This area is a small market place with 4 to 5 restaurants and an ice cream parlour. Delhi drivers engaged with tourism typically brings the guests to this place for lunch and dinner and I wish to believe that there is no commission involved because there are quite a few restaurants and guests might select any of them. Practically its... More

Pindi is a nice restaurant in Delhi, with Western standards of comfort and hospitality, but with a strict menu of Indian tradition . We took a simple chicken tandoori , and really impressed me the quality and flavor of the meat. Mixed Indian and European customers Great welcome. Fast service. Account low , it is worth .

Great, traditional, tasty Indian food with quality service with a smile. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here after a long morning of site seeing. Meals were large and we struggled to finish what we thought would be just enough. Decor fancy and ambience relaxing. Will visit again on our next trip.
