Best Butter Chicken in Delhi 2016: Beer Buddies Result

The Facebook community of Beer Buddies took the onus on themselves to find the best butter chicken in Delhi-NCR. The group of food and drink enthusiast went to almost all the recommendations they received on their group as a team, paying for each meal from their pocket and rating each eatery on a very comprehensive list of important features that included Chicken Size/Meat on Bone,  Chicken Roast/Smokiness, Chicken Taste/Chewy, Gravy Consistency, Color & Presentation, Gravy Creamy to Sour to Sweet – Ratio, Gravy Salt & Spiciness, Taste Chicken + Gravy, Overall Hygiene & Cleanliness and last but not the least ‘Overall Quantity v/s Price’. The group led by Rajeev Gulati took almost a month and spent over Rs40,000 for the group to complete the hunt.

Below are the results of their Best Butter Chicken Hunt:

1 Lantern’s: Rajendra Place

“We are also giving you analysis (in picture format) about price of full butter chicken (including all taxes and service charges, if any) along with the rank they have been able to score to give you an idea about money spent v/s quality & quantity received”, said Rajeev Gulati

I am sure these results will not only bring shocks and surprises for many but will raise lot many eyebrows. Some of the die-hard fan following restaurants have toppled and some dark horses have emerged – but that was the entire purpose of this hunt, to evaluate the best butter chicken in Delhi and that too with most uniform methodology.
