Thai Re­dux

India Today - - WHAT’S NEW -

How do you up the din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in a city that’s al­ready burst­ing at its seams with din­ing op­tions? Restau­ra­teur Zo­rawar Kalra is good at cre­at­ing spa­ces where it seemed like there was room for no more. His new­est baby has inched its way to the ex­cit­ing One Style Mile near the Qu­tub Mi­nar in New Delhi and is lo­cated in a beau­ti­ful build­ing here. Bo Tai (don’t miss the pun on bow tie in the name) spe­cialises in con­tem­po­rary Thai food and Euro­pean grills. The interiors are all chrome and metal, shiny, up­beat and in­ter­na­tional. The is­land bar oc­cu­pies cen­tral po­si­tion in the and the sig­na­ture cock­tails are wow-wor­thy as the bar team has been trained by the best in Lon­don. There’s also a per­ma­nent mar­ble DJ con­sole so this spot is primed for par­ty­ing.

The food though has to be the big­gest draw (take a bow Chef Sahil Singh) with ex­cep­tion­ally pretty crock­ery (we are told it has been im­ported from Italy and Turkey) ideal for show­cas­ing the del­i­cately flavoured dishes that sing with the mem­ory of Thai flavours and spices. Most plates are ex­cep­tional in their ex­e­cu­tion; fresh, sum­mery, high-qual­ity scal­lops, prawns, tuna, meats all treated with care, with a hint of Thai chilli, lemon­grass, sweet­ness, sour el­e­ments. In ad­di­tion to the fan­tas­tic Thai ap­pe­tis­ers and side dishes (Hokkaido scal­lop carpac­cio, ta­marind crab cakes with sago wafers, and grilled soft shell crab), the mains give you sta­ples and also Euro­pean dishes like lamb chops and other grills. The ser­vice is at­ten­tive and Bo Tai makes a splash with its en­er­getic, up­scale vibe. It is sure to grab the at­ten­tion of those look­ing for great food, great drinks and an even greater lo­ca­tion.
