As I entered this beautiful multileveled restaurant it gave me a feeling of elevation even before the meal began. For those who seek a little more privacy, the intimate tables and individual niches allow just that. Promoter Zorawar Kalra and his wife Dildeep, have collectively conceptualized ‘Pa Pa Ya’ to be a destination for people to come to relax and enjoy the company of friends while sharing a great Asian meal. I would say that a visit here is an opportunity to experience a refreshingly unique and very tasty approach to Modern Asian Bistro style food. Chef Sahil Singh keeps a gastronomic account where supreme produce plays the role of a character on a plate, sublime but not for unadventurous souls. The ‘spiked Berkshire pork bao’ is a great example of this, the Berkshire pork in a steamed bao bun is a stunner. Enjoyably gentle creativity seen in the creation of the chef on the sushi whets your appetite for more as on the menu is a repertoire of many, from yellowtail to crab stick. The mains do not disappoint and some such as the ‘lamb rendang curry’ and ‘braised sliced chicken’ are outstanding.
The thing about gastronomy is that it changes constantly, tossing and turning and transforming itself under the hands of visionary restauranteurs and passionate bold chefs. Its them who bought a wind of change to the ancient glitzy lanes of New Delhi, by grasping its hand and pulling it into the world of modern gastronomy. After North Indian food getting the whole contemporary overhaul, it was now the turn of classic Pan Asian cuisine. Famous restauranteur Zorawar Kalra set his sights towards this new trend and came out with his unique innovative venture ‘Pa Pa Ya’. The name Pa Pa Ya first came into the picture in Mumbai, where it completely transformed the face of Asian gastronomy through its quirky bold menu. After reaching Select Citywalk, Saket, New Delhi, the restaurant only tripled its popularity.
Pa Pa Ya is known for its Modern Asian bistro style food. Its menu presents a contemporary take on Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisines. If you are bored of the usual noodle-gravy fare then it is time to try out this new version of Pan Asian food. Chef Sahil Singh composes a clever well-thought out menu designed to make your mouth water in anticipation. Tap into their fantastic wine collection to pair your meal or take the conventional scotch-cocktail road. While you enjoy the antics at the bar, browse through the menu for the appetizers. Start with, sushi matrix, aubergine & demerara goutie, crispy lotus stem, chili chicken shawarma, California maki, crispy corn curd, beer battered avocado tacos and roasted Korean style hauled chicken. Main course is a heady selection of, yellow curry, lamb rendang curry, braised sliced chicken and Sichuan style crispy prawns.
Eye-catching presentation only elevates your dining experience. Use of river rocks, bamboo stick platter, stone bowls, turmeric leaves add a lovely rustic touch. For sake of your sweet tooth they pamper you with an assortment of desserts. Polish off, chocolate ball on fire or vanilla pannacotta with lemon genoise. Interiors of Pa Pa Ya are modern and trendy. A huge opaque dome rises above the main dining area, flooding the space with natural light during day time but as the evening falls, the vibe changes into something lounge-like and stylish. Multi-coloured lights washes the otherwise structured scene. Heavy-handed use of wooden finishes lends a welcoming appeal to the restaurant. Pa Pa Ya doesn’t come cheap, but it’s so worth it.
