Talking about the idea behind getting the old menu back to Copper Chimney, Karan Kapoor said, "Copper Chimney has catered to multiple generations in numerous families. The legacy begins from the time when the grandparents were only parents, when the parents were only children, and today when those parents are bringing their children along to Copper Chimney. People have countless fond memories of dining at Copper Chimney over the years and with that level of emotion and nostalgia, we had a host of guests reminisce of dishes they had in the early 1970’s, 1980’s or 1990’s. Keeping this in mind, Copper Chimney has found a way to pay tribute to the fond memories of its guests at Copper Chimney over the years, than recreate and reintroduce many of those specials off our original menu."

Our Kabuli Naan made with dry fruits, has made a comeback, and has had a cult following with Copper Chimney loyalists who have shared feedback to bring this dish back to our menu as well. We suggest for the fish lovers, Tandoori Pomfret will be a perfect dish, Kalmi Kebab for the chicken lovers. The Kabuli Naan served at Copper Chimney is never to miss for the bread aficionados and Mushroom Kheema for vegetarians. "
