Noodle, Sushi, Ramen and more…
By: Moza Alkharusi
Located in the trendy Lodhi District, Guppy is considered one of Delhi’s best casual Japanese dining experiences. I was first introduced to it by a fellow expat. She asked if I wanted to taste some authentic ramen before school pick up… I was sold!
The journey begins as soon as you stand outside the restaurant with Lodi’s famous street art. I remember feeling very excited the first time I entered the restaurant, the promise of experiencing something new and totally unexpected. As you walk through the little courtyard, you will be greeted with colorful anime murals as well as an anime sculpture, no mistaking it is a Japanese restaurant! Comfortable seating and elegant lighting creates a warm and cozy mood should you decide to take your drinks outside. The inside is decorated colorfully with a sushi bar located on one side of the restaurant. The staff is courteous, efficient, and knowledgeable of their menu, ready to recommend a new dish or cocktail for your meal.
I really can’t recommend only one item on the menu as I have tasted most and was pleasantly surprised about how good everything tasted, from the Ramen to the sushi and the noodle dishes. You will not be disappointed. Food is always consistent and on point. Many eateries say they provide a particular authentic cuisine, but most add local spices to their food. On the other hand, Guppy, stays true to what sushi, poke, and ramen should taste like in every sense of the way.
Since Covid I have visited once. The restaurant has taken all the necessary precautionary measures they provide cute little envelopes to keep your masks safe while dining and their menu’s are contactless via a QR code. The food tasted just as amazing as Pre Pandemic. I can safely recommend visiting and enjoying a much needed night out with friends with yummy food, relaxing ambiance and great company.
Try and catch ‘Guppy’s Groovy Tunes” every Friday @8pm and enjoy some live music! to ensure you get a good spot best to make a reservation.
