The Roseate, New Delhi is certainly one of the luxurious property in Delhi/NCR. It has a breathtaking view, lush green which makes this resort world class. The moment you get inside you realize that you are in the lap of nature and get carried away – the reaction is WOW!.
They have Kiyan – the all-day dining and Chi Ni – the fine dine Chinese specialty restaurant. Executive Chef Nishant Choubey who is now corporate chef and Executive Pastry Chef Anand Panwar have worked pretty hard to convert this place into one of the finest dining place in the city.
I have been here multiple times, yet, each time I feel majestic. The service standard here is truly world class and can be compared to any world class luxury place as they excel in hospitality and service. Right from receiving guest at the porch, escorting them to their destination – their courteous staff – it makes you feel like a Maharaja!
I was here for their month long Thai food festival prepared by their master Thai chef Joy.
Our culinary journey began with Amuse-bouche, Miang Kham roasted piece of coconut, peanuts and chopped green chillis with a hint of lemon and galangal on a lotus petal which gave us the glimpse of what is going to come to our table. Pomelo salad and pandan leaf chicken are one of the most popular appetizers in South East Asian countries. I enjoyed these dishes.
I personally loved the pineapple rice that was served with Thai chicken green curry – the classic Thai curry along with Thai duck red curry. The red curry pineapple with New Zealand mussels bowled me over. It had a hint of sweetness and balance of spiciness that went absolutely well with basil fried rice.
Thai meal is incomplete without tub tim krob which is made of cubes of water chestnuts in syrup coated with red rubies and coconut milk and mango sticky rice. It becomes more important when you have Anand Panwar’s expertise. The mango sticky rice was absolutely delicious and had an excellent balance of sweet and salt. Tum tim krob is a dessert that I love to enjoy multiple servings as it so fresh and delicious. Chef Joy was gracious enough to repeat my dessert.
Kiyan is a destination and The Roseate is the perfect place to indulge in luxury. This festival is on till 30th of June.
