Hailing from Punjab, Chef Robin Shaotha’s inspired spice combinations deliver tasty, authentic northern Indian cuisine and original creations at Delhi By the way. Here, efficient staff greet you with a friendly welcome, and warm decor bathed in soft lighting adds a touch of elegance. This hidden little gem also boasts a small leafy terrace for al fresco dining.
Chef Shaotha’s dishes are inspired by the ‘spirit of Delhi’, where favourite recipes have been handed down over generations. For a more unusual entree, try the ghilafi kebab – delicately spiced minced chicken rolled and stuffed with masala goat cheese and cooked in the tandoor. Jungli murgh features succulent chicken marinated in ground spices and cooked in a rich spinach sauce. Another outstanding dish is the Peshawari lamb korma, a well-balanced, not too spicy curry that still delivers a mild heat note.
PSST! Get a group together and dine in the private ‘Lodhi Garden’ – a magical setting for up to 12 people.
