New Delhi Restaurant was featured in Where Magazine’s 2012 launch representing the best Indian Restaurant Category. Look for it around town and Yay us!
New Delhi Restaurant was proud to be featured in San Francisco Magazine”s Best Of Bay Area Event representing the Best Indian Restaurant Category. June 28th, 2012 at Cityview Metreon, San Francisco. And they know their Indian food.
Thrillist came to visit, and here’s what they said:
If you thought Chili Davis was as hot as it gets, prepare to have your mind melted by heading to this Maharajah-decor’d Indian joint on any Wednesday night, mentioning Thrillist, and then instantly regretting it when they hook you up with a taste of their just-procured hottest chili pepper in the world — the Ghost — which is four times spicier than the hottest habanero, and has to be pulled from a locked back vault, handled with gloves, and blended into a mouth-assaulting paste served with naan. And now you’ve got a great first date idea!
Go here to see the video!
First bite. So far, so good.
Second bite. The heat is kicking in.
Third bite of the ghost chili.
The Ektava kids are on the way!
And we need your help
A long-time dream of Compassionate Chefs Cafe is well on its way to being realized and we need your help to make the final stage as amazing as it can be.

“Ekatva” is a Sanskrit word for “oneness” or “unity.” In partnership with leading Indian performing arts school Darpana Dance Academy, EKATVA has been an inspiring journey of 16 children from the slums who present a 90-minute dance drama about Mahatma Gandhi’s ideals of strength, peace and of course, oneness.
“The concept of the EKATVA tour is to share with the world the power and potential that exists in our underprivileged communities. The EKATVA children and show are examples of what happens when we provide love and opportunity to the children of our world,” says Nimesh Patel, EKATVA Director and Manav Sadhna volunteer.
