Only place in chennai for good quality chinese food . The portions are generous , tasty but a bit oily . The lighting is too dim needs to be a bit more bright . A dedicated wash area for the restaurant would be appreciated .

it was a really disappointing visit to the restaurant last week. We were served cold rice, when questioned, got a very rude reply from the waiters. They are least bothered about their customers. very bad experience.
