Ranked #75 of 13,217 Restaurants in New Delhi
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$3 - US$16
Cuisines: Indian
Description: Rustom’s offers the only true-blue Parsi dining experience in New Delhi. Shifting homes from bustling Adhchini, the restaurant now manages the canteen of the iconic ‘Delhi Parsi Anjuman’ on Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg. Formed in 1925, the DPA today owns and maintains the the only one of its kind Fire Temple in North India. Rustom’s at the DPA is an intimate dining space in the heart of Central Delhi, that promises to give you a glimpse into a traditional Parsi home, complete with authentic home-cooked food and recipes that have been passed on from generation to generation. Rustom’s showcases Parsi delicacies beyond the popular favourites—Dhansak and Salli Boti—focusing instead on the rich culinary diversity of the cuisine. With old favourites and forgotten recipes and introducing diners to some of the lesser-known Parsi delights is what the menu is all about. We have ensured that vegetarians are not alienated with our focused and researched approach to meat-free dishes.

India is a land of varied food cuisines and cultures and Parsi cuisine is one of them.

Parsi cuisine is not just about food but is a reflection of the culture and lifestyle of Parsis, their lover for food in all forms be it mutton, fish, chicken, eggs and veggies

Parsi food draws a strong influence from the regions of Gujarat and hence and thus the sweet and sour element i.e. Vinegar from Goa and Sweetness from Gujarat
Berries.
This is a gem in the form of canteen in the Parsi Anjuman complex.

Chicken Farcha, Patrani Machi, Kharu Ghosth and Kolmi fry were the starters that we ordered and everything was just perfect in taste and quality.

Salli boti was the standout dish on the main course

Once inside your get a feeling that you are sitting in the dining hall of a Parsi household.

All in all a must visit for all food connoisseurs wishing to explore and experience this unique cuisine..

Excellent service, menu well explained for those uninitiated to Parsi cuisine! We had mutton and veg thalis, both were excellent with some nice pickles and chutneys to accompany. We finished with pudding - maska pao pudding and kulfi falooda - followed by hot chai, which tasted heavily of ginger (this is a good thing!). All excellent.

Finally, Rupus the labrador just about made our night.

Deliciously prepared, homestyle meals await you at Rustom's in a very unique setting. My friends from Mumbai tell me the food is truly authentic Parsi. And while the food is very rich, it's not too oily or overly spiced. This is one of my favorite places in Delhi, and I highly recommend. Don't miss the homemade achaar and amazing desserts! One caveat to be aware of: the restaurant doesn't serve alcohol.

Super happy to be visiting here for the fact that I heard lots about DELHI Parsi Anjuman as an authentic Parsi stay place over 3 yrs now. And Rustom is the restaurant inside the property (considered as Canteen)
Staff (Kundan & Islam spl) is friendly and has a happy vibe, makes your experience very light.

Ordered: Raspberry Soda (every table had green or red colour soda), Dhansak (must try), custard Caramel (Very soft and fresh), Paneer Vindaloo, Russian Pattice
