Good Food, Great Ambiance..yet Pocket Friendly
Very posh and 'swishy' almosphere to the entire place, makes you half-worry - "oh it's going to be a rip-off". But when the bill arrives it really surprises you that this place is not as steep as it tastes!!
Good food, large steamy portions, well behaved staff, soft ambient music, 5-star hotel ambiance...and yet pocket friendly.
I wish there was more variety on the menu though, more so if you were a vegetarian...the only area Shao could improve on if you ask me.
Worth a visit
I visited this place a month or so back , so unable to get into details, but I will def say that its worth a try...the food was amazing and the ambience is nice too, I distinctly remember that the thai rice that we ordered had an amazing aroma, its still lingering while I recollect :)
The flipside would be , the service was average , expect better, this restaurant being in a 5* hotel and now that i have stated that its in a star hotel, the price is a bit high too.
go ahead and dine at Shao esp, if u r celebrating an occasion , it would make it even more spl !!!!
Thai Food at its best
Delicate & Flavorsome Thai Food in an exquisite zen like ambiance is what Shao offers. Cradled within the Park Plaza Hotel on Outer Ring Road, near Marathahalli, Shao serves delightful gourmet oriental fare. Had one of my best 'thai' meals last weekend and the beautiful flavors & aromas still lingers in my memory. Might return soon for another gorgeous meal. A 'must-visit' place for all Thai Food lovers.
Wow...Amazing Chinese but easy on wallet
Today evening, we enjoyed a lovely dinner at Shao, Hotel Park Plaza, near Marthahalli Bridge. Being inside a Star hotel, you are saved from the pangs of parking your vehicle. The restaurant is located in the first floor of the hotel, next to two other restaurants. The ambience was modern and elegant. The high ceiling and the open kitchen added to the vibrant milieu.
We were greeted well and seated promptly at a place of our choice. We gave the drinks a miss and ordered for Tom Yum Soup and Prawn Dim Sum. To our surprise, while we were waiting for our soup, we were served with complimentary vegetable dim sum and Chinese tea. The dim sum was bursting with flavors and the tea tasted of herbs but seemed extremely healthy. The Shrimp Tom Yum was one of the best which I tasted in Bangalore better than Benjarong. The Prawn dim sum was served with a ginger and peanut sauce, even though we didnt like the dip the dumplings were succulent.
The main course was Hsin Ching Chowmein and Gaipad Khing Chincken (Thai Style). The noodles tasted more like my neighborhood joint but had loads of fresh spring onions and other vegetables. The Thai style Chicken was the highlight of the evening. It consisted of all the delightful Thai flavours of lemongrass, Galangal, Kaffir Lime leaves and Thai Chilies. We could taste all of these but none overpowering the presence of the other.
We were too full for any desserts. Service was prompt and non-intrusive. We loved that food arrived at well-paced intervals. The total damage including tip was Rs 2000/- which I think is very reasonable considering the place and the food.
This part of the town can now boast of a good far eastern restaurant.
