Khan Market

Delhi Dec 02, 2019

Delhi's Khan Market is the most expensive retail location in India. The market is small and posh, full of expensive clothes shops and cafes that address all your needs with little or no hassle.

Here it's not like the typical Delhi shopping experience. Only brick and mortar shops are present, no street vendors.


Ambience

If you have stepped foot in Lajpat or Chandni Chowk, Khan Market will feel like a breath of fresh air. The scene is much less chaotic and is packed with small beautiful boutiques.

Khan Market is clean and crowd-free. It is not recommended for tourists who are looking for a 'real' Indian bazaar experience.

All in all, a decent place to get away from the bustle and shop in peace. It's easy to while away the hours here.

A go-to spot for a night out!


Shopping

Who would have thought an odd-looking alleyway with dogs lying around could hide such a rich array of gifts, eateries, fashion, and luxurious stores.

On the outside, the market is surrounded by little stores selling everything from perfumes and handbags to pet goods. The inner passage plays host to some of India's top fashion outlets like FabIndia and Cottons Jaipur. There are a handful of internationally recognised brands as well like Marks and Spencer, The Body Shop, W H Smith. A bookstore named Bahrisons is also on the premises.

The prices are high for India but still cheaper than the West. Quality of stuff is better than the low-cost markets. Adjust your budget accordingly, and you'll be in for a good time.


Food

Khan Market is all about Khan Chacha's amazing rolls, be it kakori or chicken tikka. There are plenty of tempting options including bakeries, barbecues, beer cafes and more. Big Chill is the 'it' place to eat; there is always a queue of patrons waiting for a table, which is a good sign. Townhall restaurant is another favourite. Do not judge a book by its cover! Walk up to 2 sets of stairs and be blown away by the fantastic, decor, and food that will take your breath away in presentation as well as in taste.

Azam's shop for non-veg sells mouth-watering Seekh Kebabs. End the evening with a decadent slice of cheesecake from 'The Cakery'.

Khan market offers exotic fruits and vegetables as well.
