In a desire to explore Pan Asian cuisine, my search took me to a beautiful place in Raddison Blu Marathalli. Shao, an oriental cuisine Fine Dine restaurant, serves the best Pan Asian Cuisine. I visited this place with my friends on a Saturday afternoon.
Ambiance: The ambiance is classy and elegant. Perfect for a fine dine setup. As it is Pan Asian by theme. You can see Asian style paintings and sculptures as a part of the decor. They also have an open kitchen. I fell in love with the place.
We were welcomed with some rice crackers and kimchi. We started with Lemon Coriander Soup which had the perfect balance of Coriander’s sharpness and Lemon’s tanginess. It was refreshing and soothing to my throat. I loved it.
Sichuan Mushroom; wok tossed mushroom served with soy was amazing. I loved its spicy and crisp taste.
Assorted Veg Sushi was also good. I enjoyed it with soy sauce and wasabi. The Wasabi was underpowered. Still, I loved it.
Veg Dimsums, I felt they need to work more on the DimSums. They were good but would have been better made. They can work on this.
Main Course: We had Fried Rice and Chili Garlic Noodles. I loved it. I felt they serve the best in Bangalore.
And the show stopper for me was Jasmine Rice and Thai Green Curry. Hands down, this was the best Thai Green Curry I’ve ever tried. The Jasmine rice was cooked perfectly with stickiness retained and Thai Green Curry had the perfect ingredients. Kaffir Lime Leaves, Thai Basil, Lemon Grass all well balanced. I felt this was amazing. Well cooked and both dishes complemented each other perfectly. I enjoyed my main course and this is recommended.
Dessert: Date Pancakes, Sesame seed coated Pancakes were delicious. I loved it.
Death By Chocolate was a delight to my eyes and to my taste buds. I recommend it with Vanilla Ice cream.
The service was good. I loved the food and the place. I can say this is the best Pan Asian restaurant in Marathalli. Being a part of the Raddison Blu group, it is a bit expensive but the dishes are worth every penny. The hospitality was perfect and the experience was memorable.
