One goes to a eatery with expectation of a good food in quiet atmosphere and good setting and reasonable cost. This place has a reputation that draws you there with an expectation. Ambience was good. Service to ones satisfaction. Food was good but not extraordinary. Quantity fair. Noise made me feel I was in a place like a pub. Some... More

Walking into this iconic chain in India is always a good experience. After many visits around the country, we decided to visit this franchisee just around the Chinese New Year in 2013. A well thought buffet, excellent interiors to match the occasion and a very delightful staff attended on us. I would surely recommend this in this part of the... More

Mainland China is among the very best places if not the BEST, when it comes to Chinese food. I've visited the Dhole Patil restaurant number of times, and each time the food, whether soups or starters of the main course have been fabulous.

The ambience is really good. The menu and preparations are excellent. Their starters are fantastic. It is probably the best place for Chinese food in India. Worth visiting.

My second visit to Mainland China Aundh was not satisfactory at all. The order of dishes came randomly as per the kitchens capacity. The temperature of food was mostly inappropriate. The variety in the menu is rather restricted to Indian gusto than it would allow to experience a Chinese kind of cuisine. I would not recommend this restaurant if you... More

The Chinese food over here is of food quality overall. The soups are good, the starters cater to both veg and non veg lovers alike, the rice is less oily, and the crab and lobster taste quite well with the Chinese sauces. The service is good and tapers off a bit during rush hours, but its not a big concern.... More

This is certainly one of the top 3-4 places for Chinese in Pune. Its not really very cramped but I would certainly prefer little more spread out table settings than what right now is. From food choices and taste, its good. Dish like Crackling Spinach needs perfection as otherwise its not tasty at all. As many times as I go... More
