“Some great. Some ok.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

This place has potential. Let me open with that. I had four items off their menu, two starters, a vegetarian entree and their house specialty rice, burnt garlic and basil right. The rice and my peppered paneer appetizer, which tread an interesting line between an almost thai dry red curry, and the flavor I've come to expect from the local "Manchurian" sauce, were both spectacular. I could have ordered a double portion of each and been perfectly happy. Unfortunately, the consistancy was not there throughout the meal. Aside from breaking the menu up into the vegetarian and non-veg halves, some of the descriptions leave you wondering what sort of Chinese cuisine is going to be employed for a given dish. My bok choy and mushroom entree, which I had hoped would have a nice kick to it was monotonously bland. The wasabi prawn appetizer, another house specialty, consisted of 6 very large and perfectly cooked prawns that where then left drowning in a pale green goo of a sauce that resembled a a sweetened japanese mayo mixed with storebought wasabi powder. Once again, neat idea but not quite executed right.
If the quality of each of the dishes can be brought up to that of those that really stand out, I would have no trouble giving five stars. Despite the mix of problems, what this establishment does right more than outweighs what still needs work. Excellent overall

“Excellent food, a little overpriced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

Excellent Indo-Chinese food, excellent views of the city, especially around Diwali time. The soups, appetizers, main course and deserts were all excellent. Recommended if you are getting tired of the South Indian food and looking for something different in the city.
