10 Best Places To Have Momos In Delhi If You’re A Momo Junkie
There’s something that renders Delhi quite incomplete without Momos—those tiny little dumplings stuffed with the most delicious fillings of chicken, mutton, vegetables, paneer; you name it! But, while every street, nook and corner of the city has at least one designated momo vendor, not every momo vendor sells the greatest dumplings in the city and any momo-virgin can actually ruin their initial experiences with the delicacy if they don’t get it right!
Fret not, foodies of the city! Thanks to us, you can now hit up only the most popular momo joints in Delhi and eat to your heart’s desire!
1. Dolma Aunty’s Momos
Where: Lajpat Nagar, 2, New Delhi
She’s been around for longer than you can remember, serving up piping hot and steamy momos that sell better than hot cakes. In fact, Dolma Aunty has become so famous that people actually go to Lajpat Nagar from all across Delhi just to savour the momos.
Suggestion: Carry a bottle of chilled water with you because you’re going to need it after the momos cause your ears to burn and your nose to run.
2. Dilli Haat
Where: Opposite INA Market, New Delhi
Enter Dilli Haat and head straight to the Mizoram and Nagaland food stalls inside the popular cultural haven. The momos are served to you, along with a spicey chutney, a soup and is so filling, you might want to keep this as your starters as well as your main course.
Suggestion: Order the famed fruit beer along with a plate of the dimsums. It’s the best combination in the world!
Where: Satya Niketan, New Delhi
One of the city’s earliest fast food restaurants that emerged around the college culture; the students of South Campus frequent QD’s almost on an everyday basis at Satya Niketan for their absolutely delicious Chinese food. And while most of the offerings on the menu are worth a try, you should definitely look at the selection of momos—try the Tandoori Momos. They’re a specialty at QD’s.

Where: Majnu Ka Tila, New Delhi
Tee Dee’s is rather popular if you’ve ever been to Majnu Ka Tila and remains a favourite choice with those who want to eat their hearts content without burning a hole in their pockets. Most of their delicacies are completely irresistible; but, you have got to try their dimsum selections.
Suggestions: Go for the Chilli Chicken Momos and the Devils Mutton Momos; they’re everything!
5. Wow! Momo
Where: Across Delhi NCR
I first discovered Wow! Momo on a hot summer’s day when I was tired, sweaty and irrevocably hungry with a craving for good Chinese that wouldn’t overwhelm the crap out of me. That’s when I saw the bright yellow board with its quirky prints staring right back at me. If you’re a first timer, it’s the colourful exteriors that will lure you to Wow! Momo. After that, you’ll keep coming back for more.
Suggestions: You should definitely try the Pan Fried Chicken Momos in Szechwan Sauce, the Tandoori Chicken Momos and the chicken momo burger!
Where: Janpath, New Delhi
A lot of us don’t really know about the small little Depaul’s outlet hidden away inside the street market at Janpath. But, once you’ve figured it out, rest assured, you’re going to keep wanting to go back, even if it’s just for the amazing chicken momos at Depaul’s.
Suggestions: Try the chicken momos along with a bottle of their popular cold coffee. It’s a surprisingly good combination.
7. Café Brown Sugar
Where: GK- 1, M-Block Market, New Delhi
It’s true when they say that some of the best things come from the unlikeliest of all places. This blink-and-you-miss-it shop is at the end of the market, and has been there since the golden days of the market, right before you step out of it. And while they have some very interesting and mouth-watering fast food options on offer, it’s really the momos that are mind blowing.
Suggestions: While most of the wheat steamed momo options are great, the chicken ones are a popular favourite.

This authentic Northeastern cuisine joint in Safdarjung has become a popular stopover for every foodie. The great food, along with the fact that the owner, a Mrs Mary personally caters to the customers, ensuring that their food is piping hot and delicious as ever. While absolutely everything on the menu is worth trying out, you should definitely try the momos at Rosang as they’re some of the best authentic dimsums in the city!

One of the most popular and thronged places in Delhi University’s Kamla Nagar—the students who come here for a scrumptious bite of momos is ever increasing.
