Vegetarian Restaurants in New Delhi, India

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

New Delhi, India is usually thought of as a place of Hindus and vegetarian people but it is true to some extent only. There are a lot of places which serve exceptional curries and mouth watering mutton, chicken and innumerable varieties of sea food.

Good Budget vegetarian food

However, in case, you are looking for a good budget vegetarian food, try out Moti Mahal at South extension and Evergreen at Green Park. Moti Mahal has a live singer belting out semi classical songs while you savor the delicacies like mildly spiced mushroom gravies, Palak Paneer (spinach with cottage cheese), Dal makhni and chapatti (bread), biryanis and pulavs, makes one want to come back again and again.

For a real Indian experience

Another don’t miss place is Haldiram, the top name which comes to my mind for vegan and vegetarian food in the capital. It has three branches in Chandani Chowk (old city close to Paharganj), Mathura Road and Lajpat Nagar, while they have a huge outlet on the Delhi – Jaipur Highway. From authentic snacks and savories to hot meals, I would suggest you definitely try it out for a very Indian experience.

Popular fast food on Connaught Place

While traveling in Delhi, Connaught Place is never missed and has a variety of places you could eat vegetarian food for less that $10, especially Nirula’s. This chain has been in existence for the past 25 years with a good ambience, fast service and excellent vegetarian / non vegetarian food. It is basically a popular fast food joint which has pizzas, burgers to Indian meals. So choose what you like from a variety of ice creams and cakes also as few Nirulas outlets have an outstanding bakery too!

Chinese cuisine on Pandara Road

Meandering through Delhi roads will bring you to Pandara Road. Usually all tourist buses bring you here for lunch as has a host of restaurants serving lip smacking Indian dishes. Try out the crisp breads (naan) with tangy onions at Gulati Restaurant or Ichibana for authentic Chinese cuisine. Although all of them are very good and serve an assortment of Continental, Chinese to Indian dishes.

Traditional dishes from South India

Sarvana Bhawan is a South Indian restaurant in Connaught place opposite Janpath market, which serves Idli (rice cake) with Sambhar (mildly spicy lentil curry) Dosa and other mouth watering traditional dishes or food popular down South India i.e. Chennai, Kerala and Karnataka.

Most of the above mentioned restaurants will give you a sumptuous meal within $10 so gorge and be happy!
