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

Opt for the buffet meal for lunch. They ply you with so many starters, all yummy, that you have no place left for the main meal. Left the restaurant with a very satisfied feeling. Real value for money.

During our recent visit to Chennai, we had dinner at Mainland China. The food was awesome and was the ambience. Service, though not bad, could surely have been better.

We tried a soup, dimsum platter and prawns in garlic sauce. The portions were good and I didn't order mains. The dimsum was ordinary but the accompanying sauce options were good. The batter on the prawns added volume to an otherwise medium sized prawn. I don't know why restaurants think they can get away this. The food was enjoyable but... More
