So we did find the number, booked ourselves a table and landed there on a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon. Hidden above the Body Care shop in M block market, its not a place you may notice unless you’re specifically looking for it. We needn’t have bothered booking a table though, even at 1pm on a weekend the place was practically empty. A small 30 cover restaurant, it is divided into lounge seating as well as a few tables for formal dining.
The menu lived up to our hopes with some very interesting options in each course. The Dim Sum menu was divided into steamed, grilled and fried. And unlike all other restaurants I’ve been to, Dim Sum was not synonymous with wontons here but rather with appetizers. Luckily all 4 of us are ardent foodies and our order was proof of the same. The drinks menu is non-alcoholic as of now with some innovative ingredients like Kiwi and green apple. For the first course, we ordered Murtabak (curried meat with egg wrapped in roti canai – Rs.185) and scallion pancakes (Rs.160). These were served with 5 dips to flavour with, 2 of which were made with scallion and were absolutely lip smacking. The scallion pancakes were nice and crispy but the clear winner was the Murtabak. The pieces were juicy, spiced just right and left us wanting for more.
Not your usual idea of a Chinese restaurant. But if you want to experiment with oriental cuisines and try new flavours, I highly suggest you give this place a go.
For my part, absolutely great company that kept us laughing all afternoon, a sunny Saturday and delicious food – an afternoon well spent!
