Old Delhi Indian Street Food?

Has anyone tried this? Any good? Highly appealing that everything's under $10.00, but I don't want to find awful food for that price either-

Thank you!

    Ate there for lunch today: delicious samosa and good aloo papri chaat. Based on the quality of the samosa, would go for samosa chaat on my next visit.

      Funny, I just saw a blurb about this spot today and looked at their website. It appears like a great option. We like Bhalti Grill, the other spot these owners have. Will have to try it soon.

              I ate lunch there today. This is possibly the worst-designed restaurant I've ever been to.

              That said, bhel puri, samosa chaat, chole kulchi, and the kashmiri chicken roll were all really good (fyi, that's WAY too much food for two people, and I'll be eating chickpeas for breakfast). The masala chai is not masala. Highly recommend.

                I stopped by for a quick snack. Like Francesb says, this is a hole-in-the-wall, though it was no different when they were a kabab shop. Their publicist has done a very fine job hyping this place -- I was almost under the impression that this was a new 50-seater rather than a refab of a shop I once knew. That said, their samosas are tasty; the spicing is different than what I'm used to, though the dough was a bit soft, which was also a problem with the onion bhaji. This is fast food, so I would've been pleasantly surprised if they fried their food to order, but one can always hope. I'll have to go back to try some rolls, but so far I think this may end up being one of the better kabab shops on the block.

          Headed there today with high hopes for the pani puri.
