A SLICE OF SHANGHAI IN KOLKATA!May 29, 2013
Rating: 3 out of 5
The restaurant Shanghai Street is not very difficult to find. It is situated very near Southern Avenue Swimming Club. The restaurant makes all the effort to serve good quality and tasty food. However important factors like lack of hygiene and cleanliness as well as proper sitting arrangements can and will turn off many diners. In spite of these glaring negatives, the tasty food will no doubt make up for them. Food being offered here are affordable. The service is efficient and fast, while the ambience is average and ordinary.
Beginning with their starters, both the veg and non veg sections contain some tasty surprises. Popular items to be had from this place are their spring chicken, Hunan chilli pork, golden fried prawn, crispy chilli baby corn and chicken lollipops. Even their momo options both fried and steamed are excellent and scrumptious items. Likewise, their Chinese buns options (Tai po) are delightful dim sum preparations.
For the main course, the veg side dishes that one can try here are veg Manchurian, stir fried veg and mushroom tossed in black bean sauce. The vegetables are not only delicious but fresh and crunchy as well. Equally well prepared are their non veg side dishes like tsing hoi chicken, Sichuan pork, tai chi lamb and Cantonese prawn. These can be had with their house best seller noodle dishes like special shanghai styled noodles and Singapore noodles. The side dishes will go well with fried rice dishes like Korean fried rice and special shanghai styled fried rice.
Since they are inclined towards Chinese food shanghai style, the fare can be a bit on the spicier side. Nevertheless, the food can be tweaked to suit your palate. Their vegetarian offerings are seriously lacking in variety, and newer dishes need to be introduced. They should also introduce some dessert items that are unique to shanghai.
