We dined early evening and chose authentic mutton and chicken curries. They were both delicious and so was the garlic naan bread, the best I had ever tasted. Service was excellent and the restaurant was spotless!!

I recently got a chance to revisit an old favorite after about 30 years! Tucked away in small Pandara Road Market, close to India Gate, it is amazingly still under same management. Though it no longer has outdoor cooking and service from its delectable tandoor, as in the old times -- the food was just as satisfying, freshly prepared and... More

Had a nice satisfying lunch at the Pindi in between meetings and the restaurant was full of tourists ( seemed to be popular with the foreign tour planners & rightly so ). Meal was served in quick time and all of us enjoyed it as well.

Located right in the heart of Delhi and within a small bazaar area, Pindi offers excellent local fare. We order d a variety of dishes and shared. All were outstanding. Alcohol is not served. Would suggest if you are out and about to drop in and experience outstanding Indian cuisine. Both veg and non veg are served.

After a short wait for a table (v.popular and not just tourists) menu quickly presented. Service quick and efficient and food - we had a roti and Peshawari daal - first class. Bit expensive for India BUT air conditioning; clean loos; English speaking worth the money.

The ambience was great, service was efficient and the food was good, though the price is a bit on the higher side. The place had more of foreign nationals than Indians when we visited.

We ordered the standard fare of dal, butter chicken and tandoori roti along with pineapple raita. The food was great! I normally don't eat pineapple raita but the one served here was so tasty that I had a second helping. Overall the restaurant is a gastronomic delight. Must visit for those who love Indian food - specially non vegetarians. The... More

Our chauffeur and local guide were both equally insistent that we should try this restaurant, so we agreed to have lunch there. We were not disappointed. The food was very good, although we were persuaded to order the "tasting menu" of many and various smaller dishes - mostly vegetarian dishes, with just one chicken dish included in the selection. They... More

In a small crescent of New Delhi, packed between houses of under secy's lies a stretch of land famous for its Butter Chicken and Brain Curry - for people acquainted with New Delhi, this is almost synonymous to The Pindi Restaurant.The Pindi charm has not diminished over the years. Defying traditional business calculations, which put the lifespan of a restaurant at 5 to 10 years, Pindi, which serves hearty Punjabi cuisine, has been around since 1952. Shri K L Wadhwa, its founder had a vision for Pindi which has been carried out successfully through generations.With delicacies like Butter Chicken, Dal Peshawari & Kashmiri Kebabs and specialty dishes like Brain Curry, Keema Kaleji and Mutton Burra Kebab, Pindi is really about GOOD, FINGER LICKING FOOD!
