FOOD THAT DOES NOT TASTE THE SAME TWICE!May 29, 2013
Rating: 1 out of 5
Not long ago, Pao Chein of Gariahat used to be a very popular restaurant for Chinese delicacies. The food served back then was authentic and genuine Chinese fare. But the food being prepared now is barely decent and tolerable fare. The prices that the restaurant commands for such poor fare are simply unacceptable. The décor remains much the same; ordinary and plain looking. The ambience is not something to praise about. The service can be clumsy and slow at times; often bordering on incompetency.
The dishes are no longer flavorsome and tasty as they once were. The fare is acceptable for consumption and is otherwise filling if you have no other option. To be fair the food quality is fair and leaves no room for complaint on a good day. Among their soups, the ones that are worth ordering are their chicken hot and sour soup, Thai soup and pork noodle soup. These are soups which are still well prepared and have great balance of flavours in them. The common flavours of their Thai soup (spiciness, saltiness, sourness and sweetness) are all evident and are very prominent. Similarly, their pork noodle soup contains a generous amount of pork and noodles that are long and thick. Apart from pork soup, they also serve pork meat for staples like fried rice and chow (both Hakka and gravy). They also make a couple of reasonably edible standalone pork dishes like roast pork, sweet and sour pork, and Sichuan pork.
Their vegetarian side dishes are a poor match for their rice and noodles options. Mention can be made (warily) of maybe dishes like Manchurian vegetables and sweet and sour vegetables. Though they charge sky rocketing prices for their food, do not expect desserts at the end of the meal.
