Restaurant Review : Big Wong, Sector 50, Near Sohna Road

Located in the Sector 50 market of Sohna Road, Big Wong is situated right next to the Hilton Hotel. With the market and the complex being dead otherwise, the only 3 places keeping it active are Barista, Giani's and Big Wong. And Big Wong, I should say, is the 'king' of this market!

With a decor that has a deep shade of red painted on the walls, furniture that's a no-fuss shiny wood, the place inclines more towards a fine-dine concept than that of an on-the-go one. The place can accommodate close to 30 covers at one time, and a major portion of the restaurant still deals with home delivery along with this.

The owner, Raghav, is a sweet gentleman, just as you might have read in the other reviews. He assists you with your order, recommends you dishes, tells you what will suffice and what won't, and is a great host to his guests!

We placed an order for Thai Basil Chicken Dimsum, Cantonese Prawn Roll, Veg Cheese Roll and Chinese Veg Pizza.

The Thai Basil Chicken Dimsum had a thick exterior and was filled with chicken enveloped in basil and lemongrass flavour inside. The dimsum was topped with a sweet and spicy sauce. Phenomenal stuff!

The Cantonese Prawn Roll was deep-fried, beautifully crisp and golden rolls that were stuffed with chunks of perfectly cooked prawns coupled with noodles. What a delight this dish was!

Veg Cheese Rolls were spring rolls filled with cheese and cabbage, and just like the Cantonese Prawn Rolls, these too were amazingly crisp! The filling was just superb!

The Chinese Veg Pizza was a triangular deep-fried appetizer that was filled with cheese and veggies. This was so good that for a minute I thought this could replace all the non veg in my life! That's how good this was! Simply divine!

After these, we went with Steam Fish Black Bean, Crispy Honey Chilli Potatoes, Butter Chilly Garlic Prawn, Chicken Dumpling Homemade Sauce and an assortment of dimsums out of which I just tried Sui Mai Chicken Dimsum.

The Steam Fish Black Bean was by far the best steamed fish I've ever had! With bangs of flavour and a chilli hit in the end of every bite, there's no kidding when I say it was out of this world! The fish just melted in your mouth, quite literally! A must must try!

Crispy Honey Chilli Potato is one dish that doesn't need any description. The taste of this one at Big Wong was really nice and absolutely spot-on, but they could do with making the potatoes less crispier.

The Butter Chilly Garlic Prawn tasted nice, but they weren't as crisp and tasted rather soggy.

Chicken Dumpling Homemade Sauce was again full of flavour and with a gravy on the dumpling that was a perfect harmony of all the spices. Really really really nice! 

The place is bang-on right when they say dimsums are their USP ! Also, the option of choosing between 4 or 6 dimsums gives you the chance of sampling a variety of these. 

The Sui Mai Chicken Dimsums were the only ones I tried out of the assortment. A paper-thin coating with some very juicy and handsomely cooked chicken inside, this dimsum too, was an absolute treat!

For main course we went with Kung Pao Chicken, Fish Ginger Chilli Wine, Chilli Garlic Chicken Noodles and Spicy Szechuan Shrimp Fried Rice.

The Kung Pao Chicken was a little too salty for my liking but was cooked properly and had that hint of crispiness which was nice.

The Fish Ginger Chilli Wine was a beauty! Perfectly balanced flavours, nothing overpowering the other one, each flavour coming out beautifully! The fish, again, just melted in the mouth!

Chilli Garlic Chicken Noodles had no taste of either the chilli or the garlic. They were rather bland.

The Spicy Szechuan Shrimp Fried Rice was a star of a dish! Really yummy rice and those superb shrimps and egg! Simply loved this one!

Their pricing is completely in sync with the other places around, the service is prompt and you don't have to wait too long for your food, the quantities are really gratifying, and the food is presented excellently! After really long I have visited a Chinese place where I adored almost all the dishes I tried! 

Will be visiting again really soon and ordering in more often than that :)
