Great For

What Makes It Awesome?

The In-Q is located at the Manor Hotel in New Friends colony. The theme of the cuisine is Indian contemporary fusion. The highlight of our menu was the Palate cleanser which was a little small chocolate bomb of French white chocolate and spiced mint water on the inside. After that followed 'Kuttu' which were buckwheat golgappas with avocado, tamarind and wasabi filling. The non-veg one had a prawn mousse in it. Surprisingly the veg ones were way better and way more structured in flavour, as compared to the non-veg ones. Post that came to the Volcano and Butternut squash, These were both small balls of fusion food. The volcano was brain patte with an outer crust of rich crispies or 'murmure' and the butternut one had a sesame crust with some veggies inside. Both were unique experiments but not so great when it came to the taste. They were palatable at the best. Post that came to the idli and sambar where we had nano idlis, with artisanal sambhar, which was like a clear broth with a nostalgic and sophisticated flavour bouquet. It was a little tangy, and the nano idlis and vegetables acted as croutons. The good part ends here. The main course was average at best. It was Fried okra, which was strips of okra fried put on a base of an extremely tomato filled gravy. It seemed like the same base was used to make the chicken dishes, while the chicken was well cooked, but the gravy was not. These were accompanied by really cute but small naans. It just seemed a little odd. The tasting menu ended with a dessert - a coconut payasam candy, which came as a kulfi and won us for the unique experiment and presentation. Rest gives it a 3/5 and a Kudos on the experimentation.

What Could Be Better?

The kulfi didn't taste great because of the matcha dust on it. It probably needs more experimentation because honestly, it missed the mark.
