Menu is the same everyday

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.

Mainland China on OMR Road is amazing for the starters and the staff service, but it has to work on its main menu.

Mainland China on the OMR road is simply fantastic. Good food, excellent service and the ambience is simply superb. All together makes you feel at home. A family place to stop by and rejoice.

We enjoy the Chinese food at Mainland China and are a frequent visitor. Their buffet is value for money and worth every penny. The choice is also good. The desert section can be improved though. We have visited three of their restaurants in Chennai.
