    My query is very brief and quick, and I thought this is the most easiest and best way to get answers, so here we go.

    I would like to know what the best vegetarian restaurants in Delhi are?

    I have my car, so going to different places in Delhi is no big deal. I will be taking some clients to for dinner in the next coming weeks, so a list of vegetarian restaurants would be very handy.

    Hi there, welcome to the forum!

    For the vegetarians in Delhi, fret not, as you have plenty of dining options around the area. Most vegetarian restaurants in the city offer North Indian cuisine although there are still a few that offers international cuisines to guests. Here are the top ten vegetarian restaurants around Delhi:

    Top Ten Vegetarian Restaurants Around Delhi

    1. Carnatic Cafe - Don't let its simple interiors and cozy vibe fool you, Carnatic Cafe serves the best South Indian cuisine in the city. Their menu isn't exhaustive but it covers the most important dishes in South Indian cuisine like dosas, rotis and rice dishes. But the best seller of the restaurant is their dosas and you can actually choose from a wide variety of options for it. Using pure desi ghee, their dosas are flavourful and cooked just right, crispy on the outside yet fluffy on the inside. Their rice dishes are a meal in themselves with the combination of spices and vegetables used in them. The perfect way to end your meal? No other way than by their Filter Coffee, with its bitterness and sweetness, it can certainly wash your palate clean.

    2. Burma Burma - Featuring eclectic decors, with colourful hanging bells and numerous small statues, Burma Burma takes you to an interesting journey to Myanmar. While the interiors are well-thought of, the menu is also quite expansive and planned. The cuisine offered here is traditional Burmese and as such, you also have a wide variety of choices for delicious tea. In most of the dishes here, two ingredients stand out, which are coconut and black gram flour. One such dish is the Oh No Khow Suey, a noodle meal comprising of coconut soup and some vegetables. The menu also has a number of salads, desserts and appetisers that you can indulge in. Burmese cuisine is hard to come by in many countries, apart from Myanmar, and thus, this vegetarian restaurant is well worth a visit just because of this reason.

    3. Obento - It's rare to find a home delivery or take out restaurant that can provide healthy but delicious meals. But Obento has proved to be the exception to the rule. They are famous for their bento box, known specifically as the Bento Legend, and why not? You can choose your own base, sauce, vegetables and even add-ons. It is so convenient yet packed on taste and nutrients. Though the restaurant doesn't have any dine in options, you can easily order a meal or two from them through their app. Do taste some of their delicious dumplings, incredibly moist and delicious but healthy as they use whole wheat for these. And if ever you cannot make your own bento box, they do have pre-made combinations that you can readily order.

It's an added bonus that it serves pure vegetarian dishes in different cuisines. While some restaurants offer three cuisines at the most, Eleven Course has seven cuisines, namely: North Indian, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, Lebanese and Mexican. Vegetarians would surely rejoice once they find this place as the menu is pretty extensive. Paneer, kebabs, dumplings, curries, noodles, pastas, lasagnas, tacos, burritos... I could go on but yes, they do have it all. They also have a dessert section along with a fully stocked bar.

    5. Kathputli - As soon as you enter this restaurant, its pure white interiors along with unique wall designs would greet you. It takes you to the royal era of the state of Rajasthan and it is such a treat for the eyes. Of course you go to a restaurant for its food mainly and don't you worry, as the meals here are authentically Rajasthani. Their menu is separated into parts, one is for the home delivery, one is for the ala carte meals and the other is for their thalis. While their dishes are exceptionally delicious, their thalis deserve a special mention. There are plenty of options for the thalis and all dishes served are equally lip-smacking.

    • Address - No. 35, Defence Colony Market, Defence Colony, New Delhi.
    • Contact Number - 011 3310 5408.
    6. Shraman - This restaurant is located in The Ashok, a five-star hotel in Delhi. Its ambience is very elegant and at the same time, traditional. The colour motif of the restaurant is turquoise which adds to the calming vibe of the place. The cuisines served here are Gujarati and Rajasthani, along with special Jain dishes. For a higher end restaurant, they're thalis are very affordable and quite filling. Special mention needs to go to their Dal Baati Churma, an explosion of spiciness, sweetness and crunchiness in your mouth. Prices for meals are surprisingly not that high though so even those in a budget can enjoy a meal or two here.
    • Must try dishes - North Indian Thali, Dal Baati Churma and Lachha Parantha.
    • Address - The Ashok, 50-B, Kautilya Marg, Diplomatic Enclave, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi.

    7. Kake Di Hatti - This is one of the oldest dhabas in Delhi and as such, has earned quite a reputation for itself. While there's not much to remark about its ambience or decor, you can find the most authentic-tasting North Indian dishes here. A brief look at their menu would show you common North Indian dishes like paneer, naan, dal and roti. Out of all these dishes, their naan is probably the most popular, not only because of its taste but also because of its huge serving size. In fact, one order can be enough for two persons already. With stuffings like garlic, gobi, aloo, butter and many more to choose from, you are spoiled with choices. Did I mention yet that their meals are very affordable? Yes, this surely is the most legendary dhaba in Delhi.

    8. Suruchi - You won't have to sacrifice ambience nor price to enjoy a meal in Suruchi. With its rustic interiors, complete with soft couches and hanging chandeliers, it delivers to those who consider ambience as part of the complete dining experience. Despite this, meals here are very affordable and you won't need to spend over Rs. 400 for an unlimited thali. You even have options for a Gujarati, Punjabi or Rajasthani for the thali. Downside is that, their menu is not that extensive, unless you opt for their delivery service. The different thalis are mostly the same when it comes to the choices for dal and bread but vary when it comes to the taste and the sauces.

    • Address - No. 15-A/56, Ajmal Khan Road, Opposite Roopak Store, Karol Bagh, New Delhi.
    • Contact Number - 011 4500 0255.
    9. Sattvik - This is yet another North Indian vegetarian restaurant around Saket in Delhi. It is underrated though as compared to the other restaurants in this list. It does not experience as many throngs of customers which can be a good pro of this restaurant. Coming to the ambience, the restaurant has very simple interiors with just wooden chairs and tiled floors. The vibe is very inviting though especially with the warm smiles of the staff. The restaurant is best known for its Navratra Thali, a nine-course meal, with unlimited options and quite affordable at only Rs. 600 per person. But if this meal doesn't entice you, the menu is very extensive and you can opt for their other ala carte meals.
    • Must try dishes - Navratra Thali, Paneer Jaisalmeri and Yukta Aahaar.
    • Address - S-5, 2nd Floor, Select Citywalk Mall, Saket, New Delhi.

    10. Imly - Want to explore the regional cuisines of the country without leaving Delhi? Try out Imly, serving Punjabi, Rajasthani, Madrasi and Videshi cuisines to customers. The restaurant mainly serves snacks, which are very affordable even for students. Taste-wise, meals here are delicious especially considering the price you have to pay for them. The ambience here is very laid-back too, perfect for just hanging out with your friends. Their best sellers are dosa, chaat and their juices.
