I went to the Carnatic Café over 2 days in January. The Ragi Rotis and the Malleswaram Dosa are very authentic Kannadiga food and very wholesome. Coffee is good, service is good and prices are very reasonable. This is a great place to try out Karnataka food in Delhi.

It's worth a visit as the food is authentic,delicious and different from what is served at most South Indian food joints. Ragi roti along with the vegetable and gunpowder was awesome. The best part is that they a different menu each day...all the more reason for more visits

Carnatic cafe is one of the best places to have Karnataka food in Delhi. This is a small quiet place located in 'India Mall' in NFC. All their preparations were fresh, and definitely a trip down memory lane to my days in Bangalore. They have quite an expansive menu, which entitles multiple repeat visits. And, on top of that everything... More

We are a couple in India for the first time. We have a little knowledge of Northern India cuisine and none for Southern India. So, read the TA reviews and "went for it." Very happy we did! Used "Google" and our waiter to determine what to order. Had a fab experience and may return before leaving Delhi.

Carnatic Cafe is your go-to for great, fresh food, irrespective of whether you're going solo, on a date, with friends or family.
