Indian Accent ~ New Delhi
Chef Manish Mehrotra's Contemporary Indian fine dining restaurant, located at The Manor in New Delhi, is undoubtedly one of the best in the country. I recently dined at the restaurant to celebrate my fifth wedding anniversary with a family dinner and the meal was nothing short of spectacular.
We were a group of six people, who have very different tastes that typically mull and argue before even selecting a restaurant. I can tell you one thing with confidence that this was a rare occasion that we were all in agreement and no one had a single complaint. The entire table was wowed in unison as each, pretty as a picture, dish was placed in front of us. My photographs don't do justice to the plating as they were captured in dim lighting plus I has mere seconds before someone's hand made it into the shot.
The best part of the meal is that the taste trumps the presentation. While it is a new take on Indian food, the contemporary twists and fusion don't feel forced on the palette. Each dish is well thought out and made with care. I would happily order each dish again, but if I had to select my absolute favourites, it would be the blue cheese naan and the chicken tacos. You must must must browse through the gallery below and be warned that you will be hungry after.
On my next visit (which I am sure there will be one), I am looking forward to trying the chef's menu. The restaurant has limited seating, so I highly recommend making a reservation in advance.
