Masala Wok, as the name suggests, is a multicuisine restaurant which specialises in Mughlai and Chinese. So what makes it exceptional amongst the other restaurants in the city? Well, the fact is its location, in the same building as that of Hind Inox. You would hardly find a proper fine dining restaurant in that area. Masala Wok can rightfully be considered as the best fine dining restaurant in and around Ganesh Chandra Avenue and hence is the saviour for the residents nearby ! The most striking feature of this place is the lovely ambience. The colour contrast that has been set looks amazing. The best part is their food and their equal expertise in both Mughlai and Chinese.
I was invited here for a bloggers meet. The menu which they have currently is huge and diverse. We had a few items from the menu, giving equal importance to both the cuisines.
Pan Fried Chilli Fish – Fresh slices of fish delicately pan fried and tossed with onions, chillies and garlic
Chilli Garlic Prawns – Crispy prawns tossed in a homemade garlic infused spicy sauce
Murg malai kabab – Char grilled green cardamom flavoured chicken morsels with cream and cheese
Paneer Tikka Angara – Tender Cottage cheese cubes marinated with yogurt and Indian spices and cooked in a clay oven.
Bhatti Ke badami alu – Baby Potatoes Marinated with Indian spices and flavoured with almond, finished in a tandoor.
Crumb fried Fish – Fresh fish fillets marinated with coriander,green chillies and Indian mustard, crumb fried .
All the starters were excellent ! Even the panner one, being a vegetarian option was not shown interest initially, but later proved to be an amazing dish.
Chinese Main Course :
Slice Fish In Oyster sauce.- Slice fish delicately cooked in a oyster flavoured sauce
Dice Chicken In Black Bean Sauce– Dices of chicken cooked in a black fermented bean sauce.
Mix Meat Sichuan Fried Rice
Mix Meat Chilli Garlic Noodles
North Indian Main Course :
Murg Makkhan Wala -Char Grilled chicken morsels cooked in creamy rich tomato gravy
Bhuna Gosht – Tender cooked lamb on the bone simmered in a brown onion based gravy rich in Indian spices.
Each of the three desserts was delicuous, specially the toffee walnut which impressed everyone.
Overall Verdict : Must Visit !
