The Delhi Brasserie

About The Delhi Brasserie

The traffic thundering by out on the Cromwell Road has no idea that behind the foliage-hidden exterior of the Delhi Brasserie there lurks an elegant, authentic Indian restaurant with a broad, knowledgeable fanbase. The décor is smart traditional, with off-white walls, white table-linens, and fresh flowers, and there is a fleet of keen waitstaff right on their toes. The menu includes favourites like samosas, biryanis, and lamb pakora, as well as slightly more unusual dishes like charcoal-cooked marinated quail and fish terna masala. The chef's special is a classic chicken Tandoori, so you shouldn't miss that.
