Nestled in The Archway on Katherine Place, Delhi Streets brings authentic Indian market food to the city of Melbourne. 

Owner Charan Singh likes to pride himself on not running a typical Indian restaurant. Expect a more snack-based, market style affair.

The menu kicks off with a 'Feed Me' option, designed to take the stress away from the indecisive diner and let them sit back and relax while the chefs decide. Alternatively you can back yourself and order away off the 'Street Chaat' menu, which includes delights such as the pain puri, crispy cracker balls stuffed with potatoes, chickpeas, tamarind and yoghurt, or the Mumbai staple; pav bhaji, a spiced mixture of mashed veggies served in two toasty, buttery buns. 

It also does pizzas and wraps with an Indian focus, which sets this place apart from the more traditional Indian restaurants in Melbourne. The tandoori chicken pizza is an open-faced naan with masala sauce, chicken tikka, cheese, tomato and onions while the paneer pizza is a mouth-watering vegetarian option with capsicum, coriander, tomatoes, onions and crumbled Indian cheese on masala sauce. 

Then there are thali classics. This includes butter chicken or goat served with rice, naan, pappadum and pickles as well as heaps of vegetarian options. Keeping it all in the family, his dad, Resham, is manning the tandoor. From the tandoor oven, we recommend you try a mixed grill or stick with the classic chicken in a garlic and ginger marinade. 

Open Monday to Friday for lunch and Monday to Saturday for dinner, Delhi Streets is the perfect venue for any occasion, so long as the brief is fun and laidback.
