Kylin Premier Tepanyaki Grill in ambience Vasant Kunj. Had lunch from there a few weeks back. Decent food if one is willing to look beyond the price. Costed us close to 4K for two. Sat near the grill which may put off some people. Above average would be my rating but pricey of course.

Another joint if one wants to try South Indian coastal cuisine is the Zambar at Ambience Vasant Kunj. Pricey, decent ambience. Had lunch couple of months back and set us back by around 3.5K for two. Being a South Indian I can easily find fault with items if I want to nit pick, but all in all a decent place with decent food which of course comes at a price.

As for the budget restaurant, the center point in MMX mall, Mohan Nagar is one good eatry, it's not expensive at all. The ambiance is nice and good for family, which is usually the clientele there. The taste of food is also very neutral and to the liking of most.

I will rate it 3 at a scale of 5.

Visited the NFC branch of Dimsum Bros yesterday. Same awesome food and total value for money.

However, this one lacks the 'good' feel of the Ambi Mall outlet. There is also no alcohol license yet which will be sorted in another month.

All in all, close your eyes and relish them dimsums!

Tibet Kitchen, Lajpat Nagar 4, Delhi | Zomato
I was going to add my $.02 in here - and was going to write about the Tibet Kitchen, but I figured I'd do a search first to see if anyone else had mentioned it. You have - and somehow I'm not surprised - the food there is AWESOME! This is a classic case of "appearances can be deceptive" - the joint doesn't look all that fancy from the outside (and their interior can be described as adequate rather than luxurious) - but their food puts MOST, if not all, Chinese (or Tibetan) food from the commerical joints in the city to shame (by commerical joints I mean places like Yo! China, etc). The food is authentic Tibetan - many of the items are similar to what you'd find in Northern China (note: REAL Chinese food is very different from what passes as Chinese food here). My favorite item there is the spicy lamb - this is a MUST-TRY for anyone that goes there!

Highly recommended. . .

Can somebody point the location of Sikkim and Assam houses? Are they near Tamil Nadu house? Are they open for dinner?

Sikkim house, take the next exit after the blocked off rear Lane of the American embassy, next light take a u turn. It'll be on your left.
For Assam house, on the Lane where you take a right from gyarah moorti when coming from presidents estate, its at the first redlight.
Oh. There's also a good non Veg vend right there.


Edit : Sikkim is definitely open for dinner, Assam I've enjoyed on Sunday noons ,so don't know.

Not any more - they stopped admitting walk-in diners for the last one year or more, and the only way you can have a meal there is by booking a room to stay in (at the guest house), and then ordering whatever you like. However, before they stopped letting in the likes of us (we used to be regulars there, visiting about once a week, and knew the waiters by their first names!), they'd actually hiked rates pretty sharply, and the average cost of a meal for two worked out to Rs.500-600 (from the Rs.300-350 earlier).

Oh?
Its been that long?
Sad. Their menu used to be really exotic. I haven't seen most of their stuff on any other menus.
The Yashwant singh palace guys serve very nicely flavored meats too, in the area.
