Riyasat-E-Hind

Located near Quest Mall, Riyasat-E-Hind is like a dhaba but with a modern, or shall we say, a royal twist. They have a delightful spread of heavenly dishes from up north sure to leave you with a happy stomach and soul. Opt for their Mutton Biryani that's a riot of flavours as soon as you take the first bite. Vegetarians must try the Sabzi Gulistan that's made with a lot of veggies and paneer in a thick gravy. Pair it up with a Butter Naan or a Lachcha Paratha and you're all set for a heavenly gastronomical journey.

Azad Hind Dhaba

The Special Butter Chicken, Dal Tadka and Butter Naan are hot favourites here. Go for the Reshmi Kebabs if you're looking for a lighter option. The kebabs are tender and juicy just the way we like it. Paneer lovers must try the melt-in-your-mouth Paneer Butter Masala. Don't leave without washing down a glass of thick lassi. Ah! We're craving for it already.

Amritsari Haveli

This small, cosy restaurant in Bhawanipur boasts of a wide selection of palatable quick bites, starters and mains straight from the gullies of Amritsar. Enjoy the best of Punjabi cuisine right here with a scrumptious spread of soft and tender kebabs, chole bhature, Indian breads, dal and gravies. The Dahi Bhalla is a must try. It's a crime if you visit and don't order the Amritsari Chole Bhature or Aloo Parantha along with tempting, hot Gulab Jamuns.

Moti Mahal Delux

Delhi-based Moti Mahal Delux is the place to go to for a lavish and scrumptious North Indian spread. The owner is credited with inventing Tandoori Chicken and Butter Chicken, we are told! So, obviously, you have to try these while you're here. Definitely try their special Tandoori Soya Chaap or Mutton Galouti Kebab. For mains, take a bite of their Veg Nargis Kofta and Dum Ki Kali Dal.

Zaranj

Located beside the Indian Museum, Zaranj is an iconic restaurant that serves up quite a storm with their authentic North Indian and Mughlai food from the Northwest Frontier Province area. Their legendary Zaranji Raan is a must-try – whole tandoori leg of lamb, marinated with rum and in the chef’s own recipe. It takes over half an hour to prepare so it’s best if you call in advance and place an order. We loved the Dahi Ke Kebab, Nawabi Gosht Tilla  (roasted chunks of lamb cooked in tandoor) and Murgh Nawabi too.
