I had been to the Nungambakkam Hotel Aruna Mainland China. A wonderful setting with good space in between tables for privacy. The beats part are the Momos and the soup here. Just awesome. Plus beverages are served here which adds to the plus of this restaurant. I guess we have to make advance reservation in the weekend as even on... More

The first thing that strikes you when you enter Mainland China in Teynampet is the three Terracota warriors at the entrance. The decor was quite good and so was the layout and style of serving on a moving table, just as one would find in China. We ordered soup and dimsums for starters. The dimsums were cooked well, but the... More

I had brought a group of visiting students here for dinner. They thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. We were a group of seven and between us we ordered a wide range of appetizers including dimsums, main courses, rice, noodles, drinks, and desserts so everyone got to try all the different dishes. It was all very good. Nice ambience too.... More

I have been to Mainland China, Cenotaph branch quite a few times due to its vicinity to my workplace. Being in sales, hosting lunch and dinner is a common affair. One place to confidently visit along with guests is the Mainland China restaurant. It has a large space, buffet option (depending on time criticality) and excellent ambience. The mocktail options...

The starters for the Buffet menu are exceptionally good. For the starters there are lot many fish and chicken items. The Main course items are just OK. Nothing Great.

It's a top notch experience in Chinese food. Once you eat there you would know what all were you missing. Kimchi Salad, soups, main course desserts everything is a delicious. They serve some kind of pesto sauce along with chilli and soya sauce which is lip smacking. One could enjoy either buffet or ala carte. Both are equally great. They... More

Surprising number of starters. Main course is the same as in every chinese restaurant (noodles and fried rice). However, there were quite good number of sumptuous starters. Good ambience. I visited the one in OMR. Not much of parking space. So, we have to plan if we are visiting during peak hours. We went for buffet lunch @ 12. Though... More
