Woks - The Lalit - Food Review

WOKS, the Oriental specialty restaurant captures the essence of Eastern culture and cuisines through its food, decor, and ambience. Gentle waterfall, a quaint wooden bridge spanning a pond teeming with fish accompanied by soft strains of Oriental music set the perfect backdrop for an enchanting dining experience.
Besides an a-la-carte menu, WOKS offers Square Meal Box Extravaganza designed for diners looking for a gourmet Oriental dining experience on the go.
Located on the 28th floor, offering an excellent view of the city, this place gives you a really nice feeling of temporarily being cut-off from the hustle and bustle that exists in our day-to-day lives, and the view from there makes the craziness of our lives, even if just for a couple of hours, seem small and distant.

The restaurant has been done up in wooden interiors, adding to that calming feeling, with soothing music which instantly relaxes you the moment you enter. The hospitality and courteous service were no less than what you expect from a 5-star, from the moment we entered up until the moment we left. We had a brief chat with the sous chef, who talked about her passion for her job, and how important it is for her that all diners walk out satiated. We even got introduced to Chef Sharma, the mind behind the food at this restaurant, but he was a man of few words and chose to let the food speak for him. And so it did.

We ordered Waterchesnut and corn dumplings which were recommended by the chef and it's the hero dish of the restaurant. The Waterchesnutand corn was tossed with garlic, ginger and soy sauce. The dumplings were moist and soft and the filling was crunchy, served with 4 different chilli sauces.
The spring rolls which I had there can probably go down to my list of best spring rolls, I've ever had. It has the filling of stir-fried cabbage, mushroom and bamboo shoot wrapped up in popeye skin served with sweet chilli sauce.
Next up on the list was Veg Spicy Chilli Garlic Noodles, nothing special here. The dish was just average, it lacked the flavour of garlic and the quantity of the noodles was so less but overall a good experience, one should give this restaurant a try for the most authentic Chinese food in the town.
