“Outstanding Asian Fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

I brought a Swedish colleague and his family to this restaurant. His wife commented that it was the best meal she had ever eaten!
I was privileged to visit the place prior to opening when selected guests were invited to review and comment on the food. The staff remembered me when I returned, and they commented that they had taken some of my suggestions.
The decor is truly a cut above what you encounter in Delhi normally. The selection on the menu is eclectic. Spicing is moderate; happily, this place has resisted the temptation to prepare everything with Indian masala.
If there's any drawback, it's the location, near a busy food court in a shopping mall. However, in my opinion, the place is worth that slight inconvenience.

“Must Try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010

We had lunch at their outlet in DLF saket .Really liked their partitioned seating areas with couches , perfect when you go in a small group.
Ambience is nice.Service was a little overbearing at the start(we were the only ones in) and we were kind of royally ignored after the main course(maybe because more people had come in by then).But in between was just perfect. Had a mix-up with the bill , we were presented the bill from the next table ,but was replaced once we pointed it out.(We should have just paid and sneaked out , cud have saved us a 1000 bucks) :-)

They give complimentary bottle of mineral water , nice try . Jasmine tea was served, was not really great ,forgot to check whether it was complimentary or not. The Virgin Mary we ordered , was just average.

That apart , the food was great.We ordered lamb with leeks and grilled fish(they had a special seafood menu , cant remember the name of the dish ) - the lamb was buttery soft , would love to know what they use for marinating and for how long.But the flavour felt more Indian than Chinese ,but great nonetheless.We were too full by then that we seriously doubted if we could eat any more.But eat we did. The main course was chicken in yellow bean sauce and butter garlic fried rice.The sauce was good ,but somehow the chicken pieces were a little hard.The fried rice was so good that we devoured it just like that.

Sadly we had no room for desserts.

The bill for two without alcohol and desserts came to 2500K.

As to their ad about authentic Chinese , I am not too sure.I have eaten a number of times at a Malaysian restaurant(in UAE) and the flavors were definitely different .

“decor and opulence abound but this food is what you would get anywhere in delhi today”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

good for a family dinner where the USP is the coming together of family or friends and not the food itself because food certainly wont hold your attention . So if you go looking to be surprised or expecting a gastronomic delight you would be in for a disappointment
