The Globe on your Platter
A visit to Kakapo is like a journey through the world, with flavours from all its corners being served right to your plate
Nestled in the heart of New Delhi's iconic Ambawatta complex, this culinary gem offers a treat to the well-travelled palate. A bite from anything of the menu will transport the food enthusiast in you to the far-flung corners of the world and awaken a sense of wanderlust. On offer are dishes such as the Peruvian Chicken Skewers- an amalgamation of flavour notes inherited from the fresh herbs of Peru and local spices such as cumin and chillies, Burrata Chaat- a one of its kind haute experimental offering from Chandni Chowk to Rome, melding the regional old delhi chaat with the Italian dairy farms, Pecking Duck- a traditional Chinese curation originating from Beijing and many more umami choices with vegan and gluten-free options available as well.
We love that the dishes are high on innovation, like their signature Kakapo’s Nest, with complete resemblance to the rare nocturnal bird Kakapo, the egg shaped dessert is a delight for sensory and spatial exploration with diverse flavours of banana, passion fruit, yoghurt mousse, soft boiled egg paired with kataifi pastry and chiffon sponge, Traditional Basque Cheesecake, Brownie, rose scented Ghevar with rabri and more.
Further elevating the dining experience, are the cocktails that are infused with notes of chamomile, lemongrass, hibiscus, berries and many more natural ingredients and flowers.
What’s more? All this magic is served in a beautiful ambience. Guests are welcomed by the 20 feet high glowing symbolic bird Kakapo, starting the visual journey right at the entrance onto the leaf-less metallic tree indoors spanning widely across 40 feet. Designed by architect and interior designer Aatika Manzar, the eatery is a great option for a romantic date night with candles lit all around the restaurant, making it the optimal setting for romantic rendezvous. Featuring an alluring al fresco dining area, Kakapo offers breathtaking views of the enchanting Ghitorni forest on the west, creating an ideal setting to savour exquisite bites and sip on meticulously crafted beverages and host an unforgettable sundown gathering.
