A friend of mine recently told me about an asian restaurant, a sort of hole-in-the-wall kind of place. From the outside the place hardly looks like it’s worth it (shakla mayeswa baiza). The sign from the outside was plain old blah, it didn’t look inviting at all. Once we entered, we saw that its a small place with 4 places to sit (two 6 seaters and two 4 seaters). Later and after placing the orders, we had to share our table with a stranger coz we were sitting at a table for six, I didn’t want to relinquish the extra seats but it was hard saying no to a customer standing right on top of me, waiting for me to say yes to the waiter. You get the picture, the restaurant is small.. a la early bird.
^Praw on toast. not as good as we’ve hoped for. too much sesame & oily. Make sure to order the sweet chilli sauce, with this dish and other appetizers.
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but generally speaking, we very much enjoyed all the dishes, there were some exceptions though, like with the shrimp on toast and the shrimp cakes, they could be done much better.
^The chicken curry soup. They broght one big bowl (the first picture) and other small ones for each person. very tastey but extremely spicey. You might wanna tell them to tone the spices down, we didn’t.
^Barbecue chicken strips. Very tastey.
^The main dish. Green chicken curry. Heavenly.
As with every small restaurant the service was quite friendly and efficient, and the prices were very reasonable.
^Prawn spring rolls.
^Vegetable fried rice minus the eggs.
^ Chicken sweet & Sour. A big hit!
The location is easy to find, just go to the dasman roundabout and take the exit that takes you towards the holiday inn hotel, but right before you get there, take the right before the hotel, which will take you to a tiny round about, take the right then and then you’ll see a hotel on your right called the City Suites, it’s outside the hotel.
