“Excellent excellent excellent!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I typed excellent 3 times cause the food, ambience and service, all three were not only great but outstanding.
I am a regular here and would opt for the dim sum lunch, whic is an unlimited lunch priced at approx 1000 rupees per head, not that steep once you go through the experience.
All the food is served at the table in a great setting with great cutlery to accompany the service.
There are loads of varieties and choosing any is just better than the last, ask chef Anthony and he,ll recommend hopefully he is there when ure being served,
Beside this all the other stuff like the Thai etc is also worn trying and is great.

“Worth driving all the way...”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

I have been to this place twice and the food has been great both times. The ambience in the indoor section is not very exciting but the outdoor section is very nice. They also have one are next to a water body with a wall of cascading water which is quite. The service is quite gud and the staff is friendly. The food was excellent. Its an expensive place and the portions are not very big. Overall a grt experience.

“A little piece of HK in Pune”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

If you need your dim sum fix I recommend Baan Tao at Ista Hotel. Selection is not huge but quality of food very good. Reasonably priced all you can eat lunch buffet at 900 rupees.

“Awesome food, Great Ambience, Excellent Service”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

We had gone to this restaurant with friends (no kids).

Ambience:
The decor here has an Asian theme and is very nicely done. They have both an indoor and outdoor section. The outdoor section has water bodies surrounding individual tables and also some gazebos are there. This has one of the best decors of a restaurant in Pune. Only drawback was that the lighting was very faint in the outdoor areas. This place is quiet and not noisy.

Food: There are a number of options focusing on Chinese and Thai cuisine. We focused primarily on Thai food and I felt that this has the best Thai cuisine in Pune. Panang Curry and Shrimp Dumplings are highly recommended. Note that this is an expensive place.

Service: Staff was very polite and extremely helpful. They attended regularly without hovering.

Tip: Would suggest that you spend an hour on the deck of the Fishbowl bar and have couple of drinks before dining at the restaurant
