Tim Tai Asian Restaurant Koramangala

Last week has been a lot of eating out….and tried out another restaurant in Koramangala. My new friend Tina took me to TIM TAI restaurant in Koramangala. This is a pan-asian restaurant. So you can get your Dimsums, Thai Curries, Malaysian Rendang. The also offer some of the Cambodian and Indonesian cuisines.

The décor of this place is beautiful. The glass ceiling allows the natural light giving it a nice casual feeling. The yellow colour aids in making this place very bright and friendly.

We greeted with a smile and our server Indira was awesome. He was quite sweet and prompt throughout.
Their menu is quite exhausting and one can take a really long time to decide! I am in love with dimsums. So, for starters, we ordered rice & lotus filling wrapped in banana leaf dimsums. For mains, I ordered a vegetarian Steamed Noodle with Burnt Garlic and Char-Grilled Eggplant. My friend chose a non-veg option of Crispy Rice Vermicelli topped with spinach with chicken.

Tim Tai Restaurant KoramangalaI can’t review the non-veg option as I didn’t eat it. My friend loved the flavours but found the chicken a bit dry.

The dimsums were sublime! I loved each bite of it! They were so good that I didn’t need the sauce they served! The warm sticky rice stuffed with lotus stems and other minced veggies! The stuffing had a beautiful and delicate taste!

After asking, the server informed that the main dish that I ordered was perfect for 1 person. But honestly, 2 people could have eaten that dish.

The flavours of the dish were nice and mildly spicy. It filled with tonnes of veggies which I loved and the noodle cooked to perfection. The sauce was very rich and creamy with tomato base to it! For reasons, I can’t pinpoint the dish was very heavy on the stomach. I couldn’t take the second helping! So I was a little disappointed with this dish, especially after a cracker starter!

I am not ready to write off this place just yet as there are plenty of vegetarian dishes to choose from. Next time, I will order something else and keep you guys updated! For now, here is a summary.

Phobidden Fruit Vietnamese Kitchen Restaurant, Bengaluru

 

To being with, I simply love this place! This has been our go-to place for my husband and I. Every chance we get; we definitely visit it. This time we introduced our friend to this place. Trust me he was a happy camper at the end of our meals.

I really love how simple and unassuming design of this place is. It definitely has the warmth to it, although some might feel a little too close to the next table. You know this place is good when you see people waiting outside always. I have seen the owner many times ensuring you are welcome with a smile and served properly.

Let’s talk about the best part now ‘FOOD’. Phobidden Fruit place doesn’t stop to surprise me. Every time we go there we end up trying new dishes and love it! Many vegetarians would turn away thinking this is Vietnamese food, what options will they have! But trust me there are plenty.

Our entire order, of course, was vegetarian.

We ordered Ban Xeo and as always Mekong momos for starters. Banh Xeo dish reminds me off our India dish Cheela or Ghavan (India’s savoury crepes). Only this one seems to be made with rice and stuff with delicious mushrooms, onions & Sprouts. They serve this with a soy based sauce which compliments it perfectly. As for Mekong Momos, they steamed dumpling stuffed with vegetables served with tomato garlic dip. I really enjoy these with this spicy sauce they have in a little jar at every table! Yummmmm

For mains, this time we ordered peanut satay curry with rice and smoked noodles with shitake mushrooms served with salad and potato fritters. And boy we were happy about ordering it!! The peanut satay curry was a flavour bomb! Slightly sweet, spicy with tonnes of vegetables. The Smoky Noodle was a surprise. I didn’t expect it to be so good. It did have a nice smoky flavour mixed with diced shitake mushrooms and you really didn’t need anything else!

We have been to this place many times. The only Dish that we didn’t like or should I say liked it a bit less was the Banh Mi. This is a baguette bread sandwich with vegetables and herbs. The flavours ok. Too much avocado overpowered the flavour of other ingredients and it was a little difficult to eat. But their vegetarian Pho is just sublime! The balance of flavours in the broth is great and noodles are always cooked to perfection. A MUST TRY!

Overall, you should have this place has to be on your list!! See below for restaurant details and my ratings.
