Delhi ‘O’ Delhi once again emerged victorious in 2022 New South Wales Achievement Award organized by the Restaurant and Caterer Association (R&CA). It was awarded in the Indian restaurant category. This is the fourth consecutive year that this restaurant nestled in Sydney’s Newtown has won the award in this category.
Delhi ‘O’ Delhi has been serving fine Indian cuisine since 2007. The restaurant’s founder and owner, Javed Khan, told The Australia Today,
“Inspired by the ancient cooking methods of India, the restaurant’s cooking style is a modern interpretation of India – a perfect balance between traditional and contemporary techniques while paying homage to our humble roots.”

Delhi ‘O’ Delhi celebrates India’s historic cuisine and serves timeless delicacies from different parts of the country led by their head chef Kailash Chand. You will find Seekh Kebabs from the valleys of Kashmir, Duck Curry from Assam, Fish Curry from Goa and many more on their ever-changing menu. The restaurant also offers a dedicated vegetarian and vegan menu.
After completing his hotel management in Kolkata, Javed began his journey in the dining room and kitchen of Oberoi Hotels, an award-winning Indian luxury hotel group with properties around the world. It was here that Javed first understood that excellence in food and service was a true art form.
Javed told The Australia Today that his philosophy and message to the team was to always believe in doing things the right way with all his dedication and determination.
“Sooner or later, your work will be recognized at the right time. Great work will always attract attention”.

He also mentions the support of the community in the success of the restaurant and that it was important to give back to the community.
“Throughout Delhi ‘O’ Delhi’s 15-year culinary journey, the team has always been blessed with incredibly supportive locals and repeat customers who form the foundation of our wonderful community. Their constant support is an inspiration for us to continue to strive for excellence in our culinary experience”.
“We create so many memories with our guests! For example, Last Valentines I was so excited to see that one of our regulars came with his girlfriend to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I remember when this same gentleman came as a child with his parents and ordered the children’s menu!
“Giving back to the community is an integral part of our business, from sourcing local ingredients, Australian wines and supporting the Kids Cancer Project with our Good Korma initiative which has raised over $6,000 since the project launched in 2021,” Javed said.
As well as being the winner of R&CA’s NSW Awards for Excellence in the Indian Restaurant category four years in a row from 2018 to 2022, Delhi ‘O’ Delhi was also the winner of the IABCA Tourism, Hospitality & Catering Award in 2021.
