“Worth the hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Simply put, Bukhara was an excellent experience for my wife and I. Yes it is not cheap but the best things in life are generally not. We had the paneer tikka, the tandoori chicken, the Dal Bukhara, naan and romali roti and every single item was made to perfection. Coupled with the remarkable service, the place truly deserves the title of best Indian restaurant on the planet. We are looking forward to the day that we can go back again!

“The best barbeque in Delhi.Very pricy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

A limited menu but outstanding food. The Sikandari Raan, the Burra kebab and the seekhs are all outstanding. Talk to the kitchen to understand the making - a great place to take foreign guests. Eating with hands alone is always interesting.

“Very Expensive Kabobs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This is an interesting restaurant to go to. It's fun to sit at stools, wear an apron and watch what's going on in the kitchen. The menu is very expensive for what you get. The service is friendly, but hectic. The lamb and cream chicken kabobs were excellent. The rest of the kabobs were just mediocre. The raita was some of the best I've had. Bread was very mediocre. Feels like this place is more show than substance. Not sure why it's so highly rated. It's good, but not great, except for the first two dishes.

“Much hyped place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

It is so expensive and yet serves cuisine that is just above average. Yes the style is unique as they expect you to eat with hands, desi style, and hence give you aprons to wear before you eat but i would say not worth the value of money you spend at this joint. Small place so you have to line-up and this shows as if it is a very sought-after place. Dal bukhara is very popular, it is nice but again nothing exceptional or different.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Excellent North Indian cuisine at the ITC Maurya. We loved the food and service there especially the Tandooris. Ask them to visit the kitchen to understand better about North Indian food.
