Dusit Devarana is a luxury urban resort, the first in its genre in the National Capital Region. Set amongst eight acres of luscious greens and water bodies, regally columned verandah's, understated yet elegant interiors, spacious guest rooms equipped with state of the art technology and with attentive yet unobtrusive service, Dusit Devarana is an ideal abode to the corporate elite as well as the discerning traveller visiting Delhi. The food and beverage philosophy at Devarana is in line with the grandeur of its architecture and design. I walked into Kiyan for dinner and decided to sit indoors because it was still pretty hot outside (even though the outdoors were prettier and more romantic). I was pretty surprised that it was empty and we were just about the only diners that night with a few people waltzing in for coffee and dessert. The cuisine at Kiyan as you would expect is world cuisine but with a deliberate European bias. The food is definitely worth the wait with every plate being a piece of art with some of the finest produce, mostly organic and free range poultry and meats. The pork was also wonderfully cooked and the marriage of Indian spices with the ribs definitely had me wanting more. The portions were appropriate but I wished they had a pork rib or belly in their mains. I had the beef salad afterwards and perhaps because of my bias towards the pork I had earlier, although a perfectly nice, wholesome salad — I had a porky favourite.

For our mains- we ordered the Atlantic black cod in sweet miso sauce and the duck red curry with fried rice and an Asian green stirfry. The black cod, I learnt was a bestseller at Kiyan because it was light, healthy, subtly flavoured and left you enough room to wiggle in some dessert. The duck curry and rice were a great combination and the duck was cooked perfectly. I never had a thai rendition of the duck curry but this was absolutely sublime. We were stuffed and couldn't stomach the thought of eating anymore when the chef sent in two desserts: the signature toffee pudding and the purple passionfruit parfait with green tea jaconde. The signature toffee pudding was rich, luscious layers of toffee, espresso caramel and crème and incredibly decadent. For the romantics- this is the prettiest place in the capital and really impressive for first dates too.
