I started my meal with Brown Garlic Soup With Silky Tofu which was consistent in taste and Tofu was adding an extra zing to the flavour. Creamy Potato salad with shallots, tarragon, wine vinegar was the best salad to start with whereas Poached Apple and Grape Salad with sweet chilli drizzle and crushed peanuts tickled my taste buds with its sweet and lime flavour.
I also dig into a wide range of starters starting from Hara Bharrey Kabab, Vegetable Spring Rolls to Crisp-Fried Rice, Mushroom and Cheese Cakes. Though Hara Bharrey Kabab were a bit bland but the crispiness and juiciness of Vegetable Spring Rolls made up for it. The taste Crisp-Fried Rice, Mushroom and Cheese Cakes was also quite impressive.
As the theme of the day was Chinese, the main course offered delicacies like Wok Tossed Beans, Zucchini and Chestnuts with Dry Chilli and Cashewnut; Tofu and Mixed Mushrooms in Light Soy and Young Chilli; Stir Fried Tofu, Ginger and Spring Onion Fried Rice; Hakka Noodles with Sprouts and Cabbage and Stir-Fried Chinese Greens with Garlic to name a few. I sampled a small portion of all the delicacies and out of which I recommend Stir-Fried Chinese Greens with Garlic the most.
No buffet is complete without Indian delicacies. I opted to try all-time favourite options Daal Makhani and Gobhi Rajwadi. The fragrant aroma and the balanced blend of the spices forced me to take the second serving of the same dishes.
Don’t forget to satiate your sweet tooth with Rum and Raisin Dark Chocolate Mousse. The melt in mouth mousse left me asking for more but my stomach got so full that it refused to accept a single bite of anything.
