Nice chines

If you want to have proper chinese food this is the place.... starters are good, the sauces should be separately purchased when you order a dish and this makes the entire dish a bit costly.. but the dishes are good....

Had to wait for a long time to have a seat. Staff least bothered about couples. They were behind big families getting seats. Felt that my stomach is a bit upset after eating there this time.

Mainland China has a well thought out Menu catering to the whole family. It is not only the menu but the food too that will keep you wanting to return. Will be complete if there was Pork on the Menu. Found that very lacking to an otherwise complete experience.

It was an excellent service and good chinese food. Children enjoyed the options. Vegetable fried rice with sweet and sour vegetable was very good. The soup and spring rolls were nice too

I had come here expecting a typical indianized chinese flavor but in reality, the flavors of the food have been preserved. Indians typically mask the flavor of Crab/shrimp/fish with masala but the original flavor has been retained for all the dishes at this place which gave me a good and authentic feel of the dish.

i love this place for its authentic chinese food. the service is good as well. the best time is to go for dinner when we can relax and eat the food along with hot chinese food. they have a good variety of both vegetarian and nonvegetarian food. i always love to go to the main land china restaurant in Teynampet......

For those who love Chinese food in India ( the original Chinese is in China,Singapore and I am saying this with experience ).This place is good as it suits the palate.Some of the dishes are worth trying and a nice place to go out for lunch or dinner with the whole family. Dr.Javed Rasheed
