I took the family there for lunch. After we were seated, we were handed iPads with the menu on it. Nothing that stood out since some places have shifted to electronic menus.

However the moment we took it in our hands and started exploring, we figured this is unique. You click on a dish and they show you the rushes of how the dish is prepared in 10-15 seconds. After seeing a couple of videos, we were rapidly going from hungry to ravenous. But the curiosity got the better of us just a bit longer. So we lingered on with the iPad. It had buttons for ingredients, clicking which brought up key ingredients in each dish. There were more options to explore, like which wine would go well with that dish, how do you pronounce the name of the dish, etc. What I would call the engagement of all senses before you actually sample the food itself.

We had two starters. One was a paneer with lime. The other was a chaat with feta cheese, served in an aloo ki tokri. Both had unique flavours and tasted incredible. Not a morsel was left. We also ordered some soup, which also had great texture and flavours.

After a late Sunday breakfast, we were rapidly getting full but we of course had to sample the main course. So we ordered a vegetable biryani which is served with raita and mirchi ka salan. Though the raita was a bit sour, the combination worked out well for our palate.

No meal is complete without desserts and we ordered a rasmalai with sorbet. It was quite well done. The rasmalai neither looked like nor tasted like the traditional fare. It was true fusion stuff.

The true test of good food is you end up overeating and not a morsel is left. This meal qualified on both counts. All in all, we had a very memorable lunch.

I visited this place for the Mango menu. Pluck, modern day eatery at Lobby Level serves Modern European and Contemporary Indian flavours has introduced Mango special menu on the onset of the Indian summer amidst a flurry of flavours and colour.

With subtle and beautifully done ambience in royal beige, this was one of the best fine dine experience i had. It is always very relaxing to dine in at some places very cosy and soothing, having a sublime touch making you go awe-inspiring in the very first visit. The menu at Pluck is decided by seasonal availability of produce.

From Salads, appetisers and main course to cool, refreshing summer mocktails.
I could never have imagined Mango being incorporated in such perfect manner in a 5 course meal.
Mango Gazpacho Soup

Served as a Gazpacho which is a cold soup had Avacado Cheddar Ice-cream and mint tagliatelle, soup was a complete delight.

Tangy Mango Marinated Chicken Tikka

Succulent and perfectly marinated chicken on spicy raw mango sauce topped up with some micro greens to give you a complete delightful experience on table.

Quinoa and Mango Salad
With lemon and ginger dressing this salad was a complete meal in itself. With the goodness of the superfood (Quinoa) and the distinctive sweetness of mangoes, this was balanced with the lemon and ginger dressing tossed well with other ingredients.

Desserts
Cottage cheese Gnocchi over Kadhai Masala Risotto steps up to dress the main course to be followed by a sinful service of the Mango Parfait with coconut sorbet.

With some spectacular ambience, the main entrance comes with a view of delight. And the pool of lip-smacking dishes, I am sure you won’t miss a chance to come back here again.

Had a lovely meal and very extensive menu. The only thing difficult to get used to was using i pads to choose food. It is easier to flip pages when using a traditional menu.

This was on my go to list for very long and finally got a chance to dine at this place.
As a Le Accor member I did a reservation online.
So I reached there before time and they were more than happy to offer me a table. The service standards was very high. One of the best I have seen in India. So 5 out of 5 for service and staffs. Avinash was great and did offered some suggestion.
Restaurant has a good ambiance and a calm feeling about it.
Now coming to the food. We decided to go for "Surf and Turf " and was expecting something marvelous. I am a big fan of fusion food and regularly visit Indian Accent. I was not expecting something like that but was expecting close enough.
So I started with Salmon and probably one of the best I ever had. Well cooked juicy and perfect in all aspect. Though everything post that was below average other than lemon sorbet and dessert. Duck was good but nothing excellent or wow about that.
I'll probably never go for there and have ''surf and turf'' but few of the offerings are moth watering. Probably a A la Carte for me.
Again service was of very high standards and I really appreciate that.
