Gong – New Asian Restaurant – Reviewed

 

 

​Sacred Chinese gongs are inscribed with the Mandarin Chinese characters called Tai Loi, which means, happiness has arrived.

 

GONG- Modern Asian takes you to a new level of happiness with its high energy ambience that is a contemporary take on traditional Japanese temple architecture and diverse Asian flavours that are prepared using western cooking techniques and presentations.

The menu features a progressive mix of Sushis, Asian Tapas, Stir Fries and Curries – rolled, steamed, baked, fried, tossed or slow cooked. The cocktail concoctions make use of fresh and dehydrated fruits, herbs, spices and liqueurs to achieve a perfect harmony of flavours.
The result is a perfect balance of ingredients and textures that are all a testimony to GONG holding the baton of innovation.

GONG is a venture of Speciality Restaurants Ltd, the company behind favourites like Mainland China, Oh! Calcutta and Hoppipola. MD Anjan Chatterjee teams up with son Avik Chatterjee, who’s designed GONG to oscillate between an elegant dining space and a pumped up, high-energy bar.

Ingredients from Thailand, Japan, Vietnam and its neighbouring countries jostle for space in the exhaustive menus. There’s a wide range of sushi, rolls and dimsums to spoil you for choice, and the long list of noodles and mains ensure that deciding what to order is a tough decision.

I was invited for the tasting some of their speciality.

We started with Amuse Bouche: The term is French and literally means “mouth amuser” It has often becomed a showcase, however, due to the artistry and showmanship of the chef, intensified by the competition among restaurants. They had a cranberry sphere Jelly type with basil crumble, followed by kaffir lime tofu. Nice mix of sweet and spice in one go.

Mushroom Cappuccino Soup: This was Smooth enough to start with and served hot with Extra finely chopped Mushrooms by the side in a small bowl. Very nicely presented. #MushHave

Sushi Rolls: 

Asparagus Tempura: A Chef’s speciality. Young leafy tips of asparagus, tempura fried to a nice golden colour and rolled into a chumaki size sushi. Avocado inside and are topped with crunch. So delicious!!

Cream Cheese Avocado: This was another gem from the Chef. Mouth melting Cheesy with Mayo dressing along with Asparagus and Cucumber were there for holding up. Rolled in Sushi rice. Served with WASABI, Tender and sweet Thai Ginger. #MustHave.

Dimsums:

Edamame and Truffle Dumpling: These little babies were tender soft, silky and shiny. Along with this to add some spice and enhance the taste they had given us some authentic Dipping Sauces.

Asian Cottages Cheese Ravioli: This was absolutely must have. Flimsy Ravioli dipped in Thai flavoured curry served in Martini Glass. Wow. This is a beautiful creation by the Chef. #MustHave

Crispy Vegetable Cheung Fun: This cheung fun is one of the more untraditional dishes, mixing the textures of the soft cheung fun skin, the crispy beancurd sheets and the Veggies filling. I loved this! No wonder its the Gong’s most favourite dish.

Crispy Lotus Stem: This is unarguably the best Crispy Lotus stem I ever had. The speciality of this is the Stem are big in size and which are directly imported from Thailand. Thats it has a different taste and crunch with every bite. #MustHave

Burnt garlic fried rice with vegetables in Chilli basil: This is the only restaurant where I liked the Fried rice, nice and flavourful with burnt Garlic. Vegetable tossed and served with Chilli Basil sauce.

Stir fried Noodles: Good in taste Finely chopped veggies added to it.
Desserts:

Chocolate Dome: One of the fancy items from the menu. Big Chocolate Dome is placed and Hot Chocolate Sauce is poured over it to uncover the hidden gems like Brownie cubes, Crispy honey flat noodles, Some Popcorns, and a Scoop of Vanilla Ice-Cream. #MustHave.
Mocktails:

Malaya Spiced Melon and Hot Guava Punch: Its bit difficult to decide between both but Hot Guava Punch is my favourite.

Overall:

Gong takes you to the Journey of Asian cuisine along with some latest Molecular Gastronomy techniques and which embellishes the overall dinning experience. The Interiors of the Gong makes this journey Magnetic and Delightful.

A big Shout out to Shweta from ESOL and Team Gong for Invitation and hosting us.
