Arriving at Tree Tops was a "Breath of fresh air". After a month traveling around Rajasthan, tired and in poor health, I was nursed back to full fitness by my New Indian Mother. Tannie was the best cook with the kindest soul we met in a country filled with great food and friendly faces. A spotless, inviting home greets any weary traveller. The upper level of the homestay is like staying in your own apartment. With a private rooftop garden that has views of parks and treelined avenues, you feel miles away from the hectic nature of Delhi. Located within easy reach of train stations and the airport, its suits any traveller arriving or departing India. I look forward to my next visit and would highly recommend eating all your meals with this wonderful couple. Dinner conversation was fascinating and I feel very fortunate to have met such an interesting and friendly couple that open their hearts and home to the world traveller. Thankyou for wonderful stay.

We got to know Tannie by calling her about her cooking course, and she was nice enough to offer us a room at her place. If you are looking to experience living with a great delhi family we would heartily recommend staying with Tannie and Murad. Additionally, if you are after simple but beautifully cooked food try a few of Tannie's meals, or better yet try one of her cooking courses!

Finding tree tops and meeting Tannie was one of the highlights of my trip to India. It was so relaxing to stay in a well appointed, clean, and charming home midway through a month jaunt through India. Tannie's food was delicious, and she was incredibly helpful in our time in Delhi and beyond. Neighborhood is low key and nice. Overall, highly recommended!

Tree tops is the BEST place to stay in New Delhi.
A frequent traveller to India, I have stayed at the Oberoi, the Imperial and other hotels, but none come even close to Tannie and Murad's paradise in Hauz Khas.
Simple but clean rooms (go for the top one with its private terrace), cordial hospitality and the invaluable benefit of expert advice on what to do and where to go in Delhi.
Tannie's food is excellent. The parrots and monkeys keep quiet after 8:30 pm. The Internet works relentlessly. Murad's jokes are bound to make even the most hardened road warrior crack a smile.
The decor? You will feel at home. No fancy Italian or colonial designer has corrupted Tannie's personal touch.

Stumbling across Tree Tops was one of the best things that happened to me on my trip to India. Murad and Tannie, the owners, didn't just put a roof over my head--they helped me with everything from planning an itinerary through India, booking tickets, buying fabric, sightseeing in Delhi, etc. Tannie's delicious Indian and Thai cooking satisfied my appetite on more than one occasion. I cannot recommend this highly enough for anyone looking for the unique experience of living in an Indian home and getting to know truly wonderful people.

Baig10, Owner at Tree Tops, responded to this review, 27 February 2013
Personal reactions are noted but the facts are:
1. We have our own Reverse Osmosis water purification machine to ensure perfect water.
2. We do not run a cooking school and classes are almost always arranged on request but are sometimes not possible at short notice.
3. This is a home stay and we cant control the neighbourhood and most people like it. Actually it is one of the quietest colonies in Delhi surrounded by parks.
