Quote: Chinese food has been, for several decades now, a big hit in Delhi. Over the past few years, other cuisines from Eastern Asia—all the way from Japanese to Korean, Vietnamese to Thai and Indonesian—have also become popular. Some reviews of assorted Oriental restaurants in Delhi.

Asian Faire Culinaire

Restaurant | "Surprisingly good Thai food"

Asian Faire Culinaire Photo, New Delhi, India
Quote:
Culinaire is a somewhat unusual restaurant for Delhi, in that it is doesn’t have any indoor seating (in fact, whatever seating it does have consists of white plastic chairs and tables), but it does have printed, faux leather-bound menus. It has waitresses (unusual for a Delhi restaurant that’s out in the open). It is patronized by everybody from students to people who come by, park their cars nearby, and alight to sit on those plastic chairs. It serves Thai food—using a good deal of imported ingredients—and it’s pretty affordable.We’d been hearing praises of Culinaire for a while now, so figured it was time to go and check it out for ourselves. Culinaire’s ‘indoor’ area consists of the small kitche...Read More

Chinese has been one of Delhi’s favourite foreign cuisines for decades now, to be joined in the recent past by other Oriental cuisines: Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian, Japanese, and more. Discovering that Greater Kailash – II’s M Block Market had recently become home to a multicuisine Oriental restaurant, we decided to go check it out. Ahoy! Asia sits pretty much at the front of the market, between two more landmark eateries—the Italian fine dining restaurant Diva on one side, and Chocolateria San Churro on the ot...Read More

Restaurant | "Delhi’s oldest standalone Japanese restaurant?"

Quote:
With the growing influx of Japanese expats, Japanese cuisine is suddenly beginning to get popular in Delhi. Izakaya was the first one we ate at; then, a few months back, Sakae Sushi opened. There are Japanese restaurants in luxury hotels, and there are sushi takeaway joints like Sushiya. When somebody mentioned Tamura as being the place in Delhi for sushi, my husband and I decided to go t...Read More

Restaurant | "Playful, fun Oriental food"

Mamagoto—which today has several outlets in Delhi (including one each at Khan Market and the DLF Promenade Mall in Vasant Kunj) first opened at the Select CityWalk Mall in Saket. We visit the mall fairly frequently on weekends, to combine shopping with a film and a meal, and our first sight of the restaurant had us intrigued.On the outside (and the inside, too, actually), Mamagoto looks stylishly wacky. The wall facing the corridor outside is painted bright yellow, with TV-shaped windows in different sizes piercing the wall. There are doodles in black and white, crazy little drawings against which lots of people like to get friends to photograph them. On the side, the walls are covered with equally...Read More

One of India’s most famous chefs (and, arguably, the best-known woman chef), Ritu Dalmia has a clutch of extremely popular restaurants scattered across Delhi. There’s the flagship Diva, which serves some of the best Italian food in town; Café Diva; Diva Piccola; and Latitude—the latter three not as upscale or expensive as Diva, but serving an equally delicious range of dishes.W...Read More
