What’s on the menu? Each of the exquisitely crafted dishes at Megu display the Japanese hallmarks of balance and precision. Opt for the miso grilled chicken with charred scallions, the sweet and tangy 24-hour braised pork belly, or the Scottish salmon steak with teriyaki sauce. If you’re in the mood for sharing, the speciality platters, such as the Chef’s Choice Omakase, offer the chance to taste some of everything.
The decor: Megu boasts strikingly contemporary interiors in red and black, which feature a crystal Buddha suspended over a pool of water, bonsho bells hanging from the ceiling and rooms hung with antique silk kimono fabric.
Where to sit? Found on the ground floor of one of New Delhi’s top hotels, The Leela, Megu offers an evening of Manhattan-style glamour. There are multiple dining rooms to choose from, including a spectacular Buddha Hall and a private dining room for an intimate gathering of eight guests.
The sake selection: The wine list is excellent, but the sake menu is even better. With over 60 to choose from, including a sparkling variety infused with tropical fruits and candied citrus, there is a glass to complement every dish. Try a tipple with the signature yellowtail carpaccio or the salmon tartare.
