Mistral

European, North Indian, Iranian An extremely pleasant blend between an informal mall restaurant and a well-appointed fine-dining space An extensive western section, a patisserie counter just outside, a small Indian section – there really is something for everybody here The one restaurant in this mall to bring in a touch of class. Mistral is classy…

Indian Accent

The Manor in Friends Colony West is buzzing nowadays. Deservedly so: after a long time it has acquired F & B that is worthy of its classy interiors. Indian Accent may be new to the city, but it is the country cousin of Delhi’s Oriental Octopus and Chor Bizarre as well as Tamarai in London.…

Smokehouse Room

In the bright firmament of the restaurant scene in our city, there’s a brand new star and that is Smoke House Room. It sounds like a cliché to claim that it is a never seen before concept, but that really is the case. It is a small dining room – a 40 seater to be…

Chaobella

Given Delhi’s predilection for Italian and Chinese food, it was only a matter of time that someone opened up a single restaurant serving both cuisines. The brand new Crowne Plaza Today Okhla (not to be confused with the similar sounding hotel in New Friends Colony) has done just that. Chao is the Chinese half of…

Dimsumbros

I may not be a fan of Yo China: it is a project that has outlived its use and hardly caters to the tastes (and price points) of today. The latest offering from the same stable is dimsumbros. and THAT is something that is all set to rock the NCR. A single restaurant has cleverly…

Emperor’s Kitchen

First the good news. Emperor’s Kitchen has an enviable location. It’s in the middle of Style Mile; being behind a major bus stop, it has much more parking than any restaurant in the vicinity. It has well-appointed interiors, a terrace with a dream view of the Qutab Minar, a part-Chinese part-Thai menu – two of…

Fu – Better Than Chinese

If you are in the Greater Kailash area, are hungry and don’t want to spend a bomb on a meal, where should you go? Try Fu. It’s right in the M Block Market – an area which  certainly deserves a newer, fresher crop of restaurants. And the prices are so low that you’ll wonder if…

Infusion

These days, whoever wants to set up an Indian restaurant does so with a twist: traditional Indian food appears to have gone out of vogue. Infusion (short form for Indian fusion) also have a point of view, but they’ve done their menu leaving choices for lovers of straight Indian food too, albeit with nouvelle presentations.…

Izakaya

DLF Promenade is fast becoming known as the restaurant mall, and not without reason. Besides a fast food counter on the ground floor and a food court, there is an endless row of restaurants on the 2nd floor, with more being added even now. The general level of restaurants is fairly high and the concepts…

Konomi

Konomi, the month-old Japanese restaurant in Gurgaon’s Trident Hilton has the wow factor, in spite of being only 25 covers large. It is the only place in the country that actually serves the hideously expensive fresh wasabi. What is more is that the root is grated at your table, as many times as you require,…
