“The Perfect Hangout”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Delicious Food - check!
Diverse Menu - check!
Lively atmosphere - check!

BYD has got it all!

The Big Yellow Door is one of my favorite restaurants, as is the case for many other kids of the colleges from the Delhi University North Campus.

The place has it's very own distinct character, which the restaurant owners have worked very hard to maintain. Creatively designed and decorated - the BYD has an ambience that makes you feel alive! The staff is friendly and communicative, and will willingly help you decide your order if you're confused. The menu offers a great selection of snacks and food as well as a variety of non-alcoholic drinks.

Being a frequent visitor, the 'tipsylicious pasta' and 'kadhai chicken pizza' are my personal favorites. But there's a lot of other whacky things to try out! A lot of items on the menu are creative melanges of two different cuisines.

The only con for this place would be the limited space - the restaurant is small and can feel pretty cramped. I've heard a lot about the massive waiting time that people have to face during peak hours - but I usually go around 11 in the morning and have never had to wait!

It's a MUST visit for anyone who's new to the University area.

“Nice Cafe with great food and great service”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

This cafe is located around 200-300 mtrs from GTB metro station, on vijay nagar main road. This place is getting popular day by day as finally North Campus Area got a decent cafe with good food at last.
You can try pasta's with indian/italian flavours, shakes , BYD burgers, and much more....that too not that hefty on pocket like the ones in Khan Market.

Best part is the owner and employees are very courteous and feel happy for what they are doing.
2 Negatives:-
1. There is a long waiting time to get in there , it could be anything between 10 to 30 minutes.
2. Small Space and chairs due to space crunch so dont expect a lounge there you are getting what you are paying for.

“Ah-meh-zing! :)”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Great music,great menu,great decor and grrreat food.After a lot of waiting under the sun,i felt like i was in food heaven.Being new to "campus life",i looked for a place to hangout with friends which was a little off beat but at the same time light on the pocket.You can expect your tummy to be full with just Rs.60 in your pocket.It has a diverse menu ranging from the American Burgers to Italian pizzas and pastas,you name it.The place is full of hustle and bustle and the place is amazing to sit and enjoy your food.So the next time you are in North campus and have a lot of time to while away,Big yellow Door is to place to go.Peace out!

Visited the restaurant with my son & daughter , both DU students. It is small but with a heart. Limited capacity keeps waiting time long. Ambience is just chick. Food served was awesome. Bit expensive side . But taste always come with a price.
