"Lacklustre & Inconvenient Location"

This is a street that is just an eyesore. Worst is that it's nowhere near the golden triangle (or golden mile) of Bentleigh houses. Try not to buy anything on this street as the location is probably one of the worst in Bentleigh.
Pros
  • Nothing good here
Cons
  • Streetscape is just ultra bad
  • Creepy people living here

"Short Street - Nothing Special"

Agree with most reviewers. Thank God I'm on London Street, but still, there are good parts of London and not so good parts of London. I have lived here for over 20 years and well, I used to cycle around the area and along Delhi St. This is one of the streets that would give me a tingle down my spine every time I cycle here. It's like one of those streets in a serial killer movie or a supernatural movie or a movie where people get abducted. I cannot pin point this but it has a strange dark energy to it. Just one street away, London St is ok. Feels good and has a good vibe. Auckland is fairly alright. Montreal, yeah alright. Durban is not really my cup of tea. Then you have Delhi, a strange looking short street and connects 4 other streets.
Pros
  • Nothing good here
Cons
  • Don't walk or cycle here at night....
  • Creepy people living here
  • Ugly street frontage

"Lacking Character, Kind of Gloomy Street"

I live on Patterson just a short walk to Delhi. It's a dead quiet nook that's not very well lit. Several times, I see dodgy bad tempered neighbours shouting at one another. Not sure why but it's none of my business. This street just does not give me a homely feel. It's a street that's on the depressing side. I am not saying that Patterson Road is that good, yes I know at least 3 neighbours who have sold and moved out of Bentleigh for obvious reasons. But yeah, Delhi and the surrounding streets has a pretty sad vibe. Drive past one day and decide for yourself. Oh, and this part of Bentleigh is quite far from the action (not that there's a lot of action in Bentleigh). Yawn...
Pros
  • Nothing good here
Cons
  • Depressing pocket
  • Lacking warmth and character
  • Vanilla?
  • Unsafe area with some abusive neighbours
  • Streetscape is just ultra bad

"The Brooklyn of Bentleigh"

RIghto, what more can I say. My Grandpa lives here and this must be one of the worst roads in Bentleigh. It's a very short street and it basically does not have street appeal. Well, most short streets don't have appeal because it does not have sufficient length for perspective and panaroma. The new houses being built here are also out of sync with existing houses in terms of look and feel. Most people who live on this street, including Grandpa are on a pension. They cannot even afford to sell and buy back in the area because prices have just gone way above the rational affordability threshold.
As for safety, Grandpa's house was broken into 3 time over the last 10 years. He's also been mugged whilst taking a walk along Delhi Street and his neighbour at the back is a little psychotic. The man would be shouting and yelling and slamming the shed door for no apparent reason, at night, during the day and just random hours.
There are also not beautiful trees on Delhi Street plus the road itself is very bumpy. It's as if Vicroads or local council have decided to not pave the road because it's a bunch of pensioners and crazy people who live here.
Would I buy on Delhi Street? Of course not. This Street is very close to Bentleigh East and it's at the fringe of Bentleigh and as my title says, Delhi is the Brooklyn of Bentleigh. It's also pretty damn far from any civilised public transport to say the least. Why pay so much to live like a bogan on Delhi Street?
Final verdict, avoid buying anything on this street. Full stop.
Cons
  • Pensioners can de depressing
  • Streetscape is just ultra bad
  • Road hasn't been paved in ages, it's bumpy and just not nice to drive on
  • Creepy people living here
  • Ugly street frontage
  • Unsafe area with some abusive neighbours

"Possibly the Worst Street in Bentleigh"

I rented a room in an older house here and I found this street dark, way too quiet and very unsafe. There are some creepy and mentally unstable people living here. One afternoon, I bump into this man, a neighbour who was shouting obscenities and throwing objects at his wife in the garden. Another day, the neighbour 2 doors down was also yelling and cursing at something using C words and F words. Yes, there are some parts of Bentleigh which are good but please do not buy into houses on Delhi Street.
Also, it's a long walk to Patterson station, over 30 minutes and don't try to do that in Summer or Winter.
One final thing, I drove by to visit my former land lord the other day and he told me that there are some new builders who are building duplexes here. My landlord was a former builder and he checked out these new homes during construction stage. He has told me that builders these days just want to make houses look cosmetically good but they cut corners in the areas where you cannot see. So he spotted this development on Delhi Street and how the builder was cutting corners in quite a number of fundamental necessities that new home buyers will not realise.
As a good citizen, let the buyer beware of new townhouses being built on Delhi Street, Montreal Street, Patterson Road and London Street. When you think you are paying 1.4m for a top quality property, you are actually only getting an average 900k property that's overpriced. Don't say I don't warn you about new builders trying to make a quick buck in Bentleigh. Also, many new builders don't make it past 5 years so just becareful of the builders warranty. Insurance companies don't pay up if your builder disappears. They only pay if your builder has died or has filed for bankruptcy. I pity people who just buy houses because of a suburb and for cosmetic reasons, without knowing what is a good build vs a cover-up build.
Pros
  • Nothing good here
Cons
  • Creepy people living here
  • Ugly street frontage
  • Unsafe area with some abusive neighbours

JoannaM1 I cannot agree more with you. Delhi Street is one of the worst streets you could buy a house and live in it. Just a very unattractive streetscape and people who still live here are those that well, need some psychological assistance. Just do not take walks at night along Delhi Street.
