Sana-Di-Ge, truly, a hidden gem in Chanakyapuri. Sana-Di-Ge means a lamp, one which is used during prayer and is used sometimes during inauguration ceremonies. This place Sana-Di-Ge is famous in Delhi NCR to serve the best of the Manglorean food. I got to know about this place from my friend, so thought to visit it. The place itself is located in a very posh area of Delhi where most of the embassies are located. There is a good parking area and you will find a peaceful environment even outside the place. I came with my friends here, and we were welcomed gracefully here. The manager, Gaurav Pandey, himself showed us the way for the table. All the staffs welcomed us with namaste. It was a beautiful gesture that one can think of from such a place. Now coming to the ambience, the place is decorated well with the beautiful lantern lamps, antique frames and whatnot. Even the platings are done in a very royal way. All the plates that were placed in the table were made of brass alloy. There is a good seating area here, it's divided into 3 floors though. There is even an outside seating space (terrace) which again adds beauty to this place. I have never been a fan of South Indian food before. But after trying this place I had to change my mind. There are so many things to eat, that too a health-wise perspective. Manglorean Seafood is what one can think of in this weather of Delhi. The food here is fresh, tasty and healthy. What else one can expect? In the starters, I loved their Alambe Sukka, Lotus stem Kali Mirchi, Paneer Varuval, Kaju Sanadige, Koshambari salad, Pomfret Masala Fry, Anjal wrapped in banana leaf, prawn salad and kokum flavoured chicken. In the main course do try their Mangalore mutton curry, Kori (chicken) kundapuri, Kane (ladyfish) Kudla curry along with Kerala Appam, Mangalore Appam, Neer Dosa, Pundi and Kerala Paratha. In the dessert, side go for their Elaneer Payasam. Every dish, here, is made using the ingredients from the South that they get imported from Mangalore. You will get to experience the authentic flavour of every dish because of the spices. Also, do try their King Fish, it's tasty and is full of omega 3. This is the first-ever place which I would say have focused both on the taste side and health side of customers. Not to forget, the white wine is something which I would recommend everyone to try from this place. I never had such a flavour of wine before. Loved it. Also, in the drinks side, have their Elaneer Shunti Nimbehanu (coconut water flavoured with ginger, lemon n mint), Yedid Munchi Panaka (black pepper, fennel, tamarind n jaggery flavoured drink), and Sol Kadi (fresh kokum juice, coconut milk and tempered with spices). Further, in the beverage side, filter coffee is a must here. Overall, I had a good time here. With such service, food, music, I felt that India is full of culture and diversity. An amazing experience. Highly highly highly recommended.
