Even I've had decent service in their Sector 63 outlet in the past. Nothing great, but still fairly decent. But this Saturday was a shock for all of us in the group, for the way the entire episode played out.

3. Noida Sector 19 Brahmaputra complex (Great street food, rolls and such)
4. Bercos : Sec 12 Noida. Decent low price chinese food
5. Laxmi's cafe : Authentic Chennai food. Very bad on ambience, but even the famous south indian resturants of NCR do not serve such food. Its the actual south indian food, owned by a Tamil dude, all cooks also from south. Yummy mysore masala dosa and Chow chow bath. But beware there is 30-45 minutes waiting even on weekdays if you go at 9pm.

In the not so cheap our favorite is
1. Pandara road Gulati's
2. Yo china

Good punjabi food is available Karol Bagh side, but we fear to tread there. Dhaba food rocks.

Sometimes we drive to karnal late at night. Just before the toll gates there are Dhabas(including Zilmil) which have great food.
Our favorite one is before Zilmil and has a IOC petrol pump adjoining it. No address, but I do have GPS coordinates.

Must visit Laxmi Coffee House AGAIN, he has renovated the entire place with new decor / tables / chairs and the most unbelievable thing - ITS AIR CONDITIONED NOW

I don't know if it has been mentioned or not in this thread, but a lot of restaurents (high end to medium ones) have come up in meherchand market in the past 4-5 months. Meherchand market is just before lodhi road if you are coming from Aiims/GK side.

Whats the best place to get cakes in Gurgaon? Or even South Delhi if they are so good that driving down is worth it. Any reviews for Sucre Patisserie?

PS: I am looking for red velvet cake mainly. Unless someone can suggest something I cant resist.

Defence bakery comes to mind.
They make absolutely anything on order. Also try the patisserie at claridges, if it has survived still.

Try either Oberoi or Eros in Nehru place. Both make excellent pastries, so you can check their cakes too.

Gobi & Aloo paratha at Parathe Wali Gully got ticked off my bucket list this afternoon.

It was at shop #36 IIRC. Interiors had pics of famous visitors (...Ranbir Kapoor, Imitiaz Ali, Shiela Dixit...).

But to be honest, it felt abit over-rated (taste compared to many normal places at Amritsar). This was apart from the pain to search & reach the place.

Anyway, had a decently fun time in Delhi, off home to Bangalore tomorrow !

This is more of a delivery option, but people are open to visit too.
Sandwich factory.
If you're in any of the mayur vihars, look these guys up in vardhman plaza. Or on any of the apps to order in. Amazing array of bruschettas, sandwiches and their like. You will not believe how cheap it is, and how much you get, at what quality!
10 on 5, it is.

realised its been two years since I last checked out this thread. Lots has changed in the eating out scene in Delhi.

IIFT dhabas now give me a stomach bug. Nahari of any kind is just not on.

Great Parsi food is now available at Rustoms (Adchini). City of Joy (CR Park) remains my favourite Bengali food joint, and also my favourite biryani place in Delhi.

Sangam cinema complex has come up as a new restaurant locale - Fatty Bao, Delhi Clubhouse, Cafe Delhi Heights - all good and pricey.

Japanese and Korean places have taken off - there are some exotic places in Gurgaon which deserve a special post by someone who has sampled them. I am familiar with Fuji in CP, Sakura in Metropolitan hotel, and Tamura in Uphaar cinema complex, and love them.

Lots of spectacular North eastern food places in Delhi - Nagaland Kitchen (NaKi) and Rosang Cafe (both in Uphaar cinema) are favourites, but there are lots of NE delivery places which have come up and are good. Also Dzukou Tribal Kitchen in Hauz Khas - recommend.

people have stopped going to Hauz Khas Village - so dont know what is there anymore - the traffic and the crowd is just not worth it. But my love for Gunpowder (the old restaurant) has been satiated in a way by Mahabelly in the Saket malls - good Mallu food.

Dissapointed that Sahib Sindh Sultan is closed. Thomson's atta chicken was a favorite there.

If you aren't in the mood for the hustle & bustle involved in reaching Karims at Jama, one should visit their branch at the Indian Islamic Centre at Lodhi road.

Well spaced tables, air-conditioning that works and better service. What more could one ask for!

Edit:

Also you don't need to ask for an extra bowl to get rid of the excess oil, it's better controlled.

Do try out the Karim's at sector 18 Noida.
Personally I feel the food is better here than other locations.
Don't miss the mutton seekh kababs and chicken stew......
