The idea of some great Asian food is not only about flavours but also about how well it is cooked and articulated. The thin casing of those great dumplings, some really fine noodles and Asian appetizers, and a whole lot more. The restaurant has real fun ambience and the whole black, white and red tones are very well matched up. The outside seating is the one I look forward to every time I am here and it will surely be your favourite too. First up, order the ‘Crispy Lotus Stem’, one of the best renditions of the classic dish in Pune is the one you must eat. There is a ‘Kaffir Leaf Wrapped Fish’ which is a great rendition on the classic Thai steamed fish. The essence of kaffir lime really shines out bright and works well as it is. The menu is largely segregated based on the Asian countries and popular cities there are. This actually makes your life easier because you can simply head to your most favourite cuisine section and then order what you like. Try any of those amazing dumplings, they are really well-made. The other mains include ‘Fried Rice’, ‘Singapore Style Noodles’ and a whole lot more curries you can choose from. The desserts as well, are Asia-inspired, the ‘Pandan Mousse’ is a nice touch away from all the regular stuff you have been eating. If you are lucky, you will get those seasonal 'Lychee Cheesecakes' amongst some others.
