Very noisy beer joint, casual staff, average beer is the only attraction of this otherwise not so friendly place, a tad seedy, kept in the dark to protect the anonymity of its local customers. Not recommended for a business lunch

Great, informal bar/cafe for food and beer. Seemed to be popular with younger locals and had a good atmosphere. We ate on the rooftop with great views over the bazaar road. Staff were great and we really enjoyed our food. Recommended for an evening beer.

We came here for the beer, which was good, but quite expensive. The food was average. The restaurant is dark, but if you get a table at the window, it is a good place to spot street life.

I had visited here with my friends. Its located in hotel vivek which hardly 4 to 5 min walk from metro station. Lots of variety in food and drinks. Ambience was decent and crowd was also good. Must visit pace if you are near by.

Sam's Café, nestled in the shady and popular main street of Paharganj. The Rooftop Café is quite a place to enjoy a chilly winter evening or a lazy breakfast! Their menu is decently varied and food is fabulous. The servers are attentive yet not intrusive....More
