We visited this plush new hotel primarily for dinner at their restaurant, Xenia. Done mostly in purple, violet, white and silver hues, it gives a comtemporary look. The area is spacious and can seat about 60 people comfortably at one go. They also have a private party area, housed in the same restaurant but made prominent with a solid partition. I cudnt peep in there but again, that should accomodate 20-25 ppl easily.
Coming to the spread, it was good, if not extensive. Its a multi-cuisine restaurant and hence, you get plenty of options. Indian, Chinese, Thai and Italian cuisines are interspersed on the menu. And yes, lest you forget that you are dining in Odisha, you also find local delicacies on the menu... the one that caught my eye was the reverred "Chenna Podo" in the dessert section!! :) They serve alcohol too and their lounge, HI5, is just adjacent to Xenia.
We ordered grean peas soup which was good but could hv been better. For starters, the Vegetable Spring Rolls was lip-smacking! Generously-stuffed and carefully cooked, they were one of the best VSR I had in a long, long time! The kadai veg in the main course was good but the Thai Shredded Chicken was awesome! Loved every bit of it :)
The only flop side was the service of the restaurant staff. They were very courteous, no doubt but were tad too slow. A good restuarant doesnt keep their guests waiting for their first round of soup for 20 minutes! They can do well to imrpove.
Overall,a good restaurant in a beautiful hotel. Since it debuted in Dec, 2012, it still retains is fresh, new look. Worth stepping in!
A Meal for 2 (without alcohol) - INR 1000 (Veg) and INR 1500 (Non-veg).
