Our guide in Delhi suggested Pindi's for lunch. He mentioned the food was good and that the restaurant was "hygenic" for us foreign visitors. We appreciated that. We were pleasantly surprised at the range of choices on the menu. We chose non-veg dishes, all of which were quite tasty! The naan and gulab jamun were especially delicious. Great stop for... More

Had a business dinner. The food was very nice and tasty. However, the best part was sitting next to the national award winner, actor Rajkumar Rao.

We were taken to Pindi's by our driver, who was taking us on a tour of sights in Delhi. He recommended the place for our lunch and we were very happy with his choice. After persuading our driver, Aravind, to join us and help us pick the dishes we should have, we were brought a rang of very tasty dishes.... More

It is one of the oldest eateries in that part of delhi and serves delicious veg and non veg dishes. I personally like there tawa vegetables and chicken tikka masala served with naan. One of the highly recommended places to visit while in Delhi for a good indian meal.

Restaurant does not serve alcohol. Staff hovered around, made us feel uncomfortable. Had extensive menu but when we ordered many choices were not available. Food was tastefully presented. Food was tasty. Restaurant is modern, no warmth. Bill was $60 for the three of us. After three weeks in India bill with alcohol is usually about $40. Two of us were... More

Good ambience and service. The quality of food and flavours are very much as per the Indian Palate.. The prices are a tad steeper than what you would expect in a restaurant of this calibre. Nevertheless, the experience of dining will negate the cost implications. Highly recommend the Burra.. simply melts in your mouth.
