This Pan-Asian specialty restaurant at the city’s Vivanta by Taj Blue Diamond is an elegantly simple location to dine at, especially for those who like to wield chopsticks. The evocative name is reflected in its décor (with bamboo sticks lined across the walls and blending with shades of brown in the rest of the interior) and soft instrumental music is generally floating around. One begins with soothing hot jasmine tea here, to cleanse the palate for starters such as the soft shell crab (a crunchy, edible covering with none of the stress of extracting the sweet meat) in butter chilli garlic, or togarashi-dusted, golden-fried squid. The pork spare ribs with hot garlic are delectable, as is the crisp konjee lotus stem. The mains comprise several fascinating choices, making you want to visit again and again to try it all. On top of the list is the Peking duck, served with a delicious plum sauce, tender cucumber, scallions and pancake. Next up is the Kung Pao chicken, redolent with the heat of burnt red chillies. There is piquant sweet and sour pork, or shredded lamb with garlicky scallions; on the vegetarian side, they serve braised eggplant in schezwan sauce and delicious renditions of tofu. Pair these with crispy garlic butter pan-fried noodles, or subtly flavoured burnt garlic rice, and you are more than good to go.
