India, a country where we love our food and restaurateurs keep upping the game in the ever-changing culinary landscape. A country where the reputation of an eating house soars and dips faster than a stock option, but there are 3 Indian restaurants that have been ranked among the world’s best according to the Condé Nast Traveler guide. The magazine’s first-ever worldwide guide lists “207 of the greatest restaurants around the globe, according to those who eat, cook, and travel for a living.”

What follows are 3 Indian restaurants that are picked by the food writers, network of chefs and travellers. How many have you eaten at?

1. Bombay Canteen, Mumbai
“Amazing vibe, some of the best Indian/fusion food I’ve ever had.” – Sarah Khan

Started by three culinary geniuses – Floyd Cardoz, Sameer Seth and Yash Bhanage, Bombay Canteen has added a freshness to the food scene in Mumbai. Using local ingredients and building them up into world-class dishes, the eatery celebrates the variety and richness of our regional cuisines. The menu is eclectic, and has been designed to suit the palate and lifestyle of every individual. As the day progresses, the menu shifts colour and variety of servings. From Noon till 3:00 PM, there’s food akin to the ‘dabbawala’ style. Later in the day, the menu changes to serving ‘Din Bhar’, ‘Chota’, ‘Bada’ and ‘Patiala’ spread – all with an interesting blend of Indian flavours. The bar menu is also something to skim through as it includes Indianised cocktails.

Where: Unit-1, Process House, Kamala Mills, Lower Parel, Mumbai

2. Bukhara, New Delhi
“We love that nothing about this place—the decor, the yogurt and cane-vinegar marinated barrah kebab (leg of lamb)—has changed in 30 years. The result is the most masterful North-West Frontier tandoor-style cooking imaginable. Best of all, you eat everything with your hands.” – Pilar Guzmán

A meal at Bukhara is all about the experience. The food served here is a rare luxury, keeping up with the India’s glorious culinary traditions. With 6 items for vegetarians and 10 for the non-vegetarians, the menu is precise and has been maintained that way over the years. There are some good cocktails also that help smooth down the belly after a scrumptious fare. Having lived up to its standing reputation for more than three decades, Bukhara is almost a legend on its own and has a list of accolades and loyal clientele too long to recount.

Where: ITC Maurya, Hotel ITC Maurya, Sardar Patel Marg, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi

3. Indian Accent, New Delhi
“Unquestionably the best restaurant in New Delhi, thanks to the baingan bharta, a classic Punjabi eggplant dish served inside a cornetto cone made with sun-dried tomato. Dinner reservations are tough—go for a weekday lunch.” – Justin Bergman

Indian Accent is all about fusion, and is the only restaurant in India that is best suited as an introduction to Indian flavors. Offering one-of-its-kind dining experience, the restaurant creates an inflected version of Indian food. The menu has been curated by chef Manish Mehrotra, who has drawn creativity from global cuisine, but kept the roots in Indian street food. The restaurant also has a scintillating wine list for the connoisseurs of wine.

Where: The Manor Hotel, 77, Friends colony West, New Delhi
