Feng Shuii- Oriental Dining, Restaurant Review

Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment. Feng Shuii, a newly opened oriental dining restaurant resonates this meaning in the truest sense. Located at the upcoming Gallery on MG, which would soon host some of the nicest Restaurants, this one is surely gonna be a hit. The moment you enter the place, the ancient art form of Feng Shui, the artefacts, and the harmony greets you and takes you in the Chinese Era. The ambience is beautifully done and one cannot ignore the tastefully placed art pieces that reflect the true essence of Feng Shui. I mean you would really want to get up from your seat, take a stroll inside the restaurant, and just stare at these art pieces, they are so beautiful.





I somehow always feel that the place that emits positive vibes has to be good overall, and in case of Feng Shuii this stood absolutely true. Not just the ambience and environment is so harmonious and beautiful, but also the food is excellent. I was called here for a bloggers review meet and I am so glad I could make it.



Their drinks menu consists of fresh juices, some mocktails and aerated drinks. I settled for a coke this time, as I love the fizz with Chinese Food.


Chilly Paneer, Chicken Satay and Chilly Fish were served for starters. Chilly Paneer was simply amazing, perfectly done, neither too spicy nor sweet or bland. My son isn’t very fond of oriental cuisine as such but he always enjoys Chilly Paneer when I make it at home. We have tried Chilly Paneer at a lot of places, and most of the times it ends up being too spicy especially from a child’s point of view, but here at Feng Shuii, my son just loved it, in fact so much so that he didn’t have anything else but two servings of Chilly Paneer.


The Chicken Satay too was delectable and was served with a subtle peanut dip. Chilly Fish is my all time favourite, but again barring a few places I never like the way it is prepared in restaurants. The best that I had was at Drums of Heaven restaurant, but now Feng Shuii is going to be my new favourite for Chilly Fish, it was mind blowing. The fish was tender and yet has a very crisp coating, the spices perfect, and the veggies added to the flavour and crunch. I can back for it anytime, in fact my mouth is watering as I write this review.





We tried the Mushroom & Cheese Dimsums and also the Juicy Chicken. Being a hard core non vegetarian, I still preferred the Mushroom & Cheese dimsums, they were just lovely. It was such a mouthful treat, the creaminess of mushrooms and cheese made it so rich in taste. I am praising mushroom dimsums doesn’t mean the chicken ones were not good, they too were delicious, all I wanna say is that even if you are a non vegetarian, please give the mushroom version a try, you won’t be disappointed.



Main Course:

The main course consisted of both Thai and Chinese dishes. The main course was served like a buffet, but the fun part was that rather than we walking up to the buffet lay out, the buffet came to us in very smart serving trolleys that come equipped with electric heaters and can keep the food warm for upto 8 hours while being unplugged. These small little innovations and changes in food presentation make a lot of difference in ones overall experience.



The first dish that was served was Massaman Curry with Nasi Goreng. Massaman Curry is a relatively mild Thai Curry that in itself is an interpretation of a Persian Dish. The flavors of the massaman curry paste (nam phrik kaeng matsaman) come from spices that are not frequently used in other Thai curries, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, cumin, bay leaves, nutmeg and mace and this makes it very different. This paste is first fried with coconut cream, and only then are meat, potatoes, onions, fish sauce or salt, tamarind paste, sugar, coconut milk and peanuts added. It is usually eaten with Rice, and in this case it was Nasi Goreng. Nasi goreng, literally meaning “fried rice” in Indonesian and Malay, can refer simply to fried pre-cooked rice, a meal including stir fried rice in small amount of cooking oil or margarine, typically spiced with sweet soy sauce, shallot, garlic, ground shrimp paste, tamarind and chilli and accompanied by other ingredients, particularly, chicken. These came across as one of the best fried rice I have ever had, I just loved it. I can eat them anytime, with or without any gravy.



Next was the Thai Green Curry served with Steamed Rice. I have never been really fond of Thai food, and here also my perception and taste didn’t change. I did try some of it, but didn’t find it too exciting.


Fish in Black Bean Sauce was good, I tired it with some Veg Fried Rice, but somehow the gravy was little too salty, so inspite of being good, the salt spoiled the taste.

Hakka Noodles with Chicken in Sweet Chilli Sauce was good too. The Chicken was tender and gravy little sweet, but still it was a good combination with hakka noodles.




The best part is always reserved for the end I guess, this simple yet amazing dessert Belgium Chocolate, did just that. It was a perfect ending to the delightful meal. It wasn’t over the top, not even had a very fancy presentation, but the taste was just wonderful. Its heaven for chocolate lovers. Must try.



Service & Hospitality:

The staff was very very hospitable and attentive. The service was a little slow but I am sure they will improve it.

