We have been regulars at this restaurant almost from the day of its inception. Overall, it is one of the very few very good Indian restaurants in the area. As one of the reviewers noticed, the vast majority of the Indian restaurants in Mercer/Middlesex counties and their vicinity do lack certain ambiance and decor. Bigger restaurants (such as Chutney Mary, Palace of Asia, Crown of India) do offer nicer and more thoughtful approach to the interior design, however it will inevitably reflect on their prices; whereas Delhi 6 is still able to keep their prices very low. Additionally, it is a BYOB, which makes it even more attractive, that is financially.
Recently, Delhi 6 has undergone some changes, all of them positive. The menus are now offered printed on the appealingly-looking Styrofoam-filled tablets, the restaurant has finally launched its own Web site. The china, elaborately embroidered towels, and serving dishes have always been one of the place's strengths, as numerous other small things, where the attention to detail, attention to and respect of their customers reign.
The service is quite professional, efficient and amicable; the proprietor is equally an extremely friendly person who usually greets his customers himself sharing news about the establishment.
The last time we visited Delhi 6, our appetizers were: Chilly Chicken ($8), which was good but full of a sheer resemblance to the Chinese cuisine. Our other appetizer was Mulayam Seekh Kebab/Fresh ground chicken marinated with spices and grilled in tandoor ($9), which arguably was the best Seekh Kebab we ever had: crispy and crunchy from the outside yet pleasantly tender and soft inside, without the overwhelmingly massive amount of heaping onions, as is often the case with this dish. The bread was Tandoori Roti ($2), a delicious yet diet-friendly choice. Our main courses were: Dehli 6 Aloo Korma/Boneless chunks of lamb cooked in the chef's special sauce with apricots and garnished with straw potato ($15), a mouth-watering, very mild and delicate dish; highly recommended. Our other main course was Kadai Goat/Fresh onions and tomatoes blended with spices into sauce cooked with baby goat ($15), which offered a much bigger portion than the same dish in other Indian places. The Kadai Goat was made very spicy ('Indian spicy'), exactly as we asked it our server. Good choice indeed.
Among their appetizers one absolutely must try a Kulfi Falooda, something which is not commonly available in your typical strip-mall Indian restaurant. Great dessert.
Please note that the Web-site prices differ slightly from the actual menu being a bit higher than adevertized. Having said that, our bill that also included two Masala Teas ($2) was $62.90 after taxes. Delhi 6 is doing a great job keeping their prices rather low.
Additionally, Delhi 6 is a proud member of the United (Continental) Dining Plus; thus if you are registered with the above, you get 3 miles per every dollar spent. We will undoubtedly visit again and again.
