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.
