RESTAURANTS AND CAFES IN SOUTH DELHI
Asian Games Village, Siri Fort, Khelgoon Road. A clutch of restaurants including Angeethi , with desert decor and live Rajasthani music in the evenings, specializing in delicious tandoori dishes; ACS , a coffee shop with a Mexican theme good for snacky meals and a cold beer; and Chopsticks , a smart Chinese restaurant.
Barista , M Block Market, Greater Kailash II. Trendy young cafe with a snacky menu: good cakes and coffee. Fab Cafe next door is equally good but a little more formal. Basil & Thyme , Santushti Shopping Complex. Popular with Delhi’s “ladies who lunch”, serving Western and Parsi food at reasonable prices, despite the chic location.
