Have you ever dined in a restaurant so beautiful that you wished everything in there was yours? Say, you are in a pretty restaurant and the plates they serve their food on are so elegant that you are tempted to ask the restaurant where they bought their stuff from. With the new ‘Plum by Bent Chair’ in Delhi’s Aerocity, that is a reality now.

‘Plum by Bent Chair’ is a newly opened and one of the only few retail restaurants in Delhi where you can eat while you shop and shop while eating! The restaurant is decorated with some of the most beautiful and unique interior decor pieces you will lay your eyes on!

What is a retail restaurant and how does it work?

A ‘Retail Restaurant’ as the name suggest, lets you have the best of both worlds- it is a place that is the epitome of fun and relaxation. At a retail restaurant you can buy what you look at, admire stunning pieces and shop to your heart’s delight while savouring delicacies.

The concept is not foreign as there have been several such cafes in Delhi but the scale and grandeur of Plum is unmatched. This space is beautifully put together with pieces of furniture that look like an art gallery. With the stunning vibrancy and the colourful tapestry, Plum truly is a sight to behold!

Though not easy to come across, the furniture or the beautiful decor pieces are not too light on the pocket as well. If you come to the place get ready to be tempted by everything you see and be prepared to dish out the big bucks.

Not only is the furniture and the restaurant absolutely gorgeous, the food they serve is also top-notch and this spot is a rarity in Delhi.

What we tried?

We tried a lot of things at this eatery, including the Plumazing Burger, Butter Garlic Prawn, Prawn Tempura, Salmon Truffle Cream Cheese Sushi, Quinoa Chicken Chive Dumplings, Avacado Uramaki (Veggie Sushi), Ginger Scallion Lamb, Pork Spare Ribs, Stir Fried Prosperity Noodles and Thai Mojito!

The burger was solid- it was hearty and quite filling, the garlic prawn, not the belle of our ball were quite plain to be honest, though they were buttery and you’d enjoy them if you like subtle flavours. The tempura was much like the stir fried butter garlic prawn, they too were quite subtle but the crunchiness was complemented well by the sauces.

The salmon was good and flavourful but the dumplings were unlike anything we’ve ever had. The outer coating was made of quinoa while the insides were stuffed with sumptuous and classic chicken and chives filling, that can only be described as extremely delicious and satisfying. The lamb was quite tender and was juicy enough while the noodles were nicely fried and quite flavourful.

Amidst all the exceptional dishes, one that stood out the most, was the pork spare ribs- they were the real deal, cooked to absolute perfection. The ribs were the definition of soft and the sauce they were covered with, it was oh-so-good! You could cut through the ribs with a spoon and they would simply fall off the bone.

The mojito was a concoction of a virgin mojito and pina colada, complete with coconut and a splash of fresh mint and it was as refreshing as it sounds!

So, if you’re looking to have an out of the world experience make sure to visit ‘Plum’ and enjoy all the luxuries it has to offer.
