We have visited this restaurant often. This time it was a bit disappointing. Very loud family groups with screaming children was the first downer. Service was fine. Food was very average. Dim Sum needs improvement. A bit tasteless. The rest of the food was over spicy. I think local tastes have overtaken this restaurant.

We visited this restaurant in December 2015 with our family of 5 people for dinner. The restaurant was neat and clean with good sized tables and seating arrangements, friendly waiters and great service. Valet parking is available. The food is tasty and flavoursome. The crackling spinach was a very unique tasting experience. One must try this to believe. The dim... More

We went to Mainland China restaurant as part of a team outing. The ambiance was good, service was nice. We chose buffet menu which was served to our tables. I would recommend visiting the place once.

There is nothing authentic about this place. Having said that, don't think the majority of customers can stomach authentic Chinese. If you are into deep / batter fried Chinese dishes, then this is the place for you. Good ambience and selection of beverages. My suggestion is that they have a few authentic dishes or a proper dim sum.

MLC is that one place frequented by us on having cravings for Delicious Dimsum , wontons, chicken or for that matter any Chinese delicacy. We usually go for buffet as that is more reasonable for people like us who want variety unlimited. MLC is one choice which we boldly opt for casual Chinese dining with full trust on the quality,...

Firstly the price is too high compared to the quality in taste. The items on the menu are chinese but the taste is mo different than any other restaurant made dishes of Chinese cuisine. The desserts and starters are good. But the main course just fails to stand up to point. The service sometimes, is kinda bad. But for those... More
