The Leela Palace is an amazing property right in the heart of New Delhi. It takes luxury to the highest standard. Though I have visited the property and taken in the lovely architecture, I have never had a chance to stay in it as Delhi is my hometown. However during my last visit I had the pleasure of enjoying the Sunday Brunch with my family at their restaurant The Qube and was compelled to write a review for it.
I can summarize my experience at The Qube in one sentence, "One of the best Sunday brunches I have had till date." I was there to celebrate my wedding anniversary with my wife and kids and we loved the experience. The first thing you notice as you enter is the tall imposing entrance door which leads you to the main restaurant and prepares you for a grand food roller-coaster waiting inside. The decor is modern with straight lines and high glass walls looking onto a beautifully landscaped lawn. The aisles in between the tables are quite spacious and the kids loved running around the area. The staff is very courteous, extremely attentive & the chefs behind the counters are generous with their suggestions as with their food.
The "food" however is the main focus for both the restaurant staff and the guest. I have tried quiet a few buffet spreads, (even at hotels in Las Vegas which are known for their buffets) but I can without doubt say that this was one of the best I have sampled both in terms of quantity and quality. I tried to sample and taste all the dishes on the spread but if I try to talk about each one this is going to be one long review, so I would stick to a few special mentions. The choice of dim-sums is amazing with vegetarian, seafood, chicken, prawn fillings & it should definitely be tried with the spicy sauce. The seafood spread and the cold cuts were fresh and I loved the octopus salad. They have an outdoor grill which does Indian styled tandoori veggies, meat and seafood. The main course and live counters have a huge variety and I would highly recommend Pork belly in tamarind sauce. The dessert spread was huge and for people with a sweet tooth it is pure indulgence. All in all it was a great experience and the staff topped it up with a small but sweet gesture by a chocolate cake for our anniversary.
I am sure I will be going back for more and definitely a stay too, as my 5 year old son kept asking me at the end of the meal, "Dad, why are we not staying at this hotel, it is so nice".
