This was indeed a delectable Halal food experience at Charisma D’Venue introducing interesting dishes with a blend of East Meet West cuisine.
Charisma D'Venue is a Halal semi-fine dining restaurant not only offering a unique gastronomy experience for diners but also a Muslim wedding services provider and catering services.
We were served with three different types of signature drinks.
Charisma Lemon Tea ($3.80) This drink comes from brewed tea leaves and has the strongest flavour amongst the drinks.
On the left of the photo was the Iced Thai Milk Tea ($4.00) was a disappointment as I expected the tea to be rich in milky flavour unfortunately it was too diluted.
The Nojito drink ($5.50) on the right side of the photo was made from fresh squeezed lemon and non alcholic. Though it has a slight minty taste this drink is also too diluted.
For starters we were served with Portobello Crispy Mushroom ($7.90) dipped with Ketchup Manis sauce. Though the Portobello slices were not crispy the sauce made from sweet and spicy soy sauce was savoury.
The second starter was the crispy battered squid ring ($8.90) with Arrabiatta sauce.
Not crispy as expected but the sauce made from spicy tomato puree complemented the appetizer well.
Tom Yum Pasta ($10.90) from the main menu a pretty interesting linguine seafood dish. The sauce has a creamy tom yum base but a little too sourish. Also known as Ong Bak Pasta.
Chef's Recommendation Bandung Pasta ($9.90) was a dish with a twist to Mee Bandung. An Indonesian dish but prepared to cater our local taste bud with tomato ketchup sauce.
The sauteed linguine pasta with ingredients of minced meat and prawns topped with a poached egg was yummy. A combination of sweetness and yet spiciness in one dish.
There's definitely no denying the importance of matching a dish with the perfect
Though Briyani Lamb Shank ($19.90) was the most talked about dish of this restaurant and also the Chef's Recommendation, I noticed this dish was not well received.
The tender braised lamb shank served with flavoured Basmatic rice and Dalcha was yummy. The meat was soft and the dalcha was tasty. This was the ony dish that I had the opportunity for a second helping.
These Flaming Wings ($7.90) from the main course menu was indeed finger licking.
A korean version of deep friend chicken wings but much more spicy with the restaurant secret sauce marinade.
Two plates were served and we had the opportunity to have a wing each.
The Ocean D'Venue ($10.90) served with battered tempura fish, french fries, salad, fluffy Basmatic rice and strawberry flavoured coleslaw.
Unfortunately this serving was too small for all of us and I managed to scoop a very small portion to taste inorder to review this dish. The fish meat the main ingredient of the dish was too soft.
Accompanied with two dips Arrabbiata sauce and coleslaw mayo sauce.
To conclude the dinner, we were served with Charisma Chocolate Fondue ($9.90) with strawberries, mango cubes, pineapple cubes, grapes and rock melon cubes together with marshmellows.
Most of the fruits were overiped.
The chocolate fondue was a bit too thick.
The Waffle with Ice Cream ($9.90) platting was impressive.
However, the texture of the waffle was soft and not fluffy. Served with preserved cherries, sliced bananas with generous amount of chocolate sauce and topped with a large scoop of chocolate ice cream.
Chocolate Overload ($6.50). Topped with whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles alongside some wafer rolls and chocolate wafer bars and pretzel sticks.
The chocolate milk was too light and diluted as I was expecting a richer milky shake.
The dishes at this restaurant are reasonably priced and the locality of this place is conveniently located with bus service 33 just opposite this eatery and a spacious carpark across the road.
