As you walk in, the first thing that catches your eye is the height of the ceiling and a red-and-grey wall with quirky elements like colourful posters and hand-painted pots and pans in vibrant hues. Use of leather and metal in the couches and chairs adds an extra touch of cool.

The flagship outlet of Wow! China — from the house of Wow! Momo — opened doors on Park Street with its menu flaunting a range of Indian-Chinese delicacies. The 70-seater “fast-casual” restaurant spread across 2,100 sq ft, boasts of two floors that also come with a private dining area. The F&B menu consists of an array of dishes curated as a blend of Indian and Chinese cuisines. The Chinese Chakna section offers spicy dishes you can snack on if you don’t opt for the more wholesome options like the Khao Suey.

“Serving Chinese main course dishes real quick, yet in a casual dining space, is how we came up with Wow! China. In 2018, we opened our first QSR outlet at City Centre New Town, after which we opened in Phoenix Marketcity Mall in Mumbai and so on. But those were all in kiosk formats. This one comes with a much larger area where one can drop in and have a full course meal. Since we are based out of Calcutta, our first preference was the city itself,” said Sagar J. Daryani, CEO, Wow! Momo.
