Clean, green, exciting and always ready for a party, Hauz Khas in South Delhi is a wonderful neighborhood to be a part of. A little on the expensive side but living here is equal to a lot of convenience!
Hauz Khas has a lot of hidden away eating spaces in the nooks and corners of it. If one is not in the mood for being a detective (which is totally going to be worth it, by the way), HK also has the greatest dining spaces lined up in Hauz Khas Village. All the rage is enlivened in cafés like Kunzum Traveler’s Café, bars like Social and dining areas like Imperfecto! There are a lot of roadside momo walas as well, which have great great momos! Remember to ask for the mayo!
I'm a second year History student at St. Stephen's College, Delhi University who's been living here for 16 years. I love reading, painting, photography, sleeping and travelling. Oh and eating. A lot.
The New Jersey that became Manhattan.
It's very well-connected, easily accessible, well-populated so not shady or dingy at night. It's definitely secure; several gated complexes, it's a market hub so there are people around all the time. There's a school nearby, it's right next to places of social interest - Aurobindo, Saket, Hauz Khas Village. It's scenic, dotted with the occasional monument or two and caters to people from all walks of life.
Well, it will eventually become a massive hub with the Pink Line joining the Yellow Line metro at Hauz Khas metro station; this means way more people that it can actually accommodate. But the Hauz Khas Metro is a lifesaver and you have two major bus-stops and several taxi-stands. Also, autos ply very very frequently.
You also have the classic Evergreen-style eatouts in Green Park, dotted with the regular McD's and Dominos. Then Hauz Khas Village has its own lifestyle with the avant-garde eateries and quaint hangouts like Elma's, OTB, Kunzum, Naivedyam, Amici etc.
