The Spice Route, Delhi

Tel: 91 11 4111 6605's insider take:

This fantastical restaurant, hand-painted by temple artists flown in from Kerala, resembles a temple (or at least an Indiana Jones movie). You'll feast like a king on the eclectic Asian dishes served here, with their Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian, and other influences. The irachi stew of lamb and potato in coconut milk, served with rice-flour pancakes, is delicious. Wash it down with a glass of spiced pineapple rasam with fresh curry leaves. For dessert, the Sagu Sagu (Thai rice pudding with cardamom, pandan, cinnamon, and sugar) is extraordinary.
