The Leela Palace New Delhi, Diplomatic Enclave, New Delhi


  • The restaurant has many areas but most people opt for the glamorous main room with its large Buddha statue
  • As glamorous in the winter is the outside area where flaming torches are lit at night
  • They do a great lunch which is of good value and the restaurant is quiet at that time

Vir's Verdict

27 /30

This may well be India's best Japanese restaurant. Unlike Wasabi and the rest which all follow the Nobu tradition, Megu is more traditionally Japanese. Where it scores over the competition is in the quality of the cooking and the inventiveness of its chef. It is also in-your-face glamorous unlike, say, Wasabi, which is small and clubby.

Not as good as before

We ate here 18 months ago and it was an exceptionally good meal, this time it was not as enjoyable. Most of the food was cold, both the rice dishes and 2 of the main courses. My wife's scallops were served a good 5 minutes before the rest of her meal which meant she had a choice of eating them on their own or waiting for the rest of her dinner to arrive. The service could not be faulted but given that we were looking forward to eating here so much it was a real anti climax. They did remove the cost of the cold rice but that was hardly the point. The setting is great and watching the open kitchen is fascinating but standards have clearly slipped.

We loved Megu! It's a stunning space, beautifully decorated, and the service and the food are exceptional! Lovely to see the chefs preparing the sushi right in front of you, delicious fresh fish and excellent cocktails!

Excellent atmosphere and food

Megu has not once disappointed us; it has an incredible atmosphere and the waiters are very attentive and observant of one's needs and desires. Of course, the food is nothing but outstanding and the tastes never cease to amaze us. The staff always makes us so comfortable and we have truly enjoyed our visits to Megu thanks to them.

Superb meal

This has got to be the best Japanese / oriental meal in India. Great setting, superb service and excellent food. The sushi rolls in particular were par excellence. Great variety for vegetarians too. Must visit while in Delhi
