Absolutely loved the place and butter chicken. Ankush the manager was very attentive and took care of the smallest details. Definitely recommend it.

It will be difficult to add anything new to the almost 2000 5-star reviews that were already written about Gulati, and I am not a serial producer of restaurant reviews. But I had to leave this place a top review because they took such good...care of me. I am a serious Celiac and traveling (and eating!) in India has been a delight. Generally spoken, if you stay away from their flatbreads, mostly everything else is gluten free. Wherever I go in the world I always carry a printout from Celiac Travel, in this case in Hindi, and present it wherever I eat. The staff at Gulati took it extremely serious. The manager was called and two or three people read the explanation word for word, and then advised me on my food choices. My partner and I were reluctant to order the butter chicken, as it is overly popular outside India. But we are glad we did after all. We also ordered delicious lamb Rohan Josh, and rice. During our month long trip through India we ate some amazing dishes. The food at Gulati certainly made it into our personal top five list. It was just wonderful. The flavours in these two curries were layered. With every spoonful we discovered new spices. We will absolutely go back there before we leave Delhi!More

I used to visit Gulatis when I was growing up in New Delhi over 35 yrs ago. I brought my family over to Delhi on a nostalgia trip from Seattle and we decided to do Gulatis. They did not disappoint. We tried Veg Gulatis with...naan, roomali roti, kofta and paneer tikka. Just awesome.More

I have to say that they serve undoubtedly the best North-Indian cuisine I have ever tried. Their authenticity is what keeps one coming back for more.

Being a Vegetarian, trying their Paneer Hyderabadi felt like a breath of fresh air, since I could finally move on from only ordering Shahi Paneer at every place I went. Another true delight was the Veg Biryani, which left me speechless! The aromas and flavours...were definitely impeccable.More

It was horrible today. We went to Gulati today with family. The electricity went off. There was no back up AC arrangement and fan arrangement. In entire restaurant there was one fan. We were sweating and it was suffocated. Not expected from Gulatis. Poor experience.

This iconic restaurant in Pandara Road Market began life as a dhaba in 1959, and has since become one of Delhi’s most popular North Indian restaurants. If you go by the huge number of certificates and awards that are framed and put up all along...the wall facing the main door, you’d think the entire competition would have been long wiped out. Seven of us, including one child, came here for lunch on a Sunday. We already knew that Gulati tends to have long lines forming up very quickly, so we made sure that we booked a table in advance, for 12.30. Despite that, even before we could order our meal, the restaurant had filled up. The buffet at Gulati seems to be hugely popular, because almost every table around us was opting for that. We ordered à la carte, though: fresh lime soda (mixed, but I couldn’t taste the salt in mine at all), palak patta chaat (very good; several of us at the table felt this was the best dish of all that we had), and paneer tikka. For the main course, we ordered two of Gulati’s signature dishes: dal makhni and butter chicken. With that, we also ordered a masala fish curry, and an array of breads: butter naan, plain naan, lachha paratha, pudina paratha. For dessert, we ordered kulfi. The masala fish curry was too heavily spiced to be enjoyable. The butter chicken and da makhni, while good, were nothing exceptionally. Honestly, if the same dishes from some other popular Delhi restaurants, like (say) Moti Mahal or Kwality were placed alongside this, I doubt I would be able to tell which was Gulati’s. It’s just like any other good butter chicken or dal makhni. Service was so-so; most of our dishes took a very long time to come, and one dish (the paneer tikka), though we’d asked for it to be served with the main course, came well before, along with the palak patta chaat. My advice: it’s really not worth the long wait.More

This is a very famous restaurant for butter chicken in Delhi. Food was just ok. Ambience and food should improve with reference to the money this restaurant charges.

Very tasty food, quick service and ideal location. Most of our family members are vegetarian and this is the perfect place for us to dine. There Dal Makhani is one of the best in Delhi. Staff is courteous and prices are good.
