Service & Ambience

IMG_4113

Cafe Asiana is smack in the middle of the busy hub that Hill Street has become, what with its host of shops and biriyani corners. You get some folks here on their lunch break and especially family gatherings during dinner. The ambience is nothing to speak of, your typical middle class restaurant, and the service was alright - our waiter was particularly obliging when we asked for recommendations.

The Food

IMG_4106

We ordered a 'small' Asiana Special fried rice for Rs. 525 and I swear, the big plate you get is enough to split among four people. The fried rice was rich with egg, veggies and prawns, wasn't too oily, and was pretty good.

We also got their hot butter cuttlefish plate (Rs. 700) and the recommended chilli chicken plate (Rs. 610) - again, there was a lot, and you could share these among three. We loved the chicken and prawns - both plates were tossed in generous chunks of tomatoes, capsicums, onions and chillies, and were pretty oily. The chilli chicken was especially spicy, the cuttlefish was hot and a little sweet, and the bit of gravy tasted great with the rice.

The 'Mango Zingo' (Rs. 290) or mango smoothie simply tasted like mango juice, so perhaps you might as well get the mango juice instead. We ordered the brownie sundae (Rs. 295) for dessert, which included two scoops of ice cream planted in the middle of plenty of broken down brownie cake and cashew. It was an interesting presentation, and tasted like your average ice cream and brownie - good enough, we thought, considering the price.

Conclusion

Cafe Asiana serves some pretty good food, the seafood is super spicy and the portions are big. Also considering how cost-efficient the place is if you take a crowd with you, it's a great place to fill your belly at.

TIP

Try their menu of healthy Vitamin drinks if you're into health food.

Shitiest service ever! Order was placed at 9.30 for a Nasi. Called at 10.30 to check and was informed that the order was despatched. But no avail. Called at 11 again to re-check, someone named Amaranath says there was no order as such and the delivery guy is off. Such careless and bull shit service ever. Btw, this is not the 1st time they've messed up the order. I recommend every one NOT to order from Asiana and to avoid this stupid place and order from some restaurant else where staff are responsible. Extremely dissatisfied!
