For those who don't know, China Town was the new-age Chinese restaurant in the mid-1980s. Until then, there were the only the tired looking Chung King (near Musee Musical on Mount Road), Southern Chinese (opposite the Thousand Lights Mosque on Mount Road), Nanking (on Peters Road) and Waldorf (next... read more

When you are in Chennai please do not miss out eating at China Town, cathedral road. Once you enter you are accosted to a seat and the wonderful experience starts from there (only issue the narrow lane through which you have to pass through to enter the restaurant). The soup is mind blowing - being a vegetarian I choose either... More

Did not opt for buffet since it was closing time. Ordered steam boat which was prepared on our table over gas burner. The taste was ok, but the quantity was for more than two people, other two dishes was of ordinary taste. To sum up , it was over priced lunch with average taste.

Went to the restraunt with my wife at 3 pm, so we could not try the buffet. The best thing I liked about the place was that unlike some restraunts the staff never made us rush through the menu by telling it was closing time. The food was tasty, the menu expansive, the staff very courteous.

We had gone here to get good Chinese food and lo and behold - we were not disappointed. Plus we had nice cold beers to boot. This is an ideal place to go to get good Chinese food, the quantity was large portions, the quality was good and the overall staff treatment was above par. Strongly recommended

We had been to China Town for dinner. It is a pleasant place and with a good ambience. The waiters were excellent and the food was equally good. Wonder if the portion sizes have become sightly smaller though. Overall a good experience.

We were there for Christmas Lunch. We tried out the veg and non veg buffet and also the a la carte items. The service was quick initially. Once the crowds started swelling the quality went down. I do get it about how things could be on a Festive day.. but that is what successful and famous businesses are all about... More
