What Makes It Awesome

Flying Duck started as a tiny eatery on Baner-Pashan link road, serving up delish South-East Asian grub and meaty dishes. Recently, they've relocated to a bigger space at Balewadi High Street, under the name 'Flying Duck Co.'. Mezzanine interiors with a muted grey colour scheme and metallic accents lend a sleek and contemporary feel to the new restaurant. They've also expanded their menu to include European as well as Pan-Asian cuisine, so there are a lot of exciting new things to try. We like that their 'secret' menu isn't listed online - because it left us in eager anticipation of trying something new. Just walk in with an open mind and palate; you won't be disappointed.

We tried their Coffee and Chipotle rubbed steak kebabs, which were cooked medium-rare to perfection; pork chops in a secret sauce marinade, and the Burmese khow-suey with prawns. The pork chops were fall-off-the-bone tender, and the moreish marinade kept us guessing as to the ingredients. Flying Duck Co.'s version of khow-suey is a velvety, rich coconut spiced curry served with wok-tossed noodles and condiments - and a dish we could see ourselves going back for. Other dishes you should try are their crispy-fried quail with flavoured rice and greasy sauce; pork in the fermented bamboo shoot; Singapore chilli prawns with flavoured rice, and anything that's on their specials blackboard. They also make in-house pasta and a number of other delicious things. 

For refreshments, we sipped on a rainbow mocktail - but were pleased to find that their bar menu features a short and concise cocktail menu comprising of classics as well as their own specials like the Elder High and Super Bowl. Their service is efficient and friendly, and we would recommend dining here during the day when it's {relatively} less crowded than it is at night.
