Yes, we get it. The battle of ghaas phoos (read veg food) Vs. chicken & mutton can never get over! More so in the capital, where we have die hard fans of Butter Chicken and naan. While we’re not on a mission to promote a vegetarian diet, but time and again we find ourselves in situations where we need to head out to vegetarian restaurants.
It may be because of vegetarian elders, friends (in that case you are a really good friend!), colleagues, or just one of those days when you feel like eating your veggies (or it’s a Tuesday or Navratris). In such a scenario it becomes quite a tough task to find a good all vegetarian restaurant in the capital. Well, don’t fret. We have handpicked the best of the best veg restaurants in Delhi that will make you keep coming back!

Tucked in the comfortable and beautiful seating area of the restaurant, you can treat yourself to various Asian, Chettinad, Continental and North Indian dishes. Although we simply have to recommend their Dahi Kebab with goat cheese and their Mezze platter with Pita bread.
