It is always my crave for Chinese that brings me to the doors of every Chinese restaurant that opens up in the city. With the huge number of such restaurants, it’s always a tough job to decide on which on to give a visit. Mostly, I tend to stick to my favourites. But often I decide to give a chance to the newer chinese restaurants that are establishing their roots in the city. Well, it was my sudden urge for Chinese that brought me to this new little place, Overdose.
The time is post-pujo and I’m literally broke. So going through the newer chinese restaurants on Zomato and the ones I haven’t yet visited, this came to my notice. And, I immediately made up my mind to settle down here for lunch with a friend.
The location ain’t much difficult. It is adjacent to tea trove, Desapriya Park. The place is quite small, with a sitting arrangement of around 10-12 people. The decor is nice and around 2:30 in the afternoon, the place was almost full, which shows the popularity this place has gained in a small time.
After we got settled, we took a glimpse of the menu card. The menu includes both tibetian and chinese. The tibetian dishes include Momo and dimsums while the Chinese section is quite long and detailed. Since I was unsure of the tibetian fare, I decided to try out Chinese. The second thing is the pricing which has been made perfectly. If you are low on your budget, then this place would be the best option. The person who took our order was highly cooperative and gave certain suggestions, which worked really well with our palate. We ordered for a schezwan chicken noodles and a devil‘s chicken.
It took around ten minutes for the food to be served. Thus, service gets full marks. First came the noodles, followed by the hot steaming devil‘s chicken.
The schezwan noodles was absolutely spicy, enough to rock our taste buds and make us drool. Well, the spice level went accurately well with me. However, with others it might not work out that easy. It would be good if you place your spice intake before placing the order. Coming back, the noodles were tossed with chicken, fried egg, cabbage, onions, spring onions, burnt chillies, etc in a spicy schezwan sauce. The quantity was well enough for two. It was absolutely delicious and amazing, with generous proportions of each ingredient.
The devil‘s chicken, which was initially proposed to be a spicy preparation, was unable to match up its spice level before the fiery schezwan noodles. Shredded, sliced chicken was cooked with capsicum, onion and bell peppers in a spicy sauce ( perhaps soy sauce ) . It went perfectly well with the noodles. The chicken was well boiled and well cooked. The preparation was good but could have been better.
Overall, I was really delighted after the sumptuous meal. The bill was surprisingly, only 290 bucks !! The food was excellent beyond my expectations, considering it’s a new restaurant. Would definitely give another visit soon to try out the momos and others from the Chinese section.
1. Expansion of the place
2. Gravy noodles is missing from the menu, which must to be added soon.
3. Darsaan, fried ice cream or a few desserts that matches with the cuisine should be there in the menu to make it a complete one.
Pocket pinch for two : ₹400-450
