Authentic Chinese food, but at a high price

The chefs are trained either in China or by Chinese chefs who act as consultants. The result is very good. The food is generally excellent -- good hearty soups, a whole range of noodles, and very good meat dishes, especially the lamb. Very different from the usual Indian Chinese food, which is full... read more

Not the typical Kolkatta chinese food, yet very good food overall. It has a decent variety for the vegetarians as compared to other Kolkatta chinese restaurants. The prawns were awesome and the ambiance good.

Chinoiserie offers an excellent Chinese food at Taj Bengal. The ambience in the restaurant is typical Chinese. It appears you are eating in a Chinese restaurant in China. The quality of Chinese dishes are lovely. We enjoyed having Chinese dinner at the restaurant.

Nice resturant inside taj for authentic Chinese food. Their soups are awesome. Main course are grand. Desserts are innovative. They pioneered arrangements of sitting which are copied by many. Kingly ambience gives you confidence and satisfaction. It's soothing.

I had (not anymore) been an ardent fan of Chino for many years, first having been there nearly 10 years ago, and many many times thereafter. Recently however I felt this restaurant has completely lost it's charm, food quality and everything else which at one time made this one of the premier restaurants of the city. In a way like...

It is a must visit place for Chinese food in Kolkata. Yes, it is expensive, but, the ambience, service and food are all worth the visit.

Being a regular there , I am almost treated like a member of their family. Pan fried chili Betki , stirred fried garlic chicken and chinese greens can be a good thing to bet on

Chinoiserie is one of the finest Chinese resturant in kolkata. The food is amazing and the menu is very elaborate. The ambience is perfect, service is good. A perfect place to spend time with your loved ones. The prices are pretty high compared to other good Chinese resturant.
