    Time Out awards are awards for mediocrity – how da hell did Celestial Court, Yut Kee, Saravana Bhavan, Annalakshmi, Rakuzen get nominated or win?! Beats the hell out of me. These are probably awards for most popular eateries rather than best tasting food eateries!

    Kampachi as No.1 ??? I remember few years me and my friends went equotorial kampachi restaurant but manager told us short pants are not allowed to enter (equotorial hotel kampachi) very rude. and we (Asian) saw few caucasian white guys with short pants Sitting inside their restaurant! Ok this is years back but ever since I have black listed you (kampachi) for life!
