Restaurant Review: Ambrosia Bliss

Ambrosia Bliss is situated right in the middle of New Delhi in Connaught Place. This  property is barely 4 months old but has become famous for it’s food, interiors and fun filled events in this short period. It’s situated on outer circle of Connaught Place, just above Haldiram. The small entrance and a signboard give no indication about the lavish and huge restaurant inside.

There are three different sections, each one with a different purpose, design and unique charm. First one, Ambrosia is a fine dining place with a good amount of space, great decor, airy with good natural light. Bliss is a relaxing bar and lounge made more interesting with a huge screen, well stocked bar, Sufi rock live performance and other such events. The third one is a “small” private dining area for parties, conferences etc. which can comfortably accommodate 30 guests with space to spare. Each section has an outdoors seating area, it’s own unique design, ambiance  and appeal for different audience.

Ambrosia is a great place for relaxed meals with friends and family. Bliss is the place where you can go to have a few drinks, listen to live music, smoke hookah and just chill.  Guests in this section can order anything except main-course. The private dining area is for private small to mid-size gatherings or parties. As mentioned earlier, each section is designed to cater to a specific audience which is a fairly nice touch. When you combine all this, whole property is huge and one of the largest in the city. Ambrosia and Bliss sections by themselves are larger than most mid-sized restaurants .
