“Hassle Central”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Too many, sleek well-dressed male touts! Hassled at every intersection. Just say you have been to Delhi b4 and know where you are going! No thank-you, I'm OK, goes a long way. Careful even the walls have eyes here ie; they will watch and wait 4 u outside stores, even book a table next to u @ a restaurant! No kidding! You have been warned ;)

“Free Fun.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Great place to be in Delhi when you can't decide where to go. Friends and family whatever. A little crowded but does not matter just in case the weather is great. Shops, bars, fast food. Total Time pass.

“Changing heart of a city”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Connaught Place was the centre of town where, a decade ago, people came to walk, shop, eat and dawdle. Completely changed now. Difficult to walk - fast-moving cars everywhere. More office than shops. And no dawdlers. But still a must-see for a Delhi visitor because of its architectural character.

“Fascinating area with excellent resautrants”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Connaught Place is like some magnet. No one can resist its charms, and the excellent restaurants in the area. Simply watching Delhi passing by on buses, cares, motorbikes, scooters, rickshaws, or simply on foot, is just amazing. I had the opportunity to be there during a monsoonal downpour at 4pm in the afternoon, and see the water getting to half a meter deep all around the Place... Fascinating! Then there's the food. Pick any restaurant, almost. It will be top enjoyment.

“Mostly Overrated”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I think the marble and the shiny windows of shops like Nike and Body shop are enough to dazzle most people, but I am of the opinion that this place is largely overrated. The whole place is under construction of some sort, it is as dirty as any part of Delhi, there are people living in the walkways all around, there are still huge piles of rotting stinking... godknowswhat, stray dogs, touts and various pesterers, human effluence and the traffic around the outer ringroad is extra riotous. Seeing a Levi and Nike store just doesn't float my boat that much.

The inner circle and park are rather nice, and if you can find a rooftop to get away from the madness it is a good view to enjoy. That said, we had cocktails on the rooftop of QBA bar which set us back about £10 a peice!
