“Again & Again & Again, you will never get tired”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Probably the best Chinese restaurant you can get in any hill station in India. Drive from Coimbatore on a Sunday morning probably start at 9.30am, drive through the picturesque Kothagiri route, very own European ambiance guaranteed through the tea gardens, reach Ooty by 12, and you feel the right hunger for a savoring Chinese meal. Shinkows is the place, cult menu card with items having numeric codes which you write down when the waiter hands over the note pad. 13B chilly chicken is probably the most sought after favorite by visitors amongst other coded delicacies. Service is good and the place is neat and clean. Start back to Coimbatore by 2 or 3 Pm after a scrumptious meal. It will be a trip your senses will savor for a long time.

“Nostalgia”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Good food but very hot and crowded in May. Although we had a booking we had to wait for some time. The restauraunt was very crowded and hot because of lack of ventilation. The food was very good and as a regular haunt during our school days, this is always a must visit restauraunt during out class get togethers.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

The waiters seemed not to want any business. It was almost as though they were on strike.

The quality of food too seemed to deteriorated. We have been eating here over the past 4 decades. It has been our favourite place and I felt very sad to see its downhill slide.
