A visit to the top rated restaurant in New Delhi on Zomato is nothing short of a pilgrimage. Food in Carnatic Cafe is simply superb and there are clear reasons why it needs to be so.
Location of Carnatic Cafe
Carnatic Cafe is located in India Mall which is inside the premises of community center of New Friends Colony.
About the food at Carnatic Cafe
Simply divine. Now for all those who don’t like the taste or the way it is prepared, remember it is not local food and hence it will not taste and be prepared like one. But having said that, just dig in with faith.
Menu is single page and simple. I would strongly suggest try out the variety of items on the menu other than the regular ones. You wont go wrong with this place. Food is prepared in the small kitchen right within the restaurant seating area.
All the items except for Rassam are easy on the spicy factor. Do try the filter coffee after your meal.
Location and other points
The place is marked well on Google Maps so you wont find a problem there. But it is a very crowded central market. Chaotic at its best. Paid parking is available but it is bursting at the seams. And with every central market in New Delhi there is a Wine and Beer shop here too which becomes active in the evening. Not a happy sight for the family.
Seating is very limited and there is always a waiting and a rush, so come prepared accordingly. Once waiting you can go over the menu to place an order at the correct timings. Service is super fast and preparation takes no time. Ambiance is good and you are guaranteed to have a happy meal.
