Description: Using the freshest ingredients, ThaiChi, on the first floor, sends diners on a journey to the Chinese provinces of Sichuan and Canton, as well as the colourful shores of Thailand.

This maybe the best restaurant in Amritsar but…let's just take a look at this.

What's good

Atmosphere - located in the Hyatt Hotel the restaurant is well appointed and looks stunning. Filled with Thai and Chinese decor it has a very authentic feel.

Service - the service was very good, attentive yet not too much and always courteous.

The Menu - was well balanced from thai phad to sweet and sour soup, from chilli prawns to mussaman curry. A well balanced menu

But the food was average…. I know that this is a matter of taste( literally) but this was our experience. We ordered the hot sizhuan soup and the spicy mushroom soup. The sizhuan soup was pleasant but lacked chillies and the biting sourness of this dish and the mushroom soup was OK. We then ordered the chicken with dry chillis and the sweet and sour pork. Again bot these dishes were disappointing. The sweet and sour pork lack real taste and hadn't been near China recently and the dry chicken was fine but had little in the way of chilli taste attached to it.

It may be that this is the way that the residents and visitors like their food but the essence of Thai and Chinese food is the balance of heat and spice, the subtle of flavours all of which were missing here. The food was acceptable. We had a bottle of wine - a 6GBP bottle of jacobs creek that sold for 30 GBP here but that is the mark up in restaurants. The total cost of the meal was 60 GBP.

Hot and sour soup devine, we had pan fried noodles cliched with dry chillies they gave us kimchi with prawn crackers which were also good. Service Mr. Mayank Bajpai should be complimented for his fantastic service hospitality and also guidance to visit the Gurudwara which really helped us.
Would love to visit again for sure

WOW. We stayed in the Ista hotel last weekend during a fun trip to Amritsar, and we ate dinner in the Thai Chi. One of the best meals i've eaten in India (having lived here for 3.5 years...) The restaurant is beautifuly decorated and offers several rooms/areas to sit. The Thai+Chinese menu has good classics, and it was a struggle to finally decide given so many tempting options. We enjoyed the food immensely--- especially as there are precious few good Chinese (not Indian-Chinese, but real Chinese) restaurants in this lovely country. Ditto for finding good Thai food. Finally, the service was exceptional--- very helpful without being intrusive and hovering. Prices are higher than a little street dhaba, but it's worth it.... 5 out of 5-- highly recommended.
