With the temperature dropping, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors in Delhi. Nippy mornings and evenings are proof that barbeque season is finally here. A barbeque is used to describe a style of cooking that uses live fire, smoke and heat over a grill to captures the tastiest notes of the marinades and sauces used in it. Whether you like to savour delicious meats cooked over a BBQ or simply enjoy North Indian straight from the tandoor, who doesn’t enjoy a juicy, smokey, charred and flavourful barbecued meal? And if you are someone who enjoys barbecuing in the winter months, this is the perfect time to try your hand at the skill. In the meanwhile, here are the best restaurants in Delhi for a barbeque delight.
This is just what the capital needed, a sit-down restaurant by the owners of H-man, The Pit in Basant Lok is the ultimate destination for those who love American-style barbeque. Opening doors to the public last year, it offers an array of dishes from perfectly cooked tenderloin to meat, pork belly, chops and more. While it may get a little heavy, we assure you this is the perfect season to indulge. We recommend the Philly cheese steak, lamb chilly dog and grilled salmon. While it is a haven for non-vegetarians, vegetarians can savour the wood oven pizzas.

Let’s admit it, North Indian barbeque is loved pan-India — and even across the world. India is popular for its authentic tandoori food, and when it comes to Indian barbeque, it doesn’t get better than Barbeque Nation. With multiple outlets across the city and NCR, the place serves up delicious meats and veggies that come marinated for you to grill on your table for the best flavour and the freshest treats. From kebabs to tikkas, garlic wings and more you will be drooling.
Where: DLF Avenue, Saket
Similar to the offerings at The Pit, HMan in Malviya Nagar was one of the first to introduce authentic western style barbeque in Delhi. And not only that, the flavours were spot on — juicy, and charred and a delicious smokiness about each grill had the city in love. While the place itself is small, it’s worth a visit for its flavours courtesy of low and slow-cooked meat. From sandwiches to grilled prawns and mouth-watering burgers it cannot get more indulgent.
Where: 3/31-32 Upper Ground Floor, Shivalik Colony, Malviya Nagar, New Delhi, Delhi 110017
