A lovely ambience, right next to the pool, makes Pan Asian restaurant East a perfect setting for chomping on dim sums, succulent pork ribs and a whole red snapper.
You Need To Dine At East In Crowne Plaza For Their Steamed Whole Red Snapper Alone!
Bok Choy And Shitake Dumplings, Barbeque Pork Ribs, Whole Steamed Snapper in Black Bean Sauce
Beer goes best with all the spicy and flavourful dishes here.
The whole steamed snapper in black bean sauce is a winner here and the lovely ambience gets bonus points from us. Plus, the concept of dimsum samplers lets you try many kids without having to order many platefuls.
Lowdown On The Ambience
A lovely space just off the swimming pool, open enough to allow the best of Bangalore’s weather to keep you company through your meal and sheltered enough to ensure the elements don’t bother you. A lovely mix of glass lampshades in varying colours and shapes make for a very interesting focal point in the restaurant. This place will soon be shifting location to a much higher spot in the hotel.
You Winsome, You Dimsum
Our meal began with vegetarian and meat dimsum samplers, something that the restaurant is known for in these parts. We tried the Bok Choy and Shiitake Dumplings — a moist casing that had the crunchiness of bok choy combined with the very distinctive taste and texture of shiitake. The crunchy Vegetable Crystal Dumplings and the spicy Vegetable Sichuan Dumplings would be our recommendation from the vegetarian selection. The Chicken Siu Mai and Prawn Hargao, both of which do not scrimp on filling that has been treated subtly, but the hargao could do with a slightly less tougher casing. .
