When seventeen very hungry Kolkata Food Fanatics descend upon the newest Asian specialty restaurant in Kolkata, what follows? Madness, mayhem, lots of pictures, lots of social media updates and of course, very good food! What is this restaurant that we all went to? Vintage Asia at J W Marriott Kolkata that is just a month old. Opened last December, Vintage Asia showcases Asian, Chinese and Thai cuisine amalgamating traditional spices and flavors. It was my first time at the restaurant and I was simply blown away by the food. To know what I ate and what I loved, read on.
Vintage Asia is located on the first floor of the hotel and my reaction on entering the place was “The decor is so beautiful and elegant”. Mixing the art deco style with a modern Oriental touch, the ambience is luxurious yet cozy. Just like JW Kitchen, there is an abundance of natural light here and that is something I always like in a restaurant. It just livens up the entire atmosphere and of course makes clicking pictures easier :D. The restaurant features a beverage lounge right in front of an open bar which is separate from the main dining area. That makes it ideal for people who just want to unwind over a few drinks and don’t want to go in for a full meal.
