The decor is well done with beautiful red and white couch and wooden interiors. The place welcomes you for fine dining better enjoyed with family or for a date. If you are planning to travel via metro there is no connectivity, however, car will solve the purpose better. I was here for the lunch and we enjoyed a mix of both Chinese and Italian on our table.

We started our culinary excursion with Soup followed by starters, main-Couse and desserts.

Soup:
Minestrone Soup: I relish my Chinese meals when they begin with soups and dim-sums, this one of those days.  The soup was tangy tomato soup with chunks of pasta and veggies. MUST Try!

Vegetable Wonton Soup: It is a clear soup with chunks of veggies.

Dim-Sum: I tasted the Chicken Shumai dim-sums and they were ‘wow’. The outer skin was thin stuffed with marinated minced chicken. MUST Try!

Appetizer:

Black crispy Mushroom with Honey and Tomato: The crispy light fried mushrooms were tossed in honey and tomato sauce, they tasted like lotus stems but to my surprise they were mushrooms. I am not a mushroom lover, but, I relished this dish. It is one happy appetizer for the Vegetarians.

Pasta:

Veg Ravioli: This was a classic Italian dish with cream and fried onion filling. The dish was pretty average.

Pizza:

Margherita: This was by far the best pizza I have had. Thin crust base topped with loads of cheese and tomatoes. MUST Try, You can thank me later.

Mains:

Balsamic and honey glazed Grilled Chicken with Grilled Veggies: I am always on a lookout of healthy meals. The chicken was grilled in balsamic honey and the veggies were grilled with salt and pepper. I enjoyed the veggies more than the chicken, because the chicken was left a little undone. It can be skipped.

Clay Pot Vegetables: This dish is a ‘MUST Try’ from the menu if you are on a diet. The vegetables are roasted. The variety includes – Baby Corns, Broccoli, Zucchini, Carrots and all colorful veggies.

Chicken Schezwan with Chicken and egg noodles: This dish was a perfect combination meal to have in the mains. The noodles were well cooked and the chicken Schezwan chicken gravy was a perfect combination to go with noodles. The chicken chunks were juicy and crispy. MUST Try!

Desserts:

Tiramisu: The blend of coffee and spongy cake makes my day. I feel the quantity should have been done better for the serving.

Honey Comb Cake: The scoops of chocolate brownie topped with sesame seeds with vanilla ice cream was the best one in the lot. The combination played well with vanilla ice cream.

Banana Toffee: Caramel and banana flavored toffee was too hard to bite. It can be skipped, for sure.
