THE SPRING is here and Delhiites are beginning to venture out in the evenings. And capitalsing on this welcome change are restaurants hosting special food festivals. Not to be left behind is the The Orient House, Sahara Restaurant Complex in Vasant Kunj that is celebrating a seafood festival beginning this Sunday, and continuing till March 13.

The festival focuses at defining the current gourmet trend in Delhi and the house has a tempting range of Thai, Chinese and Japanese cuisines to cater to the taste buds during this fortnight.

If you are a seafood buff then The Orient House is the right place to be in. It has a seating capacity of 95 with elegant wooden interior.

To start with, the appetizers, the Mandrin Fish (sauted fish fillets in coriander sauce) for Rs.295 is something which will titillate your taste buds and will make you switch over to the main course where the festival offers quality seafood in exotic curries and sauces.

The Thai Fish in green curry with steamed rice is a great combination.

Other delicacies to try out are Slice Sole Fish in Your Style and Phaenang PLA (fish with thick curry paste). If you like lobsters then you will have to make your pocket lighter by Rs.700.

The Orient House is one establishment with the live Teppanyaki station. It's a traditional Japanese art of cooking in front of the visitors where one can view the experts cooking .

The food is cooked on the traditional iron grills. It is one of the few restaurants in the Capital which has the arrangement of serving live crabs and lobsters, fresh out of in-house aquariums and cook in front of you.

Besides, The House of Bamboo at the 32nd Milestone ushers the Chinese New Year with a food festival offering some appetising country chicken, duck and of course wonderful seafood recipes.
