This is a good place to have Indo Chinese food. They have a nice system where you select what you require along with the quantities in a paper. Service was fast and smooth the night we had dinner here. The costs work out to be Rs 160 - 200 per head.

I have asked around and found that most people who come here want to remember that first date, the old crush, the class picnic, the Sunday day-out from boarding and such like. We come here almost everytime we are passing through - because this is where we had our first meal together as a newly married couple.
I must agree with what most others (I have asked) say - Shinkows is not as good as we remember it to be. Could it be that old occasion that made everything else, including the food, seem exquisite?
What I must say is that it still has that old world charm. Old waiters who carry the "order form" around into which you write the serial number of the dish you want. On this occasion, the fried rice, "wet" rice, the chilly pork and chicken dishes were just about OK. The service was quick and efficient. But it lacked that something...was it the spice?
Like I said the memories made up for all that.

This place is a medieval times, dimly lighted, chinese style diner. Food is expensive, but it the closest you can get to good chinese food in this small hill town. Keep to the basic items instead of trying exotic things from the menu.

Dont expect the kind of chinese food we get in good restaurants in Bangalore or Mumai and the choices are not many.

Not the cleanest place, but the food was excellent, service was great, and prices were economical. I would go back.
