Without limiting its competence to change from a tranquil daytime haunt to a distinguished sundown space, the environs echo multi-faceted creativity. The menu traces on superlative food with flavours and consistencies inspired from good French cooking techniques with promising young Chef Priyam Chatterjee, centring on novel savours and plates made from handpicked ingredients and refined to generate a treat for all the senses. For an appetizer, you may merely realise the distinctive Qla touch when you order ‘Sauvignon blanc poached shimji, duxuelle champignon and edible greens’. This dish breaks accurate to the idea of the menu – merging ingredients that wed the chef’s progressive approach to the cuisine. My bliss lies in the first shameless bite of a ‘garden salad’ aka pan seared scallopor, in-house smoked goat cheese, served on a bed of basil dust and edible art; and at the bottom of a refreshing champagne cocktail, and sometimes in that decadent ‘tagliatelle’ doused with Kashmiri saffron cream and tiger prawns, sprinkled with edible greens and parmesan chips, the thin crust pizzas or the last bite of a mouth melting ‘noir truffle crème brulee’ with chantilly mousse and I found it all in an unperturbed corner of Qla. The menu rejoices flavours and panaches contingent in a unique and original way but never overlooking that good harvest is at the core of the best food.
Visited the restaurant with family friends . Ambiance of the restaurant was the biggest appeal ( heard a lot about it already ) . Ordered a huge variety of starters n main course ( veg n non veg ) . Each n every dish was appreciated for its taste n presentation. Mocktails n desserts were equally good . It is a great mix of lovely ambience with great food n excellent service .
Let me state upfront - we LOVE Qla. But to be honest the Young Guns tasting menu was a bit of a let down - more technique than taste. As we told Prateek, the Qla menu is F-A-A-R better....
The food was good enjoyed the appetizers and main dishGood selection of vegetarian and non vegetarian food choices

Recently they have launched a new menu for winters- fall-winter collection. They have a live kitchen and an excellent bar. Prateek pairs the wines with food so well that you are left spellbound. The service was a bit slow and can definitely be improved. The food gets full marks. It is picturesque, well presented, delicious food. The pairing of wines gets full marks too. I had tasters menu that did not leave me palette fatigued. Yet, I tasted everything, small portions in the original dishes in which they are served. They seemed to be really focused. Qla is not just about hype created about concepts but they are about substance, where every bite and sip counts. For them, food is like the whole orchestra that comes together- food and wine, ambience, music, etc. Their idea is to keep it easy and organic. Thankfully, it was not some crazy food that would leave you overwhelmed. All your senses will come out feeling very happy from Qla.
I went there with my friends on Saturday 11th November. My friends wanted to go to Olive but I insisted of Qla because I had heard about it. I must say it was one of the worst decisions I have made in terms of choosing a restaurant. I agree the ambience is wonderful & staff is courteous but I had gone their for food & it wasn't worth at all😒The quantity of food was really less & specially considering the exuberant price. The worst part was soup which was served at room temperature (not hot) and quantity was so less that It was touching bottom of the 🍚 bowl. I refused to have and pay them for that below average tasting, cold, barely there soup. 😕I asked for Veg Pasta as main course (and as last hope to feed the rats Hip Hoping in my stomach) which I was told comes as two default vegetables that is cauliflower & beans to which my reaction was WHAT !! What!! What!!( in true Ekta Kapoor's serial style)😦For a moment I felt i m listening to my mother's punjabi version of the Pasta receipe which she may would like experiment with Gobhi beans & Whatever other cheap available vegetable she can find 😂 Who makes Pasta with cauliflower as default vegetable 😳and keep it @ cost of around 700 bugs Dude 😖U r a so called fine dinning restaurant serving Pasta with Cauliflower 😯REALLY. Not trying to drop names like North Indians r famous to do but I regularly visit Sorento (Shangrila) & La Piazza (Hyatt) & never in all these years I was ever served any version of Pasta with cauliflower Chef 👨🍳 Priyam Chatterjee (with all due respect to u & ur culinary skills) I would like to remind u that We do understand concept of "Fine Dinning" & European Cusine but ur restaurant is in India & v get paid in INR not Euros 🙂 So it would be great if u would add Value for money (which is one of the most important part of customer satisfaction) to ur restaurant.. Special Thanks to Jaram for his warmth & courtesy. Looking forward to a better experience if I may at all visit ur place again.

Food snobs often raise their eyebrows and look down upon anything that isn’t presented beautifully, while plate after plate of delicious food comes and goes from their table in hopes for that one moment when something just clicks on the palate. ‘QLA’ is like that. A lovely haven for gourmets and food critics to lose their doubts and just take deep pleasure in the art of fine dining. The restaurant is nestled under the long shadow of Qutab Minar at Seven Style Mile in Mehrauli and is housed in a lovely sprawling heritage villa with a wrap around courtyard. The beautiful setting next to the magnificent Qutub Minar multiplies the style quotient of the place, placing it in the bracket of cool and trendy. If you want to escape the hustle-bustle of New Delhi, come here to enjoy a tranquil dinner in the lap of luxury.
Chef Priyam Chatterjee brings alive his dishes by respecting his ingredients and focusing on the seasonal produce to showcase his progressive techniques. A carefully curated menu encompassing European, Italian and Spanish cuisines takes over your senses with the very first bite. Sit outdoors with gleaming Qutub in the background and experience the best of what Delhi has to offer at QLA. Some nights they play live music to amp up your evening. It will be a romantic exotic experience. Define your first course with, six inches under salad, kaffir lime infused coconut veloute, fish & chips, sauvignon blanc poached shimji and Kashmir saffron infused tomato & prawns tartar. For your second course opt for, Arborio verde, hand pulled braised lamb shank burger, diavoletta pizza, Singaporean black cod and Chilean sea bass on a plancha.
The chef plays around with his menu a lot so read carefully before ordering. There are plenty of great options to choose from. Dessert are equally exciting to your palate. Deconstructed lemon tart, green apple & vairhana ivory white cheesecake, dehydrated green olive meringue, noir truffle crème brulee and hazelnut crème patisserie. If there is a certain year you are looking for in wine take a peek at their impressive wine list. QLA thrives on its ambience, which is romantic and breathtakingly beautiful. Interiors are stylishly designed with modern luxurious lines. Effect is elegant, affluent and yet cozy. Bring someone here to dazzle them with sophistication and glamour. Bill will be hefty, keep that in mind.
