This all-day dining brings a show kitchen which adds to the excitement and energy that is supreme to the lobby level of the Leela Ambience, with a tasteful yet relaxed atmosphere featuring global cuisine offering guests with a sensual world cuisine experience along with custom-made music, intended to suit the mood of the day. I would suggest you to set your appetite free to engross in an exploration of the senses. The food, as with the service, is enjoyable. Go for the buffet if you want a bit of everything which offers a great choice and especially the Indian and the Asian and end this gastronomic delight with a pick from the exotic dessert counter including creamy tiramisu made with fresh mascarpone, a slice of gateaux or just a crème brulé. Highlights from the á la carte include the ‘chorizo pizza’, ‘braised lamb shank’ and the ‘chicken shawarma’. The bar menu is indulgent too and the bartender is ever ready to whip up exciting cocktails or pour you a glass of whatever you fancy.
It takes a lot for an all-day dining restaurant to break away from the stereotypical conventions assigned by the industry. Many times they try through their exciting menu or by giving the diners a gorgeous ambience to revel in. New Delhi has its generous share of luxurious 24X7 eateries, part of those glitzy hotels that pops up on every second corner. It has seen a variety of set-ups but there are a few surprises left still. Take ‘Café Knosh’ for instance. The restaurant is part of posh The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel in Vivek Vihar and attracts quite a bit of suits, as the place gives them an elegant hush-hush background for important negotiations. Being an all-day dining venture Café Knosh is always buzzing with activity although it still maintains its business front.
The place is favoured by ladies living in the vicinity for a quiet brunch. As the day starts pretty early for them having a lavish breakfast here is a good idea. Their menu is a combination of North Indian and Continental dishes, which can be enjoyed with a bottle of wine or a glass of iced tea, whatever suits your mood. To kick-start your evening with Café Knosh its best to begin with an array of scrumptious appetizers such as, kurkure jhinge, tomato & bocconcini salad, malai paneer tikka, minestrone soup, horiatiki salad, gilafi seekh kebab, smoked tomato & fennel soup, anjeer akhrot ki seekh and patrani macchli. Main course is a delightful selection of dishes like, murgh tikka masala, lamb shepherd’s pie, kai korma, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, shahi kofta curry, farfalle alfredo, capricciosa pizza, barbeque chicken with herb jus and shahi mutton korma.
Finally to wrap up this evening finish with an indulgent selection of desserts. Café Knosh woos you with, gajjar halwa, sticky date pudding, gulab jamun, Philadelphia cheese cake, pista kulfi, traditional tiramisu, rasmalai, apple tart, coconut crème brulee and seasonal fruit flavoured baked yoghurt. Sunday brunch is one of their popular choices. Café Knosh is one of the expensive places, keep that in mind. Café Knosh is set in a sprawling way and done up in earthy tasteful way in tones of wood. To pep the room up they have used bright red chairs. There is plenty of space to sit. Café Knosh is elegant, refined and good-looking.
