The words Ni Hao mean ‘Hello’ or ‘Hi’ in Chinese, but for the people of Delhi-NCR this is the newest stop to stuff their bellies with the most authentic flavours. Earlier Park Plaza but now Radisson Noida at Sector 55, a week ago opened its doors to the most authentic oriental restaurant. An intriguing ambience, subtle table settings, an ideal atmosphere for fine dining, the most perfectly designed food and a team of courteous staff – this place fulfils the whole laundry list of being the best in class restaurant.
As the bunch of bloggers, all decked up and excited entered the highest floor of the Radisson, the Manager, Head Chef Mr. Rishi with the PR team stood there to welcome us. The place was so warm and welcoming with the most precisely set tables with orchids. What got us the most excited was the live kitchen! From the mise en place to the actual cooking process to cleaning everything is there in front of you. There is no back kitchen to this place and you can see your order being whipped up.
Because we all knew that once the food comes out no one will be able to concentrate on anything else, everybody captured the essence of the ambience in their cameras and like one happy family we all sat down on this long table. If in one word I have to describe the food it would be – perfection.
Each dish was served precisely to everyone by some supremely trained staff. First came the appetizers and the first one only stole the show and set the tone for the rest of the event. It was the Crispy Lotus Stem in Chilli Plum Sauce; if anyone needs a definition of the word balance on their plate, well then this is the dish to order. I am not lying when I say this for a whole of 15 mins only this dish was doing its rounds on the table. We simply could not stop eating it. Crunchy, sweet yet spicy- it was a hit. Then the Melted Cheese & Vegetable Spring Roll which was overflowing with gooey cheese, Pan-fried Slit Chili Chicken which was again a delight was binged on.
They also had a Fish Salt & Pepper which did not please me that much, maybe because the pepper was too sharp for me. Dimsums were obviously a must and what I loved that for the Broccoli & Water Chestnut ones, even the dough was bright green. Every ingredient’s organic taste was perfectly highlighted. Another appetizer that was kept a secret was the Pecking Duck with Pancake. I had something like this for the first time and I actually enjoyed it.
We all were so stuffed when the main course was served that we tasted only a few dishes. I enjoyed my Stir Fried Minced Chicken with Basil and the Shandong Style Vegetable Fried Rice. They have an array of 130 dishes on their menu which is a hefty number to leave you spoilt for choice. As everyone was having a hearty chat at the table, the expression in unity changed to ‘ooooh’ when the dessert i.e. Fried Ice Cream was served. Coated with coconut and served on a basic crisp with a chocolate cigar oh my god I can happily go back to Ni Hao just to eat 2 plates of this. They also serve fortune cookies with the most interesting pieces to read.
When you visit Ni Hao, from the moment you enter to the time you leave only one thought will keep ringing in your mind- that how detailed a planning and careful an execution would have gone into bringing this gem to us. Delightful, perfect, instagrammable, warm, pleasing, every positive adjective is for this place. Go make a reservation now!
