Hunan Square is one of the latest to join the list of Asian restaurants in the city. Located in Electronic City, the space is defined by a wall covered in Chinese alphabets and illuminated by golden lighting.

As we made ourselves comfortable, a couple of soups were served to us — Chicken Tomka Soup and Manchow Soup. The classic Thai soup, Tomka, was a creamy broth made using coconut milk, aromatic herbs and spices, while the popular Manchow, with mixed vegetables, garlic, ginger and herbs, was on point. It was the perfect start to the winter evening.
