“Excellent Chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We had one of the signature dishes in this restaurant, the Peking duck. Preparation takes a while, but this time can be enjoyed sampling the dim sums as starters. Also, since the kitchen is partioned from the restaurant by a window, we had the opportunity of watching the chef work on 'our' duck.

The price is not something to complain about, considering the quality of the food, but for India it is expensive.

The restaurant is stylishly decorated and a bit formal. Not really romantic dining, especially considering the (in my opinion too low) temperature of the dining room.

Definitely one of the best (if not the best) restaurants for Chinese food provided you don't mind the cost

“The Best Chinese Food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is hands down the best chinese food I have ever had!!!!
The food is very expensive, reckon most people would eat on special ocassions, however the restaurant does not have any cozy seating for couples.....however they have two partioned sections to cater to larger groups.
The restaurant also has a singles menu (pre set) for travel guests who are staying at the hotel but I reckon it does not include the signature dishes and the menu was not too appealing.
A must try at the restaurant are:
Chicken Dry Red Chilly (starters) , Chicken Supreme Chilly and Oyster sauce (main course) along with the burn garlic fried rice.
Average expense for a couple would be around Rs 4000-5000 (without drinks) and starters/soups.

Would defintely visit again ......
