“Unpretentious and good quality”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We had heard good things about this Indian restaurant and, although we've owned an apartment in Nice for over 7 years, had never tried it. We chose to visit Delhi Belhi for my wife's birthday in November and were not disappointed. The restaurant is relatively small inside but the service is courteous and efficient and the food is very good. We opted for a fairly traditional meal - mixed starter to share followed by Chicken Korma and Chicken Tikka Masala with rice and garlic nan - but the food was delicious. We were pretty full after the main course, especially since we'd opted for a side of aloo gobi, but decided to go for dessert and coffee too (kulfi for me and chocolate ice cream for her). Although fit to burst, we felt it would be rude not to eat the birthday cake they brought for the special occasion. The Provence wine was excellent and pretty good value for money, which rather summed up the entire experience. We will certainly be going back.

“disappointed”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Our favorites are indian and thai restaurants. we normally see the reviews of the restaurants before we visit places, since these are difficult to find. We had this restaurant on top of out list when we visited Nice in November. However, we were disappointed with the general appearance. It did not look like a family restaurant. More like a pub, dim lights, curtains hiding the open cupboards. inside looked crowded, we waited for a while deciding to enter or not, but were put off by the general appearance. i wouldnot rate this restaurant high at all.

“Delicious Break From Typical French Cuisine”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We had been searching for something other than Italian or French cuisine because we were nearing the end of our trip and had our fill and this was a nice treat for the palate. We sat outside so I do not have a review of the inside of the restaurant however the outside was dimly lit which was very romantic. The service was excellent and they even helped to satisfy a special request of mano lassi spiked with vodka even though they had a wonderful selection of wine. The food was amazing and true to indian cuisine and there was plenty of it. We thoroughly enjoyed our chicken tikka masala and if we had found this place earlier in our trip we would have return for more!

“Nice food”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Went for dinner here and enjoyed the food. We ordered Lassi but it was more like milkshakes but the mains were all tasty and authentic. We had to sit at the tables outside as there was no room inside. The service could be better as those sitting outside weren't attended to much, but this was due to them being understaffed (apparently only 2 of 5 staff were present). However, food arrived really quickly which was good. Will recommend if you fancy some Indian cuisine.

“Excellent food, fantastic atmosphere”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

If you like Indian then you will like this place.

I ate here with my wife recently and it was amazing.
We had no reservation but were given a great seat, and the manager was very polite and friendly.

We had 2 starters and 2 mains and they were all excellent.
We just had a bottle of the house red wine which the server simply lifted off the shelf behind us and it was very good for the price.

Prices would be mid-range but you will not be dissapointed.

If your staying in Nice for a few days then you won't regret eating at Delhi Belhi.
