Asian food has made its home in our hearts and our palates with its great flavours, amazing options and wonderful pairings. When it comes to good Asian food, we Indians always have our way with the dishes, adding our innate Indian-ism, the spices and aromas to the dish. And we have to say, that is exactly how we like it.

Yes, we are talking about desi-Chinese or Desi-Oriental food! Who can honestly say that they don't enjoy a good ol' dose of desi Chinese, or Thai. If you're looking for the comfort of Desi Chinese, head to Purple Wok Co. in Swaroop Nagar and satiate your palate with their delicious grub.

Oriental flavours mixed with Indian spices

While there are a ton of Asian fast food places out there which have created a niche for them, yet none of them can really shine a light to what the Purple Wok Co. offers. Most Asian places can only conjure up dishes that taste extremely bland and unoriginal, while some can only prepare concoctions that cannot be termed Asian at all. Purple Wok Co. has found the perfect sweet spot.

The dishes prepared here carry all the glitz and glam, the exotic veggies, the sauces and the flavours of Asian cooking, they are even served in fancy takeout boxes complete with wooden chopsticks! Yet, they manage to amp up the taste with Indian spices and an added dash of sauces.

So you can expect to taste your favourite flavours served in cutesy takeout containers and savour the taste of warm bliss!

Create your own or choose from the classics

Another unique feature of the Purple Wok Co. is the fact that they let all of their patrons customise their meals. So if you're looking for some hakka noodles tossed in peanuts or a stir fry with exotic veggies, you can find it here. The Purple Wok Co has nailed the taste and flavours of these oriental specials and you can depend on them to deliver on the taste!

We are especially a fan of the chicken Thai style wok, c chilli chicken mixed with fried rice, as well as any of the make your own wok options.

You will also find great snack options here, we recommend the kung pao chicken, the chilli potatoes and the crystal veg momos.

Knock Knock

If you're looking for a good bowl of noodles prepared with comfortable and familiar flavours, a hot bowl of soup or just some chilli chicken, give the Purple Wok Co. a try. Though a fairly small outlet, they serve delicious desi Chinese (and Thai) that we can never have enough of!
