Chinese with an Indian twist in a casual dining, bar-and-bistro set up is what you get at the second outlet of Wow! China in Calcutta, and the 50th nationally. Located in Sector V, Wow! China will offer a la carte as well as buffet option with live counters. The beverage menu will feature mocktails until the outlet gets its alcohol license.
“With Wow! China Bistro, the concept of Desi Chinese gets reflected in every aspect — right from decor to signature dishes, mocktails to soon-to -be-launched cocktails. We want to be a destination for all occasions,” said Sagar Daryani, CEO and founder, Wow! Momo and Wow! China.
Straight off the streets of Shanghai, hand-pulled rickshaws with cushioned seats lend a touch of fun to the 82-seater space. Bright reds and yellows blended with Oriental motifs dominate the 3,000sq ft space. Murals and designs are done by art college students using Chinese watercolour. Don’t miss out the Chinese-style watercolour painting on the ceiling in one corner. Distinctive Chinese-style hand-painted fans add a pop of vibrance to the brightly-lit space. The bar with neon lights and splashes of red, wears a fun look.
