Restaurant review – Yauatcha, Quest Mall, Kolkata 

My husband and I first visited this place in the month of July and have been regulars ever since. Located on the top floor of Quest mall, it is recommended to reserve a table before visiting. The place has a beautiful ambiance, specially the view from the glass panes overlooking the busy streets of Kolkata. They pride themselves on being a Michelin star restaurant and they have all the reasons to do so. In our first visit, we were not very familiar with the options to choose from. The steward, based on our preferences suggested us the food items and boy they were yummylicious. We had our 2year old son with us and the staffs went a step ahead to get few food items customized for him-like no spice, a little more boiled than usual. The service is class apart.

Coming to the food, we ordered chicken dumplings, prawn dumplings and squids for starters. Dumplings literally melt in one’s mouth. Squids were good too except the overdose of powdered biscuits spreading. For main course, we tried out egg fried rice (shared with our son), Kung pao chicken and a basil fish item. For drinks, we tried Lychee martini, kiwi and lime iced tea and watermelon juice for the toddler. Every item deserves a special mention and one’s taste buds are indeed satiated. We decided to end the meal with chocolate hazelnut mousse and it matched up to our expectation.

The pricing is on the higher side, specially if the portions are considered. Each dish of dumpling has only 3 dumplings and thus one is left ordering for more items. Considering the local market requirements, I feel that they might do good in scaling up their portions. But the quality, taste, ambience, service more than make up for the pricing and portion.

My rating on various parameters would be (out of 5)

Ambiance – 5

Food-5

Service – 5

Pricing – 4

Overall – 4.8

Currently, I am pursuing a one-year MFA in creative writing course from the Writer's Village University, U.S. Though I must admit that I am still trying to figure out how and when I can connect all these dots. Have I done any real work? If two years in market research, six years in banking as a branch head two-and-a-half years in blogging and publishing a book can be considered as real work, then yes. Where do I live? After spending life like a nomad for sixteen years in Delhi, Bangalore & Mysore, I am back to where it all started from - Kolkata. My favorite things - Books, coffee, travel, food, and my four-and-a-half-year-old son. What is this blog about? Through Sonia's musings, I intend to explore writing in various genres, create social awareness, spread laughter and channelize emotions through words and pictures. Anything for readers? You can check out my book 'Deal of Death' on Amazon Kindle. If you like fast-paced thrillers, this Detective fiction introducing the woman sleuth, Raya Ray could turn out to be your perfect weekend read.
