Worldwide, the Shangri-La brand has a trademark style throughout its chain of hotels: a multiplicity of counters all serving their own distinctive cuisine. In a sense, it is the multicuisine of yore taken to the next level. Here, in Delhi, 19 Oriental Avenue serves Chinese, Japanese and Thai food, but far from being a mishmash, it is an extremely refined offering run by three separate chefs from each country. Opinions differ on which section is the best, and it is largely dependent on which chef is heading which counter at any given point of time. As a rule, all three counters are headed by expats from China, Japan and Thailand respectively though at the time of going to press, the current crop was yet to be hired. Do try the Beijing Duck here. The Thai counter does a mean Choo Chee Kung (chicken napped in red curry paste) and healthy, tasty Oriental salads.

A day before I had a meeting at 19 Oriental Avenue. I went there for the first time and found it quite good. The restaurant serves different cuisines from Chinese, Thai and Japanese. We ordered Beijing Duck, Choo Chee Kung and some salads. I liked the Choo Chee Kung most, the chicken was nicely napped with the red curry paste. It tastes awesome. I loved the ambiance as well. Just wishing for another meeting at 19 Oriental Avenue.
