For once you will feel that you are in a Japanese style Izakaya, dim-lit ambience but all the decals on the walls are about China and dumplings. There is outside seating as well but we much prefer the interiors as they are supremely comfortable. The service is super quick and even on the weekends, the dishes keep flowing in. The bar menu is creative and it surely has something for everyone. Most of them are inspired by Asian counterparts and the spices and aromatics like Yuzu, Lemongrass and similar others are widely used. Well, if you do not like cocktails, there are enough wines and beers which serve you well. The food menu has some rather funky dishes, those which are only a signature to this place. The 'Honey Chili Lamb Chops' are one of the few rather classy dishes. While you can pick from a whole range of Dumplings, the 'Mushrooms with Truffle Oil Dumplings' are the finest and quite generously finished with Truffle Oil. The 'Pan Fried Chili Fish' is the Chef's special here and the better part is you can choose between the Vietnamese Basa or Rawas fish. There is quite a creative dessert menu. We tried the 'Jasmine Tea and Dragonfruit Mousse'. You might want to get the 'Flourless Chocolate Cake'.
