Top choice Indian

in Old Delhi (Shahjahanabad)

Considering its gritty Paharganj location and its street-food roots, the interior of this locals' favourite is surprisingly elegant (there's even a chandelier!). Street-food chaat (savoury snacks) are served by the entrance, while the main menu focuses on rich Mughlai curries, delicate South Indian delights such as dosa and uttapam (savoury rice pancake), and some outstanding thalis; the 10-piece Shahi thali (₹240) is a feast.
