The finest restaurants which offer luxury of ambience, food, taste and service in the matter of dining experience of Delhi have been chosen c arefully. Here is a glimpse of such Top 10 Expensive Restaurants in Delhi. You can check them comfortably.
1. Indian Accents, Friends Colony
Located in a boutique hotel (The Manor) in Delhi’s leafy Friends Colony, Indian Accent feels miles away from the surrounding city’s bustle. The venue’s Indian-infused zen-like décor with undertone exteriors are well complemented with the understated décor of the restaurant. A passage leads you to the dining room – a no frills room – with limited seating. That is to say, there is an Indianness in the ambiance which is quite inviting nonetheless, tall ‘Samai’ (Oil lamp), a touch of traditional velvet upholstery infused with spic –white table linen, fresh marigold flowers teamed up with modern lighting does create just the right kind of fine dining magic. Overlooking the cool veranda and the lush lawn, the restaurant also has a private dining room and a bar. The menu, designed by Chef Manish Mehrotra, bemuses you with unique names of the dishes. Presenting his take on the world cuisine is the fare at Indian Accent.
Celebrated and critically acclaimed Chef Manish Mehrotra calls his cooking style ‘inventive Indian’ and ‘Indian food with an international accent’ or the other way around.Every dish on the menu; everything from the nomenclature to the style of presentation comes as a surprise, making you eagerly await the next dish. The chef’s use of the most basic and authentic Indian ingredients such as jackfruit, bitter gourd and eggplant, as well as his creative plating make dining here a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The staff dressed in Indian attire are well trained, knowledgeable, friendly and courteous.
2. Dum Pukht– ITC Maurya, Diplomatic Enclave
“Dum-Pukht” – One of the most opulent and celebrated restaurants curates the lost authentic cooking styles for you right from the Awadh region of India. They actually cook the dishes on slow fire and serves you with brilliant aroma and taste. So, you have to be little wise and calculative while deciding the portions since it takes quite some time to get the food on to the table.
Undoubtedly, the ambience is purely lavish and exquisite. A mild instrumental background score and luxurious treatment adds a royal feel to it. The restaurant is not too big but has a warm atmosphere and the seating arrangement has been affected by the lack of enough space as a result tables have been place very close to the entrance of the restaurant and sitting just at the entrance while having the best food is not ideal at all.
3. Masala Library, Janpath
Masala Library has impeccable Chef’s Tasting menu. So if it is your first time here like me, opt for Chef’s special rather than a la carte, to get a taste and feel of what molecular gastronomy is all about.
Masala Library is one such restaurant where food is not just food, it is an art. Here the food is not cooked, it is played with. Masala Library serves cuisines from around the country and every dish served reflects a different culture present in the country.While every dish is served in a fashion divergent from the other, the dishes used to serve the dishes were equally fancy, their name, fancier and the very preparation of the dish was way way different compared to the regular path taken by everyone else.
The decor of the place is very elegant and classy and gives you a very formal feel. The things are kept simple, with a big chandelier in the centre, a nice looking bar section and tables placed at a nice distance ensuring you are not disturbed by your neighbouring tables. The tables are draped in white cloth making things perfect for a great fine dine experience.
4. Pluck– Pullman New Delhi Aerocity
Pluck, an Indian European restaurant, is constructed on the ground floor lobby area and is famous not only for thier dine-in but also for the vegetables they use in the cooking are grown with in the hotel premisses, yes that’s true, they have a small mini farm inside their hotel premises which is taken care by their gardener under the guidance of their chef. That’s why there menu is titled as-“Creative Farm to Table Eatry”
The dine-in area is very beautiful, with the use of glass on one side, so as to use the most of the sunlight, I am sure it would look much pretty in the evening/night(as I visited in lunch, so can’t say). The sitting is colorful with orange and green sitting chairs and couch’s. They have small wooden open shelfs to display different food items.

This place serves the most amazing breads, the most amazing dal Bukhara or even the simple Palak paneer too
If that’s not too much, it’s the biryani that gets you eating more and more and don’t just stop at this as they also argue the old and super Parsi dairy malai kulfi too in this place!! Make sure to indulge here and it’s worth an experience for sure!

They have one special cubical space on the water body which accomodates two tables each for four people and two tables each for two people. To use these tables, minimum billing of Rs 5000 per person is required which will be always a totally worth to your money.
We would definitely recommend this place for the one who wants to spend some special moments with their loved one or to the one who wants to impress their love. A candle light dinner place, that gives you more then your expectations from the location to everything. A must try place.
