I first went for the buffet, like most students, and I was happy that there were many vegetarian options. The spiciness level of the buffet is rather mild. I've found that the food is much better when you order it off of the menu, though. It tastes fresher, and you can order however spicy you like! When I get take-out, my husband and I get 2 meals each out of a $30 order, which is great! We usually get 2 entrees and 2 naan, sometimes an extra rice if we order our dishes spicy. Take out is totally worth it. Sometimes I find the service a little much -- someone is always asking if you're happy with the food and if you need anything else. It's usually nice, but sometimes you just want to hang out with your friend and eat with less interruptions.

College students come for the cocktails and all-you-can-eat $11.95 dinner buffet. But just around the corner are excellent Indian restaurants.

New Dehli is the restaurant that taught me to love Indian food - particularly "Chicken Tikka Masala," (aka "CTM") As all CTM lovers learn, every Indian restaurant has their own style of CTM - None of them are the same - a lot of them are similar in some ways, but none are the same. New Dehli's CTM is one of my favorite places for CTM. I can authoritatively say that in the city of Philadelphia - te 3 best Chicken Tikka Masala's are made the the following three restaurants: New Dehli Palace at the Ben Tiffin. New Dehli also has a great buffet, which, for high quality indian food, is a good deal.... A lot of Penn students eat here due to the buffet quality and price - so if you like looking at educated girls or guys with good taste in food - this is the place......They also have very good dessert.

I've only had Indian food about twice prior to going to New Delhi. I've heard about this place from my friends and decided to take my boyfriend here. The price is good for college students like myself, and the food is good too. My boyfriend never had indian food before so we decided to go with the buffet style so that he could try whatever he likes. He really liked the chicken tikka marsala and naan, which is my perfect combination too. Then we asked for the dessert that came with the buffet. Our bill came out to be $30 including the tax&tip (we didn't get drinks) I'm thinking next time we come again, we'll just get the chicken tikka marsala and lots of naan!

i went to this place once expecting good food but it was poor. i'll never go here again, there are plenty of other places. This place should change its name to "come here if you want poor indian food." I am indian by the way.

In order to find the best ethnic foods, I always ask working class natives whenever I find them. The majority of indians i ask 'what is your favorite indian restaurant' answer New Delhi. It really is good and authentic, just don't expect good decorations. And ps, take my advice and ask every native you can where the best ____ food is. You'll be surprised in some cases but you'll also find other places that you had never heard of.

This was the third Indian place I've been to in University City, and I really wasn't all that impressed. The food was fine, but the selection wasn't huge, especially with condiments like raita missing. The atmosphere was pretty dingy as well, and I felt like apologizing to my out-of-town visitor for going there! However, I lived in England for several years where the national dish is curry. So maybe I'm used to a higher standard, but I really think you can do better in this part of town.
