Super & Authentic Chinese

Mainland China offers a great experience of fine dining with a fab buffet as well as 'a la carte'.The quality and delicacy of taste makes Mainland China spread in all its branches about the best in the country, effortlessly surpassing the five star hotels and ranking their restaurants.

It is a very nice place for family get together and also for friends. Looks very neat and clean, Food quality is very good but expensive. Serving time is quite okay. Ideal place for weekend lunch or dinner with family.

This is the best of this chain restaurants if you like Chinese food.... There is no.other near to it. A bit pricy but taste makes it all. Service may be an issue when overbooked

It is a nice place to visit for foodies. Chinese are obviously the main attraction. However starters are also mouthwatering, specially the prawn preparations are excellent. One must try these. You can have your drink also, though a little bit costly. Main courses are relatively less compare to other Mughlai restaurant. But I must say the foodies must be here... More

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.

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
