Oh Bao! – Slice of Asia in Delhi’s Defence Colony


Recently on my trip to Delhi, I was invited to review Oh Bao! in Defence Colony. Oh Bao ! is the pan-asian restaurant from the house of Moets. A landmark eatery in Delhi’s elite Defence colony market, Oh Bao! brings to the table a range of designer Sushis, delectable dimsums and much-talked about Baos.

A bright cheerful graffiti of the Chinaman invites you in a spacious casual dining area with 85 covers capacity, divided into two dining sections and a sushi bar. Comfortable seating, attentive staff and well stocked bar will take care of all your culinary aspirations. We met Chef Saurav who was very sweet and courteous. He prepared special dishes for us.

We indulged in In house specialties like OB Pork Belly, Tofu Aniseed, angry lobster and Glazed Salmon Bao which are a must try. The Trio Mushroom dumplings, with filling of three types of Mushrooms, and Crystal Veg Dumpling along with a specially crafted menu of designer Sushis kept our taste buds tantalized. There is enough variety for vegetarians too, so they need not get worried.

The experimental cuisine which reflects a contemporary take on oriental is the brainchild of Chef Saurav Bhatnagar (who has previously worked as the Head of Sushi Department in Wasabi by Marimoto in Taj Hotel)and restaurateur Mehreen Bindra. The flavoursome Baos dim sums and designer Sushis are something one cannot afford to miss as the new concept comes straight from the kitchens of Hong Kong.
