“The minute this was brought to my notice, early this morning, I instantly messaged Sangeeta to apologise personally,” Mr Khanijo wrote on Twitter.

“The gentleman in the video is a new team member and his opinion is his alone and in no way a representation of my or the team’s view on the dress code restrictions.

“What the hell! If this Kylin and Ivy or any other restaurant still follows such colonial practices of not allowing guests wearing ethnic clothes, their licenses should be immediately cancelled. Shame!,” she tweeted tagging Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Prime Minister’s Office.
