At first look, the Rajendra Place Complex just seems to be a massive clump of red-bricked housing offices. Look closer, and you’ll find a host of good eating joints waiting to serve you for every occasion and budget.

For those coming from another part of the city, the nearest metro station, to state the obvious, is Rajendra Place.
