Chung-Wah Opus

Truly an Opus Experience

this review is also available on burrp!
I was all excited to see the new board of Chung Wah flashing a furlong away from my place and the very moment I decided to hit the place during the weekend.

One needs to take the stairs next to the exit door of Subhiksha. There’s no board to guide you and give you directions along the stairs as yet.
I went on to the mezzanine floor, but that was the entrance to the Kamat Restaurant. The person there, was helpful and led us to our destination.

It’s an open terrace restaurant – that’s what Opus means, dimly lit with the jute based lamp shade. The terrace is divided into the family and the private / smoking area. The family area consisted to two, four, six and eight seater tables and the private area consisted of 4 seater tables. The furniture was made of dark mahogany wood

We opted for the two seater table which was very close to the edge of the roof and enjoyed the cool breeze thoroughly. The interiors had the red, white and the black combination of colors which is typically oriental. There’s also supposed to be a huge statue of Buddha coming soon with a small pond around. The crowd consisted of the families and the friends hanging out.

In our conversation with the waiters and the Manager, we realized The Chung Wah Opus is the joint venture between the Chung Wah and the Kamat Group of Hotels. The waiters were warm, welcoming and helpful. Looked like they understood our taste and suggested us on all those that actually satisfied our taste buds. The service was quick and prompt.

We tried the Tom Yom soup – spicy Thai soup with the finely chopped vegetables and lemon grass. It was apt as an appetizer for the breezy weather.
Fried Wantons with the veg dumplings inbetween was delicious.
For the main course, we had the Dan Dan Mein – thin Thai noodles which was moderately spicy. For the noodles, the waiter suggested the best combo would be the Kung Vegetables and we blindly went by his suggestion and it made our day :)
Food for two costs around 300 bucks!!

Make sure you have a good appetite as the quantity served is huge. They dint have all the desserts mentioned in the menu card yet.
Overall a breezy experience and I would surely go again.
