Vintage Asia mixes contemporary Asian cuisine with modern cooking techniques, and all within one dining settings in JW Marriott Kolkata.
A combination of gracious service, inventive food, stylish décor and stunning ambience ensure that the restaurant is a hit with both guests and locals alike.
The food is inspired by the Asian Culinary heritage, showcasing authentic Thai & Chinese cuisine. The design of the restaurant is modern and inviting using a combination of clean modern lines and rustic textured wooden touches.
Mixing art deco style with modern Oriental touches, the ambience is luxurious yet cozy, making Vintage Asia an ideal place to unwind after a busy day.
The restaurant features a Beverage Lounge, at the very front of restaurant, with casual seating. It encourages guests to linger, making it the perfect place to enjoy a light meal or a perfectly mixed cocktail.
Add to this the personalized service at the two show kitchens and a seasonal menu featuring local produce tagged with perfect environment to enjoy delectable Asian cuisine.
Lose the finely tuned balance of a dish- the sweetness of the unrefined sugar, the sourness of lime, the bitterness of pea aubergine, the hotness of little bird’s eye chilly and the flavours like lime leaf, galangal and grass. In a stir fry, it’s not only proportion- it’s timing too: cooking times are in seconds and fractions of seconds, yet proportion continues to dominate the scene.
Chef Tan & Chef Ninja, the chefs at the Vintage Asia specialize in Chinese and Thai cuisine respectively.
Chef Tan’s attention to detail and presentation, and Chef Ninja’s creative style and intense flavours can give you a feel of what to expect at Vintage Asia. One can start their meal with a long spout personalized tea service- Chinese Tea ceremony to help cleanse your palate before the meal.
The must try from Vintage Asia menu’s Steam section is ‘Beijing vegetable dumpling with celery & mushroom, sesame sauce’ and the ‘Chicken, Shitake Siumai’. The Wok section, comprising of the stir-fry’s, should not be missed like the ‘Wok seared pork belly & pineapple in Chef Tan’s brown sauce’ and the ‘Phad Thai, flat noodle with tamarind & chili’.
A Thai meal is not complete without the curries, thus look out for the ‘Thai Green Fish Curry, Broccoli, Pea aborigine, Choy Sum’ with its intense flavours and fish, which is the city’s favourite meat.
End your meal with ‘Tub Tim Krob- Chilled Jellied Waterchest nut, sweetened coconut cream’ with its innovative mix of tang.
They also have a Chef’s studio which is crafted for exclusive private dining with authentic Asian offerings. The restaurant promises strong emphasis on the finest fresh, organic and traditionally-sourced ingredients, with spices purchased directly from the roots of the cuisine.
“Amalgamating traditional spices and flavours with unusual yet sublime food, to a level of sophistication that is second to none, makes eating at Vintage Asia an experience that is both awe-inspiring and unforgettable,” says Chef Tan.
