What the travellers have to say!



Amazing food / unconventional presentation and varied flavours”: It’s a small little restaurant tucked into a quiet corner in Delhi's Manor Hotel. The Chef Shantanu Mehrotra was a delight to talk to, He met us and checked our likes and dislikes. We ordered the fixed menu. The first thing that strikes you is the food presentation. It is unconventional to say the least! Minni blue cheese naans to Duck cornetto to carrot soup and pork ribs all were well made, flavourful and experimental. The chuski served in a miniature pressure cooker (see pic) gave us a much needed break from eating before the main course. The main course of Lamb shank was awesome and the choice of house wines was good with Sanag torres red and a savignon blanc from New Zealand. The servers were smart professional and very helpful. Overall a very good experience. Reviewed by a TripAdvisor traveller from New Delhi, India.



OMG! One of the Best!!!”: Where do I begin??! Peshawri is one of my MUST-GO places whenever I’m in Mumbai. No trip of mine to this wonderful city is complete without at least 1 visit. The food is 'to-die-for' and the service is pretty good too. Authentic north Indian cuisine. If you are a large group try the big Peshawri naan. Also recommend the mixed platter as a starter and of course the mandatory paneer dish in the main course! Don’t miss this if in Mumbai!!! Reviewed by a TripAdvisor traveller from Dubai, UA.E



Amazing Experience”: This place was recommended to me as THE place in New Delhi to eat. As I live in London, I like to think I'm pretty discerning when it comes to Indian cuisine - and this place lived up to its reputation. They have a great menu for single diners that allows you to try a bit of everything. My favourite dishes were the dal and the butter naan. Special thanks to my waiter Praveen who provided truly excellent recommendations, as well as flawless and friendly service. Reviewed by a TripAdvisor traveller from Toronto, Canada.
