About New Dilli

Altrincham’s New Dilli takes Indian cuisine back to basics, way back to basics. Entrepreneurial restaurateur Manzar Hashim has even dubbed the place after the old name for New Delhi, the Indian capital when it comes to gourmet. Moreover, in recruiting executive chef Mohammed Naeem, Hashim found not merely a good Indian cook, but an expert in Ayurvedic culinary practice. Together they offer Greater Manchester what they like to call vintage Indian cuisine, old-school South Asian that doesn’t feel obligated to pander to contemporary tastes. Find New Dilli – the real deal – on The Downs.

Further Information

Let’s just mention right away that New Dilli’s innovative take on what Greater Manchester restaurants often manage to devolve into run-of-the-mill Indian has spawned a legion of loyal followers that not only like to dine in at New Dilli’s premises along Altrincham’s The Downs but also like to have a crack at unlocking chef Naeem’s secrets to a sensual curry. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian cooking classes, informed by the Asian subcontinent’s ancient Ayurvedic traditions, are always popular, with spots selling out fast. Just so you know. That said, some secrets are better left for safekeeping in more able hands, so why not just book a table and turn to New Dilli’s extensive menu.

The chef’s specials at this special indeed Indian restaurant down Altrincham’s The Downs are a good representative slice across New Dilli’s fresh (that is, stubbornly classic) take on Indian cuisine. The lamb chop kadhai treats tender lamb to a traditional, spicy sauce, while two TAK-A-TAK dishes take lobster and prawns, respectively, and griddle them with coarsely-chopped onions, fresh coriander, topped off with a very authentic flourish: the fruit pods of the ajwain flower, a pungent spice common in northern India and Rajasthan. It’s touches like this, applied to relatively rustic – and entirely robust – Indian dishes, that ensure New Dilli will be keeping Greater Manchester’s Indian gourmands satisfied for years to come.

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in the North West. The menu is varied with plenty for vegetarians. Each dish is individual and described- forget the usual formula of a sauce with various food, not here! Staff and chef have been there for years and friendly. Food is excellent and Indian beers are on offer as as wine. We just had a main course each with vegetarian side dishes and rice. That was enough for a hungry party of three. Strongly recommended

It was our first visit here and the food quality was very good. Everything was well made, staff were friendly. Will be back again soon!

excellent food, and lots of it, attentive service. there was an extensive menu and not all run of the mill standards. we were sharing anyway so went with their set menu choices. While the meat dishes were beautifully tender and flavoursome the paneer with peppers, which we probably wouldn't have normally chosen was excellent. The star of the show though was in fact the black lentils. fantastic. Good to see that the 'old' Dilli values live on in New Dilli. My only criticism would be to have a better selection of non-alcoholic drinks for those who are driving or don't indulge. we've booked again to take some of our friends - we'll take a taxi :)

Authentic Indian food. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there recently. We loved the variety of starters, and the main courses of Kashmiri lamb rogan josh, and prawn tik tak were excellent, accompanied by Bombay aloo, dal makhani, nans and rice were lovely. We are so full, however the unordered banana split from the restaurant went down a treat. We highly recommend New Dilli for great food at reasonable prices.

We went there with two friends on a Monday evening, and the restaurant was relatively quiet. The food was tasty and was served by a friendly waitress. We particularly enjoyed the lamb and chicken tikka in the non-vegetarian platter, which, although nominally for two people, was just right for the four of us, especially with the poppadums that we also ordered. The nicest main course was the Hydrabadi chicken curry. The portion sizes are very generous, and we were unable to finish them, so the restaurant prepared a doggy bag for us to take home. We will be going back, but will definitely order less food, next rime!

We like to try different places and had been here for a cookery course there the previous weekend, and decided to give it a try. We booked for 6.00pm there were a few people in but we were told they did not have our booking, Angela said she would fit us in but they were full later, if we had been a party I doubt we would have got in. The restaurant was ok, starters nicely spiced but the mains were a bit disappointing, small portion of lamb in a thin gravy, the chicken was leg meat, a bit bitty. Won't be rushing back, we have been to better and there are still places to try.

Nice & cosy indian restaurant with modern decor. The starters were fantastic, tasty poppadoms with better than usual dips & beautiful, homemade samosas that were very hearty. The mains arrived soon after we finished & they were also delicious. Special thanks to the helpful & chatty waitress who served us, we didn't get her name but she had dark hair & glasses & was helpful & attentive.

Remembered the old restaurant with the same name and I was expecting the same delicious food. Well, I was disappointed. Nothing wrong with the food but it was just very ordinary. The space is fine and the prices are 'market rate.' With so many restaurants to choose from difficult to imagine why I would go back in a hurry. I have tried to be fair and as I say this was by no means a bad place but going out to eat is expensive. Should be substantially better than ordering a take-away meal and this was not. Oh, the white wine was good !
