How many restaurants do you come across which serve a full course Pan-Asian and Indian cuisine with great finesse & make sure every dish is carefully mastered? Tawak is one such place under the supervision of Mr Deepankar Arora the owner (as well as ex-chef Taj Bandra) who ensures every table gets his personal care and recommendation at his Sector-63, Noida outlet.
It cuts right between casual dining and a fine dine where the interiors are carefully selected from all over Asia and stand out as clear winner with some very creative décor. The whole team is happy to serve you with utmost care and respect and it’s no wonder that the place is doing exceptionally well in about a month’s span only.
On taking a seat you are warmly welcomed with a fresh Litchi as amuse-bouche post that starts a chaos of food with Burnt Garlic soup which is a fabulous mix of shiitake mushrooms, Broccoli and garlic. Next up was Yam woon sen phak salad which was another great mix glass noodles, topped with few peanuts and Shitake although it was a little fiery for me; To my rescue was the Cantonese Fish steamed to perfection with almost nil spices for Indian taste buds but this is how the dish is and was really well cooked.
All this was good enough to get my taste buds on the food hogging trail and I swiftly moved towards Tandoori rolled paneer although I am a true brute carnivore by nature but I can guarantee that this super soft cottage cheese roll stuffed with itself would not disappoint you and so was the rolled chicken in Oyster sauce and cinnamon. Taking the flight beyond the neighboring countries was Bulgogi wings with a straight landing in South-Korea. The fare was big and the ride was smooth as smooth as Katafi wrapped wasabi prawns which was slightly light on the wasabi but the vermicelli wrap and the perfect golden crispy fry was nothing less than a dream come true.
The drinks are selective but they speak lengths about the quantity of finesse and time involved in getting to one “a must not miss “is the Jasmine Tea with ginger elixir with every little sip you sink a little more in some mushy drizzling world. Here on I was ready for the main-course to name the few great selections I would recommend shredded chicken pickled chili with coriander root & Thai curry (which is mostly like a litmus test in its class) for the Indian buds its murgh shah-bano which was a great mix of chicken cooked in onion gravy simmered with cinnamon and everything was bang on perfect here.
I enjoyed almost a gigantic meal here and i can sum up by saying that this is a perfect delight when you are on a hunt for Pan-asian or some fusion food and in my sight it’s the best place in all of Noida with the PLF (Pocket Loosening Factor) of 1300 INR. Do make it there if you can and you’ll come back for more. The management coupled with superb food can give a stiff fight to any NCR restaurant in its category.
