Zorawar Kalra’s newest venture in Delhi is a modern Thai restaurant, and we are going absolutely bonkers over it! The food at Bo-Tai is replete with Massive Restaurants’ signature philosophy of innovation coupled with flavours that stand out on the palate. We tried the Hokkaido Scallop Carpaccio and the Tamarind Blue Crab Cakes, and settled for Kobocha Custard with a Coconut and Pandan to end the meal on a perfect note. Bo-Tai also has a long list of cocktails that you have to grab. Go for the time-tested Od Fashioned, or take your pick from the bar menu - every cocktail is served in a container that's set in ice, so that your drink remains chilled, with zero dilution to taste.
