As the name goes, Pattaya Street is Asian from the word go. Be it the ‘you cant miss’ Happy-man Statue, the ambiance, the omnipresent Buddha wall decor or the Chinese lamps. Everything simply tickles you to expect a complete Asian fare.
The evening begins with a simple yet impressive menu. From page one till u turn the last one, each dish is explained in detail alongwith the country of origin. We traversed onto this journey with soups – Tom Kha Phak (vegetarian) and Tom Yum with Shrimps – both thai soups were bountiful of flavors.
Next addition on our tables were the starters – Corn Chestnut Roll (Thai), Veg Sushi (Japan), Cottage Cheese Thai Cake (Thai) and Chicken Yakitori (Japan). The corn chestnut roll and cheese thai cake got our thumbs up, whereas you could give sushi a miss. Although the chicken yakitori was average, you could still enjoy it with the sweet sticky black bean sauce. An Asian eatery and no dumplings? Cant be! So we dug into assorted dumplings of Chicken, Prawns and Veges (assortment was specially made to order, not a usual practice).
Our mains were – Khow Suey (one of their signature dishes), Assorted vegetables in peanut sauce (thai) and steamed fish in banana leaf (thai) – stole the show of the evening. Each of them had a distinct flavor and left us wanting for more. For the sweet tooth lovers we opted for simple honey tossed noodles and vanilla ice-cream.
A meal for two costs Rs. 1000, in a comfortable ambiance and attended to by courteous staff. A special thanks to their Chef Devraaj Negi (from Uttaranchal) for the splendid fare.
