Catering to the die-hard foodies of Delhi for 50 years now *woah*, National is among the most famous dhabas in the city, and deservedly so. Their classic Butter Chicken and Butter Naan combo here is absolutely delish - something you’ll keep coming back for! And their unmatched taste is no mystery - the board outside the restaurant claims the use of “pure desi ghee” in their delicacies, and the food inside does NOT disappoint!
