Imperial Spice at CP New Delhi is the latest entrant in the F&B scene. We were here for a lunch on hot and sultry Sunday of Delhi. But the moment we entered this fine dining joint, we were pleased and happy to have come here.
Nice décor, low lights, chandeliers, Laser cut metal patterns infused in Interiors; is eye pleasing. The reflections of the light in the glass panels on the shafts was creating a hypnotising ambainace. Located on the first floor, right in front of the famous Super Bazar, this is a super deluxe place. And I am sure they are going to rule the H&B industry scene in CP for a long time.
The menu is quite exhaustive and is primarily is epicurean cuisine. Loads of fusion experiments have been done with the food and desserts. What please me the most were the huge veggie options in the menu. Though on the drinks side there was not much for the teetotalers.
We tried the Orange Blossom but were disappointed. The Spicy Guava also failed to impress.
The Amuse Bouche, Masala Papad was amazing and I loved it. Gari Infused Mon chow soup followed, and it was spicy and the flavours of all the spices were great. The pickled ginger further enhanced the flavor.
Salad was artistically presented, it was the Silvanus, a salad platter; a mix of pomegranate, sundried tomatoes and celery. This fresh, healthy and crunchy salad was delicious.
Next on our tables was the twisted Paneer tikka; the Paan Paneer Tikka, one of the chef’s special. It was good, the paan leaves and the paan marination did the magic, and we could just say Wow as the tikkas vanished in our mouths.
Next we had Panko and Wasabi Mushroom. We really didn’t like this, it was spicy and tangy, but somehow it was quite bland for us to finish the dish.
Quinoa Broccoli ke Shammi followed up soon, nice presented and for tastes, it was just ok.
Now we turned our attention to the main course dishes which were already on out tables. We had Papad Mangory ki subzi, rich creamy Kofta curry, Dal Makhania, Soya Katori along with soft Naan and Veg Briyani.
The veggie Biryani and Papad Magory was the best in the main course section.
Off to my favourite section of a meal. Desserts – I was so happy to see three different desserts on my table. Chocolate Rabri, Gulab Jamun with custard and Lahsuni Kheer. The twist given to Gulab Jamun and Custard Pudding was very well done, and it really made a great dessert.
Imperial Slice is truly a fine dining place and I am sure everybody coming here for a meal wont go back unsatisfied. The presentations were artistic, food was delicious and desserts super. I am sure I am going to be back here again, but till that time – guys go ahead and try it out.
