“Authentic, Delicious & Totally worth it!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

We had gone to the T Nagar branch for dinner last week. We were a group of 7 individuals who were quite upset that alcohol was not being served even though it was mentioned on their website. But all was forgotten once the dishes started arriving to the table.

We had ordered the set-menu option, where you pay 550 (plus tax) for a set menu that will be served at your table. This includes a welcome drink, soup, starters (5 veg and 3 non-veg starters), main course (3 non veg dishes, 2 veg dishes, veg/non-veg rice and veg/non-veg noodles) and an amazing dessert.

The T Nagar branch does not offer buffet for dinner and this would be the second best option. Each and every dish was very well made and presented. They took a lot of care to help us forget the fact that they dont serve alcohol and it worked. We were just lost in the explosion of flavours in our mouth.

The dessert was the icing on the cake. they served fried wontons with honey and vanilla ice-cream and we just couldnt stop licking our fingers and spoons long after we had declared that we were done with dinner. Kudos to the chef and the waiters. They have definitely imprinted their amazing performance on my memory for a very long time.

One suggestion I would give is to reduce the volume of the chinese music. It may be a huge chart topper in Shanghai but it still is preferred only as a background to actual conversations. I would also suggest acquiring a liquor license although chinese food could be gastronomically conflicting with good old beer (im not that enlightened).
