Authentic Chinese

Good Ambiance, good authentic Chinese fare, good service and good servings. Fried rice and noodles are good, so are other dishes like peppery lemon soup, hot & sour soup, konjee crispy lamb; honey noodles with almond flakes along with ice-cream is a good dessert.

Have been here couple of times. The food here is amazing. I has the best crab meat dish here. Unfortunately they have stopped the fabulous buffet. The management should consider opening it again.

I frequent this place quite often. The last time i visited this place after a gap of 6 months gave me surprises. They served Tomato Basil soup in buffet (Unbelievably chinese). I was looking forward to tomyum soup, lung fung, clear soup or at-least a hot and sour chinese soup but tomato basil soup is way off for Chinese. Every... More

Its once you feel to have Chinese, you should visit mainland China. As the name suggest, authentic Chinese food of good quality is available here. Interior is okay and service good. Little pricey but okay once in a while.

We visited this place for dinner and we must say for the first time in many visits the entire family of about 12 people were thoroughly disappointed. To begin with the air conditioning was very poor and our repeated requests to attend to the same was of no avail. The staff were not well informed either about the menu or... More

Arguably, Chinese food in India is a genre by itself: restaurants modify their style to suit the Indian tongue. I guess Mainland China is closest to Chinese Chinese. The variety and quality of food are good, the service is attentive and the ambience is good. Food is on the expensive side but worth it. I have also tried their restaurant... More

Love Mainland China = great ambiance & even been mouth watering authentic Chinese spread. Been a frequent visitor over the years, and each visit brings back fond memories of Bdays, Anniversaries, Business meets of years gone by. If you love Chinese, this is 'the place' to go berserk especially over buffet!!

If you don't mind the final bill, this is a good place to have some good, not MSG overloaded Chinese food. I've never had authentic Chinese food so I haven't a clue what it tastes like. But this place isn't too bad at all. The food does taste good and its fairly fresh tasting as well. The buffet is a... More
