Phantom Speaks

25/30

This fine-dining modern Indian restaurant is the brainchild of celebrity chef, Kunal Kapoor. The food philosophy brings traditional Indian food to the plate in a modern style. Some dishes also give in to Western influences like the Baileys-flavoured chhenna pie with a dollop of mascarpone. But for the most part, especially the main courses, the food remains traditional, like the haleem, which is reminiscent of the one served during festive occasions. This blend of the old, coupled with the quirky perspective of a chef who is at his creative best, makes Diya a memorable dining experience.

Great location. Some average some bad food.
I went to enjoy my lunch on Saturday afternoon. The property was grand. We were seated on table 31 with a nice outside view. The staff was quick to respond. We were served chilled lassi with chat papri. After that followed the thali with good quantity bowls. Starters: 1 dahi ka kebab- very average. 1 big chunk of paneer tikka-tasted bland with no assimilation of masalas. Worst ever I had. Dal makhani and chhole were flavoursome, baingan bharta very average without smokey flavour, nothing special about paneer ki sabzi and aloo matar. Gobhi was hard to cut with spoon so didn't taste it. They don't offer raita. Sweet dishes: 1 gulab jamun: okay, 1 ras malai: I didn't expect such worst quality in a 5 star hotel. It seemed like it was diluted with water and stale. Breads: Garlic naan- perfectly done, hot and crispy. Rice: okay. Condiments: green chutney. No salad. No pickle. Ambience is great. Food is average.

Perfect place for some gourmet Indian Food
Excellent food! Beautifully balanced with great flavours! Both the veg and non vegetarian selections for the thali were impeccably presented and with bags of flavour! The malai tikka, mutton and the dal makhani were exceptional as was the dessert of Kesar rasmalai. Service was stellar with a special mention for Shubham who was incredibly pleasant, polite and delighted our 8 yo with a special mango drink as well! This was our third visit to Saffron and we can't wait to be back!

simply awesome
went there for dinner with Korean office team and they just loved the food and wine collection . the ambience complemented the food. the best part was the live local band playing tablas and harmoniyom which the foreigners loved specially when they played Hotel California and then the Korean song Gungnam style . amazing and warm staff to compliment the overall experience

Ruined my dad's birthday lunch, horrible food.
Mediocre food , beyond horrible service. You have to repeatedly request them to get your order , which they won't even pay heed to. I went for my dad's birthday lunch this afternoon and we were extremely put off by the taste of the food, the quantity and the extremely rude behaviour of the staff. The food was stale and served cold, like their attitude towards their guests (they didn't even acknowledge our request for a particular table for 10, saying it was reserved which it wasn't ) . The only reason I'm giving this restaurant even one star is the fact that I liked the ambience. Never visiting diya again! Ps- do not plan your special days here, unless you want to ruin them. I've personally never been so disappointed.
