Vong Wong

Rest: Vong Wong
Location : Express Towers, Nariman Point
Meal : Dinner
Date : 24/6

Ambiance : Vong Wong is the new hot chinese-thai place to be. Its a spacious restaurant with plenty of seating. Its done up in a minimalist, functional but still generic up market motif. Not a lot of chinese or thai influences in the decor. More upper end than ethnic.

Food : The menu has two sections,make sure both sections are checked out before ordering. We did the thai soup and appetizer and a chinese meal. The Tom yum soup which was fantastic, great taste, lemony aftertaste but overall a great taste. Too much bamboo and lemon grass however. Next came the appetizer platter for two which consisted of spring rolls (average) tofu in a sauce (average) corn based fritter (pointless) satay (good) The main course was veggies in schezuan sauce, singapore noodles, burnt chilly rice. The veggies were good but not fiery enough, the noodles were nicely done but the fried rice was just fantastic.

Drink : Diet Pepsi x 2 , Virgin Mary was just tomato juice.

Experience: The service is ok, overall they should get better with a little more experience. The food itself was great except for the really weak appetizer (avoid the thai selections) Overall i would recommend the place and would go there again too to see how they fare overall. However it is not in the league of a place like Golden Dragon yet. I would also recommend the owners daughter dress a little better and not run around like a headless chicken so much its not professional.

Rating Food 8/10, Service 8/10

Damage : 1900
