We loved Saravanaa Bhavan, on Janpath near Connaught Place. It's not a fancy place, but has a wonderful selection of dosas and other fabulous food. It's also close to great shopping at Central Cottage Emporium.

In Connaught Place I like Qba and United Coffee House. The restaurants in the Imperial are also nice.

Bukhara in Maurya Sheraton is the most famous, but also 360 in the Oberoi and the Orient Express in Taj Palace (the one next to Maurya Sheraton, there several Tajs and I get confused with the names).

The Spice Route at the Imperial was once voted among the top ten restaurants in the world by Condé Nast Traveler. They serve South Indian Kerala cuisine (a very different sort of cooking, with coconut). They also have Sri Lankan, Thai, Malay, Indonesian food.

If you want to try places other than the Imperial, there are many five star restaurants to choose from. Delhi is home to several excellent restaurants that serve a wide range of Indian cuisines.

First of all, there is the place that Clinton ate at - Bukhara. The cuisine is called Northwest Frontier cuisine, essentially a sort of rugged barbecue cooking. Bukhara is at the ITC Maurya Sheraton.

The Maurya Sheraton also has another restaurant, Dum Pukht, which serves a style of slow cooking that evolved to suit the luxury loving nawabs of the province of Oudh. Dum Pukht is a refined cuisine characterised by delicate and subtle spicing that brings out the flavour of the food by letting it cook in covered dishes.

A third type of cuisine you can try is Kashmiri Cuisine, which is served at Chor Bizarre on Asaf Ali Road. This style of cooking is very mildly spiced, in fact I think several dishes have raisins in them. Try their platter that allows you to sample a wide variety of stuff, and don't miss kahwa, fragrant Kashmiri tea.


The Dhaba restaurant at Claridges serves traditional highway cuisine (Punjabi cuisine) in a rustic setting, reminiscent of a typical north Indian dhaba (truckers roadside stop). Another Punjabi-style restaurant that is very popular with tourists is Moti Mahal on Pandara Road, you'll always find many tourists eating there...this is possibly closest to "curry" but more delicious :) Pandara Road also has another place called Have More (I smile every time I see that name). And Gulati or some such name, next to Have More. All of these tend to serve good butter chicken.

Aangan at the Hyatt Regency does good kebabs and they have a large vegetarian option as well. They have a set platter for lunch which is is quick and convenient.
