I think this is my favorite restaurant! Just went the other day and were mulling the options over their salted peanuts. decided to go for the iceberg lettuce starter. They serve the lettuce with chestnuts corn etc combination and the word is Amazing! Its worth it to come here just for this. then we ordered our main course which was... More

We used to visit this place frequently years ago when the hotel was Holiday Inn and loved the food. After Novotel took over this was our first visit and I have to say that they have maintained their quality standards. The tables are more spaced out now unlike earlier when it was a little cramped. Service is surprisingly quick. Nice... More

One of the older Chinese restaurants in Mumbai with a great view, old word decor, Indian chinese, if your palette has graduated to the real thing then you maybe in for little disappointment, having said that generous quantity and decent service. Looks like lot of regular patrons dine here,

The food is some authentic Chinese served with great flavours and simple taste. Everyday rice is kind of family favourite, but need some improvement in schezwan rice, as it tastes more like star anise flavoured puloa than Chinese rice. Sometimes I don't see any one on the floor, staff need to be more attentive and some has to be on... More

The food here is excellent. The ambience in general is good. The only problem is mosquitoes. the restaurant staff tries to get rid of them but the problem does persist. so, please go prepared with Odomos or something so that you would be able to enjoy your food properly.

Amazing place for Indochinese food lovers !!! Fantastic location and if you can get a table by the window then nothing like it since you get a panoramic sea view !!! The staff is hospitable and friendly. Over all had a great experience !!! Only negative I can think of is the pricing !!!

Went there a few days ago, and was saddened by the fact that the old charm of the restaurant wasnt there anymore. The staff had changed , so had the quality of food.. The prices have risen considerably and is on the very expensive side. Hopefully they will get things right in the coming months..

Great food and service. The chau chu prawns are to die for and so is the white snapper. The minus point is the waiting time for the car....45 minutes...finally had to call for the hotel duty manager to get things sorted....sadly a bad end to a great dinner
