Beijing Bites

Beijing bites happens to be within walking distance of my office and it’s usually the place we hit when we have some treats or crave food other than the sad canteen fare.
I’ve been to this branch twice now for lunch– both times its extremely full with techies waiting outside , and having reservations don’t help either. Usually, there’s a waiting period of atleast 20-30 minutes.
We usually start off with the hot n sour chicken soup – which is a favorite of most of us. 
Hot N Sour Chicken soup
Pretty standard spicy soup with a generous portion of veggies and chicken.Cant go wrong here.
We ordered the dragon chicken and drums of heaven as starters.
Dragon Chicken
The dragon chicken was the usual spicy saucy fried pieces of boneless chicken along with capsicum and onion, with a hint of sweetness.Not bad but not great either.
Drums of chicken were just ok – batter fried pieces of chicken on its skimpy leg.It was hot and crispy and that was about it.
Drums of heaven
For mains we ordered a mixed fried rice along wit garlic chicken gravy . Nothing much to rave about.
Chicken Koithio,Garlic chicken and Mixed fried rice(L to R)
We also had an order of chicken koithio- which is flat noodles in a chicken spicy sauce and lot of veggies. It was ok but I’ve had better in other outlets of Beijing bites.
Overall it was just a normal eating out experience – and cost effective.
On earlier occasion - I’ve tried the Thai red curry as well, it was good but no pictures!
