Wonderful atmosphere, nice staff, cheap and tasty food (we had omelets and pancakes). Opens right onto the streets.

We had dinner here on our second night in Delhi. The food was cold, the service was terrible (drinks came after dinner), and we both got very ill from the food. Ruined our time in Delhi.

An average place to have food/snacks. Service and food quality was ok but not great. Can be tried once.

Unbelievable. They didn't have anything available of the menue. After the waiter screemed at us they only have toast we left. I have seen a lot of dirty restaurants in India, but this one was one of a kind disgusting.

Madan is a wonderful budget street cafe on the Main Bazaar, good for cheap food and to watch the madness hurry past. Service was quick and friendly and the thali was generous.

I want to know if Mr. Madan still sees Ajeetpal and would give some money to him if I find someone to take it to Delhi. Thanks much. Doris Tuck "The Mother of Tom"
