Address: G-46 Aggarwal Millenium Tower, Netaji Subhash Place, New Delhi, Delhi 110034. They also have several other outlets across Delhi NCR.
If you ever decide to head to Chandni Chowk for some shopping and come back without eating this store's famous dahi bhalle, you've really missed out on something in life! The no-frills outlet only serves dahi bhalla and aloo tikka and have won several awards for the same.

If you're a fan of chole bhathure, which honestly every true blue Delhite is, you totally have to try out the chole bhathure at Sita Ram Diwan Chand.
