Review of Chi - ni ,Chinese restaurant at Dusit Devarana

Chi-ni - or ' to eat ' in Chinese , headed by Executive Chef Nishant Choubey is the soon to launched Chinese restaurant at Dusit Devarana . Inspired by the much celebrated Michelin Star Restaurant , Kai of London , Ankur Bhatia along with Bernard Yeoh of Kai have created a masterpiece - Fine dining amidst beautiful surroundings ,Chi-ni boasts not just of it's fine cuisine and crockery ( as never seen in Delhi I assure you ) but of the biggest tented roof adding that wow factor to the restaurant and experience.

Chinese Master Chef Ban showcases his skills by bringing together a wonderful amalgamation of traditional Chines Cuisines with modern touches .His food is delicious . Lightly spiced and dynamic in flavor, innovation and mastery of ingredients was evident with each dish we tasted.Chef Ban will take Delhi by storm.

Vegetarian Goose in plum sauce , Wasabi Mushrooms and Soft Shell Crabs in a superbly flavored crunchy batter were the perfect starters.A Hot and Sour Soup , dark and dense with Chin Chin Vinegar made with fermented beans - a bit too thick for me , but delicious nonetheless.

For mains we went with a super 3 Chili Chicken , crunchy Garlicky Greens and baked Chilean Seabass in a spicy, sauce which was outstanding . All this came Vermicelli Noodle and a flavorful bowl of Ginger Rice. A special mention of Chef Ban's 6 hour slow cooked XO Sauce made with Parma Ham and a baked yogurt berry compost topped dessert - subtle and a visual delight.

Sourish and I was totally bowled over by our meal and the humble Chef
