This restaurant is fairly new in the business but has been very successful since day one and that is simply because of the relation of portion sizes to its prices. They serve massive portions of almost all dishes and they can be shared between 2 people at least. The bar and al fresco seating are really nice and pretty happening on the weekends. The service is surely good on the weekdays but when it gets too crowded, expect a delay of at least 20 minutes. The menu of this restaurant is a complete mixed bag and you have the signature dishes of all the popular regions in Asia, Europe and there is even Indian cuisine. You may want to totally avoid the Ramen which is nowhere close to what a Ramen is. The appetizers are great and there is enough choice, right from the ‘Sichuan Style tossed Paneer’ or the ‘Lamb Bulgogi’. The drinks menu includes some classics which are totally well made and served, the other fancy and fusion drinks are available too but either they are too sweet or lost on flavour. The mains on the other side are quite well done and most of these dishes are served with a portion of rice, noodles or paranthas based on what you want to eat. So, our pick is the 'Khao Suey' which is quite a star, it is tastefully done, the noodles are well cooked and immersed in the traditional coconut milk based curry. The condiments are topped on the noodles so you may want to call for some extras. You can not leave without trying a dessert here, ‘Banana and Bailey’s Brulée’ is one thing you really can not no miss out on. The other fancy ones include ‘Chocolate Sphere’ and ‘Chocolate and Oreo Cheesecake’. There are group discounts, Sunday Brunch meals, Corporate lunch combos valid on weekdays which can save you a lot of money.
