In a small crescent of New Delhi, packed between houses of under secy's lies a stretch of land famous for its Butter Chicken and Brain Curry - for people acquainted with New Delhi, this is almost synonymous to The Pindi Restaurant.The Pindi charm has not diminished over the years. Defying traditional business calculations, which put the lifespan of a restaurant at 5 to 10 years, Pindi, which serves hearty Punjabi cuisine, has been around since 1952. Shri K L Wadhwa, its founder had a vision for Pindi which has been carried out successfully through generations.With delicacies like Butter Chicken, Dal Peshawari & Kashmiri Kebabs and specialty dishes like Brain Curry, Keema Kaleji and Mutton Burra Kebab, Pindi is really about GOOD, FINGER LICKING FOOD!

Tourist trap, still food on a ok side

We all know that only tourists go there brought by their drivers. For this reason prices are inflated compared to other similar venues. Food is still tasty and clean, service is decent, so no complains on this side, but man, price makes a difference ...

A mediocre restaurant charging excessively inflated prices to tourists on their first day in Delhi. Not sure what the alternative is though! Other places may not be much better. Street food could nit be worse. Would not go here after reading these reviews. Too late once you have been there. Trinetra took us there - please take this restaurant off... More

Majority of the guests here are tourists and foreigners who don't know what they are paying for. They are ripped off here. I had the most expensive butter chicken from here which also happened to be the worst. You get cheaper food from 5 star hotels bro. BTW, service and ambience was good. But No coming back.

8 members of our family visted the restaurant yesterday. We ordered veg food only - both the starters and main course items were very tasty. Service was very prompt. Staff very courteous. Prices were slightly on the higher side but being located in Pandara Road and frequented by tourists could be reasons for higher prices both in Pindi's and Gulati.... More

We visited this restaurant as part of a day tour. It was a safe choice - it caters largely to tourists - and we didn't know any where else to go ourselves. Service was quick and efficient, but impersonal. Expensive by Indian standards. Place was busy when we visited, and we had to share a table with some other visitors... More

Was out here for a quick dinner, as we could not find a place at Gulati and the team did not disappoint us on the food. The décor is average, but do not go on their décor, the food was very good. My friends and I enjoyed the every bite, and their breads are great.
