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

Vir's Verdict

4.5 /5

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.
