“Good "Indian" Style Chinese Food”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

First of all, the food at Mainland China tastes nothing like the Chinese food I am used to. It is very Indian in style, preparation and taste. That being said, the food is very good. The restaurant offers a variety of veg and non-veg dishes, and seems to specialise in banquets for large groups. The dim sum dumplings were reasonably authentic, the rest I would not have picked as Chinese had I not been in a restaurant called Mainland China. Appetizers were mainly fried - the best being the deep fried corn. We had so many appetizers served that I didn't get to the mains, but the rest of my group found them "Unusual but tasty".

Mainland China is worth a visit if only to see how Indians interpret Chinese food. I guess all countries tend to localise other cuisines, but in India the localization is indeed great!

“Peking duck”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We tried the Peking duck at Mainland China in the Leela. For two people, half peking duck is more than adequate, and they bring the duck and the pancakes on a serving table right next to your table and prepare it for you. It was delicious. After that we have a choice of rice or noodles with the meat of the duck, and we chose noodles. All to be washed down with Chinese tea, which is not my cup of tea.

“Chinese (Indi Chinese ) Food at its best”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The above Restaurant which serves only Chinese cuisine is located adjacent to the Shopper's Center in Mumbai . Myself and my wife were visiting Mumbai on holiday and after some tiring trips for shopping wanted a good meal so opted for a buffet at the Mainland Chinese Rest.
The ambience was great, The food was excellent in quality , variety and quantity.
The service could be a little better. The price was amazingly good .

The signage to guide customers to the right entrance needs to be more prominently positioned for first time visitors.

Overall splendidly worth it
