If you think Japanese food is only about sushi then you must visit Nagai- a top notch contemporary Japanese restaurant nestled in sector 29 Gurgaon to change that notion! Reina Nagai (All top Japanese restaurants are named after their celebrated chefs) has created an exhaustive menu catering to even the most discerning palates, her stamp on each dish of the 5-course menu. She adds innovation to the age old Asian cuisine making you want more with every bite. 

If you are new to Japanese food then their Tokusen on Saturday’s and Sunday’s is a good starting point. Priced at Rupees 1995, it is an all you can eat brunch offering a plethora of vegetarian options and a complimentary glass of wine. With its luxurious décor and sumptuous food Nagai puts the fine in fine dining. On the ground floor they have a sprawling sake bar with minimalistic furniture.

For starters we ordered the Kimpira Renkon- Caramelized Lotus roots smothered with sesame and soya. They look like cheetoes but taste even better! We recommend the Gyoza. These dumplings are plump pouches packed with rich flavours. For soup tom yum turned out to be an excellent option. The broth was boiled to perfection with tangy and sour flavours rousing our taste buds with every slurp. For main course we ordered Udon Noodles with Veg Tempura and washed it down with intensely made cocktails. The sushi was tender with a creamy texture.The flavours are delectable with a touch of Thai and Mexican influences.  More thsn the food, we were in awe of the presentation. However the service is slow and could perhaps be more attentive. 

For Dessert indulge in the dark chocolate and cinnamon semifreddo. The homemade white gelato ice cream deserves a special mention- it is silken and heavenly with authentic vanilla flavour.

The Japanese are known for their healthy food options, calorie wise menu and small portion sizes. So if you want to explore authentic Japanese food with a contemporary twist then Nagai is the place to be!
