Asia in the Box has some delightful Asian food items! Order in for a lovely relaxed evening!
Last week sometime I was in a bad bad mood one evening. Suddenly, everything seemed bad and I felt like doing nothing. So N came back home and said ‘lets order some food, have a drink, listen to some music and you will feel good’. The suggestion seemed good so we decided to order in from Asia in the Box, whose menu we were having from past month or so from our Thulp visit (yeah its a Thulp venture).
The first look at their site and their menu – both online and the printed one, has a very smart feel to it and their tag line is gourmet to go and that sounds very impressive too. We ordered Stir Fry Prawns with spicy sambal Olek and Greens beans, a chicken basil fried rice and veg stir fried noodles with soya sauce and fried garlic. The person taking the order was friendly and seemed to know food a little bit. We were told that food will take an hour to get delivered which is a lot of time, but we were glad that they told it before hand rather than delaying the order plus we were in no hurry, we had our drink to finish, music to listen, you see.
A little less than an hour later, the bell rang and when we opened the door, we were a little surprised. There was a very courteous person standing with the food boxes in a tray and the bill in the folder. It was indeed a pleasant feeling, a small thing sure but in customer service, these small things make a great difference, I think.
I was also very happy with the packaging of the food, smart, convenient and handy.
The food was nice too. The rice had a brilliant fresh flavour because of basil, the prawns fresh and spicy to the extent that I really liked. My only crib was that noodles were a little sweet may be because of soya, but all in all, it was a meal we enjoyed. The food they have is not the run of the mill Chinese and you won’t find any Machurian/veg balls on the menu, instead you will find some very innovative and authentic Asian dishes on it. They have some thing called Singapore rice meal which is a meal for 4 and needs to be ordered 4 hours in advance.
In the end, I would say a must try if you are in their delivery zone i.e. Kormanagala, HSR and outer ring road and Frazer Town and surrounding areas.
