China Garden

Rest : China Garden
Meal : Dinner
Loc : Om Chambers, Kemps Corner

With the wives out of action, my kid brother and i got together for dinner and since we were too tired to go too far, we took the 5 min drive and dove straight into what is arguably the best ChIndian restaurant anywhere.

They have been around forever and are quite good at what they do. i have grown up around a few Chinese joints and China Garden was always the special one you went to for celebrations. 
Even on a Thursday night at 8.30 they were reasonably full which is good to see.

One of our standard starters are the onion pancakes, served with a dipping sauce, which we conveniently ignored.  Deadly crisp, these were just so good !

Fried wontons, again, very good but in hindsight we should have gone for a dim sum or a steamed wonton.. fried is just way too much like the onion pancake.

The Kung Pao Paneer was just brilliant, loved it. it does not get more Indo-Chinese than this.

Since it was just the two of us, they recommended a half portion of Noodles instead of a full which was a good idea, as we just about the right size.

Overall, the restaurant continues to kick ass, the food was sterling, no complaints what so ever. Perhaps i would like to try some new things next time, the service is warm and friendly, especially if you are a regular.

Food : 9/10
Service : 8/10
Damage : 1200 for two.

china Garden was such an institution once. The crackers look great. Half portion a great suggestion

the world has obviously changed from the mid eighties.. more things happening cuisine wise but CG is still a special place, memories wise for us.

Food has not changed much either. Stellar if you are willing to forgive the localisation.
