Seafood festival at Imperial China, Hilton Hotel Mumbai

Have you visited Hilton Hotels in India? In fact, its a new, enriching experience every time you visit. I visited Hilton Hotel Mumbai for an ongoing Seafood Festival. The first sight of the beautiful Crystal Lounge took my breath away, it gave me the feeling of visiting a palace.

A perfect ambiance with crystal chandeliers, comfortable sofas, and lounge chairs, to top this, the magical charm of Hindi/English popular numbers being played on the piano. It made you feel warm and comfortable instantly and that’s what makes Hilton Hotel Mumbai stand apart from other hotels.

Seafood Festival at Imperial China- Hilton Hotel Mumbai

Dining at Imperial China is a beautiful experience

We were in for a delectable treat at Imperial China, Hilton Mumbai, a fine dining Chinese Restaurant. I got an opportunity to review the ongoing Seafood festival that started on 23rd October and is on till 4th November. My sister Farzeen Irani is a hardcore seafood fan, accompanied me that day. Totally in awe with the grandeur and classic interior, Imperial China had its own charm. The wooden carvings, paintings, murals and especially the swinging paper fans on the ceiling caught my attention. Chef Mayanand Thakur – Sous Chef, greeted us at our table and took us through the regular and special seafood menu. I decided to let him serve us with pride, rather than decide what to order.

The dishes we tried that day

Anyone for a Dimsum?

1. Thai Sumai Dimsums – Such a delicately executed dish, the main feature is the wrapper, which has to be paper thin and the filling has to cook in the right temperature. Each dim sum dazzled like a jewel. Savouring it with the three dipping sauces served, it took it to another level.

2. Imperial Fried Fish – Beautiful fresh Red Snapper that was batter fried and then sauteed in a spicy and sweet garlic sauce and garnished with some fresh greens. Really enjoyed the flavors going on in this dish.

Scallops with Chilli and lime – Scallops have a delicate flavor that is complemented by strong seasonings, the dish presented to us had the true taste of authentic Chinese cuisine. The combination of the bird’s eye chili and lime gave the tastebuds such an enjoyable punch. Loved the presentation of the scallops served on a bed of fresh baby bok choy. Take a bow Chef Mayanand of Hilton Hotel Mumbai.

4. Smoked Prawns – Another stunning dish was this, and I am not saying this because I am a big prawn fan. Juicy and succulent spicy prawns, I did not miss my typical gravy dishes at all. Must add that the chicken fried rice was tasty and so soulful in every morsel.

6. Fried Ice cream with fresh fruits and chocolate sauce –  I have had fried ice cream before. However, this was by far the best one I have had. The exterior was crispy and hot while centre had cold ice cream. Served with chocolate sauce and finely chopped apples. Sweetannu recommends this dish strongly.
