Where To Eat On Business Travel To New Delhi


Why You Don’t Want To Try That Street Vendor Or “Local” Restaurant

In American cities, people constantly eat food from street vendors and local restaurants. These dining options provide clean and acceptable choices for your eating experience. This is not the case in New Delhi.

New Delhi is fantastic for new business opportunities, but the economy and development in this city lacks. An abundance in poverty directs street vendors to those individuals, choosing low cost as their selling point instead of first class quality.

For dining out, your best idea is to ask your concierge or butler for advice. They will know the area, and can recommend a clean, high quality restaurant.

New Delhi restaurant codes don’t enforce at the same level as those in America, so if you feel a restaurant is unclean or simply not up to your standard, it would be your best idea to go somewhere different.

Tipping In Upscale Hotels And Restaurants

In general, tip only at upscale restaurants. Tipping taxi drivers is unnecessary on all occasions.
Service in hotels and restaurants tends to be upscale compared to the surroundings, and you are expected to tip if the service was exceptional. The more upscale the hotel, the larger the tip, but 10% is the average amount. Porters at hotels and train stations should be tipped for helping with your luggage. The tip can be minimal, and can be only around 20 rupees a bag.

Understanding Money In New Delhi

New Delhi uses rupees as their form of currency. Often times, when a traveler first sees their airfare in rupees, they wonder how you will afford travel to New Delhi. Despite New Delhi’s slow economy, the exchange rate is extremely favorable to most Western countries. Although it does change on a daily basis, a US dollar is equivalent to about 50 Rupees. A single rupee is divided into paise, which are denominated into coins of 5, 10, 20, 25, and 50 each. Rupees come in coins of 1, 2, 5, and 10 rupee. Bank notes are available in 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, and 1000 rupee amounts. The rupee system is relatively easy to use once you become accustomed.
