Delightful fusion food

The restaurant is located at the lower lobby of the Taj Mahal hotel in Delhi. It is famous for the Indo-contemporary fusion food it serves. Would suggest a reservation, especially on a weekend, as it tends to get booked. We had to wait 45 minutes which was long. The restaurant is very well made... read more

Some of the food was amazing - some ordinary. Wine and drinks list poor - as in they did not have most things we ordered. Good meal but not exceptional as would be expected for the price. Also could not believe the number of small kids there

our big family went to Varq in the Diwali season and were highly impressed with the ambience and service. The staff was highly courteous. The food was of generous quantity and quite delicious. All of us came out highly satisfied. Would definitely go again.

I really don't understand why people thinks that an Indian Restaurant should always be cheap. If you would want to eat the best then you will have to pay a decent money. If you go to the very next door Wasabi you are ready to spent money like anything because it's Japanese. For me Varq is the best Indian restaurant... More

If you are fan of chefs stretching creative cuisine, and Indian food , this is an amazing choice. The classic Indian food reinterpreted in non conventional dishes and foods were really terrific. Put this on your New Delhi itinerary for sure. A Fantastic choice.

Highly overpriced and more style statement rather than real good food-you could be disappointed with the visit

This was my third visit to this amazing restaurant in the last one month. We are becoming regulars here which is quite something as we know a thing or two about Indian food. This place was a chance discovery for us but since then considering the quality of food and service I am mighty impresses with the place. One area... More

The crab appetizer was superb as were all the dishes. We tried some Indian wine. The white was OK--eschew the red.

I am not an expert on Indian cuisine, but my "sampler" meal was delicious -- with all sorts of different tastes. Her Ladyship does not like hot spices in her food, and the chef personally met with her and her food was cooked perfectly.

Fabulous quality and tastes. Inventive cuisine. The chef prepared chaat as an amuse buche and it was delicious. The chicken in cream sauce was spectacular.
