Each time I go to Delhi, I end up at Bukhara, the world famous restaurant. Don't be fooled by restaurant using that name: they are not part of the brand created by ITC and they try to use the notoriety of this fantastic establishment. I love this place that is a bit touristy but still serves some amazing food prepared in the kitchen that you can observe from the dining room (the first time I went there, I even got a tour of the kitchen).

Food wise, there are few dishes that I recommend: first is the paneer tikka that is cottage cheese that is the best I ever tried and far better than the paneer you can find in restaurants in New York City. The meat cooked in the tandoor is also spectacular, well cooked, not dry, with a nice char. Then, the dal makhni aka dal Bukhara that is very creamy, with some added butter. Last is the naan bread. They serve it family style that is good for the show, but I prefer the regular version of it. They have other succulent dishes that fouls satisfy both vegetarians and non-vegetarians who would like to have a memorable evening. 

Here is what I had:
