in India. In fact, average Indian people don’t know or don’t understand these words anyway. Akon and Eminem seem to be favourites on the radio station they play.
If you fancy your pizza delivered at your hotel, then you can have that too. You will need to ask your hotel about the local Pizza Hut. Delivery is available within 3 KM (approximately 1.5 miles) from the store. Some items are not available for delivery because they cannot be hygienically delivered. Some items are unavailable for delivery or takeaways because containers would compromise the integrity of the dish – for example, the cheesecake platter.
Average cost of a meal for one person is approximately 350 Indian National Rupee ($8 US and Aus) for a custom personal pan pizza without dessert included (this price includes a special drink as pictured and not a soda).
