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.

We went there on recommendation of our driver and found this place to be fabulous. The decor is very modern and elegant. The staff is incredibly attentive to your needs and food was excellent, both veg and non-veg items. We ordered the full portion of butter chicken for me and my 2 sons and still there was more than half... More

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.

We ordered Veg & Non Vegetarian Platter, a Dal Fry, some breads (Garlic naan). The platter comprises chicken and lamb tikkas, fish amritsari kabab, a leg of tandoori murg, seekh kabab, marinades with ajwain and jeera to regular ginger-garlic paste. The kebabs are cooked very good still retaining a meaty bite and flavourful right through. Place had good hygienic conditions... More

Would heartily agree with previous comments. Very busy , with lots of Tourists on Delhi Day Trip. We ordered Chicken Tikka, which we had to send back as it appeared undercooked. Replacment was brought grudgingly. Although bill said service not included, waiter told us three time" service not included"

I've been visiting this restaurant every time I was in need of a butter chicken fix. Must say, this restaurant offers the best butter chicken. Wouldn't say much about the rest of their food, just above average.

Got taken there by tame tour driver (that alone speaks volumes). Okayish service and clean area but the food is poorly seasoned yet at the same time bland and hugely overpriced. Not a good experience at all.

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
