Quote: I’ve reviewed dozens of Delhi restaurants over the years—and figured it was time to focus on some places that provide food, but almost no dining facilities. Some reviews of primarily (or sometimes solely) takeaway/home delivery joints.

Sushiya

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Sushi and more"

Sushiya Photo, Delhi, India
Quote:
We’d been seeing the Sushiya counter at Select CityWalk Mall for a couple of years now, but my husband was wary of trying the sushi there. "Who knows how fresh it is?" A valid point, I guess, considering that this isn’t a restaurant, really: it’s a takeaway place, and really small. There is a tiny counter along one side of the square booth, with four bar stools, so you can sit and eat here, but it has no pretensions whatsoever to being anything more than that. The food, too, isn’t made here; it’s simply dispensed.Then, several months back, I discovered that Sushiya receives fresh food from its central kitchen thrice during the course of the day: at 1 PM, 4 PM, and 7 PM. If we picked up sushi...Read More

Kolkata Biryani House

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Good biryani, even if it’s not the best "

Kolkata Biryani House Photo, New Delhi, India
Quote:
My husband and I had read glowing reviews of Kolkata Biryani House, supposedly the ‘only authentic Kolkata type biryani in the capital’ (a claim that’s advertised loud and clear on Kolkata Biryani House’s menu). In case you don’t know what that means, it implies relatively low spice food: Kolkata biryani is traditionally milder and more fragrant than chill-hot, as compared to some other biryanis—most notably, Hyderabadi biryani. In addition, Kolkata-style biryani includes some unusual ingredients you won’t find in other biryanis: whole hard-boiled eggs, for example, and boiled potatoes.The two of us have tasted Kolkata-style biryani before, during the Durga Puja celebrations in Delhi’s main Bengali...Read More

Amici Pronto

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Not as good as the sit-down version"

Amici Pronto Photo, New Delhi, India
Quote:
One of my favourite places to eat in Select CityWalk Mall is Amici: it has never disappointed us. When Amici opened a takeaway counter—aptly named Amici Pronto—we were therefore pretty thrilled. Amici Pronto is on the ground floor, and is very popular; their food seems to literally fly off the display counter almost as soon as it arrives.Very occasionally, if we’re shopping at Select CityWalk in the evening and want to take something home for dinner, we buy something from Amici Pronto. We hadn’t done that for a long time when, in December, we opted for takeaway after watching a long movie at the cinema...Read More

Asian Haus "THAICHI"

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "The best Oriental food delivery in town"

Travel Photo by IgoUgo member
Quote:
There’s no paucity of Oriental restaurants in Delhi, and most of them will home-deliver food or offer takeways. The quality ranges from pretty good (Lotus Pond) to downright scraping-the-barrel (Yo China). Therefore, when I heard people praising the newly-opened Asian Haus, I figured we needed to give this one a try.Come New Year’s Eve (an occasion my husband and I prefer to spend quietly together, rather than at noisy parties), we decided we’d break with our usual tradition of going out for an early dinner—we’d order in, instead. From Asian Haus.Asian Haus are only a food delivery service; they don’t have a restaurant. Their online menu made our mouths water: it’s a selection of Pan-Asian f...Read More

Bake Box

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A new lot of goodies every month"

Bake Box Photo, Delhi, India
Quote:
Bake Box is a venture that was launched last year. It acts as an interface between home bakers and people who like baked goodies—so, every month, they focus on one home baker. The home baker creates a special selection of cakes, pastries, cookies, etc (often themed—for instance, the December bake box was all about plum cakes and mince pies).All customers have to do is go to the Bake Box website and place an order—filling up a form to provide your name and address, phone number, and the preferred date of delivery. Currently, Bake Box delivers only on specified dates of a month, usually on the weekends: along with the contents of the month’s bake box, they also list the dates on which the box can be ...Read More

Ds Biryani Corner

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Passable biryani, but that’s it"

Ds Biryani Corner Photo, New Delhi, India
Quote:
Biryani—cooked rice layered with spiced cooked meat—is one of Delhi’s favourite takeaway foods. More than curries, more than daal and spicy gravies, this is what people seem to opt for when they want to order in something that’s Indian. A major reason is that biryani keeps very well; it doesn’t go limp or soggy, it doesn’t harden and go chewy, and it can be reheated beautifully.In Delhi, one of the most popular biryani joints to order from is D’s Biryani (sometimes also referred to—by the establishment itself—as Deez Biryani). This was set up by someone called Dileep Singh, and has been existence for quite a few years now. The main shop is in Defence Colony (in South Delhi), but they have br...Read More
