“Good food stick to the vegetarian option.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

Stick to rice noodles, tofu, vegetarian soups and veg dishes and you can't go wrong. Please do not order fish dishes. Like most restaurants and hotels they serve you defrosted fish. The waiters will convince you it is fresh in that day but it is not true! You will be able to tell and then have to send it back. Please ask the waiter about how spicy the dish is as some can be quite hot. Clean place, good for lunch, good variety of starters and soups.

“Enjoyed my B'Day Party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2011

Mainland China: Chandigarh - June 11 '2011.
It was my B'Day and all our friends planned to visit Mainland China. Great Ambience, exceptional service and AWESOME FOOD delighted us. The Main Course recommendations by the Manager certainly helped us a great deal. Specialty to look for was Crackling Spinach. Chilly garlic noodles is a must have on the Menu.

“Chinese cusine with Indian Hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2011

The restuarant scores on ambience, hospitality, food and speed of service. Excellent ambience which offers both privacy and comfort, a well trained staff are very efficient and menu that is different from your typical Chinese menu you see in other restaurants.
What I liked is the speed of service. They do not take more than 10 minutes to serve your order. (at least the food that we ordered). The complimentary jasmine tea was also vey nice.
The best part is that each staff member is adept in use of chopsticks and are more than willing to teach as customer how to use them. During our dinner , three different staff members including the stewards helped us learn the art, as a result by the end of the dinner, all of us were eating with chopsticks.
They also presented the kids with chopsticks to take home.
The menu is also not very pricy ( Veg meal for a family of 5 cost @ Rs 1500 )

“An experience to paradise..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2010

Me, my mom and dad had gone to Mainland China where we found a whole new world..A world where perfect food shows its elusive face..The glowing settings made it feel private and we enjoyed an evening which was surreal.. The food was an amalgamation of tastes which sent our taste buds tingling with delight. Amount spent was Rs. 1200 for three people and dishes enjoyed Soup, Momos, Veg Noodle, Veg fried rice and a Thai Curry.
