Silk Route

'Swadika' .Silk route sure looks inviting!"Thai cuisine is not very different from Indian food, what with all the curries and spices," explains Mr. Nainpal Sawhney.
"Pune," he reasons, "is not Bombay or Delhi or for that matter Bangalore; people here are not very adventurous when it comes to trying out new cuisines." We are seated in the cool confines of Silk Route, Mr. Sawnhey's six-month old Thai restaurant and his candid response was in answer to my equally candid "Why Thai? " Besides, he continues, there is an overkill where Chinese cuisine is concerned and since the city has just one other Thai restaurant, Thai food seemed a safe bet and so here I am, he grins bemusedly. Mr. Sawhney did a lot of scouting around for a good location before he opted for City Point, the fashionably elegant complex on Boat Club Road.

The decor - distinctly Thai"I hadn't planned to invest so much. Finally, it has to make economic sense, but I simply went ahead, " he admits in all honesty. What Mr. Sawhney is bound to earn is wholesome praise from customers who have dined here. Silk Route has a distinctly oriental feel with traditional Thai decor, adding just the right touch of authenticity. The music is Thai too, so you may not be able to sing along, but please feel free to get swayed by the music too.

Cuisine - fiery, ambience - coolThe food is as authentic as one can get with Mr. Sawnhey making sure that an assortment of ingredients including the herbs and spices are all imported from Thailand. Mr.Sawhney is especially happy with his range of soups and starters, often made into a happy meal.

Now for some more good news, the food is reasonably priced. After all as Mr. Sawhney said, Pune is not Bombay or....

Pune is unique and come to think of it, so is Silk Route.
