This restaurant chain, with dozens of franchised locations throughout Delhi and other cities, claims to have invented the world-renowned Indian dish, butter chicken. Starting in 1920, the chain’s founder began cooking Mughlai-style dishes and roasting meats in hot clay tandoori ovens. Butter chicken is available by the full or half bird, and seating options include the simple (but air-conditioned) indoor dining room or patio tables in an open-air courtyard. High-profile visitors like Richard Nixon and former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi have dined at this location, which opened in 1947.
