5 Best Experiences at Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi Airport

The property is absolutely near the Delhi’s twin terminals – domestic and international. A cab from the airport took us 10 minutes to reach the hotel. Isn’t that a great deal? Imagine reaching a hotel at the centre of the city driving another 1-2 hour in the peak of city traffic.

We checked in quite comfortably once we stepped in at the hotel. The location of the hotel at Mahipalpur, right on the NH 8 is a blessing. On our way during the return trip from Delhi to Kolkata, it came as a bonus since there was no rush to reach the airport.

Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi is markedly known for its stylish, sophisticated and iconic hospitality. We picked the premium category room for our two nights’ stay at the hotel. The room was quite airy, spacious, with a large glass window overlooking the flyover. However, the unique part of the rooms were its automatic room controller, right besides your bed. The single smart controller has all your switches to control your room’s AC, lights, and other switches. This controller has completely done away with the need to have multiple switches for ACs, lights that one finds in other hotels.

There was a separate desk that is perfect to cater to your office work. Simply plug-in your laptop and attend all your important office mails.

Additionally, we learnt about Radisson Blu One Touch app that puts all hotel services and key information about the local area right there at your fingertips. Radisson Blu’s smart, custom built innovation accesses the Internet via your smartphone, tablet or laptop. Making it so fast and easy to:

Order room service – or take a leisurely look at the hotel’s menu

Request more pillows, towels, bathroom amenities and coffee

Request a wakeup call, late check-out or help with luggage

Book tickets or make reservations

Insane Kebabs at The Great Kebab Factory (TGKF)

Well there are hundreds of tales about the iconic TGKF restaurant at Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi that has served up succulent kebabs for nearly two decades. TGKF began with the inception of this hotel and has won many awards till date.

The hotel booked our table quite in advance knowing very well that it is not easy to just enter the restaurant and grab a table. Every night is a full house at TGKF and we literally saw it. It has been delighting vegetarian and non vegetarian kebab lovers for decades.

The ambience of an old, dilapidated and decrepit building once you enter the restaurant grabs your attention. The décor has been tastefully done to signify an old fort.

We were quite over whelmed by their choice of kebabs. What strike gold for us was the Prawn Kebabs and the Mutton Keema Kebabs. The Dal Makhni was a stunner of a dish. The moment we had a spoonful of it, we knew it was something extraordinary and the flavours were just an explosion playing with your taste buds.

However, the real winner was the stunner dessert at the end of the buffet. The specially curated Rabri and Jalebi delights you to yet another level of culinary bliss. Though we would love to give full marks to the stellar menu, the icing on the top goes to the dessert. Miss the dessert at your own risk.

We have heard so much about the award winning Thai restaurant – Neung Roi. The delicacies that were rustled up for our dinner were simply outstanding. The dishes were simply devilishly delicious, authentic and representative of flavours from Southern Thailand. However, they also rustle up cuisine from other parts of Thailand.
