There are few worse feelings than the exasperating craving for a wholesome meal late in the night. You curse yourself as you realize that most of your favourite joints will have shut shop for the day. Fortunately, some kind souls have taken it upon themselves to answer the call of all hungry Delhiites across town. If you find yourself in such a precarious situation, just head on over to one of the stand out hotels/restaurants that serve up some of the most scrumptious midnight buffets the city has to offer.

The typical Delhiite will surely crave a lip-smacking bowl of laal maas or a wholesome serving of Murg Makhai when he thinks of a filling midnight meal. If you find yourself in this category, you are probably already heading over to the Gulati Spice Baazar for their signature Mughlai three-course midnight buffet. Start your meal with some traditional kebabs and koftas and then move on to some more traditional biriyanis and curries. Dont forget to try out some of the desserts, which are definitely the highlight of the buffet; the firni is an unmissable dish for any first-time visitor.
S18 Radisson Blu @ Sector 18
S18 was known for being one of the first restaurants in Delhi to introduce the idea of fine-dining buffets. A visit to this place will not be light on your wallet, but you can be assured that the quality of food and service live up to the reputation. While they are famous for their choice and authentic Mediterranean cuisine, they also have a few well-prepared Indian classics, especially the dal makhni and paneer lababdar. Do give this place a visit the next time you find yourself at Sector 18 late in the night with a grumbling tummy.
The Pavilion ITC Maurya @ Sardar Patel Marg
When it comes to quality in terms of both service and cuisine, few establishments come close to the level of professionalism that The Pavilion strives to achieve. Located in the posh 5-star establishment of ITC Maurya, they have a surprisingly well-priced midnight buffet that is criminally under-visited. The spread is exceptionally extensive with a choice of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes including the Saag Gosht, Dum Murg, and variety of seafood dishes. The desserts do not disappoint either, with the blueberry cheesecake and rasmalai the few exceptional ones. Definitely a must visit for all Delhi-based foodies.
