Shiro definitely has staying power, evident from the fact that it has persevered through new openings, closings and renovations of its neighbours without its clientele showing any signs of diminishing. A vibrant Oriental playhouse that traverses between a restaurant, a bar and a club post 10 pm, this one packs in a punch, so you'll be surrounded by an assortment of Delhi's social circuit at all times. Since late Saturday's mean queuing up and paying an entry fee, we suggest you get there early and start sampling out their cocktails. Our favourites include the refreshingly tall Tahiti Breeze and the smouldering Yamaguchi Sunset, while the Demerara Fig Mojito with figs soaked in spirits remains their most popular signature. There is also a well-stocked wine list as well as a varied (and expensive) range of sake by the bottle at the long bar, which stands underneath a giant DJ console that reveals itself in dramatic motion by emerging from a mirror ball. Theatrics aside, the music swings between dance, retro and commercial, but the food remains consistent with luscious slivers of sushi nigiri, translucent dim sums and the house special, Mahtani Chicken. This one is always bursting at the seams on weekends, so don't say we didn't warn you!

Food 3/5 | Décor: 3.5/5 | Service 3.5/5

-By Marryam H Reshii

Shiro is as theatrical as they come. The entrance gives the feel of entering the belly of a pirate ship and the restaurant itself is imposing with massive statues of Buddha everywhere. There is a separate bar and a Teppanyaki counter with an extremely talented chef. The menu is extensive and the Chili Garlic Prawns something that dreams are made of. The sushi is good enough. They have a fabulous deal on weekends where you can order unlimited food (and/ or drinks) from their menu for a fixed price. There is a concealed DJ console on the first floor and a dance floor too..

Elite club only for elite people that is how I want to explain this place. This is one of the best place I have visited so far in delhi , it has unique interior and DJ cabin. The only problem is it doesnt have a dedicated dance floor & this what I didnt like about this place being said that everything is expensive here but at the end it would be worth it.

Tips: Get a table reserved before going,Good place for couples,Has a dedicated smoking area

Most reviewers focus on both the place and the food when writing a review, ensuring that each has a small mention. At Shiro, both the food and the restaurant are such imposing entities on their own that they cannot do with just a small mention. As you walk into Shiro you know it is not your run of the mill restaurant. The contrast from Hotel Samrat is baffling - the sight is a rare thing. You walk into a three-tired 10,000 square feet restaurant designed to perfection. You can see lofty versions of taste in the form of Buddha statues imported from Indonesia. Who doesnt know Chef Vikas Khanna? Chef Khanna is an award winning Michelin Starred celebrity chef and restaurateur. We all know him from the famous TV Show MasterChef India. He is based in New York but belongs to Amritsar. Shiro provides a twist to their existent and much loved menu as they associate with the leading travel channel Fox Traveller for their show Twist of Taste hosted by Chef Khanna. Chef Khannas menu is legendary and should not be missed. The menu and the ambience makes Shiro not just a nice restaurant but an experience delivered through dishes which are sturdy, yet delicate; served on perfectly presented plates, in a high-ceilinged room with Zen-inspired interiors.To cook this sort of food, you have to know what youre doing. The Coconut and Lemongrass Soup with Rasam Powder (265) was surely the work of a master chef. I dont like coconut, I surely dont like the flavour of lemongrass and rasam is my least favourite South Indian concoction. How a mix of these three could be so silken and delicious was bewildering to me! The texture of the soup was perfect, it tasted delicious and was perfectly exquisite. Next on the list was Xacuti Masala Grilled Rice Paper Roll Chicken (430), it tasted like a lightly spiced salad which gave my palate a whole new experience. I went for a piece of the Vegetarian Dim Sum which gave its non-vegetarian cousin the Chicken Dim Sum a serious run for its money.And then there was the Steamed Fish with Malabar Curry Spices, served on a big Lotus Leaf. It costs 635 for two, but would serve three. The fish was served to us by the perfectly knowledgable serving staff who explained to us exactly what it contained. Finally, I dug in and it just melted in my mouth. The curry spice is known to be overpowering but the fish had still managed to keep its identity. There were other interesting things on the menu: Crispy Tofu with Tamarind Chutney (390), Tuna and Chicken Sushi - the best Tuna Sushi around, Panko Crusted Prawn Rawa Fry (535) in true coastal style. Only a Chef as great as one with a Michelin Star can make Tofu taste so divine. The main course Kerala Style Prawn Curry with Thai Red Curry Paste (720) went beautifully with Lemon Fried Rice with Peanuts (455). If I ever tried to make prawns as deliciously soft and delicate as this, my kitchen would be covered with inexplicable debris. I would be found weeping in a corner, covered in curry and paste (and I know I can cook!). The Prawns were a magnificent piece of work and were perfectly marinated with a flavourful and sweet thai red curry paste.They finally brought us all the desserts on the menu. We were lost in cream, chocolate and cheesecake. Consuming all those calories becomes our shared endeavour. The Mississippi Mud Pie, Trio of Cheesecakes, Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream, the chunky Chocolate Cheesecake with Ice Cream and finally a rich chocolate cake to celebrate the success of Shiro at Times Food Awards 2014. Shiro is the Best Bar with Dancing and Ive gotta visit Shiro on a weekend to check out the amazing wall that turns around and converts into a DJ Deck & Music Station - how fascinating!
