This restaurant marked my very first sushi tasting in Kolkata!!!And it will be remembered by me for this..
It has a very interesting decor…The walls are adorned with quotes in one section and also has a bookshelf…Very few restaurants have bookshelves in Kol…For people not interested in books,they have music played in the background to keep you engaged…What impressed me the most was their table mat cum menu had a scribbling area,which made it easier to us to note down what we were eating!!!
Coming to food,we started off with the lemongrass cooler which I found a tad too sweet and also lacked the punch.
Followed by chicken satay which was perfectly cooked…What I loved more was their in-house peanut butter sauce which had a hint of tamarind.
Panggang-What impressed me the most about this fish dish was that it was already garnished with lemon which added bitterness and acidity to the dish..however,it can be removed for the ones who prefer more spicy and less bitter.
Chicken dumplings-One of the best dumplings I’ve ever had!!!Very soft and juicy..
Crispy fried spicy chicken was absolutely amazing!!!I would recommend this as a starter..
Tom Kha soup-The texture was amazing and tasted great as well!!!
Fire cracker chicken,Fire cracker mushroom-The mushroom was not very good…Chicken I felt was a bit overcooked(at least my portion)..
Crispy chili baby corn lacked the crispiness and needs to be a bit more spicy..
Thai green curry was well cooked..had ample vegetables accompanied by meat.
Khow Suey here is good…not the traditional one…their own version..so if somebody wants the traditional Khow Suey,then they should give it a skip!!!They served it with many condiments including shrimp so that we could make our own version..
Stir fried noodles turned out to be a surprise…Tasted really good!!!Szechuan fried rice had the color but lacked the spiciness…Pad Thai really needs work…
Amongst their sushis,the California rolls particularly impressed me more than their Crab Maki…Hoping to try their seafood bento someday!!!
Steamed Fish in Chilli Oil-This was the clear winner for me!!!The fish was fresh and just perfectly cooked..They should recommend this dish particularly to the health conscious people..
For deserts,we had lemon cheesecake which was not at all impressive,it was a bit too set and also the base was difficult to cut with a spoon…strawberry compote with vanilla ice cream was amazing…especially the combination of vanilla ice cream with caramelized sugar shavings on top…
A special thanks to Mr. Barnik Bardhan for making our visit memorable…and all my best wishes with him for the grand opening!!!
