Needless to say the SE Asian menu is as per the high quality expectations. The food is fresh, light and a riot of subtle flavours. If in Delhi, this is a... More

I have a fondness for The Imperial hotel in New Delhi, dating back to when I first stayed there in 1983. At that time, the majestic 1930's hotel was grand, but tatty from decades of wear. Still, it charmed me silly. Today Today The Imperial is splendidly restored to such a degree that I found myself laughing out loud as... More

I had a dinner with Business partner in UK. As the location is center of New Delhi, the budget is almost double compaired with south Delhy. Appetizer and Main was so so. Sula red wine was incredible. Mango icecream was fantastic. Irish Coffee made in line with our request was perfect! Wonderful dinner!

To celebrate my birthday, my wife and son booked this restaurant for me during our recent stay in New Delhi. Quite aside from the fact that it is housed in probably best hotel in town, namely the Imperial, we were bowled over by the effusive welcome and attentive staff. One of the Duty Managers took the time to explain the... More
