“Nice chinese food in Guwahati”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

There are a lot of restaurants in Guwahati serving Chinese food. This one is one of the better ones. The selection includes Pork besides Chicken dishes.
The preparation is quite fine and not too elaborate. Rates are a little on the higher side for a place like Guwahati. Service is ok and so so, nothing great with the waiters getting frequently distracted by the flat screen TV hanging on the wall, making it a little hard to get their attention.

One of my complaints when eating out is when the service becomes overbearing and you don't enjoy your food anymore, although this is not entirely the case here, there is a tendency on the part of the waiters to be a little too helpful which can be a good thing and a bad thing, depending on what one wants. I like to serve my own food without someone watching how many spoonfuls I have finished, so no I absolutely hate it when someone runs over to me when my plate starts running empty.

I found the decor inviting and not overdone and the ambience is nice although the place itself is not too big.

On my scale of 1 - 10 for chinese food, this place would rank somewhere around a 6.5 to 7, which is good. However, I feel the pricing, which makes me think twice before going in, could have been more reasonable. There are other good places in Guwahati, serving the same kind and quality of food at much lesser rates.

“Great Food but Slow Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

A very good restaurant located in a prime area. The food was delicious but the service was a little slow. The expense is a little more than average Guwahati standards but a good experience, especially with family.

“Pleasantly surprised with the taste and quality of Food! Great variety and ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

I ran into this restaurant with a friend, visiting Guwahati after many years and was most pleasntly surprised! The place gets full points for taste, quality, variety and ambience. The menu is quite exhaustive and the service is very friendly. The restaurant is in two levels and we went in straight for the starters. I was delighted to find khimchi and vinegrated vegetables as starters in this place!
We had ordered for Chicken Tai Mei which was crispy fried chicken along with shredded lamb crispy fried, both of which were delicious. The place also offers a fair deal of mocktails and we tried the blue curacao which was excellent. The main course was burnt garlic prawn fried rice and kung pao chicken which I must confess was brilliant!
The decor is good, but price is a little on the steeper side. However, for food of this quality, I guess they will be able to distinguish themselves in the city!
Definitely a must try with friends and family!
