Town Hall Restaurant

Town Hall Restaurant’s reputation is built upon the artistry and unique style of its chef, Augusto Cabrera. Known for his excellent sushi-making skills, Cabrera cooks traditional Japanese food with a modern twist, thus ensuring every Town Hall dish has a clear and distinct flavor. The chef’s signature rolls are, in a word, dreamy, and the seafood dishes are exquisite. The industrial-looking venue of the restaurant is impressive and wonderfully pleasant.

The Big Chill Café

Although it might lack the luxury of Town Hall Restaurant, The Big Chill Café serves food of absolutely fantastic quality. Italian restaurants come and go in Delhi, but this one is here to stay. The chicken pasta with piri piri sauce is delicious, and the veggie Penne Primavera is to be relished as well. The Big Chill has the best milkshakes in town and a stunning array of desserts and pies. Everyone should definitely try the Mississippi Mud Pie, and then come back for more.

Yellow Brick Road Restaurant

Restaurant, Indian, American, French
If after a few weeks in India you crave something other than tandoori chicken or biryani, but don’t want to go for fast food options, then the Yellow Brick Road Restaurant is a great alternative. With tasty Italian pastas and pizza, American burgers and French fries to die for and located in a colorful environment; it might just be the variation you needed.

Wok in the Clouds

With menu items called orange & coriander mojito, cherry chili prawns and rose & coconut kulfi, your experience at Wok in the Clouds can’t go wrong. This trendy bistro-bar is an exotic venue where a team of young and innovative chefs project an original view on oriental-Indian-continental cuisine. The comfortable urban-rustic decor with sofas and an intimate atmosphere fits the food perfectly, and the outdoor sitting area is beautifully serene.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is not so much a restaurant as a coffee bar where you can enjoy some good food as well. This is the right place for a quick bite, an Indian masala wrap or a nicely made pesto pasta, followed by one of their delicious iced coffees with a piece of their mouthwatering chocolate fudge cake. With its beautiful old-fashioned floor tiles, the comfy seats and calm atmosphere, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is perfect to take a break from your Khan Market shopping spree.


Restaurant, Diner, Market, Indian
The restaurant’s unique premise matches its unique name. SodaBottleOpenerWala’s Persian inspired food is delicious, and entering this little place is like entering a story from the One Thousand and One Nights. The rooftop terrace adds to the Arabian atmosphere and is a relaxing hide-out from the city’s continuous hustle and bustle. Right in the middle of Khan Market, this is the perfect place to have a quiet evening overlooking the city lights.

Azam’s Mughlai

Market, Restaurant, Indian, Street Food, $
This very small standing eatery serves the best authentic Indian street food in Khan Market. Famous for its extremely spicy galauti and kakori kebabs, Azam’s Mughlai is a must-try when you’re in the neighborhood. Ask for suggestions; the staff are always happy to help when you’re lost between their chicken tikkas or khati rolls.

Café Turtle

Café Turtle is loved by young professionals and adventurous travelers. Many of them come here to work in the peaceful space, or to read a book from the cafe’s private library. Café Turtle’s menu is entirely vegetarian, with Lebanese, Italian and Greek influences, and its fresh juices are wonderfully refreshing after a long day of Delhi sightseeing. The sandwiches look divine, the quiches are amazing and their bean burger is exquisite.

Market Café

The Market Café has a wide range of international cuisines to experiment with. Their express lunch menu is a great way to mix and match different dishes – try the chicken satay with peanut sauce followed by a rich spaghetti bolognese. The Market Café is more of a diner, on the 2nd floor of a spacious, bright building overlooking the bustling street below, and is a great place to hang out with friends.
