In the plush environs of Le Meridien sits their showpiece restaurant, Eau de Monsoon. The ‘eau’ in this case is supplied by a jet of water between two sheets of glass to make a statement yet to be silent. As one of the very first restaurants in the capital to back modern Indian, the menu has always been new-age Indian, with international ingredients, Indian spices and Western presentations. Their rendition of sea bass with a coulis of Madras curry accompanied by asparagus and snow peas is represented of their oeuvre. The interiors do not look like a typical Indian restaurant.
A great fine dine experience during our recent official dinner at Eau De Monsoon.The restaurant opens at 7, we reached early but didn't have the option of getting in since the entry is locked and opens not before 7. Anyway, once inside, the interiors of the restaurant are exquisitely dark themed. Nothing lavish or over the top but still very impressive. We were given a separate seating in kind of an exclusive section with glass waterfall facing which was beautiful. Now coming to the food; unexpectedly whatever they served, suited my taste buds very well. Here's what was on the table: Cottage Cheese Triology - Very good selection of cottage cheese with different flavors; particularly the achari whic was very good and spicy enough. Very likeable. The whole platter is a very good option for those who like veg. 4/5 King Prawns - Prawns infused with basil and yogurt. The prawn were good, soft but I've had better prawn elsewhere. Good option but you won't miss anything if you don't order. 3.5/5 Chicken Tikka Duo Garlic - Nicely marinated pieces of soft chicken tikka. I would have liked them a li'l bit more spicy though. Nothing spectacular but good enough still. 3.5/5 Seabass - An unexpected but pleasant surprise. A fusion dish of fish cooked continental style with madras curry (which was superb and very creamy). This was something I've never had before anywhere and being a fusion restaurant they did it exceptionally well. Highly recommended !! 5/5 Chicken Tikka in Makhni Sauce - Wow, another exception offering. I get salivated even thinking of it. The gravy was exceptional and will blow your buds. Another highly recommended dish !! 5/5 Lamb curry - Nicely cooked mutton with curry. But like prawns, I've had better mutton a lot of places. So this was good but could be missed. 3.5/5 The service is what you expect it to be - world class. The manager - Shubham was very heedful of what we're having and what we needed. The servers did a superb job explaining the dishes before we have them. Very happy with the service and they made the evening worth remembering. Overall a very good experience. Great food, next level service and a superb ambiance to go with it. PS: It would have been better if there was some soft music in the background. But I don't know if they played it outside since we were seating in a exclusive enclosed space. Anyway, just a thought. Overall experience: 4.5/5
The Indian food at eau de Monsoon, located inside Le Meridien hotel, is excellent. Try multigrain rotis. A nice touch is a high-tech menu with videos – rather than photos – of various dishes. Very helpful staff.
the food in the buffet that was supposed to be hot, was cold. always. potatoes, bacon, sausages, beans... all cold. all the time.
The food was delicious. My family loves the naan served here. I especially liked the coffee. The lady who served us, Anjali Singh , was very polite and courteous. On being asked about the meaning of a word in the menu, she very patiently explained it. She really put me at my ease.
Just visited this restaurant today for dinner,only one word to Express WOW.the food was just amazing. Presentation top notch.service was up on the mark . Food on expensive side but worth it
The show restaurants are just not there for the food but for portraying a stunning ambience as well. Itâ€™s the ambience that takes an average restaurant a long way, giving it a new life. If you want to razzle-dazzle someone then picking a show restaurant is the right way to go. There are several fancy restaurants in the neighbourhood tucked cosily in the lap of luxury of five star hotels. And part of fine dining restaurant circuit is Le Meridien Hotelâ€™s â€˜Eau De Monsoonâ€™, situated on the ground floor of this beautiful hotel. It was one of the earliest restaurants to back Modern Indian cuisine in the city and is still considered to be the best when it comes to that particular style of cooking. Eau De Monsoon has only added to the popularity of the hotel.
The chef has done a wonderful job of handcrafting the menu, sticking to the classic elements of Continental, European, North Indian and French cuisine. They have taken western techniques and blended them with our traditional recipes to achieve the contemporary result of the cuisine. Modern Indian cuisine is the highlight of the menu. Open the menu by pampering yourself with some appetizers like, lamb galawat, kasundi marinated sole, tandoori broccoli, deconstructed samosa, tandoori lamb burrah, dosa mille-feuille, chicken tikka duo garlic and tempered pumpkin & lentil cappuccino. Enjoy the main course by feasting on, lamb korma, masala smoked duck breast, seared calcutta betki, Norwegian salmon, hot tender lamb curry, corn & mushroom strudel, lamb shanks and sea bass madras curry.
Try pairing the curries with jalapeno paratha or basmati pilaf rice. To truly surprise yourself sample their dessert course, in which they have outdone themselves. Heritage carrot fig halwa, rose & saffron brulee, thandai panna cotta, pineapple jalebi and chocolate pave is decadent. No wonder Eau De Monsoon is so expensive, it is bound to be considering all the marvellous creativity. The look of Eau De Monsoon is upscale and sophisticated. Polished wooden walls enhance the appeal of this sprawling restaurant that has a waterfall feature on one side of the room. On the other end is a vast wine library, behind which is a set of plush private dining rooms that can easily seat a party of 12 and 20, respectively. The dimly lit atmosphere and the soothing water feature makes Eau De Monsoon a romantic and glamourous dining destination.
