Looking for a place that serves the best meals? Check our residences in Dehradun.

Y Cafe & Restaurant, Karanpur

To start off with the list, we have Y Cafe & Restaurant. One of the top 10 restaurants in Dehradun without a doubt. The food will first work its magic in your mouth, then it’ll remain on your mind for the rest of the week (or month). Plus, their walls are filled with poems and inspirational quotes. Which might also remind you of your slam books from 7th grade. But trust us, it’s way less cheesier than that.

Must try:Lasagna, and Blueberry Smoothie

Location:Hotel White House, Behind St. Joseph’s Academy, Subhash Road, Karanpur, Dehradun

Timings: 11 AM – 10 PM

Cost for Two: ₹500 INR

Flavours, Patel Nagar

Flavours in Patel Nagar is all about lip-smacking Indian gravies and, well, mind-boggling flavours. Perfect for people who, after dissecting the whole menu, always end up ordering butter chicken (with loads of naans). Basically, this is like a Dhaba but with better crockery and without that dodgy mint chutney and sliced onions.

Must try:Paneer Pasanda, and Chicken Lababdar

Location:Hotel Doon Castle, Patel Nagar, Opp. Telephone Exchange, Saharanpur Road, Kaonli, Dehradun

Timings: 8 AM – 11 PM

Cost for Two: 800 INR

Black Pepper, Irrigation Colony

The most interesting thing about the Black Pepper (well, apart from its menu) is the interiors. The ceiling is shaped and textured like a cave. Yup, a cave. And don’t worry, the food isn’t cooked by someone as sloppy as Fred Flintstone, but by top-class chefs. The kind that makes your taste buds go ‘yabba dabba doo!’ with every bite.

Must try:Paneer Butter Masala, and Butter Chicken

Location:3, Astley Hall, Rajpur Road, Rajpur, Dehradun

Timings: 11 AM – 11 PM

Cost for Two: ₹1,000 INR

Moti Mahal, Ghanta Ghar

Like every other ‘Mahal’, Moti Mahal is quite old. In fact, it’s one of the country’s oldest retro-chains. And for good reason. The menu still trends in every foodie’s bucket list who visits Dehradun. The only other thing that’s as old – and as trending in the hill town – are Indian parents trying to admit their kids into Doon school. So imagine.

Must try: Golden Fried Prawns

Location:7, Ghanta Ghar, Rajpur Road, Race Course, Dehradun

Timings: 10 AM – 10.30 PM

Cost for Two: ₹1000 INR

Mussoorie Lights, Chukkuwala

Believe it or not, Mussoorie lights are not located in Mussoorie, but in Dehradun. But jokes aside, it easily falls under the best restaurants in Dehradun. Plus, you’ll also be mesmerized by their open-air seating with a view of the mountains. So yup, they might have got their name wrong, but when it comes to the vibe, they’ve sort of nailed it.

Must try: Paneer Tikka, Stuffed Mushroom

Location: Hotel Park View Premium, 17 Rajpur Road. Opposite Gandhi Park, Chukkuwala, Dehradun

Timings: 9 AM – 1 AM

Cost for Two: 1,500 INR

Punjab Restaurant, Patel Market

The Punjab restaurant Dehradun is mad popular. And why not? It has everything you’d expect in a Punjabi restaurant. And nope, we’re not only talking about dal makhani. But a whole wide menu of north Indian flavours with an exciting twist to it. How exciting? Well, as much as the impact of a Diljit Dosanjh number in a house party.

Must try: Chicken Dim Sum, Dal Makhani

Location: 1, Patel Market, Clock Tower, Rajpur Road, Race Course, Dehradun

Timings: 11 AM – 11 PM

Cost for Two: 700 INR

Orchard Dhakpatti

It’s not every day that you will find a restaurant as scenic as the Orchard. It’s located on a mountain cliff and a river flowing just 150 meters below it. On top of it, it features authentic Thai and Tibetan cuisines to complement the view. Basically, eating here feels like you’re staring at your desktop wallpaper, but without your Spotify playlist playing in the back. Instead, you’ve got the sounds of a gushing river to provide the background score.

Must try: Seasoned Chicken, Pad Thai Noodles

Location:3-D, Dak Patti, Near Mdda Park, Rajpur, Dehradun

Timings: 12.30 PM – 10 PM

Cost for Two: 800 INR

Muse Dobhalwala

The Muse is one of the best fine-dining restaurants in Dehradun. Probably why it’s always filled with a bustling crowd. And all thanks to their delicious pasta, there’s another one waiting in line. So you might have to book well in advance. Actually, this is the most exciting we’ve been for something Italian yet authentically Indian, after ‘Lamberghini’ by Doorbeen.

Must try:Pollo Juicy Lucy, and Red Thai Curry

Location: Hotel Inderlok, 29, Rajpur Road, Chukkuwala, Dehradun

Timings: 12 PM – 12 AM

Cost for Two: 1,000 INR

Prez Restaurant, Karanpur

The Prez Restaurant is one of the best dining experiences that Dehradun has to offer. The star of their menu is the Mutton Rogan Josh. And that’s just one of the reasons why you should visit this place. Because like their choice of menu, the decor is suave and super clean too. Or you could say, everything here just feels ‘prez-tigious’.

Must try: Mutton Rogan Josh, and Butter Chicken

Location:Hotel President, 6, Astley Hall, Rajpur Road, Karanpur, Dehradun

Timings: 8 am to 3 pm, and 7 pm to 11 pm

Cost for Two: 800 INR

Aerodine Restaurant, Jogiwala

Aerodine Restaurant Dehradun is a top notch fine-dining experience. We’ve heard they’ve got some quality chefs serving you the best of their culinary skills. And on top of their brilliant food, the presentations look pretty dope too. Somewhat like the dishes served at a Masterchef episode. No kidding.

Must try: Burger, Caesar Salad

Location: Mokhampur, Haridwar Road, Opposite IIp Gate, Jogiwala, Dehradun

Timings: 11 AM – 10.30 PM

Cost for Two: 950 INR
