Located in the heart of Delhi at Connaught Place, Q’Ba is one of Delhi’s best places to grab a drink or some food after office hours. Built on two floors, it is spacious and exudes a certain laid back charm. With comfy sofas to sink into, a bar with seating around it, and a terrace that overlooks the Inner Circle of Connaught Place, it is not surprising that people flock here every day. Cuisines offered include Asian, Mediterranean, North Indian and Italian. Try the Pot Roast Lamb Shank along with your favorite beer and enjoy the scenic views of charming Delhi.


Parikrama is a legend on the Delhi food scene. Located on the 24th floor, this revolving restaurant offers a bird’s eye view of Delhi. The decor is simple and classy and the restaurant serves North Indian, Chinese and Mughlai cuisine. You can try the Murg tikka Lal Mirch (chicken marinated overnight in chilies and spices) for starters and then move on to the Rogan Josh for mains. It’s a real treat.

Dramz Whiskey Bar & Lounge

Dramz is perhaps the most surprising bar and lounge in Delhi. Its four floors house a wine cellar, private dining rooms, an intimate bar as well as a two-level terrace. The rooftop is a favorite spot and it can be hard to get a seat at as the crowds congregate to admire the unbeatable views of Qutub Minar, one of India’s most famous and historic monuments. Try their Cheese Platter with some excellent chutney or Grilled Sole.

Thai High

Thai High is a beautiful roof-top restaurant serving scrumptious Thai food. The ambiance here is mesmerizing and it overlooks the Qutub Minar, one the most beautiful monuments in India. The food is unpretentious and cooked by expert chefs. Try the crab with black pepper or the Pla Phad Khing, fish stir-fried with ginger and spring onion. It’s a great place offering spectacular views and delicious food at reasonable prices.
