Winners of the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2012 and 2013,...

Winners of the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2012 and 2013, Delhi Food Tours (DFT) is Delhi's most reputed and reliable organization for culinary adventures! Food tours of local cuisine (with tea tastings), cooking classes conducted at a private estate (including Delhi's only barbecue masterclass), recommendations on high end dining experiences and an endless supply of bad jokes! Take your pick (the bad jokes are not optional). If you are looking to get an insight into food from across India or if you ever wondered about the difference between North Indian and South Indian Food, all you need is a DFT experience! With over 550 guests from 37 countries in our first year, DFT is your one stop shop for guidance in all aspects of Delhi's food. From food tours of local cuisine to molecular cocktails at Delhi's best bars, DFT can help you find exactly what you're looking for. The creation of a former lawyer turned restaurant critic and his wife (a corporate trainer), all tours and experiences are customized and operated by the owners personally. We are the only multi-dimensional food guides in Delhi that can guide you on every aspect of Delhi's food culture. Our clients include the Australian High Commission, the American Embassy, the Canadian High Commission and the American Women's Association. In addition, we are recommended by the Concierges of Delhi's best 5 star hotels on account of our standards of hygiene and level of service. We are not one of those operators that will try to sell you a Jaipur trip or a historical tour to pocket some extra cash. We stick to what we know which is food in all its glorious forms, shapes, sizes and flavors! If food is your thing, look no further.

A wonderful evening sampling so many different foods. We would not have trusted ourselves to sample food off a stall without our brilliant guide who has the knowledge to know the hygienic places suitable for foreign visitors. Not only were we treated to delicious food but also visited a flower market that we would never have found on our own.... More

We had a great time touring the markets and inside restaurants in Old Delhi. Though we tried street food, we never felt uneasy about the cleanliness or quality of the food. Overall, it was a great experience and I would strongly recommend you take this tour; it shows you a side of India you dont readily get to see.

My wife and I were taken by Prashant and Ayesha on an epic food tour. We experienced world class teas, tasty dosas, amazing kebabs, and much much more. We drove around Delhi in Prashant's car and got to him better. It felt more like a night with old friends than an organized tour.

A friend and I started our India adventure by having a cooking lesson with 'Mum'. I can't say enough wonderful things about this experience. Mrs. Kalra is a gracious, warm, welcoming hostess, who loves to share her knowledge of cooking and her country. Mum starts by offering you a welcome drink at a table on the veranda where you get...

We had a private cooking lesson at the home of Mrs Kalra. It is a great house, where she actually lives, on the outskirts of Delhi. She is an outstanding hostess and chef teacher. She explained every ingredient in detail and provided recipes that we cooked from scratch. At the end, she had set a magnificent table where we ate... More

We had an extra day in Delhi at the start of our two week tour and decided to sign up for the cooking class with Delhi Food Tours. It was amazing!!! The class ended up just being for the two of us. We were greeted with delicious lassi's and marigold necklaces! After relaxing for a moment after our long drive... More

Prashant and Ayesha planned a great tour for us with wide variety of food. Prashant was our guide for the evening. He was very friendly and informative. It felt more like hanging out with a friend than being on a tour. We had so much fun trying out different foods and visiting different neighborhoods! Thank you so much!
