I am really happy to have visited this place.The ambiance , the cozy interior , the huge wall depicting the Chinese lanterns and above all the food –  I loved them all.

This place is opened by an acclaimed Chef Surajit Ghara who was connected with Lemon Tree Premier, Zuri White Sand Resorts , Varca & many more logos .This is his own venture where he wanted to bring quality food in wallet friendly state to his diners. Currently he is also working on a new menu that will have European and Asian recipes in 40:60 ratio.

Beverages :

When it comes to beverages currently they don’t have any alcoholic drink.However they have quite a few interesting mocktails, like :

Blueberry Camomile Martini

Cranberry Mojito

Lemon Basil Margarita (must try)

Pomegranate Dill Spritzer (try it)

Apple Cider Tom Yum(my favourite)

They also serve a non-alcoholic beer.I tried the same and found it refreshing.

Desserts :

In desserts we could only try two – given that we were already full. We tried the Cheese cake with raspberry coulis and whole wheat marie (its an acquired taste, personally speaking – once you start you cant just stop).
