Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Specially with Mr.Mohan Lal, his hospitality makes you feel like no less than a Royal Family, yet his...friendliness makes you feel at home.

It has been a pleasure to sample the culinary delights that are on offer at this tribute to Avadhi cuisine. The knowledgeable service team led by Mr. Paliwal can help you make choices based on your palate and preferences. And Master Chef Qureishi is often...here to ensure that his son, the current Chef in-charge is rendering his menu and creations to perfection. There are many Indian restaurants in Delhi - but if you want to eat in one that has perfected Avadhi food and ensures that it is assembled using the best possible ingredients - then Dum Pukht is the best option. We rate it the best Indian restaurant in Delhi and perhaps in India.More

Sometimes it is difficult to review a restaurant that consistently exceeds expectations. The restaurant is a tribute to a cuisine initiated by the Nawab of Oudh and handed down within the family of his chefs for generations. The flavors, the aromas, the quality of meat-vegetables-spices...- and the class-leading service by servers who are knowledgeable about the cuisine. The complete experience is difficult to surpass across any Indian restaurant in Delhi (and perhaps, India). If you enjoy traditional and exceptional Indian cuisine - then this is the best restaurant for you. The latest chef is from the same family that worked in the Nawab’s kitchen over 300 years ago, creating the delicacies that are on offer here today. Messrs Paliwal and Uniyal manage the exemplary service in this restaurant and ensure your comfort. It is a relaxed meal - not a venue for a rushed one - and one that we enjoy every time we visit.More

I visited dum Pukht in mar 2022, and i have to say I am really happy about the visit. It deserves all the awards and appreciation it has received in time by which I made the decision to visit with my family on our special...occasion. When i say it deserves all the appreciation, i mean that it is keeping all promises and more that you can dream of. Dum Pukht is a North Indian, mughlai(more towards Lucknow cuisine in preparation style) and yes, even for the veg entrees it is still the best best best! A few best mentions of item entrees would be aalu bukhara kofta, dal-dum-pukht(arhar dal) , and guchhi-pulao(names might not be as Moreover the ambiance of the place makes you feel you are experiencing the real India and a true Indian home. A fine experience is incomplete without some good loving and caring people around you who can guide you towards your best experiences. I would really thanks Naveen kc & Kundan paswan, for all the best recommendations even till the end of our little family photography session! And last but not the least, Janardhan dhyani, thanks alot for the wonderful story telling of the cuisine and the restaurant and the full end to end management of our table! :) Thanks Dum-Pukht for a wonderful evening, hope to visit you soon!More

No terrace. You have to go down a couple of flights of stairs down from the main floor to what may be a basement or sunken area.
