‘Wok on Fire’ is a famous Surat based Pan Asian restaurant ready to serve Amdavadi crowd. The amount of fancy publicity done by them had upped my expectations. The place, however, was small and cozy (a wise decision, really!) It was a red and black themed restaurant with less aesthetics and more functionality. The interiors were clean, well lit and welcoming. After an hour long wait on a Friday evening, we were tired but excited to order. They have pulled up a great job with the menu. It is extremely elaborate, but not frustrating. However, when a big group with extremely fussy people are in question, it is best to leave the order to the chef’s choice! And so we did.

We started off with teriyaki potatoes (sweet and spicy), steamed momos (far from authentic) and crackling vegetables (a personal favourite). The starters tasted quite similar, with a few deviating flavours. I would suggest trying new dishes to get the best of the place. As always, the plates were empty in no time, and we started the second phase of our restaurant argument: the main course! The manager was quite sorted even in the rush hour, and might I say, extremely courteous. We ordered burnt garlic and spinach rice to go with our Soho curry. The rice was perfectly cooked and the flavour was a fresh change. We charted new territories and found delicious Burmese when we ordered an excellent version of the famous Khao Suey (a commendable effort). It makes me proud when we Amdavadis (Suratis in this case) master foreign recipes. This dish will soon be a highly sought one.

We closed up with dessert, hogging on chocolate rolls (chocolate rolling from them) and honey noodles with ice-cream. A special last-minute request was made by us for a birthday, and lo-and-behold – candles on our dessert! The staff won my heart over this.

To sum it up, this is a restaurant that successfully delivers to the hype it created. A few glitches found here and there, but I guess all’s well when the taste buds are happy and the stomach, full!
