If you can handle the heat; order food from Spice Xpress at Vasant Vihar. Delhites that I know seem to be raving crazy about the food here. Drop in between 12 noon and 11 pm and get biting into their murg lehsooni or achari tikka or try the green like gilafi subz kebab or allo nazakat tandoori. These are just bite-sized appetizers while the main course is a gourmet rendezvous.

In that case, it is imperative to mention that Rs 850/- is sufficient for two people. Cards are not accepted at this restaurant.
