What Makes It Awesome?

SHAO - The newest restaurant at the Radisson Blu outer ring road has opened its doors for you and is ready to titillate your taste buds with their Thai, Japanese and Chinese dishes each better than the other.

I started with a drink, Fantastic Four - ideally gets its name from the four primary juices used in it, mango, litchi, cranberry and lemon making it very refreshing indeed.

I'm usually not a soup person at all, but I tried the Wanton and Kaffir lime soup - So they will actually give you a soup bowl which has vegetables, lemongrass, coriander and carrots along with steamed wanton (2 pieces of either veg, chicken or prawn) and the delicious broth is poured over it right in front of you. I could skip water for the amazing soup!

Moving on, I had the sushis on the Assorted Sushi boat which were - Prawn tempura uramaki, smoked salmon maki and prawn nigiri. Perhaps the Smoked salmon maki was my favourite and I ordered refills of just that. It comes in a set of six in a bamboo boat with a fine presentation.

Then, I had the Prawn hargao - Crystal skin dumplings with a filling of prawn steamed to perfection and served hot.

I am a huge fan of Lotus stem, so I moved on to try the Honey chilli lotus stem - the slices of lotus stem are slightly thick as a result of which it wasn't crispy. Also, it's on the sweeter side so do let them know your preference and they will make it perfect for you.

Another signature non-vegetarian starter - The Sichuan spicy chicken, which is crispy fried chicken bits broiled in a pool of dried red chillies, super hot. Caution: Eat with care.

Moving on, I had the double-cooked pork belly smoked and spiced with Sichuan chilli and ground pepper along with some smoked chicken fried rice. Both, delicious in their traditional flavours.

To end with, of course, I can't have desserts so I went on to have the Red velvet deco sprayed chocolate mousse infused with a gelly of kaffir lime and White chocolate mousse.

Loved the food and the service was even better. Also, the kitchen has been partitioned strategically from the seating area whereby you can see and appreciate the food being made for you!
