Here’s all you need to know about the 3 Indian restaurants featured in the coveted list:

MASQUE

Masque, Mumbai, founded by chef Prateek Sadhu and director Aditi Dugar, is best known for its tasting menu-only concept and focus on seasonal and local ingredients.

“The combination of a tasting menu-only concept, a focus on seasonal and local Indian ingredients and a striking dining room set inside one of Mumbai’s former cotton mills. Four years after opening, Masque received the One To Watch Award for Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2020, and made its proud debut on the list a year later,” the report by William Reed Business Ltd said.

The restaurant offer an array of delectable dishes such as french lychee stuffed with mango-kimchi gel, gongura greens and jicama, kholal with lamb neck or turnip, and more.

INDIAN ACCENT

New Delhi’s Indian Accent grabbed the 22nd spot in Asia’s Best 50 restaurants. Located in the opulent The Lodhi, Indian Accent’s menu boasts a tempting blend of global ingredients and techniques with the flavours and traditions of India.

“Indian Accent never fails to impress with its winning combination of creative modern dishes and warm hospitality. Season after season, chef Manish Mehrotra’s inventive tasting menus add an international accent to his country’s cuisine by mixing in global ingredients and techniques,” the report said.

Some of the lip-smacking dishes on the menu are pumpkin bitterballen with mustard and coconut, soft baked chocolate with fresh berries and basundi, wild mushroom kulcha drizzled with truffle oil and squash curry with paneer and roast potato.

MEGU

Megu, the 49th rank holder in the list, is a Japanese restaurant located in The Leela, New Delhi.

“Each of the exquisitely crafted dishes at Megu displays 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 specialty platters, such as the Chef’s Choice Omakase, offer the chance to taste some of everything,” the report suggests.
