Vir's Verdict

3.5 /5

One of the five most influential restaurants in Indian history. The House of Ming introduced the spicy flavour of Sichuan cuisine to North India, sparking off the trend that resulted in the creation of a whole sub-genre of Indian-Chinese cuisines. But House of Ming itself shies away from the Punjabificaton of Chinese cuisine and these days, expatriate chefs flown in from China serve as authentic a meal as the tastes of the restaurant's clientele will allow. It's no longer trendy but it is still always packed out with power brokers, millionaires and rich ladies. The men in safari suits you see sitting outside are usually the bodyguards of the hotshots who are eating inside. Take a good look around while you are there. You should spot at least a couple of socialites, politicians, fashion designers, film stars, journalists or sports figures whose photos you would have seen in the papers.
