If you’ve overloaded on curries and need a respite, the veggie-friendly Anokhi Café attached to the Anokhi boutique is the perfect tonic. There’s real coffee, fresh juices, terrific cakes and cookies, plus sandwiches, falafels, bean burgers, pizzas and amazing salads. The city’s most appealing rooftop restaurant is the Peacock, with quirky original decor featuring cute metal chairs and a striking peacock canopy – particularly pretty after dark. There’s a big menu of veg and non-veg Indian options, all well prepared, with flavoursome sauces, crisp breads and cold beers, plus Chinese, pizzas and the usual Western snacks. For a blowout try Suarna Mahal at the Rambagh Palac, Indian fine-dining in a superbly over-the-top Neoclassical-style dining room.
