I rarely ever order soup but I glad I did. The ‘Tom Yum Soup’ is heartwarming and delicious and packs quite a punch making it perfect for winter. It also comes with quite a few pieces of shrimp too and for SR. 25, a delicious deal.
The ‘Spicy Shrimplets’ weren’t the best in terms of flavour, but with the accompanying sauce it can be a tasty snack though I wouldn’t recommend this appetiser.
The ‘Ruman Calamari’ was a good choice with the crunchy calamari soaking up the pomegranate molasses without making it soggy. Do give this appetiser a try!
@shareeka23 ordered the ‘Salmon Tajin’ and this turned out to be the best main for the day. It is loaded with mixed vegetables & prunes with a dill and lemon sauce adding a subtle depth to the fish. This is best paired with plain rice!
You get to choose your fish for the ‘Chimichurri Grill’ and I went for the seabream. The fish is butterflied and charcoal grilled and topped with a heavy helping of Argentinian Chimichurri sauce. It could have done with a little less but adds a lot more flavour.
The ‘Thai Wok’ is boneless hammour tossed with a ginger & garlic Thai sauce that tasted really good and paired with some plain white rice would be my idea of comfort food.
The rice we ordered were a bit too much but we would definitely recommend the ‘Biriyani Rice’. The ‘Tomato Rice’ has a very subtle tomatoey flavour and i’m not quite sure what it could go with.
Thank you @tackle.baks for your exceptional service and I look forward to visiting again.
