China Bistro has launched a crackling sizzler fest which would run till 13th of Nov ’16 offering a wide variety of Veg and Non-Veg sizzler options ranging from Rs.325 to Rs.625 exclusive of taxes. Following is the review of these offering when a bunch of us went for Dinner on 26th Oct’16
Ambiance: If you are passing by road no.1 towards Jubliee check post you can easily see two giant terracotta warriors at the entrance. The ground floor area is mostly used for Buffet and the first floor for A la carte options. Lot of feng shui articles, pictures of warriors, a huge sword gives a depiction of the warriors they had in their army
Service: This was my second visit, first being for a food event earlier. The service personal were quick in all aspects, from the time they greet you politely at the entrance to ensuring that you are seated comfortably was looked at accordingly. As we were there for the sizzlers, the management made sure that the waiters knew exactly what they were serving so that the veg and non veg options do not mix. The service was pretty smooth in spite of the restaurant being 90% full
Food: While we waited for our friends to join we were served with Orange Basil Mocktail which was refreshing and much needed for the gastronomical experience we were about to have
As we were 9 people in total we decided to try all the 10 dishes on the menu so that we can taste each one
Chicken with 7 spice, Honey & Sesame: Sesame was a little extra than I had hoped for on some of the pieces and the honey flavor turned this dish into a sweet and slightly spicy one. One piece of the 6-7 I had was slightly under cooked but overall I loved the taste of it
Sintu Soy Fish: Huge chunks of fish with a soy sauce topping and amazingly soft. The thin strips of capsicum added a tangy flavor to the dish and must try for fish lovers
Prawn Cheese Gillettes: Prawns made in crunchy patty style with a generous portion of cheese on top of it, along with diced green,yellow and red capsicum adding more flavor to it
Roast Lamb Teppenyaki: The word teppenyaki means usage of an iron giddle to cook food, we had thin sliced roasted lamb which was so soft that it was melting in the mouth. Boiled and diced vegetables like carrot, capsicum along with spring onions added a nice touch to it
Moya Lobster: This was the show stopper of the night, delicious pieces of lobster well cooked in something they called as Dynamite sauce. It sure did explode well on my taste buds. If you are a sea food lover then this is one of the best dishes to try
Chicken Dimsum Platter: They were serving 4 varieties of Chicken Dimsums as per their festive offer, but the management decided to add fish, prawns dimsums to the mix as well.
I have tried their Veg sizzler options as well
Vegetable Dimsum Platter: It was authentic in every sort of the way, Diced vegetables with minimal sauce and spices, however this was bland for my taste buds (I like them Spicy) so had to add the sauces to change the flavor quite a bit.
Buddha Almond Sizzler: Boiled Vegetables (Cucumber,Broccoli, Red chilli Etc.) with skinless almond. This was the tastiest of the vegetarian dishes I had for the evening
Corn,Water Chest Nut Cheese Cake: It consisted of Baby corn, Corn kernels, Water chest nuts, Capsicum, Cucumber. It was crunchy as expected but I would have loved it to be more spicier
Exotic Vegetable Teppenyaki: This was just a mixture of boiled exotic vegetables like broccoli, capsicum etc. with sauce. Didn’t find it that fancy
All the dishes were served with Steamed Bao bun
A meal is not complete without dessert so ordered a Chocolate Tsunami from their regular menu
A hollow circular chocolate mousse cake with a chocolate circular plate on top is served in a dish and hot chocolate is poured on top of it which essentially breaks the chocolate circular plate and fills the cake inside. A must try for all the chocolate lovers
Yue Yang Lychee: A lychee flavored sorbet which is an amazing palate cleanser after this meal.
Overall: I would recommend to try their sizzler festivities at the earliest and hope that the management incorporate them into their regular menu
