Specializing in tandoori cooking, this restaurant, which is located in the hotel where all dignitaries visiting India stay (was a Sheraton and feels very ’70s), has been a must stop on itineraries for Delhi travelers since the 1970s. Guests are given checkered aprons to wear and suggested to eat the traditional cuisine with their hands (but they will give you utensils if asked). The dal is considered the best in the country, and the fare famously led Bill Clinton to quip that he wished he had two stomachs. It’s touristy, but the food is excellent and there’s something deliciously satisfying about digging into a lamb kebab with your bare hands.
