Food & Drink


For decades Delhi has been the center of food revolution in India. This is the city which gave the world butter chicken and tandoori chicken which has now become one of the most popular dishes in the world. Also this city is known for its street food which many foreigners may not find it hygienic or even palatable but average Delhiite prefers eating from these street joints and some of them even rival the top and popular restaurants in this city.

However there is nothing like going out for nice lunch or dinner with friends & family and I am going to list some the best places in Delhi NCR where you can enjoy a very happy dining experience. Also the experience is further elevated when the ambience is perfect for you and your entourage to relax and enjoy quality meal along with fun conversation.
