An evocative dining experience with ambient vibes, Ophelia-Delhi’s favorite bar, is tucked away in a cozy corner of The Ashok hotel in Central Delhi. The place has been revamped and relaunched, sure to transport guests to the serene wildness of Africa and provide an immersive experience of the lush green forests and safari.
Owned by Akshay Anand and Ashish Begwani, Ophelia was started back in 2019, by giving a new meaning to old-school glamor and a grandeur dining experience. This opulent restaurant chain has been awarded ‘The Best Luxurious Lounge Bar 2021’ and ‘The Concept Lounge of the Year 2020’ by Times Food & Nightlife Awards. Making it a perfect place for lunches, drunches, and dinners.
A pulsating high-energy place, the fine-dining bar now stands more inviting than ever, draped in warm, earthy tones and plush jungle-inspired accents spread throughout the serene rustic decor, a stark contrast to its previous floral and cool aesthetic.
Offering a lusciously tempting getaway from the bustle of the city, Ophelia’s unmatchable venue, outdoor seating, and exclusively diverse dining menu, coupled with its well-stocked eclectic drinks and cocktails make for a sensorial experience that elevates the everyday dining experience.
The truly global cuisine at Ophelia is the best of continental foods with a touch of modern sensibilities. Seasonal produce, contemporary techniques, and innovative pairings, while playing with traditional favourites, set the new Ophelia kitchen apart. The extensively diverse menu is an homage to the flavours of how memorable meals should be. From the heart of Rome to the fringes of Japan with soups like mushroom cappuccino topped with dill foam, truffle oil, and an umami-rich mushroom confit or the Shiro Miso, a tribute to Japanese White miso, green onion, and wakame, there’s something for everyone. The carpaccio, ‘Raw’ menu includes fine dishes like Yellowfin Tuna Carpaccio with avocado mayo, dill, olive oil, and Salmon Sashimi, lightly flavoured with Kikkoman and wasabi. Ophelia has also launched an exquisite variety of Asian and Mexican cuisine. With a wide selection of sushi, dim sum, and baos, the menu is completed with wood-fired pizzas, Turkish mezze, and kebab platters. The highlights of the large plates focus on Thai curries, Japanese Katsu, Nordic Stroganoff, and exotic dishes like New Zealand lamb chops and Chicken Cordon Bleu. To conclude, a wide range of delightful desserts like apple crumble cheesecake and Baklava sundae offer the ultimate sweet finale. The Head chef at the Ophelia- Omer Levent is there to take guests on a gastronomic journey; with a variety of flavourful preparations, that make every experience a memorably wholesome one.
For all food connoisseurs who love a good wine-and-dine spot, Ophelia offers the ultimate blissful escapade- a slice of rustic amber-lit paradise in the heart of the capital.
