The Potbelly has two outlets in Delhi and I dont think the owner is planning to expand soon. Reading the news articles related to The PotBelly concept, the outlet at Bihar Niwas is almost an extension. We visited their Chanakyapuri outlet more than a year back and had no hesitation in rating it one of the best restaurants in Delhi! Predictably so, The Potbelly at Chanakyapuri is better rated than the one at Shahpur Jat. But a trip to their main outlet was long pending with anticipation.
Salient Points about The Potbelly Rooftop Cafe, Shahpur Jat

Location of The Potbelly Rooftop Cafe, Shahpur Jat
There is a slight issue on Google Maps regarding the naming of the two outlets. While the one at Chanakyapuri is named by Google as the Rooftop when it is actually on the ground floor. And at Shahpur Jat it is named the other way round. I have given an edit for the same to Google, but its editors are simply not relenting.
So just search for The Potbelly, Shahpur Jat and you are good to go.
The Potbelly is located at one of the best locations in Delhi. Shahpur Jat is a startup wonder, the hub of entrepreneurs. To have a wonderful cafe in the middle of all this is an experience.

About the restaurant ambience
Great care has been taken to make diners feel at home. Space management is excellent. Each table has its own private space. And most tables have a good view of the greenery around. Away from the main seating is an outdoor seating. Enjoy the cool breeze. The place is good enough to visit any time of the day. The roof is done with wood work. This material is also a good sound absorber. Seats are wooden antiques and give a good overall look. But do check the flight of stairs to climb to reach the top.
About the food and service
The owner/promoter of both outlets has worked hard with Bihari Cuisine. Result is a set of wonderful dishes, tasty and original. One specialty of their cooking is consistency. Which is a reason of slightly high prices on the menu. Taste is exactly the same as their outlet at Bihar Niwas, Chanakyapuri. Food portions are just sufficient. The quality of chicken and mutton used is top notch and so are the ingredients. If you are in a group, order four to five dishes to cover a range. Since we are not familiar with Bihari cuisine, cant comment on the food. But whatever we ordered till now, at both places, food is perfect. Waiters are trained with the menu. If asked suggestions are also provided. Do not miss the various drink options in the menu.
