Peter Cat And More Make The Global List Of Legendary Restaurants

When it comes to serving up a side of legendary, trust Indian restaurants to be on their A-game and deliver consistently delicious food every single time. Hence, it comes as no surprise that 7 out of the world’s 150 most legendary restaurants are Indian. Here’s a quick look at the ones that made it to the 2023 list.

Paragon, Kozhikode

Established in 1939 and known for its Malabari fare, Paragon is one of the first Indian restaurants to feature on the extensive list at number 11, making it legendary for its biryani. Frequented by the who’s who across various walks of life, the chicken biryani and kappa-meen curry is what gives it its cult status.

Tunday Kababi, Lucknow

Serving up the softest, most lip-smacking galouti kebabs and paratha, Tunday Kababi in Lucknow is a simple, non-fussy establishment serving up the juiciest kebabs by the thousands each day. Priced as little as 4 Rupees per piece, these soft kebabs, available in chicken and beef, are unbeatable in taste, texture and flavour.

Peter Cat, Kolkata

Synonymous with being the birthplace of chelow kebabs, Peter Cat in Kolkata transports you back to the fancy restaurants of the 60s and 70s, still maintaining their supremacy in serving up the most amazing and mildly spiced chicken and mutton kebabs with a buttered rice. So iconic are these kebabs that a trip to the city is incomplete without stopping by here for a nap-inducing meal.

Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba, Murthal

Serving up simple meals of dal-chawal, roti-sabzi, this roadside dhaba that caters mainly to truck drivers and famished travellers has risen to fame for its delicious aloo parathas that are doused with a generous pat of butter. Sitting on charpais and digging into plates of freshly made parathas with yoghurt and mango pickle is what makes this the dream!

Mavali Tiffin Rooms, Bangalore

The concept of a tiffin room in Bangalore encapsulates a quick service eatery where people stop by to get a bite before they get on with their day; and Mavali Tiffin Room or MTR, is no different. Making it to the list for its fluffy rava idlis, the restaurant also offers the most amazing masala dosa, bonda and upma for hungry customers.

Karim, Delhi

As the go-to place for the best Mughlai food in Delhi, Karim’s finds a spot on the global list for its mutton korma. Juicy, melt-in-your-mouth pieces of meat cooked in a gravy perfumed with whole spices and aromatics, the korma is robustly flavoured and pairs best with naans taken fresh off from the tandoor.

Ram Ashraya, Mumbai

Opening as early as 5:30 am to crowds of people waiting to get a bit of steaming hot idlis dunked in sambar and chutney, Ram Ashraya in Mumbai also serves up a mean plate of upma and buttery pineapple sheera. The one thing you should know for sure is that be sure to wait a minimum of 20 minutes to be seated as the crowds don’t cease.
