Insider Tips

  • None of the food is light and animal fat is used liberally. Do not go if you are on a diet
  • A recent refit by a Bangkok-based design firm has given the restaurant a sharper look but it still has the air of a formal hotel dining room
  • The best tables are those far away from the loud tinkling of the piano player who plays Hindi film songs

Critic Rating

Vir's Verdict Chief Editor & Lead Critic


This is the restaurant that popularised the elaborate court cooking of the Avadh court in Delhi. Dum Pukht is a style of slow cooking in which the dishes cook gently in steam (the Dum) but the menu goes beyond steam cooking. The restaurant has three classics: the minced meat kakori kabab that melts in your mouth, the famous biryani in a sealed pot that has been widely copied, and the delicate yellow Dal Qureshi with its garlic tang. This is the place to go for North Indian haute cuisine.

Very good food

The food here is delicious and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is also beautiful. Would definitely return here if we were to visit India again.

Royal fine dining

Dum Pukht is a wonderful place to visit to live( albeit short) the royal life. The ambience is luxurious without making you feel out of place. The food is delectable and you must try the Dum Pukht Biryani to know what I'm talking about. The Rose petals Kheer/porridge is a must try as you wouldn't get it anywhere else on a restuarant menu or so Dum Pukht claims! The service is an absolute delight...right from the time of booking the table to the service during our time there, we were taken care of like royalty. A special mention for Mr. Kochhar for being so nice and friendly.

Extraterrestrially good

As the title suggests, this place is out of this world. From the food served to the decor and the services offered by the staff, i would rate it 10/10. I am surprised that everyone visits bukhara instead of dum pukht(both of them being in the same hotel) I have been visiting dum pukht since almost a decade now and each visit is unique on its own. The food that i love the most is kakori kebabs, their JUMBO prawns and the mutton biryani which i have no words for. I can tell that the chef really enjoy making the food because its so good. If you come here, you must savour the food. I feel like i have transformed into a new world whenever i eat here. And ofcourse the food is not the only exceptional thing here. The staff is as benevolent as the food. My special regards to Mr.Kanwar who has been personally attending and serving to me and my family on each one of our visits. He has been so kind and attending that it almost feels like he is a part of our family and not someone working there. Its truly an exquisite vibe all around. Some say that its too expensive but i say its worth it. Food= 5/5 Service= 5/5 Atmosphere= 5/5 Staff=5/5 Overall rating= 26/25 My special regards for making so many memories here:)
