To drink we had the Litchee Sparkle and a Watermelon something, if I am not wrong. Pretty nice tasting both of them. The usual suspects were also laid out on the table - chilli sauce, pickled veggies, vinegar sauce and made-in-morning kimchi. We ended up ordering two starters since junior insisted that the fried dimsums she saw was "what I always wanted!!". Hint - never listen to a 5 year old on matters related to ordering, you always end up with more than you can manage. So Kothe chicken and Smoked Lamb with Sesame is what we went with.
The Kothe Chicken had a nice crisp casing on the outside and the inside was moist to the level of making you look like you are drooling at the mouth when you bit through. But the filling was nice, not overtly spiced and meant that we did not have a stingy chef manning the kitchen. The smoked lamb was not really smoked but was a nice chilli lamb version with spring onions, chilli flakes, mushrooms, carrots and spice thrown in. The quantities were quite substantial and we were borderline full by now.
Junior wanted noodles and we wanted rice - so chicken hakka noodles for her and a spicy crab meat rice for us is what we ordered for mains. Now funny part was that our steward seemed really well versed with the menu and mentioned that the spicy crab meat rice was not spicy and that the Hupak chicken gravy that we had ordered, going on the description too was bland. Nevertheless we thought of giving the fire brigade a break on the day and stuck with the order.
The noodles and the rice were nicely done - about as good as any other place in the category. The Hupak Chicken we ordered mainly because we hadn't heard about it before. It was a white sauce based dish with chunks of chicken, chilli, green bell peppers and spring onions. There was a distinctive lemony tang to the dish and I am sucker for all this lemony. Made for a good combo. Since we were going all the way with the meal, dessert couldn't be left out and we had the Coconut roll with honey.
Warm rolls stuffed with a sugary coconut filling and with honey drizzled over. A nice way to end the meal.
Overall the service is decent, the place airy and good enough to bring in the family for a Chinese treat. This meal came inside the Rs 1100 mark and was quite worth it. The loos are clean.
Wallet factor: Rs 1100 for 2
