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.
This place has been designed and planned painstakingly and one can make that out once u enter just like how any Leela property Restraunt is expected to be...
However I was taken aback on the food and the selection of food on offer...for the price they are charging there are similar or even far better options available at better prices!
Enjoyed the bento box lunch at lunch with a glass of white wine ... Consisting of sushi along with sashimi ( octopus , salmon and eel), served with teriyaki chicken and chicken with leeks on skewers accompanied with miso soup and rice and gravy ... For Desert we had the chocolate fondant .. Fondant was good however the accompanied ice cream could be given a miss ..
The ambience is pretty stylish and you get a warm welcome from the very attentive staff. Here you can taste the freshness of the food by the way they prepare their dishes. Seafood Miso soup was well-flavored - not too salty or bland - and with sufficient amounts of tofu, seaweed and scallions swimming in the tasty broth. Will return on another special occasion.
Megu has earned some Michelin stars internationally. It's quality lives up to this reputation in delhi too. A grand entrance with the finest Sake bottles stacked in a wine cellar, a crystal Buddha with a 500 kgs of crystal bell on top, a serene outdoor seating and a classy and formal dining area inside. Tell your server to recommend a Sake to order a Karafe as per your taste and they will be happy to oblige. The Shira ae here is top notch. The best I've ever had, compared to wasabi too. The grill section has great options and after the treatment the meal comes out juicy and fragrant. Don't forget to ask for fresh wasabi.! Save this place for a special occasion because it's not just great food, it's an experience you will remember for a long time.
I've been eating here for over 1 year and I've never had a bad meal once.I wanted to try this place for ages and finally did.
Kind staff, enough space for all interested. We just love the food there - next time we'll take some photos prior eating.Place with great vegetarian/vegan food. ;).
