The Mahal by Shantanu & Nikhil #DivineRoyalty

The collection embarks on its journey from the attractive lore culture with the braced narration of the peaceful essence of deserts natural canvas and the intermeddle is a mesmerizing allurement of charismatic luxurious attributes and the strong influence of the  “Jharokha” which is overwhelming and is made with extraordinary amount of soulfulness, taking you to the intricate and sublime star light of the “Sheesh Mahal” and then the seamless sojourn of the palace which comes down to the grandeur of the vigorous and the prestigious “Chariot” depicting the pride and might of the people. The color palette is drawn from the native solitary beauty- beige and brown cheerfully ambles into silver metallics and patina gold and then a bright boost with an accompaniment of the intensity of rich reds and teal blues speaking about the glory and the diversified charm of the atmosphere.

We at Style Coquettes just can’t seem to get over some of the trends we came across during the bridal showcase at DLF Emporio, New Delhi. 

Hence we are breaking down IBFW’s  FAB FOUR TRENDS for all the “Brides to be” 

  • TREND 1 – Mohawk- Maang tikka

Tarun Tahiliani showcased some unconventional colours on the ramp such as white, bronze, gold and champagne but what caught our eye the most was the way he topped off his looks by using the Mohawk inspired maang tikkas. It was indeed very  quirky.

  • TREND 2 – Biker Jacket

Internationally acclaimed designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock gave us a sneak peak into their futuristic bridal collection. We absolutely loved how they replaced the traditional cholis with bicker jackets, jerseys and crop tops!!

  • TREND 3 – Scuba Knit Gowns

Gauri and Nainika showcased their outfits with sharp cuts by using the uncontroversial fabrics like the scuba knit fabric which gave that perfect flirty bounce!!

  • TREND 4 – Androgyny

Rathore showcased an Indian androgynous Look by paring the bandhgala jackets with motif trousers and jodhpuri pants. It definitely reinvented the look of the modern day bride.

It’s not everyday that you get to visit a place where the customer is treated like a KING! That is what exactly happens at SETZ, the multi cuisine restaurant at DLF Emporio, New Delhi.

The seven international kitchens have been SET’Z’s guiding light ever since its inception. With offerings ranging from Northern Indian, Thai, Chinese, Southern Coastal Indian, Arabic, European and Japanese, the place exhibits GASTRONOMIC EXUBERANCE!

The NEW MENU has been specially created to bring you the BEST from the BEST. It is a select choice of dishes from across cuisines included in the menu after taking customer feedback. Adding more flavours to the fair, is a unique notion of “Back to the Basic” which keeps the contemporary sprit alive even though preserving the quintessence of authenticity.

Honoring these cuisines is Setz sumptuous and interactive buffet concept wherein each section is based on the personalized, live food stations, which apart from ready to eat dishes gives a leverage to get the food custom made in accordance to the guest’s requirement.

We began our gastronomical journey with savoring starters from across the menu.

First up were the dimsums. Peaking duck, spinach wrap, chicken, lamb, prawn, water chestnut, peanut, cashewnut, phew!! Setz definitely has the best dimsum menu though my personal favourite were the chestnut ones which had just the right amount of softness and the crunch.

From a selection of salads, the Thai Lotus Stem was the one that stood out with it’s subtle flavour of lemongrass and a hint of chilli sauce.

The Arabic starters comprised of juicy and succulent creole cottage sticks garnished with Arabic spices and tender Turkish garlic chicken with sumac powder.

The Indian coastal spread comprising of kozhi chop vattichadu, pall katti melugu varuwal,  mutton coconut flakes and prawn amongst many others is as authentic as authentic can get. Maybe the appams could have been a little softer.

To finish off the meal were the desserts which you can totally drool on. From coffee cream brulee to caramelized banana cake to chocolate cappuccino puff, each had it’s distinct taste. Not to forget that all ingredients including ice creams are made in house.

Our Verdict: 7 kitchens might just be a little too much for our palette but certainly leaves one spoilt for choices. Each of the kitchen is maintained separately, retaining the distinct flavour of the cuisine. The ambiance and hospitality of the place is it’s hallmark. Despite being a stand alone property, Setz parallels any of the restaurant at a 5 star property. It is every bit value for money. The buffets and Sunday brunch are a must visit.

Price

Meal for two- Rs. 2500 approx

Rs. 1375+TAXLunch (Mon-Sat)

Address

 3rd Floor, DLF Emporio Mall, Nelson Mandela Marg, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi
