A dine-in Silicon Oasis Branch offering Chinese and Italian cuisine.
We were invited by Hyperlink Media for a tasting session and planned for lunch.
Ratings: 4 Golden Nuggets
Its a medium-sized joint tucked in the corner of Silicon Oasis. When we entered we found the place to be empty for a weekend but they did have take-away orders that kept going on. The outlet has a spacious seating arrangement and can comfortably accommodate groups too.
We were told that we could try a starter, a main dish and a dessert and sadly the pizza was not part of the same menu; so we could not try it!
So we stuck with the mains and a juice:
Beef Chili [AED 36]: Our server had mentioned that the dish was a dry once instead what we got served was a beef manchurian. The dish had too much of soya which made it quite salty and the beef was not prepared well making it hard to eat more than a few bites. We were disappointed, as it did not meet our expectations!
The meat serving was generous and could be shared amongst two with either fried rice or noodles.
Beijing Tofu [AED 27]: This dish brought some of our hopes back as the tofu was really creamy and melts in your mouth. We were told that it was a spicy main but maybe our palates are a bit stronger and we could not find any hint of spice. Nonetheless, it was a good choice!
Although we noted that the quantity was a bit less in comparison to the non-veg dishes.
Vegetable Hakka Noodles [AED 25]: As we had a vegetarian partner along with us and this was the only option with noodles we opted for it. The dish tasted bland on its own but the chili sauce that was served along made it turn tables and bring out some flavors!

Lemon Mint [AED 15]: This was a let down because the juice was more of a lemonade then what we ordered for. The lemon was way too overpowering and made it quite a sour deal to finish the drink.
There was some confusion at the beginning about our tasting session being booked as the staff were unaware about our arrival but it was sorted out pretty quickly. We had a friendly server who was really kind when we took our own sweet time ordering and even re-heated our meal after our photo session!
We feel that the prices are a bit on the higher end for the overall quantity that is being served.
We had an average experience this time around, so maybe some time in the future we might give it another try!
