A Pan Asian restaurant most notable for its dim sum and a generous buffet spread. The food is comparable to what one may find at a good free-standing restaurant but if you are looking for a gourmet experience you will be disappointed. However, what works for Asia Alive is its value-for-money proposition, which is best suited to a large group of diners looking for a decent meal experience with ambience. This restaurant would not hit any top lists with its unambitious approach to the cuisine but neither will you feel like it’s been a waste of money.
When you see an all-day dining restaurant, you usually assume there would be an all-encompassing kind of menu that would trot all over the globe and take you on a joyride of flavors to separate parts of the world. Nevertheless, there are some exceptions as well. For example, in the case of ‘Asia Alive’, you end up circulating one particular part of the globe. The restaurant is a great example of how targeting just one cuisine can work fantastically for the establishment’s popularity. Large groups and families throng to DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Sector 56, Golf Course Road, Gurgaon, where Asia Alive is located. If you are looking for a quick meal then this restaurant is tailor-made for you. They turn out the tables pretty quickly, which saves a lot of time.
Contrary to the 24X7 kind of expectations, Asia Alive focuses on one cuisine only – Pan Asian. The restaurant’s menu travels around Asia, adapting cuisines like, Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian, Indian and Chinese. It’s pretty popular for brunch. Best way to tackle the menu is to start by ordering yourself a boozy drink off their bar menu. Throw in couple of yummy nibbles to add that much needed salty kick. Start tucking into, por pia tod, ebi tempura, dahi ke kebab, kongee lamb, galouti kebab, Asian green dumpling, pork ribs, Thai corn cake and sambal goreng ikan. For main course polish off, paneer lababdar, wok braised lobster, katsu don, Thai green curry, kesari subz biryani, exotic vegetables in Thai chilli basil, braised duck, gosht nihari, prawn Thai basil, lamb massaman curry, khumb hyderabadi, long beans in sesame chilli and ayam bawang putih.
Round off the meal with an array of exotic Asian desserts such as, ras malai, lychee ice cream spring roll, moong dal halwa, kesari phirni, darsan with vanilla ice cream and gulkand gulab jamun. Those watching their waist should stick to the seasonal fresh fruit platter. Bill would be expensive, keep that in mind. Interiors of the restaurant are elegant and modern. While there is nothing imaginative about their décor, it comes across as timeless, classy and comfortable. Potted bamboo plants tucked here and there are their sole claim to Asian theme. Rest of the room resembles much like every other smart hotel restaurant. Take advantage of the deals available with your EazyDiner booking for a pocket-friendly affair.
