Food was excellent, a friend had a fish and she just couldn't stop raving about it,me and another friend being a vegetarian ordered SriLankan Curry and Malabar Parathas.It was simply yummy.And we ordered a desert which had ice chunks floating in it,with chestnuts and coconut milk.Everything was extraordinary.

nothing really touched me, except for expected high price tag and atmospheric interior. hm, actually whole-grain paratha with ghee was very tasty. good place for business meetings.

This place is beautiful and lovely in every aspect, but the food was just alright. Not as spicy as perceived by the name. Enjoy.

This is probably the best restaurant in the world. Amazing Decor, out of this world finger licking food and amazing service with always smiling hosts. This is a must visit in Delhi. Strongly recommend for business or pleasure dinner meetings.

Restaurant decor was amazing - with artefacts, paintings, specially designed pillars, roofs which we were told took many years to complete. the service was outstanding and so was the food - we had Pad Thai, spring rolls and the salads. Portions were generous too. The only downside was the restaurant was a bit dark for lunch.
