For Authentic Chinese Cuisine
This review is also available on burrp!
I had seen and heard about this posh and hip place and was waiting to get there. Finally landed there for lunch on a weekend. Though I was a little apprehensive initially if I would get the table as I went there without booking the same, surprise awaited me!!! Luckily, the restaurant wasn’t much crowded :)
The moment you enter, the spacious lounge and the waiting area attracts your attention. Its interiors - spic and span, chic and trendy with the white and the crimson red combination all over. You would also notice some Feng Shui hangings all over. The curtains were also in white and red combination – white on the inner layer to allow the light pass through it and the red one on the outer layer to block the light. Both had the wooden support at the end. Whatever, it attracts the attention.
The moment you enter, the waitress greets you with a wide and warm smile and helps you move towards the desired table. All of them were in the red and black attire.
The main hall is huge and long, there are two huge cabin kind of rooms on the right hand side which had settees. It provided ample privacy for the people in large groups. I could see some corporate group, big family and gang of friends creating cacophony there.
Move ahead and on to the left hand side, you enter the other part of the restaurant which is a separate dining area by itself and looks very different from what has been described above. You move into a new arena there. One can here the water slowly falling on the chipped and straight stoned wall. There’s a small sunken dining area too. Well decorated and consists the furniture made of mahogany wood.
The moment you settle there and start looking @ the menu card, one of the waitress would come and ask you for your name and the contact number. I dint ask her why, though I gave mine.
We ordered our drinks Bronx (Gin Based) and the KF Beer. It was not just the drink, but the glasses were chilled too :) Cocktail was made to perfection and I just loved it. For the starters, we ordered steamed veg dumplings and it was awesome with the red and the green Thai sauce. Never before had I tasted such good steamed dumplings. The sweet corn soup was the usual.
For the main course, we had the chi-si garlic noodles and the butter garlic veg sauce which was mouth watering. Believe me, the best Chinese food I have ever had till date was @ Inchina. This was suggested by those waiters and they customized it for us by making it less spicy.
The dessert - Fried Icecream was sooooooo yummy. I am drooling over that food again…
They also served us the bottomless chinese tea - light black tea with mint leaves.
This place will surely on my list of regular visits hence forth.
For the two of us, the bill was 1000 bucks including drinks
Overall, a pleasant and a lovely experience. The service was commendable, food was excellent and the ambiance, just great
Definitely, a place worth trying... again and again… I give Inchina a three thumbs up
Inchina is located @ 31, Museum Road, Bangalore
