Went here for lunch...happened to run into a buffet. People looking for authentic Chinese cooking ,shouldn't come here (the advertisement on the telly is misleading)...but this restaurant does cater to Indian taste buds and the food is not all that bad. For those watching their weight ,the buffet is a bad idea-most of the non-vegetarian options followed the general theme... More

We have visited this restaurant for official team lunch, the ambiance was really good. As I am a pure veg couldn't taste or comment about any Non-veg cuisine. They have served soups & starters, then it was a buffet lunch, hence we selected our main course. Overall the taste was fine, deserts were of mediocre taste. Can visit this place... More

Well went there for Dinner on a Holi day. Was told that they had the Buffet. Opted for the same. Was amazed a t the quality of starters they served. The vegetarian options were better than the non veg options which were served to our table. The main course and desserts were average. may go again.

What can one say! In the ad, the foodie is fully justified in kissing the chef!I have been a fan of Mainland China (MC) for ever since their opening. I am amazed at the sheer outstanding consistency of quality that MC magically turns out year after year – anywhere in the country be it Chennai or Lucknow, Hyderabad,Kolkata or Pune!!... More

The restaurant in Cenotaph road has a very good typical Chinese ambience. The service is professional. The quality of food is rich and tastes of authentic Chinese. The starters served as part of the buffet is exclusive and is very enjoyable. The maincourse is very good especially the noodles and the dessert of course is enjoyable with few typical Chinese...

We went to this restaurant in Phoenix Mall, Chennai, for lunch. It was almost full that time. It truly justifies the name 'Mainland China' Authentic Chinese food, unlike many Chinese joints in India. We had a four course meal starting with soup, starter then main course & finally Deserts. Everything was delicious & finger licking. The service was also good,... More

I have been into 4 branches of mainland china in chenna viz @ Aruna hotel, T.nagar, Cenotaph road & Okkiyam (thuraipakkam). they maintain the same/ constant ambience in all their branches. Ambience is really good. Advisable to go for buffet instead of a-lacarte as the latter is comparatively expensive. Lattie, I visited with my colleagues, on 8th March'14, women's day,... More

I am rating their branch at Hotel Aruna. Their menu is varied and the food is always tasty. What I like is that they try to maintain the authentic Chinese flavours instead of randomly throwing in chilli powder, like many restaurants do. I feel even Mainland can reduce their heat content. Their week day buffet is very good value for... More

As we entered the brightly lit hotel, my hopes leveled a bit from negative. Experienced nine dishes from different regions of China in all. More one eats, higher the probabilities of finding flaws. Not here. All dishes were top notch and value for money to dine in a Star environment. MLC is easily one of the better options for Chinese... More
