Velachery

Dimsum, Velachery

When we went here, We were the first guests for the evening there. The stewards were ever so courteous, they helped us with our orders, as it was my first visit to a proper Chinese joining and I’m not familiar with the foods. Being a vegan, I went for the sizzlers, corn fritters and vegetable dumplings. They surprised us with a complimentary spring roll, which was followed by corn fritters. The fritters were ok, not much to talk about them. They were followed a little later by the sizzler. And I must really say it was awesome. My girl, who was accompanying me, had been to a few Chinese joints before including Wangs, Wonton and Mainland China and her feedback was that Dimsum’s sizzlers tasted better than the ones she had at these joints. Then came the vegetable dumplings. They were something of a let down actually, considering that they charge around 185 bucks for the dumplings, they are supposed to keep more than 6 pieces or at least have a better filling. They were something like the regular Salt Momos we used to have at home. But of course, taste wise, they were pretty good, though not VFM.

Ratings:

Ambience: 4.5/5
Service: 4.5/5
Taste: 4/5
Quantity: 4/5 (Except for the dumplings, the other two items were quite sufficient for the two of us)
VFM: 3.5/5 (Dumplings took the cut here)

Overall: 4/5

A stereotypical IT guy with a typical love for good food and good movies, not so typical love for books, rare love for the theatre arts and an abominable love for such lengthy sentences.

Naturally, with such varied interests, I come out with highly opinionated reviews ranging across categories and mindless blah blah blah.

I'm supposed to be living in Chennai, but I usually live in one of the social networks listed on my profile, since, hey that's so cool yo ;)
