Baan Thai
Price: Rs1600. Beer: Rs275
Baan Thai offers exquisite Thai cuisine– some of the best in Delhi – served in fashionable surroundings. The ingredients are fresh and the sauces light yet pungent. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes offer diners the customary favorites, including papaya salad, spring rolls, crisp vegetables, mushroom cake, fish cakes, tofu, satay and prawn sticks. Diners at this restaurant in The Oberoi hotel sit on the floor with their feet in a pit under the table. There are, however, standard tables and chairs for the less adventurous.

Marsala Art
Price: Rs1300. Beer: Rs270
The joy of the new Marsala Art in the Taj Palace Hotel is the ‘Instant Sketches’ menu, the soi disant ‘interactive’ Indian eating experience. customers sit at a bar, behind where the chefs cook. There are three set menus– seafood, vegetarian and non-vegetarian – each with ten small dishes. Diner and chef can discuss the courses as they are served. The dining room is modern and simple, the food delicious.
