Rajouri Garden is definitely one of most prominent West Delhi markets. With Street food, swanky bars, terracotta stores and Sarojini-esque shops for cheap gems, this market’s got it all.
Shaadi Shopping, Street Food & More: Here's Your Guide To Rajouri Garden Market
Whether it’s the Delhi-favourite momo corner or a chaat stall dishing out pav bhaji and golgappas, the variety of food in this market knows no bounds. There’s even a small, Chinjabi food place that has some of the best classic soup options you’ll ever try.
You might not want to give this family spot a miss, which has buffets starting at INR 599 or the biryani place under the metro station that took the West Delhi food scene by storm (and hey, a terrace cafe never sounds bad). And since no meal is complete without dessert, head over to this ice cream parlour where you might just catch some juggling (seriously) or head to this oh-so-famous bakery you’ve never even heard of.
Bars & Nightlife
The Rajouri market has its fair share of watering holes as well. Hell, there’s a bar that has duty free prices on alcohol, a bar that has an INR 99 menu (cheap drinks FTW), a modern dhaba-style place with lethal LIITs, and a whole list of places that are tried and tested go-to hangouts for women (so gather the girl gang!). Not in the mood for booze? Check out this desi version of Starbucks for amazing java instead.
Hey, it doesn’t matter how much you end up eating or drinking – if you didn’t shop, did you really even go to the market at all? The Rajouri Garden market has places that’ll keep you coming back—like this unnamed, Sarojini Nagar-like shop that has everything from kurtis to crop tops starting at INR 250, or this place that sells plus-size clothing for men and women starting at INR 299 (they’ve got sizes from XL to 10XL). And yes, there’s always MINISO for everything else you could possibly need!
We’ve found some real home decor gems throughout the city, and it’s safe to say that this market has its fair share of them. Here’s a round-up of some decor shops that can take care of your whole house—think dainty pots and planters, mini sofas, soft furnishings, Ikat curtains, vintage clocks, and even idols, paintings and rustic vases. Looking for lanterns, stone fountains, or terracotta pieces? Head over here.
Ethnic Wear Stores
Apart from everything else, the one thing you’ll find in abundance in this market are the ethnicwear stores. If you’ve got a wedding to go to, the options here are profuse. Head over to Flyrobe or Stage 3 to rent out complete ethnic outfits, or to Frontier Bazaar for made-to-measure readymade outfits. Ladies, Stores like Shades, Global Desi, Bombay Selections, Novelty, and Kainah will take care of your ethnic needs; and stores like CP Singh, Manyavar, Vastr, His Appeal, Dhawan’s, and Style Fit will arm men with well-fitted suits.
