My Experience at Kheer, Roseate House, Aerocity

Roseate House opened in Aerocity last year, and there was a lot of excitement about the hotel opening after its counterpart The Roseate garnered a lot of praise for itself. But the two hotels cannot be compared. Roseate House is more contemporary and has a different outlook. You see that from the moment you enter the hotel. They have an Indian restaurant that was the first one to open here, called Kheer. I went to Kheer when it opened for pre-launch at an event, and saw the who’s who of the food industry attend that dinner. But I recently had a dining experience here which qualified as a proper dining experience at a restaurant, and that’s when I really experienced the food and service.

Kheer has a menu that’s not high on butter and ghee, it’s not the typical Indian menu, but every Indian dish has its own take on it. The menu is concise, not very big to confuse the diner, yet has enough options to choose from.

The place is huge, and the centrepiece hanging from the ceiling are a lot of bells coloured in copper. At the far end of the restaurant is the open kitchen, and right when you enter is the bar. Dimly-lit, bustling but not in a bad way, and a certain calm feel to the experience. Totally qualifies for a nice date venue too.

You're in for a real treat at Sorrento, Shangri-La's Eros Hotel's Italian brunch

The warm winter Sun, a stunning alfresco area, fresh ingredients, delicious dishes, an extravagant spread of Italian food, flowing wine and prosecco- that’s what the brunch at Sorrento, Shangri-La Ero’s Hotel New Delhi feels like. A brunch that’s on a Saturday instead of a Sunday is a great idea I think. Saturday is a day people don’t have any brunch options to choose from, and they usually head out for an ala carte dining experience for lunch. Having Sorrento offer a stunning brunch on a day when nobody else is, is a win-win for them either ways, and a winner for you because you get such a superlative brunch.
