“The Best Food and Service We Ever Had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We happened to be in the Restaurant for our dinner on the Good Friday . As soon as one enters she is welcomed by more than life size 3 statues of Chinese nobles in the spacious waitng lounge .

We were led to our table in a very well furnished about 60 seated dining hall . I was very pleased to see lot more space between the tables so the guests were not compelled to listen others personal conversations .

The menucards were rich in appearance and nicely preared . Only problem was little but vital informations about the ingradients and recipe of the dish were missing and some items were repeated . I noticed Peppery lemon veg soup in two categories . I think its always better to have different items under different categories . Of course this is my personal view .

As we were not terribly hungry , we ordered for Orange pirojka and Alaska glass mocktails , Peppery lemon veg soup , Fish in spicy hot pot and Fried rice mix veg . Mocktails were really chilled and had slight hint of tanginess . We never tasted such a carefully prepared soup . The brocolli ,carrots , lettuce , mushrooms , etc . were so well cooked that they were crispy and tender . The soup was aplenty and tangy & enough peppery .

The fish was not very spicy but it was brought in a pot and was kept hot on a little Shigadi . Fish was delicious . Fried rice was excellent . Both the fish and rice were more than enough for both of us .

Let me tell you one thing . Additional sauces were not provided but the food was so authentically cooked that there was no need to add anything.

The one thing we appreciated the most was the waiter was very attentive . We never served ourselves . I have frequently noticed elsewhere that waiter serves on first two occassions and then comfortably forgets the guests . Thus we were quite impressed by the ambience , food and service .

It was not out of place to put on record that though we declined the chinese tea , it was offered us two more times .

In a nutshell we enjoyed our evening meals .

“Excellence in authenticity”

A great place to dine.Great food and excellent service. Try out the mock-tails. A bit of Chinese music can add to the flavour.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Beautiful ambience, wonderful service and best of all yummmm food. If u crave for some authentic chinese, mainland china is the place to go. Expensive but the taste is totally worth it. It is fresh and well prepared. Good portions and well presented. Overall we had an excellent experience.

“Authentic chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Authentic Chinese. Liked the lamb dishes though the vegeterian starters were not up to the mark. I feel it is slightly on the pricier side, but its worth going on occasions
