Over the past year a host of new restaurants have opened up in Delhi’s Aerocity – and they are not restricted to the hotels. The Walk at Worldmark is home to so many eateries that you’ll be spoilt for choice. We pick our favourites.
Why Go? It is the most happening place to party!
Do not miss: Carbonara Dimsums and the sushi donut
This buzzing hip bar is one of the best places for cocktails in the city. The jazzy interiors with dragonflies on them add to the drama of this humungous space which is on different levels. The 12 signature cocktails at the three bars take inspiration from Manga comics and each one has a story behind it. The Pan-Asian menu offers interesting dishes and some come with a twist – ever thought of Thai Curry Pizza?

Why Go? For the best ramen in town
Do not miss: MKM Sushi and Miso Ramen
If you are a fan of ramen, your search stops here – it is the best in the city. This Japanese restaurant has a huge menu and offers everything authentic from sushi rolls, Teppanyaki, donburi to Bento boxes and desserts like Matcha tiramisu. For appetisers, braised Belgian pork belly that comes with delectable honey and soy jam can be tried. In sushi, the highlights are Philadelphia roll (with chopped apple, ginger and cream cheese), the vegetarian caterpillar roll, the rainbow roll (with crabstick and avocado), salmon katsu roll and MKM sushi (with tuna and cheddar cheese). The interiors are swanky and there is a private dining room as well.
Why Go? It’s Delhi’s first 24-hour café
Do Not Miss: Lamb stew and the cocktail Darly’s Mansion (masala tea infused gin)
Now you do not need to think twice about where to go for an after-party bite. This whacky place with a Gothic theme (ornate chandeliers, period furniture and vintage paintings) is open 24×7 and has good old comfort food. The lamb stew comes stuffed inside bread and the butter chicken is just the way it should be. A nightclub attached to the cafe comes alive on weekends and the interiors are inspired from a Gothic church.
Why go? Because who doesn’t want to eat healthy
Do Not Miss: Keto Chicken Biryani, Mutton Galouti on a mini kuttu bread
From breakfast bowls, kathal quinoa biryani, six grain parathas, grain free chocolate cake to vegan cheesecake – whatever you choose here is going to be healthy. They avoid using wheat, refined sugar and oil so that you can indulge without feeling guilty.
Why go? It is Delhi’s only French bistro
Do Not Miss: Canape platter and profiteroles
If you are craving for authentic French food, head straight to this cheerful bistro for a choice of classics. When the menu is designed and created by chefs from Le Cordon Bleu, you are assured of culinary excellence. The canapé platter has three types -the smoked salmon with Boursin cheese is the best. The chicken Cordon bleu bites is not your typical dish – it is actually smoked ham with gruyere cheese. Do not skip profiteroles when it is time to round off your meal with a dessert.
Why Go? To eat local and healthy flatbreads
Do Not Miss: Levantine, Spiced Lamb and Banana Chocolate flatbreads
In a quinoa chasing era, it is so comforting to eat flatbreads made with native grains such as ragi, amaranth, barley, buckwheat and whole wheat, to have drinks where honey and jaggery replace sugar and where a wellness bowl is tossed together with local greens and grains. In the drinks there is a choice of fruit based ones and smoothies made from hung curd. Go for the Artisan rice bowl tossed like jhal muri with white, black and brown puffed rice, tomatoes, onion, lime and peanuts – it is delicious.
La Roca Indulge
Why go? To indulge in global comfort food with a twist
Do Not Miss: Salmon Carpaccio with Chilli Jam and Seafood Paella
The global cuisine at this restaurant that spans American, Asian and European options includes some really interesting dishes such as Paneer and Papad sandwich, lamb khurchan tacos, calamari bhel, so if you are in an experimental mood, go with these. The swanky space which looks like a cave is massive and can seat more than 100 people.
Why Go? For the best butter chicken in this part of town
Do not miss: Butter chicken (of course) and mutton burrah kebab.
The butter chicken here cannot get better – after all, this restaurant pays tribute to the founder of butter chicken – Kundan Lal Jaggi – who started Moti Mahal. This one is by his grandson Raghav Jaggi. Not only will you be digging into finger-licking staples from Old Delhi but also reading about how it all originated – the menu is full of stories and trivia.
Why Go? Because who doesn’t like desi food with a twist
Do Not Miss: Old Monk soaked lamb boti, Jim Beam Pork ribs and Filter coffee and Dates Sticky Pudding
A happy bistro in the day and a vibrant music scene at night – this is Tappa for you. A menu with more than 100 dishes can leave you confused – but then what are we here for? If you want to be bold and experimental try the haleem khow suey, kulcha stuffed with duck gassi and red wine prunes, multigrain sev puri with guacamole. Else we have already mentioned above the safe dishes to try.
