ORO, the bar
Radisson Blu Paschim Vihar’s bar is called ORO which means gold and the decor has been planned keeping that in mind. Classy, comfortable and upscale, the vibe at ORO is young and perky. The staff behind the bar is deft and innovative with the potions, and shake up some wicked drinks in minutes. The kitchen staff at the hotel is dependable wherever you eat and they cooked up a storm of delectable starters here as well. I spent a leisurely evening
Executive Chef Vikas Pant had taken to the live kitchen while he served us starter after starter directly from his cooking range. The food was innovative and quite different from how the same variants are presented at other places. This was one dinner which will remain in my memory for a long time. Never before had I thought chicken would taste good with aubergine, but it did! Never had I imagined that if Chinese friend rice is mixed with coconut milk, the result would be a spellbinding burst of flavours inside my mouth. Chef Pant had me floored with his skills and for once I wish my diet was larger than what it is. We had to cut the dinner short because while there were more dishes in the planned menu, unfortunately, there was no space in our tummies!
Sitting pretty in the ground floor of the property, is the Tea Lounge which boasts of cupcakes as their speciality, and rightfully so! The decor is not your casual tea lounge/cafe kinds. Instead it is quite well-designed and if you ask me, the Tea Lounge makes for an ideal meeting place for entrepreneurs! If I was living close by, I’d be definitely scheduling my meetings her.
So these were four completely different places to hang out with friends and families if you are in west Delhi.
