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.

Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
Easy to carry out. Large portions and delicious flavors. Had to wait awhile but staff was friendly.
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.
Delicious! The chicken tikka masala is a real highlight... recommend to anyone eating at Delhi dhaba.

I have wanted to have Lamb Rogan Josh for years being that lamb is my favorite meat and Rogan Josh is supposed to be one of the most popular Indian dishes around the world and finally this place delivered. My wife even said that it is her all-time favorite Indian dish.
Great food, poor customer service
Great palak paneer and the salespeople there were so nice

Roganjosh is my go to!!
Great overall experience. Food was delicious and freshly cooked. Cocktails were refreshing and very affordable.
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!

Great fast service good food
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!
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!
Fast service and restaurant was clean. Really enjoyed the butter chicken and the Naan was fresh out of the oven.
Friendly service, great food
Taneer lunch deal was a great value
The food was fantastic!
Best mango lassi I've ever had.
Some of the best Indian food I’ve ever had! Very friendly service too.
