4. Thai set – So you can choose which you want. Since we were two, we chose Thai and Teppanyaki .
The Thai Set was absolutely delicious with green Thai curry served with jasmine rice .

 

5. Teppanyaki – This was more on the spicier and tastier side with good vegetables sautéed served with amazing fried rice. The rice was super delicious .
Both the dishes were served with stir fried vegetables .

6. Dessert of the day was Icecream . It was refreshing and smooth end to the meal !
We were all full !
But we had to try two additional desserts (not a part of the lunch menu)

 

A. Caramel pecan nuts honey wasabi Icecream : The tart and everything with it was just scintillating as there was every flavour involved from sweet to salty to smooth Icecream .

 


B. POhs mess yoghurt textures of fruits :
We liked this a bit less as we are chocolate lovers. But the presentation nailed it .

Staff :
The staff is warm . Also Mithun, our server was sweet.

Overall we had great experience.

The lunch menu is only from Mon – Friday !

Affection with Asian @Pa Pa Ya

IMG-20180314-WA0040

Pa pa ya is a high energy dining comely that encapsulates all the five sense into dining experience. Basically Asian food and drink with a twist . Molecular gastronomy and mixology has been added as a value rather than a gimmick . In a sense the menu is a combination of science and art

Let us begin

What did we order?


Drinks :

Love potion
Nothing can go wrong when vodka meets berries and litchi. Everything was so smooth and it accompanied well with my food.

Food :

Asparagus, corn and burnt spring onion


Steamed asparagus and corn farce in potato and wheat Starch mounded into flower. Absolutely loved this Dimsum. You should should should try it.

Modern sushi
Crispy vegetable maki, dehydrated spinach
Sweet and sour crispy vegetables rolled into a futomaki, spicy mayo
There is no doubt that papaya is my favorite place for sushi. I loved the addition of crispness on the sushi. And secondly, these flavours just go well together.

Beer battered avocado tacos, corn and scallion kimchi
Cripsy avocado, corn and scallion kimchi, farted mozzarella
This was palatable too.

Edamame and chickpea sliders, homemade potato chips
Lotus flour buns, grilled chickpea and edamame patties, chilli Mayo
What did I even describe more about it?
Everything was just wonderful.

Corn and spinach fried rice
Ching mai curry, Brussels
The Ching mai curry made me drool. The smooth coconut milk along with rich flavours and vegetables going wonderfully with the corn and spinach fried rice.

Desserts:


We ended it with the chocolate fire ball. It is priced for ₹710 but it’s huge. Easily 4 people can devour.
The chocolate crispy is beautiful and the texture amalgamates with the soft icecream and brownie.

How’s the service ?
The service is so welcoming and what impressed me was that everyone knew about the dishes .
Chef Sahil Singh and Chef Vinayak have done a great job.

Let me mention all the sweet people who hosted us
Sudarshan
Zen
Saif
Anshuman
Thanks, you guys were wonderful
Chocolate ball on fire

How’s the price?
It is expensive as it’s a fine dine and most of the people come there for the experience and the alchemy that Karla holds.
Cost for two would be around 3000₹ without taxes and alcohol.

Overall?
It was beautiful experience to try so many different flavours presented differently
