Wasabi By Morimoto #1

Celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto and the Taj group have collaborated to set up this restaurant.

So, while the entire vegetarian menu has been done by the Taj, most of the menu consists of flourishes...more»

Dum Pukht #4

One of the finest restaurants of its kind in the country. Its new look goes well with the new menu: Both appear on the surface to have the patina of age, yet both conceal a surprisingly nouvelle touch. It shows in the decor that uses elements of mirror work on the arches and walls. The modern face of the food lies in the generous offerings for vege...more»

Diva The Italian #5

Diva keeps reinventing itself from time to time. The ground floor has now become a café like the one in GK I N-Block Market. This Diva café serves only Italian fare. It has a wood-fired pizza oven which does double duty for several dishes. Beetroot Carpaccio with Sesame Crusted Goat Cheese and Spaghetti with Seafood, Cherry Tomatoes and White Win...more»

Oh! Calcutta #6

The concept of selling Bengali food to Punjabis seemed ludicrous, until Oh! Calcutta came into being. The restaurant celebrates Bengali food and pays homage to its roots, albeit with a twist. The décor remind you of an old-fashioned Calcutta club, serving everything — Bangla Ranna, Raj cuisine and Muslim signature dishes. Even if you dislike Ben...more»

Cafe Diva #7

A name to reckon with in the culinary circles, Ritu Dalmia’s elegant trattoria with its own deli counter selling ingredients from the menu (ravioli, pesto, tsasiki and ciabatta) is polished space which makes it hard to believe you are in the middle of Delhi. An open kitchen, dark-glass shelves displaying olive oils, ingredients for cooking an Ita...more»

56 Ristorante Italiano #8

This restaurant aspires to great heights and the 56-foot-high (that’s the reported height!) ceiling is an indicator of this. Yet the best part of the restaurant is not its stylishness but Tiziano Ranieri, the Italian chef who presides over it. You’ll get Saltimbocca here and simple dishes cooked to perfection, from the south of Italy from where...more»

Diya #9

With an executive chef who is now a renowned television figure, Diya goes from strength to strength. They have a seasonal menu, so in the winter it could be Saag Meat and Sigri Kebabs. Gosht Seekh Husanara is an interesting take on a seekh kebab, with a coating of roasted almonds; a smoked silk thread is used to drop the kebab onto your plate. The ...more»

Indian Accent #10

They said that there is nothing new that can be done with Indian food, that even the most discerning diners will not appreciate modern twists to traditional recipes. Indian Accent proved them wrong, and how. There is no competition to this restaurant really, in the city or anywhere else. Chef Manish Mehrotra runs a tight ship, ensuring that quality...more»
