The Best Place to have Asian Food in Dadar with your Family ?

Located right opposite the famous Sena Bhavan, China Bistro in Dadar has always been on my wish list to try out. The ambiance here is quite pleasant and the service is polite and friendly. However, it does seem rather formal where you would want to dine with your family rather than friends.

I visited this place for dinner and we began with a round of starters and went for the Conpoy Fish Bao and Prawns Har Gao DimSums. The Bao was light and fluffy and the fish filling was delicious! Even the Dimsums were filled with prawns, Perfect and worth trying out!

Impressed with their starters we went for some more, Sea Bass in Cumin BBQ Sauce, BBQ Skewered Prawns and Fire Roasted Mandarin Chicken. What we didn’t expect were the size of the portions, they were huge! The Sea Bass was tender and flavorful, the prawns too were quite nice but the Mandarin Chicken was simply amazing, the best dish we had that day! Tender chicken with a spicy batter coating. Must try!

Filled with the unexpected portion sizes, we skipped mains and went for desserts. The staff suggested we try out something unique so we went for their Chocolate Tsunami and Guava Ice Cream. Chocolate Tsunami is basically a Chocolate Mousse topped off with Hot Chocolate Sauce, tastes good but not quite unique as I expected. The Guava Ice Cream on the other hand was supposed to be a scoop of Guava Ice Cream but turned out to be a Slice of Guava Kulfi with Chili Powder Sprinkled over it. While I like the combination of Guava and Chili, the creamy kulfi flavor spoiled the fun, but still quite nice.

The Cocktails we tried out were Insane Russians which was basically a Black Russian with Vodka and Kahlua, amazing as always! A Peach Bellini, mild and elegant. Irish Mellow, combination of Bailey’s and Bubble Gum Liqueur, not the best combination, I would prefer them separate, also the ice made the drink way to mild. The Mocktails I had were, Apple Basil Martini which was delicious, Apricot Orange Blossom – not a big fan of citrus and milk together and a Blue Berry Passion – a nice drink but a small issue with the glass it is served in, as the berries remain sunk like the Titanic at the bottom of the tall glass!

Overall the food here is amazing, the drinks could have been better and the service and ambiance make it a perfect place to dine with your family.

Traditional Home Style Malwani food at your Workplace ?

Well that’s true if your office is at Peninsula Business Park in Lower Parel. The newly launched Soul Curry Joint offers delicious home style Malvani food right from small bites like Chicken Sukkha, Garlic Prawns, etc to a complete Malvani Thali consisting of Rice, Bhakris, Chicken, ย Mutton, Fish, Prawns and the best of all, Sol Kadi!

I dropped by this place a while ago and tried out some of their delicious Malvani Fare and I was quite impressed. Chicken Sukkha and Prawns Garlic were the starters that I went for, both of them were fantastic. The authentic flavors and freshness of ingredients makes you forget that you are inside the food court of a business park.

Next I tried out their chef recommended Bombay Duck and Pomfret Fry, by far the best Fried Fish I have ever had! Tender and fresh on the inside and Crispy on the outside, Delicious and worth a try!

For mains I tried out their Chicken Malvani with Rice Bhakris. Though I am not a fan of bhakris, it went well with the flavor of the chicken gravy.

Finally I tried out their special Sol Kadi, from which the name of the restaurant is derived, a perfect ending, rich and bursting with flavor! Just like the rest of the dishes.

Soul Curry takes cafeteria and food court food to a whole new level, the quality of food is at par with some the best restaurants that I have visited. Strongly Recommended! They even have a wide variety of healthy food and all at very pocket friendly rates.
