Our Manchow Experience
Located on the second floor of bustling side lane of Marathali-Outer Ring Road , adjacent to the Shell Petol pump , the interiors are simple yet impressive budget dining place. It was a vegetarian day out for us as we decided to try their meat offerings some other day.
The Kimchi salad was served to us complimentary and then we decided to order the hearty portion of Manchow , a thick hot spicy tasty soup ,garnished with spring onions, carrots and other vegetables.
From their dim sums, we ordered Fried vegetarian wonton veg , crispy deep fried wontons stuffed with vegetables and served with spicy dip. Perhaps this was only dish where I missed the meats as vegetable stuffing was too bland for me.
Next to arrive were the mains , the Broccoli and Corn in Hunan style sweet and sour vegetables , tossed in thick savoury and sauce , accompanied with the Burnt Chilli Garlic noodles ,as we both love the garlic flavours with the noodles.

From their limited dessert menu , The Fried ice cream , sprinkled with honey, was our last course of the meal and we absolutely loved it. They also have Apple & Cinnamon rolls with ice cream and Fried honey noodles with ice cream as other sweet dishes.
Definitely worth visiting for the love of Desi Chinese food. I am sure that Those who have a palate for Tangra style Chinese will go gaga over this.
