Delhi Club Back Open for Business

Clarendon’s Delhi Club restaurant (1135 N. Highland Street) is back open after a kitchen fire forced it to close in June.

Delhi Club first opened its doors Friday night, for dinner, according to manager Mir Hussain. The restaurant has been attracting sizable crowds ever since the reopening, he added.

“Business is good,” a relieved but busy Hussain said during today’s lunch service. “We opened on Friday and Friday was very busy.”

Delhi Club originally had hoped to open a week after the fire, but only recently received the last of the county permits required to reopen.

    I could smell it a block away last week as they slowly restarted the great curry-producing machinery…I was getting hungry already. Welcome back!

      That crap stinks!

        Perhaps it is your shorts that stink?

        I guess it’s easier to call cuisine that you’re not familiar with ‘stinky’ than to try something different.

    Their food is great, bar naan.

    I was there on Friday night, the new outdoor seating area is great! I’m glad to see Mir and everyone back as normal, and I’ll be back very soon to make up for lost Chicken Tikka Masala!! Best thing EVER!!

      Tandoori wings…I swear Delhi Club should form a collaboration and start delivering them next door to Hard Times. I would order so many during football games…

      That’s a pet peeve of mine, outdoor seating, not just the Delhi Club but all of it in Arlington. The sidewalks get very narrow and crowded so that a restaurant can set out seats.

      off topic, but it would be a good ARLnow topic of discussion.

      U B Smokin’ dat wacky tobakki, homes. Delhi Club rocks

    Delhi Club is the BEST Indian restaurant in the DC area (including the over-hyped Rasika in Penn Quarter). I’ve missed you and your Chix Tikka Masala. Welcome back! You’ve been missed.
