It has a huge collection of typical Indian spices decorated in the center of the restaurant. These spices are the main ingredients and bring life to Indian food.
We were welcomed by extremely generous and humble staff at the reception, who escorted us to the bar. On the left side of the restaurant, there’s a bar famous for its Cocktails.
The manager explained the range of drinks and cocktails they were offering. We ordered a Strawberry Colada, which was served with fresh strawberry ice cream and mint water to enhance the real taste of the drink.
After the drinks, we went to the main restaurant. The manager welcomed us and brought the jag, and put the liquid neon. The liquid nitrogen raised the steam with a refreshing aroma, and it helped to freshen the body and mind.
After that Aromatic refreshing therapy, the chef served the box, which has four small sections. Each section had different starters like Gol Gappay, Fried lady finger, Vegetable Sushi, and Vegetable Pie.
The best thing about the restaurant was that the chef explained all the starters and their specialties.

After a few minutes, the chef, along with its trolley, came near to my table. OMG – THIS WAS SOMETHING REALLY AWESOME. The chef prepared the Signature Butter pepper Garlic Prawns right in front of us. It was a very interactive cooking. The chef explained the whole cooking steps.

The next innovation was Tandoori Chicken with Pineapple Carpaccio. The Chef again came with his trolley. He had a chicken with chili paste which was already baked in tandoor (a traditional way of cooking). He gave a charcoal smoke to the wrapped chicken and pineapple and spread green chili and olive sauce.
The tandoori chicken with pineapple carpaccio with green sauce was ready to be served. The taste of charcoal made it the best tandoori chicken.
The next starter was Wagyu Satay. Wagyu Satay had served with peanut curry, burnt chili, and eggplant pickle. We heard a lot about this dish from my Indian friends, but this was the first time we tried it.
The meat was very tender, with the perfection of sauces and spices. You have to try it.
Then, our favorite Kebab Roll was served. Actually, it was a long kebab covered with the typical Indian thin dough and red spicy avocado sauce. The combination of meat kebabs with these sauces made it the best starter of the evening.
Here comes another innovation in traditional food. The waiter served us Blue Berries in a small Japanese lime tree with aromatic neon that helped to refresh the mind.
We also got an opportunity to go into their kitchen and meet their Master Chef, Mr. Himanshu Saini. It was such a wonderful experience watching the chef cook live food for the guests.

He put the Caramel White Chocolate base and then added Chocolate cheese to it. Then, he put Ras Gullay (traditional Indian Sweet) and then Saffron Rabri followed by Strawberry circled wire on the top. He sprinkled strawberry rust and Pistachio. And For the last ingredient, he used liquid nitrogen to reduce the temperature of the rose.
After a few seconds, the rose was frozen, and then he sprinkled the rose petals on the pastry. The chef innovated a new dessert by mixing the traditional sweets of India with French-style pastry. This pastry was a fusion of French and Indian sweets.
The Chef presented another typical dessert called “Daulat ki Chaat” from the Chandni Chowk area in the Capital city of Delhi. It had served with a crumble called “Soan Papdi,” and it was decorated with Gold dust and Pistachio.
