Guppy By Ai

India Today - - BUZZ -

If you go to a restau­rant and find the place abuzz with the chat­ter of happy din­ers, you know that you have picked the right place. That’s what we saw when we went to Guppy By Ai on a Wed­nes­day evening. The cheery space which seems in­spired by a cu­ri­ously artsy blend of anime- meets-origami- meets- indie. The de­sign dio­rama, cre­ated by An­shu Arora, is Ja­panese in spirit, but has been trans­formed into a post- mod­ern cre­ation of pa­per, fab­ric, ce­ramic and metal. Manga mu­rals, win­dow art and heartshaped tiles and origami- and- metal light fixtures fill up your senses even be­fore you take a bite. Our ad­vice: Think be­yond sushi when plac­ing an or­der. The spiced edamame and maki rolls are some of the best dishes on the menu. A hot favourite among din­ers is slow braised pork belly. With a per­fect fat-meat ra­tio the hours of slow cook­ing in soy, honey, all spice ends in the silki­est caramelised morsel ever. The restau­rant also of­fers a gen­er­ous se­lec­tion for veg­e­tar­i­ans. The fresh­ness of the food served, the care­ful cook­ing tech­niques of Chef Vikram Kha­tri and his team, and un­pre­ten­tious plat­ing— all make for a happy meal. A meal best ended with a slice of Car­rot Cake that comes dressed in a mas­car­pone frost­ing. But­tery and moist, it is best shared even as you make plans for a re­turn visit. Av­er­age meal for two Rs 2,000 on­wards At 28, Main Mar­ket, Lodhi Colony Tel 24690005 by Karuna John
