Easily one of the better Indian-Chinese restaurants on this end of town

Easily one of the better Indian-Chinese restaurants on this end of town and one which reminded me of how much I enjoy (and have missed) the Indian take on Chinese. In fact, I honestly believe Indian-Chinese warrants a category and name of its own: Indo-Chinese, Indonese, or even Chindian – yeah... read more

The menu looks great, but the food tastes really bad, not to mentioned it was served cold and over-cooked, i had tried this place twice during the last 2 months, and nothing changed. Actually you can get a better value for money and a better taste from any of the nearby fast-food Chinese outlets inside the Ibn Battuta Mall. I... More

Food is still ok ,though the stir fry vegetable with tofu is quite salty this time.The waiter on black uniform in batuta branch is not so friendly to the customer at all. He is so sarcastic and do not know proper customer service. But other waiters are ok. We just keep on coming because of the food, but after the... More

My husband and I were staying in the Ibn Battuta Gate Moevenpick and were looking for a restaurant nearby. We stumbled upon Soy in the China Court of the Ibn Battuta Mall. The outdoor court leading to the restaurant was beautiful and unexpected. Soy has a creative list of mocktails, which I enjoyed. For a starter, we had steamed buns.... More

when we want to order our food, the supervisor who wears black suits just showed 2 fingers to us without any words.i think it means waiting 2 mins. And when he was taking our order, he alway looked around to check the other tables' situation. That's really like a "supervisor". And the food is just so so, the wasabi prwan... More

I have visited this restaurant multiple times with my family and each time enjoy the outdoor seating , amazing food and a great service by the staff. The only challenge is long waiting on the weekends.

Nice outdoor seating but ridiculously too hot so we sat inside but was limited seating. Small restaurant.  The staff were efficient and helpful. We asked them to speed up as we had a film booked in the cinema and they were very helpful. Food was lovely and reasonably priced. ‎ I'd go back again. No spills, no thrills. Does the... More

I am a big fan of Chinese food. And this restaurant caught my meticulous taste buds. I am so inlove with the food from Chinese fried rice with prawns, salt and pepper calamari and mixed seafood soup was so super! Best to try the honey glaze noodles with icecream. Staff are also amazingly attentive and friendly.
