Traveler reviews

I had a lovely time with Kashyap and his family. Among other things we ate shami kebabs, paneer, Indian (chicken) sausages, chicken in a delicious masala and lamb (mutton) korma and a delicious lentil dish. It all looked so easy, but I can't imagine it will be that delicious when I try to cook it for my wife when I get home! I would also point out that the directions that Kashyap gave were perfect. Its not easy to find anything at all in Delhi, but I was able to find my way straight to the correct address with the directions I was given. I would recommend this to anyone.

Wonderful hosts. Had good conversations and a very good meal. They went out of their way to be gracious.

We had a delightful evening with our hosts Kashyap and his wife Chumki. They served us authentic north Indian food. Both the starters and the main course served was fantastic! It was obvious to me that they had taken special care and paid a lot of attention to what was served to us. We really appreciated the warmth extended to us over the evening. Thank you, it was a remarkable experience!

Kashyap and Chumki were unreal. Warm, funny, charming, hospitable, entertaining, wordly, food-obsessed...can they be my parents?!!? Our group of five (from the US, Brazil, Canada, Mexico) was delighted with the entire experience. We laughed, learned about authentic Bengali cooking, and were treated very well. The couple was very accommodating to our various dietary restrictions and requests (they were even up to the challenge of teaching us butter chicken...without dairy :) Their home was lovely and inviting. We left with our bellies full, our minds expanded, and some great Delhi eating tips from our hosts.

We had a wonderful time in Kashyap's home learning about Indian cuisine, cooking, as well as conversing about life in Delhi. The cooking demonstration was great and we were able to learn more about spices used and typical ingredients used in Indian cuisine. Thank you Kashyap and your family for such a good time! All around a pleasurable experience that we would highly recommend!

FAQ

    You can cancel your experience 48 hours or more before your experience date and receive a full refund. To request a cancellation once you have made a booking simply log in and click the "Request Cancellation" link from the bottom of your booking. Your refund will be processed immediately (note it can take up to 10 business days for this refund to post to your credit card statement). Please note that for cancellations within 48 hours of your experience we unfortunately cannot offer a refund; this is because our hosts typically purchase food and begin their preparations up to 48 hours before the experience.

    Most of our hosts are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free options. For vegetarian travelers, we have an icon on each host profile to indicate whether that host can also offer a fully vegetarian menu. There is a section in the booking form to note any allergies or dietary restrictions which will be sent directly to your host.

    If you have a question about an experience, create a reservation and include your note in the field "Write a note to your host". Once you request a booking you can continue to message your host directly to ask any specific questions. You can always cancel your booking and receive a full refund as long as you cancel 48 hours in advance.

    Your card will not be charged until your host accepts your booking. Typically hosts respond to bookings within 72 hours. In the event your host is unavailable on your selected date and your host rejects your booking your credit card will not be charged.

    Your host's detailed contact information, including their phone number, address, and direction notes, will all be provided immediately upon successful confirmation of your experience (after your hosts accepts your booking and your credit card is successfully processed). This information will be emailed to you to the email address you used to sign up, and will also be visible on your Traveling Spoon profile.

    All prices are noted per person prices unless otherwise specified. Transportation is typically charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person. Children aged 5-11 are 50% off, and infants aged 0-4 are free.

    Some hosts offer alcohol as an optional add-on for travelers who are of legal drinking age. Pricing for alcohol is visible on the host profile page and includes one to two glasses of wine, beer or local alcohol.

    Some hosts offer transportation as an optional add-on for travelers. Typically this is round trip transportation with pick up and drop off at your hotel. Pricing is quoted per car. Specific instructions for transportation will be provided in your confirmation details when your booking is confirmed.

    Many of our hosts accommodate solo travelers. You can see if a host accepts solo travelers by looking at the traveler range found next to the experience descriptions on the host profile (indicated by the numbers in parentheses next to "In-home meal", "Cooking experience" and "Market visit").

    Your safety and security are our top priority. To ensure this, Traveling Spoon personally vets 100% of all hosts, including an in-person host visit, to ensure each host and experience meets our strict quality requirements.

    Hosts typically respond to booking inquiries within 72 hours. If for some reason you have not heard from your host or if you have any questions you can always contact us at reservations@travelingspoon.com.
