82044 Interested |

If you’re a parent, you know how much your choice of restaurant is motivated by your offspring. Unless it’s dinner, because then you know they’ll fall asleep at some point (evoked memories of many a nap at Chopsticks, Sirifort, when we were younger). So, it’s always super if the restaurant is helpful, supportive of your litter, and thus, conducive to a peaceful family meal. Here are some restaurants in Delhi NCR that should be on your list when it comes to family dinners.

Pitstop By Smaaash

A virtual paradise for gamers and sports fanatics; we’re talking bowling, go-karting and more. They also feature virtual reality experiences, essentially, a mix of motion and positional tracking, in addition to head-mounted displays and superior quality graphics. Take your inner child (and your actual child) and ball out. All we’re saying.

Price: INR 1,800 for two 

Dhaba By Claridges (aka Dhaba Estd 1986)

This on-point Indian restaurant also does another great service – their kitsch interiors. In terms of space, it isn’t very open, so children cannot run around, but they can entertain themselves with the truck facade and knock back their range of colourful mocktails. And parents, cocktails for you! Staying true to that Indian hospitality, the staff and management welcome children, are super-friendly, and will go out of their way to accommodate food allergies and preferences.

Price: INR 1,000 for two 


American diner-esque, with an incredibly child-friendly menu, including shakes, fries, burgers, hot dogs and ice cream sundaes; blame it on pop culture, but there’s something about all-American joints that give them everlasting appeal.

Roots – Cafe in the Park

A solar-operated little toy car greets you at the entrance, and we can guarantee your kids will greet it with much fervour. Since much of it is outdoors, junior will love the open space and the chance to run around in between bites of the beautiful food. The ground is pebbled, so we’d recommend asking the little one to be careful. Not that you don’t constantly already.

Price: INR 750 for two

The Great Kebab Factory

Sigh, we love this restaurant. They never disappoint. Blame it on that age old ‘Family’ restaurant concept, or just good ol’ Indian hospitality, but the staff is very amiable, and patient with children. The only drawback – it is most definitely a sit down spot, so areas to run around are few and far between.

Price: INR 1,800 for two 

Barbeque Nation

Hey, who doesn’t like an unlimited and expansive buffet? With live grilled meats and veggies, main course options in both veg and non-veg, dessert and more, Barbeque Nation makes for the perfect restaurant for fam dinner plans. They’ve even got a special buffet option for kids!

Price: INR 1,800 for two 


Pandara legend, Gulati’s, should definitely be on your list (as it is on ours) if a family dinner is on the cards. Famous for their delicious Mughlai cuisine, Gulati’s knows how to deliver an all-round experience when comes to the food. We find ourselves enjoying the kebabs and the kadhai chicken the most. If ever there was a place to treat the kids to North Indian cuisine that’s true to the heart, this is it.

Price: INR 1,200 for two 


Imly's menu is a mix of vegetarian street food from various places across the country. You’ll find everything from bhelpuri, pav bhaji, and samosa to pizza dosa, momo, and nacho corn chaat.

Price: INR 1,000 for two 


Shibuya’s oriental cuisine has been on our list for quite a while. The cherry blossoms on the wall, the delicious cocktails, and the mushroom and bacon fried rice are what dreamy dinner plans are made of. Why should the adults do all the feasting here, though? They’ve got a special kids menu that has soup, skewers, butter jasmine rice, hakka noodles and drinks like Oreo, Nutella, strawberry and cream shakes and more that the little ones can enjoy.

Price: INR 1,800

Copper Chimney

Copper Chimney is perfect for family outings. Originally from Mumbai, they've recently opened an outlet in Cyberhub Gurgaon. They mainly serve north Indian cuisine. The Dahi Kebab come super crisp on the outside and melt in your mouth as soon as you take a bite. Also, the breads come perfectly crispy the first time around and the flavours are the spiciness of the food is well-balanced. However, if you like your mocktails chilled, make sure you let the server know, else you'll be met with a little disappointment. 

Price: INR 1,600 for two

Pizza Express

We don't know one child who doesn't enjoy pizza! And Pizza Express is one of the best places for that. They've got a ton of variety and bases. Apart from the regular oregano and chilli flakes, you've chilli and garlic oil, which, trust us, pairs beautifully. If you're a vegetarian, you must try their pesto pomodoro

We believe every child is obsessed with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and it becomes a dream to go there; well, you can fulfil that dream at Colocal, a chocolate factory and cafe. We've heard their hot chocolate is delicious, but their chocolate cake has our heart!
