Though on the slightly more expensive side, Big Yellow Door, QD’s and Rico’s most definitely live up to their reputation. Each has its specialty – the BYD Burger, the QD’s Tandoori Momo, and any dessert from Rico’s {but especially, the Banoffee waffle}.

Apart from these, try out QD’s north Indian food, and Rico’s Risotto Balls, Nachos and mocktails.

Mr. Crust Bakers
