Big things come in small packages and that saying is apt for this place. A small place which serves delicious lip smacking Chinese delicacies at affordable prices. The place is run by Mahesh who has tremendous amount of experience in handling different cuisines and also associated with Swathi Tiffin Center outlets across the city.
Ambiance: Very little to speak of , 3 wooden bench style tables – 1 inside and 2 outside and can accommodate 12-15 people on average, A glass partition inside where you can see the kitchen and the chefs are busy at work making your order, A small table fan which takes care of all the three tables. Not much to look at but you can also park your car and get served in it or go for take away if the outdoor style seating is not appealing for you
Location: Vijaynagar Colony, Lane beside St.Ann’s School, easily visible on the road
Food: My First tryst with this place was when a close friend of mine asked me to try the food at this outlet as he had heard great reviews from another friend. So both of us decided to explore this place and try their offerings.
Landed for dinner on 18th Aug’16 and asked for suggestions from the waiter, as we wanted boneless chicken and little crunchy we were suggested to go for Pepper Chicken and for the main course he suggested that we try their Chinese Chopsuey with Red Sauce which is tasty and spicy, authentic is white which is also served if asked for. Got the pepper chicken and it was crunchy and flavorful just as the waiter had mentioned, then came the Chopsuey and then everything went in a different direction altogether in the best possible way. The noodles were crisp and fried properly, the gravy was piping hot and with enough amounts of spices to get rid of any cold you may have, the boiled vegetables (Cauliflower, Mushroom, Beans, etc) were soft and easy to eat and the chicken was tender as well. Since we had asked for Spicy version we definitely got our money’s worth.
Subsequent visits had me try their Chilly Chicken, Schezwan Fried Rice where the chilly chicken gravy turned out to be one of the best ones I have had in recent times in that price range, Schezwan fried rice was okay and had nothing extra ordinary to boast about but at that price range it is certainly a nice option
Place is 3 years old and expansion plans are in progress to increase the seating and move the kitchen further inside where they used to have their store room, addition of Indian cuisine and early morning south Indian tiffins & evening chat bhandar are also being explored.
Already a fan of their Chinese food, will have to wait and watch what they would come up with next which I am sure would be worth it.
