Henry Tham

Rest : Henry Tham
Loc : Near the Gateway of India, Apollo Bunder.
: Dinner

Sorry for the lack of updates but have been fairly busy with life and work and havent been any place new in a while, been mostly old favs. Until last night.

Henry Tham is a place i have wanted to go to more often but just never ended up visiting more than once. My last visit was in 2006 (read) It is more than just a restaurant, with its long bar and its ambiance it offers the feel of a lounge and is quite popular as a watering hole.

The menu is Asian and mostly Chinese heavy with some Thai thrown in.

With dinner they serve these amazing boiled peanuts and we must have eaten like 20 little bowls. brilliant !

drinks were mostly DC, JW & Corona

Appetizers were Onion pancakes and mushroom satay with peanut sauce. Both were pretty good.

The entrees were kung pao veggies which although very good were not very kung pao in flavour, the other entree was babycorn and mushrooms in a sauce i cant recall. Both dishes were actually similar in taste.

Hakka Noodles & Mushroom Fried Rice were fairly standard fare.

Overall, the ambiance of the place is upmarket, the decor is minimalist and its a swanky place to dine or drink at. At the same time the food is fairly competetive in its pricing and i for one felt it was value for money. The drinks are priced on the higher side.

The service is quick but cold (which is fine by me) when the cheque came in they made an error (charging for a large when we ordered a small, not reflecting their happy hour prices between 7.30-10.30) they were good enough to make the adjustment which was around 800 rupees. I am not sure if it was a genuine mistake or they were just trying to see if they could screw us !

Food : 8/10
Service : 7/10
Damage for 6 with 3 drinks 3500
