Delhi Dhaba was established in 1991 by a local Arlingtonian family that emigrated from New Delhi, India to the United States in the ’70s. Their vision was to bring the colors, flavors, and riches of a traditional Indian Dhaba to the locals in the metropolitan area. Traditionally, a Dhaba is a roadside restaurant or cafe found on highways and on the outskirts of cities, towns, and villages. Dhabas were initially started by enterprising Punjabi’s to cater to the needs of truckers, for wholesome, clean, and hot authentic Punjabi food at any hour of the day or night. Over the years Delhi Dhaba has become one the most well known and respected Indian restaurants in Arlington. The family continues to push the envelope of new ideas every day while staying true to their culture and values.

I would definitely go back for the tiffin I think. 2 proteins and 1 veggie. Such a good deal. Lasted me 2 meals. And the naan was huge! Also the guys working were really nice and explained a lot of the menu items to me.

Great spot for a quick Indian dinner. Interestingly they have a buffet for dinner as well. Food is great and not loaded with salt like other Indian restaurants.

Sanja, September 9, 2019

On my jogs, I have run by this place 100 times, and I've always wanted to check it out, but I never took the time to stop in. I was really pleasantly surprised! First of all, I had no idea that they offered dine-in and carryout for both food AND drinks! That was a pleasant surprise and it was really cool! I ordered one of their box specials, and the food was absolutely delicious! I loved the butter chicken, palak paneer, and chicken tiki masala. I'm really excited to go back and dine in!

Jillian, September 8, 2019

Great fast service good food

Jimmy, August 11, 2019

Love the variety you could get in the tiffin meal (2 proteins, 1 vegetable, and rice or Naan). Mango Lassi was excellent. We will definitely be back!

Stacy, July 25, 2019

The environment is very nice & peaceful! Ordering is straightforward. I think they should include a printed menu similar to their online menu that explains what is contained within each Indian dish’s name. For $15, I would’ve expected more generous portion sizes - just fill up the takeout boxes a little bit more and you will get satisfied repeat customers!

Julia, July 22, 2019

Fast service and restaurant was clean. Really enjoyed the butter chicken and the Naan was fresh out of the oven.
