For the Love of Pan-Asian Cuisine: Chi Asian Cookhouse Review

When midweek becomes a little too much to handle, and  you feel like beating the blues with something that's yummilicious, then this feature will sure delight you. 
Food is a perfect stress-buster and if the food happens to be pan-Asian, the continent to which we Indians belong, and especially women who have a particular fondness for this cuisine, then rest assured that you are all set for the day. We say so as the newly opened Chi Asian Cookhouse in NCR is already getting the right attention by the food lovers. 

The All-new Restaurant for the Love of Asian Cuisine!

Pan Asian Flavours, the Right Way!

While pan-Asian cuisine has been one of the hot-sellers in the recent times, considering women shifting more to the healthy food side, not many restaurants have been able to offer 'up-to-the-mark' level food, especially when it comes to the NCR like Noida. But all's passe now, as Chi Asian Cookhouse is here in this region, it's all-new restaurant in the DLF Mall of India is quite refreshing and has a cool ambience.We visited the restaurant some time back to experience and review it's new menu, rather tasting menu. The pictures around are pretty much an indication of the good time we at Chi, in the middle of the Asian flavours and ambience of course!
Yum Tom Kha at Chi

Well, the evening started with Tom Kha and Chiang Mai glass noodles soup. Both very amazing authentic and worked as great appetisers. The little reviewer with us sure kept on slurping the second soup even during the main course. You see, there's something interesting with Asian cuisine, you can't fail to appreciate it if the chef in a restaurant is a pro with the real ingredients and cooking techniques. That's where Chi has an edge..

Even the starters like Korean veg, Samui Mushrooms & Broccoli Satay, or the veg Dimsum platter, they all are fresh and super yum. And, if you feel like taking a break,  the restaurant is offering you Chewies, the popular Asian chewy drinks. These mocktails feature jelly cubes in different fruit flavours that can be enjoyed within the drink that you ordered.  It's a good one, when you have kids accompanying you.

It was now the turn of the main course, wherein we tried small portions like Meal in a bowl Pho and Phad Thai (the little reviewer simply loved it). Even the small portions were good enough for two people. The meal in a bowl concept works really well when it's the midweek stress and you just want to step out for a good quick meal. Also, the ingredients are so fresh and full of aroma that you fee like going for the actual portion that can be enjoyed with friends or family.
Chi is a fresh breath in the NCR, despite the restaurant chain been quite a few years old. But somehow, you fee that the ambience is pretty much new and different from the original ones...

We finally ended on a sweet note with this lip-smacking dessert- Coconut Pancake. It's was a twisted version and the quantity offered was a perfect to end your dining experience on a sweet little note...

Fact File:
The cuisine offered at Chi Asian Cookhouse is primarily the journey of best of Asia’s street food cultures and the streets themselves. The regions that you get to experience here at this restaurant are regions as diverse as Thailand, Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam and China..
