Delhi, with its history, architecture, culture, art, and talent, also caters some very amazingly delicious eateries. ‘Delhi is all about butter chicken’ is a misconception because the city has so much more to offer. Delhi is proud to have some of the most unique and best restaurants within its lap. With lockdown restrictions lifted in Delhi, restaurants have started operating again. Picking one best restaurant that would satisfy your taste buds is impossible so here’s our list of 8 best restaurants that Delhi has to offer-
1. Fig & Maple
Radhika Khandelwal’s Fig and Maple is a great place for brunch popular among Delhi’s diverse group of twenty to thirty-year-olds as well as ladies in pashminas and men in suits. While the nominal plate of salad, the Fig and Maple is the masterpiece of the menu, it’s the ‘Dolores Park’ French toast that delights us the most.
Besides the unique cuisine and taste it serves, the dine out ambience with some romantic, disco lights is something that will pull you towards it.

This Himalayan Kitchen has introduced Delhites to Tibetan, Nepalese and Himalayan cuisines, and they love it. The newly opened Himalayan kitchen will consistently be known for beginning the total transformation in Hauz Khaz Village in terms of the already available food joints and cuisines. Yeti kitchen made the transformation possible through its meat-filled momos, heart-warming soups and meal-for-one thalis.
Yeti has promised its visitors an undertaking trail with meat, not by vowing but just offering its taste budding Cheley (singed buff offals) and Dopa Khalsa (twice-cooked goat throats). When it comes to Vegetarians, they will always be partial for the steaming hot-thukpa it offers.
