“market of crowed”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

Loved the ride into the market and watching the busy and colorful shops.We took the metro from New Delhi to Chadni Chowk. It took barely 10 minutes. On the streets, it would be a half hour or more due to traffic. This is real Old Delhi. We enjoyed walking around and doing some shopping. Very crowded streets, Motorcylcles, Bikes, and even bulls pulling carts.

“Chandani Chowk- Full of Life”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

No doubt this place has been ranked as No.1 here... Whatta place it is- full of life ... A real example of old delhi and a real paradise for food lovers ... From Jalebi to faluda to chaat to samosa (list is endless)... One can enjoy variety of food here at very affordable price .... I just love this place, more thn shopping, I enjoy n love the "FOOD" here...

One Advise- avoid going with kids and if you go with kids, please please take proper care of them... this place is very very crowded and you cant walk without hitting other people...

“The Essence of "Dilli"”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

The charm of old city still evident. A walk from Red fort through by lanes of Chandni Chowk is quite mesmerizing if one has a taste for History. No words are enough to describe the essence of this place.

“wonderful, but know what this place is like before you go”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

This old part of the city is a monument to chaos, noise, congestion, and confusion, yet it works. Do not go unless you are adventurous and don't mind being bumped by hordes of people and dodging cars or rickshaws. You will be hassled by pushy salesmen and women but remember their economic status versus your own. either don't give them a look or firmly say no to stop unwelcome aggressiveness. Food smells and looks great but even our guide said travelers should avoid eating or drinking anything there. Its crazy aromatic (food, trash, body odor) challenging and just plain fun. Go rested, take a guide and finish with a rickshaw ride as a final test of your nerves

“CRAZY!”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

It was so busy and hectic it was really hard to enjoy. Plus, I didn't know if the food was safe to eat for my American stomach so I couldn't enjoy that either. It sure did look good though. It was cool to see but it's definitely not a must-see.
