If you are a diehard fan of vegetarian delights and planning to visit Delhi, I am going to share a list of cheap and best vegetarian restaurants in Delhi with you. My personal experience and tips with these hand-picked vegetarian restaurants and food joints will help you learn where to eat best veggie food on your vacation to Delhi. I am also attaching maps with driving directions to visit these places in Delhi. Indian vegetarian dishes are rich in flavor and spices and are ultimately tasty and delightful, so here we go:

Shudh Pure Vegetarian Food Court, Karol Bagh

This is no doubt one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Delhi. It is located in the prime location of Delhi and is packed with local and foreign tourists throughout the season not just because of its ambience but because of its different variety of high quality vegetarian food stuff at a reasonable price. Try anything over here from shahi paneer to masala dosa, from Chinese noodles to delicious vegetarian ice creams, everything is totally fresh and tasty and 100% vegetarian. I know this because I visit this place twice every month mostly on Tuesdays to eat the best vegetarian stuff available in Delhi.

Though there are two more branches of Naivedyam, one in Hauz Khas and one in Rohini, but I love the South Indian vegetarian delicacies of Naivedyam in East Patel Nagar just because this outlet is located right near my office. I have been eating out in Naivedyam since many years now. I visit this place with my office colleagues and also with my family. The first time I visited Naivedyam was in 2006 when they opened this outlet in East Patel Nagar. The most important thing about Naivedyam is that they are cheap and best for vegetarians. They charge just Rs. 100 for 2 plates of vada sambar and believe me they are the best vadas you have ever tasted. Unlike the other roadside places, where they make vadas and keep them in a pile, these guys actually fry them on order only. So it took some pipe; however, what came out was "khasta karara garma garam" vada. They will give you three types of sauces (chutneys) with the sambar and vada and all of them are delicious. The quantity of sauce and sambar they give is quite good too. If you have any plans to visit this outlet, just send me a message at rajsoni4u@gmail.com and I will tell you how to reach this place from anywhere in Delhi.

I have been eating out at Bikanerwala in Naraina since its opening ceremony in 2005. I got married in 2006 but I have been dating at Bikanerwala Naraina since 2005. This outlet is located in Naraina Industrial Area just half a km away from the famous PVR Naraina. Just go ahead and order dal makhani, mix vegetable, shahi paneer (royal cheese gravy) and these will be amazing. Only grudge with them is that they put butter on the plain naan. Meal for 4, damage was less than 600 INR (only 13 dollars for four people). Besides serving North Indian and Mughlai food, Bikanerwala serves South Indian, Chinese, and Continental cuisine. Chole Kulche and Golgappas are also famous delicacies of Bikanerwala.

We visited Khaaja Chowk last Saturday. Took a seat outside in the balcony/deck whatever you want to call it. The weather was pleasant and beer chilled. We only had bharwan aloo and veg gelauti kebabs. Both were for Rs. 100. The quality of aloo was awesome and the quality of filling was great. The ambiance is great.

If you love vegetarian recipes, Colonel's Kababz in Defence Colony indeed has some decent fare. If you are a cabbage fan, try out their gobi kasturi (cabbage curcuma aromatica) and if you like potato, try their achari aloo (spicy potato). They both are quite amazing. Other vegetarian dishes of CK in DefCol include paneer butter masala and paneer korma both made up of fresh cheese. You should definitely give it a shot the next time you are here in Delhi. This restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is visited by a lot of foreign travelers to Delhi.

So above were some best restaurants to eat out in Delhi. The best part of these restaurants is that their food is not really expensive like what is served in Five Star Hotels in Delhi. The rates of their dishes are reasonable. Best of luck for your visit to Delhi. I hope I am able to provide some good vegetarian restaurant tips for you.
