    Delhi is both the political and cultural capital of the country. With a rich history of unbroken inhabitation spanning back about two millennia, the city has absorbed the culture of the different rulers who made it their capital and made it the heart of their cultures. From chaats to kababs, from parathas to fine continental cuisine, from regional Indian food to baked foods – this is the city that has it all. Delhi is a melting pot of various culinary cultures, and Dilliwalas have a host of iconic eateries that have survived the ravages of time. Here are 7 of the best places to eat in Delhi that you must try.

    • The Embassy - Connaught Place has and will remain the very heart of Delhi. The iconic Embassy restaurant came up here right after the country gained independence. The menu features the very best of both Tandoori and Continental dishes, and the warm interiors are part of its charm. The best-loved dishes include the Chicken A La Kiev, the Murgh Mussallam, and the famous Embassy pudding.
    • Bukhara - Bukhara at ITC Maurya redefines luxury, sophistication, and fine dining. The Tandoori and Mughlai dishes rustled up in the kitchen here are the closest you will be to culinary heaven in this country. The Chicken Malai Tikka and Dal Bukhara are must-try dishes at this amazing restaurant.
    • United Coffee House – United Coffee House is as much part of Delhi history as it is a legendary food joint. The United Coffee House still features dishes that were favourites when the restaurant opened its doors nearly 80 years ago and others that have been added subsequently. It is indeed a place for conversations and cultural exchanges. The Lamb Kebab Platter, Badshahi Kofta, Lahori Meat, and Cona Coffee are among the signature dishes here.
    • Paranthe Wali Gali – The Paranthe Wali Gali, or the street of paranthas, is not one but three iconic eateries located next to each other in Chandni Chowk. These have been doling out the most unique, scrumptious stuffed paranthas in Delhi if not all of northern India. A hearty brunch here is an experience that you cannot miss.
    • Kwality - The historic Kwality restaurant is located in the Regal Building at Connaught Place. The royal ambience certainly justifies the name. Kwality is known for plating up some of the most delightful tandoori and Mughlai dishes. Do not miss the Biryani, Tikkas, and Chicken Gilaffi here.
    • Andrea's Eatery – Talk of international cuisine, and the one place to head to is Andrea's Eatery in Select CITYWALK. This vibrant, high-street eatery builds on its Italian roots but draws inspiration from across the world. The ambience is chic and welcoming. The Chimichurri Prawns, Mezze Platter, Thai Curry, and Asian Noodle broths are among the menu favourites.

    Karim's – If you are looking for the best kababs in Delhi, Karim's is the place to be. With its popularity skyrocketing, there are several branches of this restaurant all across NCR, but the one at Jama Masjid is still wildly popular and with good reason. Reshmi Seekh Kebab, Mutton Jahangiri, Firdausi Qorma, and Karim Roll are must-try dishes.
