Last week I have been to the recently launched ‘China Bistro’ for a weekday lunch and had a delightful experience there. The sad part is that a favorite pub of mine- ‘Glocal’ has been closed down and China Bistro (which is from the same management) opened up in this space. Located in one of the busiest roads in 12th Main, China Bistro is a good option for Pan-Asian food lovers; and their VFM buffet menu is something which can grab any customer’s attention. They are going to launch ‘China Lounge’ this week on the first floor exclusively for the party lovers.
My foodie friend and I met over a quick lunch and we ordered food from their ‘a lá carte’ menu. I love the fact that restaurants started exploring more and more interesting ingredients for their bar menu. This not only adds charm to any drink but also makes you feel so good. I ordered Vodka – Pomegranate drink named ‘Pomme’s cup’ which had interesting Asian flavors. After tasting this drink, I am sure that this place will be a good option for drinks.
Here are the dishes we savored –Spicy Som Tam Salad (ordered veg as my friend is a pure vegetarian), Konjeenaro (Crispy fried vegetables); colorful and well presented Dim sums - ‘Pak Choi and Shiitake Mushroom’ and ‘Ginger Chicken Jiaozi’; Zing Ping Swing Roll (Deep fried Spinach and Cheese roll coated with vermicelli) and Aromatic Crispy Duck Roll from the spring roll menu.
For the main course, we tried the ‘Corn Water Chestnut and Potato, Vegetable Thai Green Curry, wok tossed Prawns in Szechuan Chilli Oil and flavorful Lotus leaf wrapped rice. Both the appetizers and main course were really good that we polished off everything within no time.
For desserts, we ordered a Matcha Green Tea Tiramisu and Darsaan Cheese Cake with crispy honey noodles and vanilla ice cream. Unfortunately, the desserts we ordered were very disappointing. We conveyed the same to the management as well.
The restaurant service was quick and the staffs were very polite. Overall I enjoyed my dining experience (except the desserts part) at China Bistro and would love to visit again as I love Pan Asian cuisine <3