Overall the experience was just amazing and I give a generous 4.5 star rating, do it give it a shot and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Sumo Sushi makes Sushi available at the comfort of home..

Whenever we crave Sushi, we plan a dinner or lunch at an authentic Japanese or Pan Asian Restaurant, and relish it sitting in the quaint ambience of that place, but sitting at home, relaxing in your PJs and having Sushi is a thought that still doesn’t cross our minds most of the times. But just imagine, how lovely it can be, when you don’t have to plan, you don’t have to get dressed, book a table, drive the car and take all those pains to go to your favourite restaurant when you come back home tired from work, but still crave Sushi and have it too, at the comfort of your home..?? Sounds like fun isn’t it? For me it surely was. One of these rainy evenings, I was sent two boxes of assorted Sushi from Sumo Sushi and what better could have I asked for.


One box contained assortment of Veg Sushi- Avocado, Asparagus and Cucumber and each one of them was delectable, though I enjoyed Avocado the most. The Non-Veg box contained Spicy Salmon Sushi, Chicken Sushi and Tokyo Rolls and I really can’t pick a favourite from this, each one of them better than the other.



You must definitely try them all. The flavours just linger in your mouth for a long time and I can still taste it while writing this, and craving it too. So while I pick up my phone and place my next order, read this review and you too do the same. Enjoy!

Bumnanchi, the bar at Yeti-Unleash the ‘Jungle-Man’ in You..!!

If you are looking at spending a chilled out and relaxed evening with good music, a couple of drinks and some authentic Nepalese & Tibetan food thrown in, Bunmanchi is the just the place for you. Everyone is well aware of the Nepalese and Tibetan delicacies served at Yeti, and now Yeti has opened up an exclusive bar at the third floor along with a terrace and that’s what Bunmanchi is all about.


Bunmanchi Interior 7

With no frills attached, the philosophy of Bunmanchi is a well stocked bar, attentive service and some great starters to go with. Drinking at Bunmanchi gives you a feeling of having a good time with your friends and family in a second home.

Bunmanchi literally means ‘the jungle man’ and hence it restricts itself to the basic needs that a jungle man needs, food, shelter, clothing and the unstated happiness. Man after all is a social animal, and this feeling gets best stirred in over a gathering with a bottle of wine or a pitcher of beer.

They have a wide range of drinks to offer, though this time I settled for the good old bloody marry, which was a neat blend of all the ingredients and tasted perfect.


The snacks menu is simple and not very elaborate, if offers a handful of selected dishes to go along with drinks. Chicken Dimsums are a must try and here the dimsums don’t come with any fiery chilly sauce, but a very gentle peanut dip.


I also tried the Wai Wai Sadeko, which was a crispy and spicy wai wai salad.




I also ordered the non-veg platter, but unfortunately it didn’t have anything that I could eat, because it consisted of buffalo meat and tounge, but for those who enjoy it, please go ahead and try.







The crispy fried chicken and the fried chicken were really worth it and should be on your must try list.





The pricing is also pocket friendly, service needs to be improved upon though. I suggest seating on the terrace and spend a relaxed evening; you can also enjoy some sports matches on the huge screen placed there while you indulge in your drinks and snacks.

The place definitely calls for a visit and I am sure now you know where to plan your next outing.

Revisit the Addam’s Family at The Addam’s House and be Ready for a Spooky Gastronomic Experience..!!

“They’re creepy and they’re kooky,

Mysterious and spooky,

They’re all together ooky,

The Addams Family.

Their house is a museum

Where people come to see ’em

They really are a scream

The Addams Family”

Most of us are well aware of this theme song of the very popular series The Addam’s Family, and inspired by the same, we now have an interesting restro-bar in Gurgaon named the Addam’s House. I recently visited this place and I am completely in awe of it. The ambience, the drinks, the food, everything is just outstanding.





The menu is designed keeping innovation and fusion in mind in the true sense; I mean there are dishes in the menu that one can’t even imagine. For example, in starters we ordered Rajma Chawal Balls, now this was one of the most innovative dishes I had, I have never eaten anything like this, though a very simple dish, but I was amazed by the thought that must have went behind coming up with such a dish; truly remarkable effort by the chef to bring the simplest ingredients like Rajma Chawal and turn them into interesting crispy snack balls. This dish is definitely a must try.



The next dish too was full of surprise elements, it was called the Meri Wali Maggi-The Addams Way, but it wasn’t anything like the regular maggi as such, it was maggi in form of croquettes stuffed with shredded chicken and it tasted just yumm.


We tried Lamb Stuffed Chilly Poppers and French Onion Soup Shots. The chilly poppers as the name suggests were slightly spicy but full of taste and you should certainly give it a try.


