We don’t need to tell you how times have changed and how more and more people opt for frozen dinners instead of making an effort to make fresh food. Sure, you can always get that plate of momos packed from outside your office (Kent’s in Defence Colony makes the best!), but the question is whether you really want to do just that. What if you get company? (Cue in tune from a horror show.) What we can tell you is about some cool takeaway restaurants in Delhi, where you can get freshly made hot food that you can take away.

Lhasa Restaurant

If you’ve ever craved for good Tibetan food, but are too busy or lazy to go all the way to Majnu Ka Tila to get some, you can stop right here.
