gaggan asia’s number one restaurant, is definitely not the stereotypical indian-as-you-know-it. elaborated punjub theme exuding exotic opulence with warm, vibrant colors and layers of texture.. is probably what you’d imagine. but instead you enter a stunning whitewashed colonial style wooden house where it makes you feel at home (despite the fact that you can’t help but feel a little uncomfortable with the bill that is soon to come your way).
gaggan pushes the boundaries yet is never too serious. just take this whimsical touch of presenting the 22-course menu with emojis. although i couldn’t help but be a little skeptical about the 10th dish..
as it is for many well known ‘experimental’ and ‘progressive’ restaurants as gaggan, i’d say it’s emphasis is on experience over food. but i mean at least i get to tick off dining at asia’ number one restaurant, right?
