Located in the greenest surroundings, one of the most security laden roads of Delhi, Sardar Patel Marg is the Hotel Diplomat. It is a reflection of contemporary sophistication. Amreli , as beautiful as the parent itself marks luxury and uber chic interiors with chess board flooring and contemporary art works on walls. The furniture is eclectic and the mismatched chairs make it all the more worthwhile. 

The whole place has a anything goes kind of feel with a semi formal or I must say a casual style dining. It is a cross between an up market London diner and a classic bistro with alfresco area and sophisticated environment over looking lush greenery. The alfresco area is a great option for outdoor dining and is a quiet courtyard with lush green and perky seating to enhance the ambience and the experience. Far enough from the cacophony of the city but still close enough to people-watch.

The menu has been created by Chef Saby (Sabyasachi Gorai) and used to be too eclectic with continental, American, Italian food sitting side by side with a great Indian stuff from both North as well as coastal India. But now after the Menu has been revamped everything has been taken of the menu except Indian (coastal and north) and Pan Asian has been added to the menu. For me it was a little disappointing as I loved their Italian as well as Pattiserie fare. 

Anyways, we started with the Oriental fare and ordered a few Dimsums both veg and non veg. The Tofu and Bak choy stuffed Dimsums were nice and light and the Thai lamb chilli garlic Dimsums were also very good. I tried the Chicken Manchow Soup which was made very well with all the authenticity it could have been.

The Teriyaki chicken skewers were just perfect and all the flavor of the grill and teriyaki sauce. We also ordered from the Indian small plates section as it seemed very interesting.  The Egg Appam and the Keema Anda fry are really a must order items. All items have their virtues, like the egg appam also called hoppers and beloved food stuff in the spice- crazy Sri Lanka; this is spicy yet altogether docile.The Anda Keema Pav is an all time favourite, mutton mince cooked in fragrant spices with fried eggs on top with a Pav bun. Heaven on earth, really. I ordered a tasting platter with 2-3 pieces of Malai chicken tikkas and Malai fish tikka, Chunky seekh etc. I must tell you each item was perfectly marinated and perfectly grilled in the tandoor.

For the mains, I ordered a small portion of Sole Meen Moilee and a Shikari murg on Chefs recommendation.  I loved the thin curry of meen moilee with the absorbent Appams and also the Shikari murg , a very simple and rustic preparation just like we cook at home.
Coming to the Desserts, the only dessert available was the Death by Chocolate made with the best ingredients though it’s outsourced, yet was sinfully good.
