Most Chinese restaurants in India are terrible and I try to avoid them. My sister however insisted o Chinese food and we landed up here. We started with some Dim Sum and this was excellent. The hot and sour soup in India is usually so overpowering that your taste buds are destroyed and swallow anything given after that. I was... More

There aren't proper Chinese restaurants in Chennai and so is this place. Its not "mainland" Chinese. The whole menu is an Indian version of Chinese dishes. This place is not as great as it boasts and I feel you get similar food in small local restaurants around Chennai. And no harm in visiting this place of you love that.

The buffet menu is same everyday and horrible place for veggies. Even the deserts are the standard vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and strawberry crush, same pastry, honey laced crunchies. It is a one time visit place it don't want to eat the same stuff over and over.

The ambiance is nice but slightly noisy, very clean though. A good place that has been serving tasty indo Chinese food for quite a while now. The good thing - they still manage to serve good quality and tasty food! The service is a bit poor especially on a crowded weekend. You might fight yourself having to call the steward... More

I dropped in for lunch and found this to be one of the best chinese restaurants in town. They have the best vegetarian starters. The portions in this place are huge and everything just tastes so good. The ambiance is warm and gives you a sense of calm. Overall a great restaurant.
