Good Thai Restaurant Near Me
I recently visited an amazing Thai restaurant near me, Ziu, Sangam Courtyard, New Delhi.
Ziu is a progressive Thai restaurant by Chef Gurmehar Sethi.
True to its meaning, Ziu has been successful in serving “cultivated” exotic dishes, which maintain a perfect balance between the traditional and the modern.
Ziu is a breath of fresh air in the modern dining food industry and I can assure you, you wouldn’t regret going. The food is light, aromatic and flavourful.

WHAT DID I EAT?
One of the perks of being a food blogger is that you get to eat a lot of food- both good and bad. Fortunately, Ziu put its best foot forward and I got to taste some really delicious food.

Mouth-watering, isn’t it?
After looking at this long list of dishes, it’s only fair if I pick out the ones I think stood out and are a must try.
SOM TAM SALAD
Imagine the best Som Tam Salad you ever had, the crunchy raw papaya mixed with lime dressing and peanuts. Now imagine having even better.
Chef Gurmehar has a different take on this traditional Thai salad and the result is outstanding. I couldn’t resist munching on it throughout the meal. It’s fried but it’s very light and is a must, must try.
These little crispy cups were a vision to look at and the taste did justice to its presentation. The mix of peanuts, Asian greens went well with the palm sugar dressing and the bed of crispy greens (I sprinkled them over the cups).

KHAO TANG GAI YANG
They served two portions of each, both tofu (left) and chicken (right). I love chicken as well as tofu and can’t decide which one was better.
Just like the two dishes I have mentioned above, this one too is crisp and I would suggest that you order either this or the crispy cups along Som Tam.
Now, this is something I was really excited to try.
I wanted to know how a Chicken Creme Brûlée would taste like and it is a signature dish, I thought it was worth the risk and I wasn’t let down.
Do keep in mind that it turns a little salty if not eaten when hot.
Burnt Garlic Rice is worth ordering if you wish to try something other than steamed jasmine rice and fried rice.
It goes well with the Red Thai curry and could be ordered as a combination.
Veg Hokkien Noodles and Chicken Kraprow taste good individually but there’s too much going on if ordered together.
Why I liked these the most was because they were innovative and not something every restaurant has on their menu.
Other dishes were equally tasty but as I said earlier, they stood out for many reasons.

Liked the photos? Want to know which Camera lens do I use to click photographs?
Originally it is served deconstructed but this dish is, as I like to call it, a refreshing “Thai Paan”.
Note: This was a special menu that I ordered. You can ask your server to help you with the menu if you wish to try a variety of dishes.
I personally would go back again because of the welcoming energy that fills the place, all thanks to their staff.
It’s them who make it more worthwhile. I had a great time interacting with them, especially Mr. Ahluwalia, the General Manager of Ziu Restaurant.

About The Author
Kamalika Anand, 20. Expressing my love for food in the most clichéd way possible here. Food makes me happy. It has managed to keep me engaged and excited throughout, unlike all other hobbies I’ve had since childhood. I believe one can create magic in a kitchen with a handful of ingredients or simply by being open to tasting all kinds of food the world has to offer, starting now. I hope through this blog, none of its readers ever have to sit in a cafe or a restaurant in Delhi, flipping through a menu card, unable to decide what to order.
