RESTAURANT REVIEW: GUPPY BY AI, LODHI COLONY

ForTheReluctantChefI hesitate to recommend Guppy – it’s hard enough to get a table.

LOOKS LIKE
The place is adorable. Designed by Wes Anderson on an anime trip. Lots of colour and whimsical Jap cultural references – what’s not to love.

TASTES LIKE

One of my favourite menus in Delhi and some good food that’s good for you. I could live for a week on the Chilli Edamame. The Black Cod is everything everyone’s raved about and their sushi game is also on point. The chef’s experiment, using red rice from the North East for some of the sushi rolls, is a spectacular success. The red rice is firm and flavourful enough in its own right to hold its own against the fresh fillings.

The mocktail scene is a total fail though – everything is too sugary.

FEELS LIKE
Tastefully buzzy, Guppy is a pleasure.
