Restaurant Review : Ginseng – Royal Orchid Hotel Old Airport Road ,Bangalore | India

Ginseng is the award winning Pan Asian restaurant at Royal Orchid , Bangalore specialising in Chinese, Japanese , Tangra & Asian cuisines

The decor of Ginseng will take back you a bit into the Chinese medieval era with its look and feel , you will find Grand Lord Buddha facing the entrance as you enter the place., with huge bone china artistic pillars on both sides.On the one of the walls, many metallic statutes perhaps inspired by the iconic Terracotta Army can be seen. Sharing the food on the table and chatting over the meals has always been cultural tradition in China and here there’s a big round table for the traditional Chinese meals.There is provision for a private dining area for small groups.

 

For a three of us , our Ginseng culinary experience included the following from the menu.

My Observation 

Despite of long existence ,popularity and numerous awards, Ginseng continues to be a hidden gem for many in the city. I would recommend you too try wide variety of prawns dishes if you’re a seafood lover.The sushi & sashimi , the teppenyaki live counter is must try if you arrive here in a small group with prior reservation. Overall a great place for dining with loved ones or business dinner. Their bar menu has some exciting cocktails too that you can try with the meal.We tried Cosmopolitan and other from their Jeff’s menu.
