Dimsums available here

In South City, they have quite a renowned set-up. From outside, it looks inviting- cosy inside. If you have an advance reservation, then, well and good. Staff is polite and helpful. I went to try only dimsums: Wantons and Siu Mai. I found it fresh and well steamed. However, you get only a choice of... read more

Long time favourite and a wonderful option for chinese. After years, the quality remains as good as always. Crackling spinach was an experimental dish we ordered and it was delightful. Ask for some free Jasmine tea at the end of your meal and thou shall not regret! Prices are a bit prickly though. Average cost per person without drinks easily... More

Mainland China is a place where you can have Indianised Chines food. Its more of a dignified dhaba and famous for its buffet. Though it does at times pride in calling itself a fine dining restaurant it lacks the finesse of the same. The waiters and the Captains while presenting the check anticipate that a hefty tip is given to... More

I've been to numerous chinese restaurants, hakka, trinca's, mandarin, tung fong and the like, and MC is up with the best. Wide selection of dishes, mouthwatering taste, okayish price, and a superb buffet(had lunch) selection. Really liked the ambience and helpful staff. Recommended for an occasional fine dining experience, but for regular dining, naahh.

This is the signature restaurant of the Chain,as this was the starting point of the group. Famous for Chinese food. We tried Buffet Lunch . The price is slightly on the higher side but still looking for the buffet layout, I find it ok. It was Rs: 850/- per person, but included Starters, Main course & desserts - All unlimited.... More

Superb lunch buffet serviced with jasmine or green tea to wash down the extra food we consumed as it was so tasty that we could'nt stop eating. The last finishing touch to our wonderful lunch was done by vanill ice cream with caramelised walnuts and wantons

This restaurant has been a favourite of ours ever since it opened its doors in the 1990s. It started off as a great place for authentic Chinese food within the city without having to go to Taj Bengal or to Tangra. We were visiting after a long break and were a bit wary about changes that might have reduced the... More

I visited this restaurant in Dec'14 with my family and my friends family. It was a great experience. The restaurant has a very big spread. We choose to have the buffet which came with the complementary drinks (either 1 beer or 1 fruit juice) along with 3 types of veg and 5 types of non-veg starters. The main course consists... More
