Orange Wok

Quick lunch was the plan but that did not happen! We went to Orange Wok, in Nungambakkam, above “The Raymond Store”. A side staircase leads you up to the place, which has both indoor and outdoor seating. The place is made up with simple solid colours yet with quirky light lamps. From the menu, we…

The Flying Elephant
