For main course we had Chicken friend rice (regular) along with Crispy fried garlic chicken (large). The portions were food. Food was very tasty as usual. Service was excellent. Sadly we... More

Perhaps the best in class Chinese restaurant in Kolkata that offers an ideal combination of quality Chinese food and Indian hospitality in a excellent ambiance with a touch of class. Guests of any origin can be confidently invited to this place for a lunch or dinner. Moreover, if there is a plan to celebrate an occasion like anniversary or birthday... More

The chines ala carte that we had was awesome. The taste was extremely good, particularly the chicken clear soup (not the actual menu name). The ambiance was also very good. The cost is on a bit higher side, though.

Have visited this Chinese restaurant many times. It has always been a good experience The decor has become rather old & the management should do something more innovative. The menu could be made more interesting. May be varieties of Dim Sum. Service continues to be good. Quality of food served is steadily good. But for regular visitors it is getting... More

Mainland china is a place where Chinese buffet is served. In the buffet we get lots of variety of both veg and non-veg dishes. As I am a vegetarian I really enjoy the Chinese buffet. In this restaurant food tastes good but not excellent . The staff service is also good.

The flagship and oldest of the chain, had deteriorated with the overall standards having dropped in both cuisine and service. The food was plebian, about on par with any foodcarts serving, though the prices certainly was'nt. A bit of a ripoff actually.
