Initial impressions when you arrive here are that you've not quite found the market. There's none of the usual Indian mayhem at a 'traditional' market. This place is much more civilised and is more of a unique high street than a market.

It's more shops and boutiques, restaurants and bars as opposed to small market stalls and hustle and bustle.

The bars are pretty much of a muchness. One is much like the other, all feature comedy Happy Hours (12pm to 12am in one place) and the menu's are also similar regardless of where you go. Thrown in the mix is the usual McDonalds and Subway but don't let that stop you, the rest appear to be relatively independent.

You'll get a good mix of Westerners and wealthy Indian middle classes here, very few beggars and it's surprisingly clean(ish). Most western faces think they're some boho chic, wearing the typical dresses and even putting their kids in the novelty cloth (no wonder their children get bullied at school), and I suppose these tourists are looking for some up-market souvenirs (which you will get at Khan Market).

To some up, Khan market is more a trendy circular high street with decent shops and boutiques, with a smattering of watering holes to keep you sane if you're stuck in Delhi.

One of the most convenient places to shop for just about anything you may want , but thats if you are willing to pay a premium . Its one of the only places in Delhi , you'll barely be stared at and will feel comfortable completely alone till late too . You get a fair mix of top Indian and foreign brands and a lot of options to eat out .

One of the oldest up-class markets of Delhi, Khan Market has been quite dynamic in adapting itself to the changing crowd and their needs. The market which was primarily known for the grocery stores and tailors; now consists of some of the best multi-cuisine restaurants, cafes and lounges, fashion designers and a lot more. Each time you visit the market, you will find a couple of new stores; which gives a meaning to each trip of mine to this market.
It also has a quite active Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/KhanMarket) which keeps us updated with the new stores and provides public reviews of the ones existing already.

Nice shopping area with a number of restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy a mid-afternoon coffee with a treat, or have a full dinner in the evening. There were roadworks at the time of our visit but they seemed to be actively working on the site so these will hopefully be completed soon.

Looks can be deceiving at Khan Market. To a Westerner, it may seem average but secret treasures await at Khan Market. You can't beat the gifts available at Anokhi (upper level). Elegant design, flawless execution - this is the store to get your gifts! I only wish I had bought more while I was there. Sigh. Budget a few hours to get the most out of the experience.
