We came here for the beer, which was good, but quite expensive. The food was average. The restaurant is dark, but if you get a table at the window, it is a good place to spot street life.

I've just spent one month in Delhi, mainly in the hotel Vivek, on which rooftop you can enjoy the Sam's Café. (there is actually another Sam's Café direct on the street too but nothing interesting). This place has a big terrace from where you can enjoy a nice view on Delhi's Main Bazar, PaharGanj. The food is quite inter-asian, but... More

This little rooftop cafe was just what was required. Great pizza, steak and chicken and very friendly service. The prices were very low and the menu selection was very adequate. We were even given a puppet show as song for a few dollars to finish off the night. Highly recommended.

I had visited here with my friends. Its located in hotel vivek which hardly 4 to 5 min walk from metro station. Lots of variety in food and drinks. Ambience was decent and crowd was also good. Must visit pace if you are near by.

Sam's Café, nestled in the shady and popular main street of Paharganj. The Rooftop Café is quite a place to enjoy a chilly winter evening or a lazy breakfast! Their menu is decently varied and food is fabulous. The servers are attentive yet not intrusive. The vibe of this place is just perfect! I'm definitely going back!

Thoroughly enjoyed the French fries after eating curries & Dahl for a number of weeks. The drinks were icy cold and we felt safe eating here.
