Looking for a place close to home for dinner and something which is classy and serves pan asian cuisine.. well this had to be the obvious choice.
This place is in Bavdhan and on the top floor of Aditya Shagun Mall. The only saving grace of the mall I think. The first thing you notice when you enter is that this place is that its enormous. The décor is done tastefully, with statues and murals decorating the place. There is a wall that boasts the awards for best restaurant for Pan Asian cuisine.
3 seating arrangements they have, but we chose the terrace option. With beautiful sculptures of Buddha and candle lights all over, the ambiance is just wonderful. The restaurant serves pan asian as well as north Indian cuisine and the menu is extensive.
Seated comfortably we order drinks and an appetizer. Bbq cottage cheese in Balinese sauce. Quantity is awesome and so is the taste. You get hit of sweet and tangy flavor at the same time. The cottage cheese is soft, yet chewy. The various bell peppers add that required taste to the dish. Now wanting to try something different and unique, we ordered pad Thai noodles with Thai green curry. Unusual combination, but it was amazing. Quantity was again more than enough for 2 people. Where the noodles were spicy, the Thai green curry was sweet. Together they made an amazing pair. Try this if you visit here. Quantity was so much that we had to get half of it packed (couldn’t leave such a lip smacking dish)
The cherry on the cake came when the owner, who got know that it was my birthday came up with a blueberry cheesecake lit up with a candle. Such a sweet gesture on their behalf.
Now few issues that I had with this place-
Being a fine dine restaurant, no napkins on table. Instead had tissues.
Can work on their cheesecake (moist but the base was not crumbly)
For 3 drinks, one appetizer, 2 main courses, we churned out 2300 inclusive taxes. A little expensive, but then they make up for it by giving you good service and ambiance.
Verdict- a must visit for special occasion and some good pan asian cuisine craving.
Sorry for the pics being not that great. :(
