Urban Asia the latest Chic Fine Dining & Bar in uptown Jubilee Hills is a good place to have a Pan Asian cuisine with twist. Do do not expect to find your run of the mill Chinese dishes at this eatery. We visited the place for dinner on a Monday night as treat for my husband's Birthday. We were in a mood to celebrate but were disappointed with the visit. The valet service is good. As soon as you enter the place you are sure to be impressed by the sober decor in Black and White and have an entire wall in glass overlooking the city by night which is a great view. The hostess led us to the table by the city view and promptly seated us. The waiter approached us with the menu and left while we browsed the menu. We requested for the drinks menu and were informed that it liquor was severed on only weekends. This was very disappointing start to the meal. So we requested for the Mock-tail menu and were told they had very few options for Mock-tails, Fruit Punch, which was recommended by the waiter and a mistake in ordering it. Was too watery and lacked a punch. We order for Lemon Coriander Soup with Shrimp and a Crab Meatball in Manchurian Sauce and the Standing Promfet in Sweet Garlic sauce. The Drinks arrived in about 5 mins of ordering and the soup was bought in about 10 mins. The soup was great. Full of flavor and good filling portion. The only drawback was that some of the shrimp had their shell still on and was a little difficult to eat as you had to keep taking bits out of your mouth. The starters arrived 15 mins into our meal. The crab meatball in Manchurian were very dry and the worst again was "bits of Crab Shell" in almost all the meat balls again had to keep taking them out of the mouth through out the meal. Then we tried the Standing promfet which was great. 100 marks for it. The presentation was great and so was the flavor the sauce. The crispiness of the fish complemented the sweet sourness of the sauce. It was an absolute lip smacking dish. Totally enjoyed it. As the portions were large we were full by this time and did not order the main course. We finished with the captian's recommendation of fried ice cream which again was a simply superb and had a great chocolate fudge to go with it and good sprinkle of nuts.The bill was bought promptly and so ended the meal.
Though we went with the expectation of great food and drink we were greatly disappointed in both. It had it thumbs up for certain food but had more thumbs down and should really check their seafood dishes before serving them.And the biggest misleading factor was that it said a Bar and Restaurant but severed liquor on weekends only.
