When it comes to Punjabi restaurants in Delhi, this one has got to be on the top of the list. And why not? It’s a legacy on its own. The restaurant started as a simple dhaba, way back in 1959, and now it’s one of the best Punju cuisine restaurants in town. It’s really tough for us to put our fingers on one particular dish to try out here. But yet, you absolutely got to have their lip-smacking kebabs and tikkas.

This place needs no introduction. And the first thing which comes to our minds when we think of it, are those gigantic Chhola-Bhaturas! Right? You definitely need a person to share it with! But apart from that, you simply have to have their Dahi Ke Kebab and the good, old Butter chicken.
