This was our third trip to India and Delhi was simply the starting point prior to heading off on tour. As such we were only booked to stay at Thikana for one night. Following a long journey and an early morning start scheduled the next day we decided to spend an enjoyable afternoon sitting out on the terrace listening to the sounds of Delhi with a beer. We decided to order in food and as previous reviewers have reported, the food delivered was fabulous and extremely cheap- made all the more special in that it was served up quite beautifully - unlike any other Indian take away I have ever had!
We were given a warm welcome by all the staff and especially enjoyed chatting with Atul and we were only sorry that we didn't get to meet his wife as well.
Atul suggested that we might enjoy a massage to help us sleep well. He then telephoned a local therapist who treated us both to a relaxing massage which seemed to combine shiatsu and reflexology. So with that, the beer and a very comfortable bed, we slept extremely well!
Reading through the previous reviews, I am sorry that we had to get up early in order to catch a train as it meant we were not able to to enjoy a breakfast with the guests. Nevertheless, the staff at had prepared us a packed breakfast to eat which was most greatly appreciated.
I would certainly recommend anyone thinking of going to Delhi to consider this option in preference to a hotel. And, if and when we return to Delhi, I will make sure that we get to enjoy more than one night in this special place!
