Don’t be fooled by the minimalist aesthetic of the interior. While the colour palate is mostly cream and brown with abstract paintings and copper lampshades, the décor is very intentional to ensure your full attention is directed to the gastronomic journey that lies ahead.
It’s a trendy, dramatic way to dine. Using the molecular technique that made Heston Blumenthal famous, even Indian street foods like chaat are excitingly transformed, with the use of liquid nitrogen, among other elements.
It’s no secret that people eat with their eyes first and this tops the charts. Every single dish is a work of art (no mean feat when many of them are created tableside right in front of you), enticing the senses in a fully immersive experience.
Enjoy the quirks. The wild mushroom ‘chai’ uses truffle powder in place of milk and comes served in a teapot before being poured into miniature cups. It’s a very novel way to enjoy a soup course!
Indian desserts have a reputation for being a weighty affair, but not here. From the pillowy soft daulat ki chaat with a texture that’s somewhere between a cloud and a snowflake, to the more western classic of black forest cake that’s served up in deconstructed form and big enough to share, don’t be scared to end the meal on a sweet note – you’ll regret it if you don’t!
