Reviewed August 9, 2014

The place is a large lounge that has seating like a restaurant. The service is quick and abrupt, nothing wrong with that (anyone who's been there and been served by the lone waiter will know what I'm talking about). The food is delicious which makes for the not-so-lovely ambience. The fried dumplings are a must eat :)

If you are looking for luxury or comfortable ambiance then this is not your place.
If you are looking for clean and tidy setting then this is certainly does not suit you.
But if you are searching for authentic Chinese food, good price (no taxes only service charge), fast and friendly service, then you must try Min Han.

If you want a dining experience, this is certainly NOT the place to go. But if you just want to EAT Chinese food, it's an okay place to try.

Having read positive feedback about Min Han, we decided to pay a visit for dinner. I doubt if I would go there again. Overall experience is pretty much average, and nothing really remarkable.

First impression is horrid, run down place, overdue maintenance work cluttered and disorganized, piles of uncleared plates on tables (one waiter, probably not easy to keep up with load). Dirty furniture, and tables covered with greasy polythene sheets that had not been changed for some time. In summary, a PHI visit would probably close the place up for a while due to cleanliness and hygiene issues.

The waiter tries to keep up with the load with great difficulty. He is helpful and efficient in his own way. Make sure you get what you order as things tend to get mixed-up. Food comes very fast,(in fact too fast for comfort.) served in discolored melamine dishes, that reduces your appetite by a notch. Taste is not too different from any other Chinese restaurant in town. Personally i don't think it's less greasy than other places.

Also saw take-away orders being mixed-up, with half opened packs returned only to be re-packed and given to the rightful owners. The waiter then taps away on the calculator to manually prepare your bill (please do check the totals). Please take CASH.. as they don't take cards. Overall prices are reasonable.

In conclusion, an average experience all around, and rating very low in hygiene and cleanliness. Enter at your own risk. A Chinese restaurant would not always become authentic, simply because it is run by a Chinese owner.

The restaurant itself is very shabby.there seem to be a confusion that Chinese ownership = authentic good food. Having said that the Chinese ladies in charge were very efficient. However the local waiter who takes the orders seem to think being the court jester will earn him a good tip.every time the order was being read out for confirmation & mistakes corrected which were plenty, he would stick his tongue out & mock .how anyone can even think such behaviour is funny or apt beats me.stayed back as I was being hosted. Recommended food for 10 people were way over the top costing rs18 000. When the host tried to cut down on the quantity the waiter insisted he was a better judge.
If u do happen to visit , go by yr judgement when ordering the dishes.
Food was very average oily & certainly the sweet corn & crab soup was just stirred eggs in hot water. Dishes were served under 15 mts & tasted like dishes cooked within a short time , (cooked without care. )Most dishes are fried with a batter that tastes the same . There was no variety in style / taste of cooking within the different dishes.
For Similar price range but cleaner & tastier chinese food ,surely restaurants such as peach valley , 88 can win hands down.
Highly overrated , I would go for a different restaurant for Chinese food.
