Anoushka insisted on having a soup and since she was already half way to dreamland, we ordered a simple miso soup for her and a sushi/sashimi platter for ourselves. Right away when the soup arrived, it was obvious the bowl had been rattled on the way to the table. The soup and the garnish was all around the edges and it did not make a for good presentation for a restaurant that was charging what it was for a soup. Of course little one did not mind but I cleaned her plate up before she had her soup.
The sashimi/sushi platter was average at best. The tuna, sea bass and salmon were not delicately sliced and very rough on the edges. Also, I found the temperatures of cold varying with each of the slices. The sushi was supposed to be a sweet prawn, squid, scallop and crab. I honestly could not make out any of the filling other than the crab stick (again something I don't like). The rest seemed to be some colored mash of sorts.
The absolute star of the evening however was the Korean Bibimbap, which we ordered in chicken. The dish was well presented, with the sticky rice, sprouts, veggies, meat all neatly segregated and topped off with a bullseye. The taste was also great and made for a really filling meal. The veggies and sprouts were crunchy and nice and the sticky rice was not the gooey glop that is normally served in its name. A bowl of miso soup with mushroom and tofu is also part of this meal.
Like Mainland China, you have Jasmine Tea making the rounds, but it doesn't come unless you spot it on someone else's table and ask for - each time you want. Little one loves Jasmine tea and she had a few rounds of it.
When the bill came to us, it was without the drinks added on. It took the staff close to 15 minutes to rectify the mistake. This brought the bill in the Rs 4000 bracket which I was not at all happy parting with. I have spent much more on a meal but have come out with a satisfaction that is unbeatable. Not here. Did not visit the loo as little one was by now asleep and its usually her forte. The service is prompt but the kitchen is what will let down the place.
Wallet factor: Rs 2000 for two
