Although Chandigarh has more than its fair share of eateries proffering Asian cuisine, the dishes at Kylin are more than good enough to warrant it sharing a piece of the pie (… or should that be star anise ice -cream?!). All the dishes we tried successfully managed to blend distinctively Oriental flavours with some just a bit Punjabish, resulting in not so authentic but delicious creations that weren’t just the same old standards found elsewhere. You can expect to find Thai, Japanese and Chinese influences on the Kylin menu; we skipped the Live Sushi bar section and instead kicked off proceedings with a deliciously addictive assorted Dimsum basket. Served with a spicy sauce, you’ll find that these gorgeous little morsels disappear from your table very quickly given the chance!
The wok tossed sole with bullet chillies was also impressive; the fish was cooked perfectly and had a beautiful clean taste that anchored the riot of Asian flavours on top. However, the standout dish was the sliced pork in angel pepper sauce; the meat was melt-in-mouth tender, the sauce gloriously rich, dark and sticky, and a final kick of pepper kept us coming back for more. And yes the Kung Pao chicken was spicy, savory and delicious with steamed rice.
Most dishes are priced very reasonably and given the generous serving sizes, are ideal for sharing – prices which seem neatly on par with the surrounding restaurants in the area. Combined with a quietly cool atmosphere and warm and inviting staff, Kylin is a member of the family we definitely want to see more of!
