Review

Setting

Celebrity chef Gaggan Anand has come far from his humble Kolkata origins—as has the food at his eponymous, waiting list-only restaurant. Each year the menu becomes less legibly Indian and more reflective of the stamps in the outspoken iconoclast’s passport, although the El Bulli-inspired molecular techniques, rapid-fire service and showmanship remain.

Rating : 18/20

Food

The chef’s table offers the full, personality-led Gaggan experience, complete with expletives and displays of audacious culinary artistry. Guests begin their meal the same way: by trying to decipher a list of 25 emojis, each corresponding to a dish on the tasting menu. The meticulously constructed bites arrive randomly without cutlery. So you may be gingerly handling a delicate sea urchin and turnip taco one minute; licking a plate of brain curry or breaking open a steaming goat bao the next. A homage to India–the spherical yoghurt explosion–remains, but otherwise the menu is in constant flux. From first bite to last Gaggan is hell-bent on defying expectations, showcasing the latest ingredients on his radar, no matter how outlandish results might seem. Critics and curry lovers be damned.

Wine

Throughout the restaurant are several sommeliers, each a fount of knowledge. A wine pairing based on their intimate knowledge of the menu and pan-Indian flavours is available, as are innovative and classic cocktails.
