“Authentic Chinese with Super Fast Service”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Being a family who ALWAYS eats chinese food, Min han is the best place for authentic chinese food in Colombo. We have been here about thrice and have ordered (take away) for more than 10 times in the course of the past 8 months. It does not have all the niceties of other chinese restaurants - no ceramic plates, no nice water glasses, no proper tables, old old chairs, old spoons, no dessert even!!! BUT, the food is really nice - and yes it wont be fully chinese like in china but its authentic and has a variety of tastes minus the greasiness of other chinese places. the service is SUPER fast (an entire meal of more than 8 varieties will be served in the course of 30 mins!!!) thanks to Wijepala (the only Sinhala speaking person there - may be the only proper english speaking person too) who can SOMETIMES bring you a changed version of your ordered dish (this is due to mis-communication which happens from the order taking to the kitchen) but on most times will deliver your food with lightning speed. You will need a sense of humbleness, patience (for Wijepala's weird speaking manner sometimes - due to his work load) and an openness to eat to enjoy Min Han to the fullest. But this is total value for money and with BIG portions and good taste, there's nothing to complain about.
Family favourites : The special seafood fried rice itself, fried/steamed pork dumplings/sweet and sour pork chops (make sure you say pork cHOPS), sweet potato leaves with garlic, garlic prawns and the fried whole chicken.

“Value for money”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

It is a very simple eating place. Nothing fancy.
Food portions are big and the dumpling is good.
Soup and mutton are delicious.

Vegetable and noodles are a bit oily.
Average only 800 rps per-person.
The place was full with Japanese and Chinese by 7pm.

The lady boss and daughter are very nice and welcoming.
Will visit again.

“Amazing find - well done tripadvisor!!!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We would never have found Min Han if it weren't for tripadvisor - we took a gamble on the recommendations of a total of 9 reviews & were not at all disappointed. Min Han is a no frills restaurant down a side street in Colombo but don't be fooled - I can honestly say that was one of the best Chinese meals I've ever had; portions are big, food was delicious & the service was good too. Highly recommended are the dumplings & the pork special dish. Excellent!!

“Good value and tasty Chinese”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We have eaten in the restaurant here and had take away. In both instances the food was prepared and served very quickly.

Can't recommend this enough, a wide variety of food on the menu all at very reasonable prices. The portion size is big, small portions are more than big enough for two people but the waiter will explain all this to you if you ask.

Highly recommend the Beijing dumplings - real treat with the chilli, garlic and ginger dipping sauce! See you next week!
