I can only guess that the person who reviewed this place for lonely planet never ate here. Hotel restaurant with no atmosphere and eye watering prices. Food was fine but we ate a lot better for a lot less. I wouldn't bother eating here!

A quirky interior, I guess a take on a traditional roadside food stall. Food and service was excellent. As a guest of the hotel I had no problem finding a table, however pre booking seems to be a good idea.

I had been in a retreat for a week and before I returned to the Uk wanted to experience a few good Indian Restaurants, as I was staying at the hotel overnight I thought, why not, try this one.

I ate dinner here two of three evenings while in Delhi on business. I stayed just down the street at the Taj Mahal and enjoyed a ten-minute walk over to The Claridges for something different. You should make a reservation if you want to dine after 7:30. I showed up without one and enjoyed a 45-minute wait in the front... More

Try Jumbo King Prawn cooked in spices. Dal is another specialty which deserve attention. If unsure, ask the chef Mr. Sweety Singh who will help choose or recommend.

This was the first place we ate when we arrived in India and it was an exceptional place to start! We ended up eating here again the following day as well. It certainly wasn't one of the cheapest places we ate but was one of the best!

They have taken great care in the food and decor to bring the Northern Indian influence here. I had an eggplant dish with the roumali (spelling) roti and it was very delicious. Topped it off with a traditional chai tea. I liked how they accompany the meal with a large plate of raw onions, lemon, some spice and chilies...perfect!
