From the moment you enter, everything tickles some or the other sense. To top it all, Chef Sahil Singh with Dildeep Kalra has worked relentlessly over the years to give you the perfect menu packed with innovation.
The meal started with Amuse Bouche, the palate cleanser, having compressed basil, Watermelon and Lemon grass, it teases you on what’s in store for you from the world of molecular gastronomy.
Next we ordered drinks like, Shikoku Cooler (Cocktail): It had a perfect blend of gin, Orange, Kaffir lime and peach puree. It was citrusy and quite refreshing for sure.
Hibisco Sour (Cocktail): This picture worthy cocktail was topped with purple Hibiscus flower, with a perfect concoction of Hibiscus, Vanilla and gin, Sour taste, with the refreshing flowery aroma, goes absolutely well with your meal.
Exotica (Mocktail): Perfect merger of Cranberry and Orange, served with mint leaves, which was topped with a dried Orange slice, quite invigorating for sure.
Valentine Roll: The heart shaped rolls, are stuffed with Tuna layer, covered with rice, again a tuna layer covered with crispy rice, topped with Mayonnaise. Break the heart into two and enjoy this delicacy.
Sushi Doughnut: The doughnut shaped Sushi had a crispy circular disc at the bottom, layered with Sushi rice, Salmon and Tuna, with hint a of Mayonnaise and black Tobika.
Yellow Tail, Raw Mango: From the modern Sushi section, Maki Roll stuffed with Hamchi and Cucumber inside, topped with raw mango relish, this was my personal favorite from the Sushi section, absolutely delectable.
Lamb and Mandarin, Bee Hun Dimsum: The translucent dimsums are stuffed with steam minced lamb infused with Mandarin, folded into a flower and topped with green peas, Pomegranate and beet.
Braised Lamb Chops: One of the best Lamb chops I have had so far, Lamb chops are tossed in sweet and sour black vinegar, served on a thick slice of Pineapple infused in vinegar. The lamb was so juicy, cooked to perfection and full of flavours. Highly recommended.
Sea Bass, Udon Pad See Eiu: The dish is served in a square plate which can be lit. The XnO type checks had steamed Chilean Seabass and Udon noodles on alternate grids, Rataoulie, crisp okra (Ladies fingers) in the centre. It’s delectable and wholesome.
Last from the desserts, we had the Chocolate Ball of Fire: Served in a chocolaty globe, which, when poured with chocolate syrup melts and reveals the vanilla ice cream, crunchy cookies and fudge at the bottom. On the sides you have Strawberries, Sour Berries and Plum.
