I recently visited Jia for some authentic asian cuisine and while the taste and presentation of the food was great, I was shocked to learn that the restaurant adds MSG in most of their dishes. We ordered Sushi and Chicken Dumplings and were told (upon asking as I am allergic to MSG), that most of their dishes have MSG as the sauces are imported and come pre-packaged. We were told that most of the gravy dishes were not prepared from scratch in the kitchen and relied on tin cans that were imported from overseas. We were then recommended a dish that did not have MSG which to my delight was light on the tummy and tasty as well. In the end we ordered a huge chocolate dessert which was awesome. I liked the ambience but sadly won't be returning to Jia.

Close to the Taj and Gateway of India, this restaurant presents delightful Chinese food . The soft shell crab was a delight and all the dishes, though the servings are small as compared with other Chinese restaurants, are good in taste and flavour. A little expensive, worth a visit if you are in the area. The lunch set menu is a value for money and a better option on the pocket.

Very close to Gateway of India, Jia had been suggested by a friend for Chinese food. We hadn't made a reservation and being a weekend were asked to wait, fair enough. But they were kind enough to give us a table in five minutes. Nice cosy ambience. Subdued colours. We asked for prawn dimsums. Four pieces of translucent soft dimsums were polished off in no time. For mains we had a rice, noodles, a chicken dish and prawns with green onions and chili oil. All of the food was tasty, flavourful and on point.
Being from Delhi I found the prawn dish at Rs. 995/- a bit overpriced. In Delhi it would have been between six to seven hundred.
