379 Interested |


JW Marriott's Vintage Asia has a brand new menu with 33 new dishes bringing to Kolkatans the exotic flavours of the Far East.

What Makes It Awesome

Tired of the same old Chinese and Thai? Head to Vintage Asia at the JW Marriott. Chef Alexsander  Cheng has rustled up a brand new menu packed with dishes from Thailand and all over the Far East, that Kolkatans have never tasted before. From the mushroom bao, that fooled everyone into thinking it was a mushroom, to the flavourful herb scented Tofu Snow Peas Soup, there was novelty everywhere.

Fish lovers are going to adore the Steamed Betki Fillet in Chinese Garlic Soy Sauce and the Singaporean Chilli Crab. But the star attraction is the Sautéed Rock Lobster in Sichuan Chilli Sauce, with its salty spicy kick. Thai Pineapple Cashewnut Fried Rice and Mei Fun and Vegetables in Spicy Oyster Sauce are both perfect accompaniments, with a new twist to the familiar.

Vegetarian? No worries. The delightfully crunchy Chilli Basil Crispy Potato and the Wok Fried Asparagus with Mushroom and Truffle Oil are brilliant. Another one of the highlights are tiny, cute looking swans that are actually deep fried dumplings filled with veggies. The best part is, Chef Alexsander Cheng will be introducing more dishes from Singapore and Malaysia as time goes by, so look out for more surprises. We only wish there were a few more options for dessert.

Available for lunch (12:20pm – 3pm Saturdays) dinner (7pm – 11:45pm on all days) and Sunday brunch (12:30pm – 3:30pm) a meal for two costs INR 3,000 plus.


Have a sweet tooth? While there aren’t too many options at the moment, do not miss the Blueberry Snow Skin. The delicate skin made of Japanese mochigome rice contains blueberry jam and is topped with a dainty scoop of ice cream – again, a new twist to something familiar.
