Owned and operated by a food enthusiast this place some unique dishes like Vietnamese Rolls, Raw Papaya Salad and one of the most juicy and fresh dim-sums that you’ll ever have. On top you can build you own customized bowls as well (read to know more).
Th Ambience of the place is factory themed, from the outside you’ll get the gist of what I mean. The interiors are very nice, though the place is small but the space is managed well. The furniture they have is of very nice quality and is a regular Cafe style one.
Their Menu looks simple but they have a lot of wide options and many things that you can play around according to you palate. The main focus is kept of healthy way of cooking and healthy food hence no carbonated beverages are there only cold pressed juice. The Prices that they have kept are little on a higher side but as per the Asian food competitors and quality its totally justified. The staff’s behavior was very good and an amazing service was provided to us.
In Dim-sums we had Prawn Har Gao (5/5): Full marks, one of the best har gao I have ever had. Also the quality of prawns used is commendable. Chicken Coriander (4.8/5): The filling was simply juicy and amazing, chicken and coriander go very well together. Must try for chicken lovers. Bok Choy, Spinach and water chestnut in chili oil (4.5/5): A unique and different kind of dim-sums, the quality of the materials used is very good. Pure and authentic.
Though all of the dim-sums were so flavorful that you don’t need any dip, but you had 4 options of dip Black Bean (My favorite and rightly spiced), Chili, Soy and Vinegar based.
Wet Chicken Wings (4.5/5): Juicy and perfectly spiced wet wings. Raw Papaya Salad (5/5): Amazing and fresh salad. Full of flavors. If you’re a salad lover then you must try this. Minced chicken Skewers (4/5): Minced spicy chicken on Skewers made of Lemon grass stems, served with sweet chili dip to complement the taste. Vietnamese crunchy veggie rolls (5/5): Very nice and full of freshly cut vegetable julienne. Must try. Tempura fry (4/5): Deep fried vegetables in tempura batter.
Also another USP of the place is that you can BYOB (Build your own Bowl), this is the best part folks. Choose one base from 6 options of Noodles and Rice, then 1 protein i.e. Tofu, chicken, Paneer etc. Then choose 1 among 6 amazing sauces, 4 out of 10 veggies and 2 out of 10 Garnishes. You can create you own bowl of Asia here. Go ahead and play.
Verdict – This is a must try place for Asian food lovers. Do try this place and have some unique and authentic dishes and ya juicy dim-sums.
