We love Parsi cuisine & Rustom's satisfies our cravings really well. The decor is reminiscent of an Iranian cafe, i.e., a homely feeling. Old Parsi photos add a touch. The service is equally warm. We had Chicken Berry Pulao (absolute fav), Hot Chocolate, Mutton Boti...Akoori, Mutton Thali, Vada Pav & Watermelon Spritzer. Needless to say, we were stuffed with all that dainty food! This is one place we will keep repeating.More

A wonderful feast on nowroz. Extremely authentic Parsi food. The Bhatia nu marghi was the best dish. We skipped breakfast for this which was 110% worth it. The decor was just like a typical old parsi house with murals and age old photographs in black...and white. The staff offers personalized service and are very happy. Thank you Kainaz for such a lovely experience.More

Great food simple decor and value for money. One of the best Parsi joints I have visited for some time. Don’t miss the traditional fish and Dhansak. The restaurant also has Mumbai street food and traditional Parsi masala.

My partner and I were in Delhi for 4 days, and enjoyed the food at Rustom's so much that we went twice. Everything we tried from their sizeable menu was delicious. The restaurant had an attractive and quirky decor, and the staff were extremely friendly....On both occasions our eyes were bigger than our bellies, but the staff packed up our leftovers to take away with us for snacking on later. The food was also fantastically good value - we had enough starters, mains and deserts for probably 3 people on both visits (hence the need to take away leftovers) and didn't spend more than £35 each time. When we're next in Delhi, we'll definitely be making at least one or two more visits!More

Friends took me to Rustoms's at Parsi Anjuman near Delhi Gate. The setup took one back to the sixties - and the food was an absolute delight. Strongly recommend...

The place serves most authentic Parsi food in Delhi. their tarkari nu curry,dhansak, berry pulao are all good but the chocolate pastry is out of the world. And the simple decor with retro English music adds to the experience.

Great food with good service. A little price heavy with each meal being roughly 450 rupees each but it worth it. We just turned up for dinner but the Resturant is located in a interesting building with an interesting g history so worth having a...read about when you are waiting for your food. Also located right next to the cricket ground. MapsMe says it is in the hospital but it isn’t so just follow nav on the on Maps Me and you will get there. It is also just around the corner from the metro station.More

My friend and I ate here for lunch and absolutely loved the food! We ordered thali (veg and chicken) - they were both delicious and a great way to sample Parsi cuisine! We would have loved to try the desserts but unfortunately were short on...time! The setting is also lovely and clean and the service is quick and attentive. This was our favourite meal in Delhi and possibly India so far!More