Onion soup shots that are served with crispy onion rings are something that I am gonna definitely go back for. The soup shots were just amazing. I highly recommend trying it.



Next we tried the Golgappas, Chik in Balls, traditional puchkas served in molecular way stuffed with chicken bits and The Modern Classical Way, the traditional golgappas stuffed with maseladar potatoes served the molecular way. I personally loved the chicken version more than the vegetarian ones.


We tried Kulcha Pizzazzz the next, and they were simply mind blowing, I loved both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian versions of this kulcha pizzazzz, though the Farmhouse Kulcha Bites did have a slight edge over the Chicken Kulcha Bites, but nevertheless, its one dish both vegetarians and non vegetarians can relish.


As I am writing this post, I am thinking Gosh, how much we ate, I have already mentioned so many dishes, and I am still half way through.. J but that’s the benefit one has when dining in a bigger group, you get to taste a lot rather than settling for one or two dishes if dining in a small group.

So coming to our next culinary delight, it was the Horny Cowboy Pizza, and as the name suggests it was really horny 😉 go and try it for yourself.


Non-Veg Sliders (Chicken), Non-Veg Kebab Platter and Veg Kebab Platter were our last dishes on the menu (well there is a lot more for you to try, but for us, I think we already covered a lot).




Each of these dishes were truly delectable, though by this time my tummy was really full, but I polished off the veg kebabs platter which included mushrooms, soya chaap, paneer tikka and broccoli and licked my fingers off after having the fish tikka from the non-veg platter. There were Pulled Jackfruit Tacos and Drunken Chicken Tikka too, but I gave it a miss.



Coming to drinks, do try their signature drink Ghostbuster, which is a mocktail made of apple juice and cinnamon, its one of their best. A sure shot winner is their Water Melon Mojito, a perfect companion for summers, very very refreshing. Also highly recommended are their shakes, I tried the Red Velvet Shake and Hazelnut Cheesecake, and must say, they were mind blowing, smooth and very very filling. The most amazing part about the shakes is a small piece of cheesecake that comes along, one bite into it and you will want more of it.





For cocktails I tried Wonder Lust and it truly was wonderful, it had vodka infused with vanilla pods, fresh lime, passion fruit and pomegranate juice and an amazing pomegranate caviar topper.


Now saving best for the last, the desserts, they have a very selective dessert menu with just 3 dishes and hence I suggest you try all three of them, because you gonna be missing out on something if you skip any.

Winter Rose, a thandai gelato, Gulabari Cheesecake, a rose flavoured cheesecake on a bed of gulukand crumb and Chocolate Hazelnut Royal Crackle, a very rich chocolate hazelnut mousse with almond crackle. Don’t think twice before ordering these sweet sins, and you will rejoice them.






Spooky and Interestingly done interiors with some amazing music thrown in, will always keep you in an upbeat mood.

The terrace at Addam’s House will be your resort for a perfect relaxed evening filled with good food and company.




I am already hooked to this place and so look forward to my visit again, till then you and enjoy and remember to leave comments on your experience there.

Authentic Lebanese Food at Fidahh..!

I have been to Epicuria Food Court a lot many times but somehow I always gave Fidahh a miss, but this time I around, after roaming around the entire food court I settled for Fidahh and I am so glad I did. On their manager’s recommendation I opted for Harissa Chicken. Harissa Chicken is a kind of chicken kebab and it comes with pita bread, roasted veggies and garlic dip. The chicken marinated with spices was delectable. Pita bread was soft and delicious and their garlic dip was just amazing. The dish had a very authentic Lebanese taste. It’s a complete meal in itself and so so full of taste. I relished it like anything and I am looking forward to going back there again and try more dishes. Hence Harissa Chicken is highly recommended.

Go Guilt Free with Yoga Bars..!!

In times, when we all are running after a healthy lifestyle and striving hard to achieve it with healthy food especially, a healthy chocolate sounds like a relief for many. Courtesy Yoga Bars, now you can satiate your hunger for a chocolate by going guilt free and indulging in the Chocolate Chunk Bar from Yoga Bars. Take one bite into it, and you may feel that no it is not a chocolate, but trust me a couple of bites more and you will feel it. Healthy things are rumoured to be not so good in taste, but with Yoga Bars its different. I tried four of their flavours and loved each one of them, my favourite being the Cashew Orange Zest. The Vanilla Almond had a very peculiar taste of spices which I found a little over powering, but still it was a good deal. Chocolate Chunk Nut and Nut Seeds Crunch were good too.





Yoga Bars contain no artificial favours, colours, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oil and no chemicals. They are made using only wholesome nutritious ingredients.




For those who love healthy snacking, its one of the go to option for sure, do give it a try and go guilt free!
