Chopsticks is all but living on its legacy. There was a time when it won a number of awards. However, it is no more the great Chinese restaurant it used to be. Even in the absence of a strong leader in the kitchen, the food is not bad, but it borders on the kitty party chow chow and Chinjabi variety. The décor betrays the confusions of bania baroque. And yet there is a large clientele that swears by Chopsticks. The weekend buffet lunch is a good spread. You could try the good old Chicken Sweet Corn Soup, Sesame Toast, Thai Chicken, Barbeque Chicken Wings, Cottage Cheese Stuffed Jade Balls, Pan Grilled Chicken Gyoza, Fish Tempura, Crispy Aromatic Ducks, Chicken Sui Mui, Mongolian Chicken, Bacon Wrapped Prawns, Bangkok Curry, Phad Thai Noodles and Fuzian Fried Rice. The mini Chopstick Express is the more affordable version — a microcosm of the monolith. Clearly, Chopsticks has seen better days.
