Delhi Dhaba Celebrates 29 Years With $10 Off Each $50 Order

Arlington’s Delhi Dhaba Indian Restaurant is celebrating its 29th birthday by giving diners a gift: Until the end of July, each order of $50 or over will be $10 less.

The $10 discount and the birthday celebration is in perfect keeping with the long-time restaurant’s whimsical philosophy of “khao, piyo, aish karo” — eat, drink and have fun.

The discount applies to online orders or those phoned in to 703-524-0008.

The discount is in addition to Dehli Dhaba’s announcement last month when it reopened from its temporary shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic that a new menu option was now available: The new “Family Meal” combination offers four samosas, two chicken entrées, a vegetarian entrée, two orders of naan and two orders of rice for $39.95, and has proved to be a very popular as a carryout offering. As it should: It is one of the best deals in Arlington.

The smart move would be to add a few of India’s popular beers to the Family Meal order — Taj, Flying Horse, Kingfisher, and Khukuri — and get the $10 discount. Or add a few options from the regular menu, which you can find here.

Delhi Dhaba regulars may not know what a “dhaba” is, but the word informs the philosophy behind the cooking: A dhaba is a roadside café, serving wholesome and hot Punjabi food to weary travelers in search of a hardy and inexpensive meal. That tradition continues, and has continued for nearly 30 years, at Delhi Dhaba. And they are very happy as a popular Arlington small business, owned by Arlingtonians, to open their kitchen once again.

Delhi Dhaba is open Monday-Friday from 4-10 p.m., Saturday-Sunday from 12-10 p.m. and  located at 2424 Wilson Blvd.; the phone number is 703-524-0008; contact Delhi Dhaba here.
