On chole Batures, I Don't remember the exact place, but we used to rave about a joint in Patel nagar near Satyam back in the late 90s. The chole bature used to be out of the world!
Are you talking about the corner shop on the main road?

2. Nagpal Chole Bhature (Amar Colony) - some of the best fresh Chole and Bhature in South Delhi.
3. Karim's in Islamic Centre (near IHC) - Much better and more consistent than the Jama Masjit joint. Further you get air conditioned seating at reasonable price.
Would add the following: -
1. Wengers (CP) [Repeat] - Don't miss the Cream Tarts, Chocolate Truffle Cake, Chicken Puffs too.
2. Karim's at Nizamuddin - Excellent food. Drawback being no direct accessibility on a car (just like J Masjid outlet). Better to park out on the main road near the Police stn and walk.

3. Sanjay Chur Chur Nan, Lajpat Nagar - Tasty

Alternates in South Delhi for South Indian Food, are: -
1. Adyar Ananda Bhawan, Green Park - Sat Ambience with sufficient seating space. Good food too! . Not very difficult to find in Google Maps
2. Madras Café (again in Green Park) - A very small outlet. Yet to be up-scaled, but the "dosa podi" a.k.a "gunpowder" there is terrific. Not at all expensive.

3. Karnataka Food Centre, Moti Bagh - For Mysore Rava Masala Dosa & Maharaja Sajjige Dosa.

Came across a very nice Qureshi Kebab Treat Restaurant near Khan Market Metro - Lip smacking Kebabs and yummy green chutney. Not much space to sit inside though.

Not the one I mentioned. There are about 5-6 Qureshi's in that jama masjid area alone. For a first time visitor, one would need very specific pointer to reach the original one. The place has good seating options both for family and friends. Apparently they converted their house to a restaurant and moved elsewhere.

The one I frequent does not have family seating. Opposite the Meena Bazar exit, near Jama Masjid gate 3

That is probably the one. The family section seating would be in a bylane behind the hotel front. About 50 steps.

Sitaram Diwanchand, Paharganj has re-started taking orders for home delivery. I am VERY VERY tempted. Might just order this weekend.

Absolutely. One of the best in town

Of course, home delivery is not as good as fresh, but we enjoyed it today. But because their bhatura style is very different from others (pre-cooked and served after reheating even in dine-in), home delivery is also ok.

For folks in Gurgaon looking for bakery items, try Big Chill Cafe in Ardee mall (sector 52). Recently tried it at one of my friend’s house and was simply blown away. They don’t home deliver through Swiggy or Zomato but have their own mechanism.

Couple of items I tried were top class, but so are their rates. Totally worth indulging once in a while.

I am surprised how no one here has mentioned Chole Bhature from Civil Lines wala in Gurgaon. Guy runs a small outlet and runs out of stock by 3 pm usually. For the people who are not aware - there is no sitting space, you will either need to eat in your car or use couple of small counters available there. His Amritsari naan etc is equally lip smacking. Weekends have crazy crowd/queues, do plan a little early in the day. Definitely recommended.

Damn this thread...
My childhood and school memories came rushing back!!!

Delhi is one of the best melting pots when it comes to food and, dare I say, has the best variety of food and mithai across India!

It may sound an anathema to many, but Delhi's food far far faaaaar exceeds Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore or Chennai...
Oh the chole bhatoore, aloo tikki, gol gappe, pinni k laddoo and doda

All the non vegetarian folks, who do you think serves the best butter chicken in Delhi ? For me its Dhaba in Rajouri Garden at no.1 spot followed closely by Minar in CP. Heard great reviews about Daryaganj Aerocity as well. Yet to try it out
