Just Another Place for Chinese and Thai
This review is also available on burrp!
An ad-hoc decision got us here for the dinner. Its on the 1st floor of the newly built building and one can still smell the freshly coated paint on the stairway. Interiors is the usual one.. combination of crimson red and the off-white with the Chinese artifacts and the umbrellas on to the walls.
The dining hall was dim lit. The complimentary salad was as usual good. We ordered the Tom khim fak bang soup – Soup with a dash of spinach, carrot and potato which I felt could have been more spicier. The veg dumplings for starters was like the fried wontons in a different shape. Tasted good though!!
For the main course, I dint want to have something that could be too heavy or fried. So, opted for American Choupsey which had the sweet and sour combination and liked it.
Since, we were full, could not try the rice there. It looked attractive on the other tables.. anyway, there’s always a next time.
The Dessert – the most interesting one, I had the icecream with fried walnut and honey and my friend tried the date pancake with icecream. Both tasted yummy! Though they don’t have much choices for the dessert, I liked this the most in the entire meal.
The waiters were struggling to understand english. There were only 2 guys who could comprehend what we said. For the desserts, they took a sweet more than 20 minutes to serve.
While we were having food, the power went off and they did not have a backup. Waited for almost 15minutes for the lights to tunr on again
Overall, an ok place. One could try this if you wanna badly eat Chinese when in jayanagar.
Beijing Bites is located @ 45, 11th Main, 4th Block, Jayanagar, Bangalore
