Possibly my favourite spot for a long lunch in the city, 10 to 10 in Delhi is well-known to locals also for its overwhelmingly colourful decoration and cosy venue. Found in the middle of Nicolson Street, close to the university campus, this tiny, authentic restaurant is also a popular favourite with students on their lunch break. With a varied, delicious menu at extremely reasonable prices, you definitely won’t go home on an empty stomach. My favourite dish in the place is the mixed Meat Platter, which includes a range of mouth-watering curries such as a lamb keema sheema, chana, chicken masala, and then tops the whole thing off with some pakoras, basmati rice & half a garlic naan. All for just around £6!
Not hungry? Just order one of their teas and simply sit and enjoy the décor, which transports you straight to a Middle-Eastern market. The walls and ceilings are draped with beautiful, extravagant Arabic-style rugs and shawls, making you feel warm even on the coldest of Scottish winter days.
