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.

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.

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.

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!
