“Nice experience”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We went to RK salai branch on 30th July 2013 for lunch as we were staying at Hotel New Woodlands and our son wanted to try the chinese cuisine.The staff were friendly and cordial.When we got down from the auto, the staff greeted us and accompanied us to the third floor where the restaurant is situated.Why do they accompany? B'Coz 4 restaurants are situated in the same premise.The hotel doesnot want to loose any customer...!!!! that's why they accompany...wanna! The ambience with background music is excellent.We ordered for sweet corn chicken soup,Tepan chicken Platter,Chicken Fried Chicken,Lobster Greens-Szechwan Saji,as non veg dishes and Spicy Lemon Vegetable Clear Soup, Golden Corn& Ground nut salad, Siv Cheiv Vegetables, Szechwan Chilli Garlic Fried, Tang un Crispy Vegetables as veg dishes. out of these lobster awesome. corn and nuts salad was exceptional.Starters were so good that we couldnot relish the main course.And finally ice kachang too too...good. All this costed 3445 indian rupees.This is without tax & with tax came to 4053.SERVICE WAS REMARKABLE.The way they guided us to relish our food was exceptional.Mr. Padmanaban senior manager was friendly and treaty!Nice treat for our taste buds.

“Decent place... Reasonably priced”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The good thing about China Town is its location and ambience. On the main road, adjacent to the famous Music Academy, it was easy to reach and has a soothing ambience. The staff was very courteous, right from escorting us from the ground floor to the third floor (where the restaurant is housed) to attending us during our dinner, they knew their job well and I was glad to find no trace of over-zealous servers. Service was quick and it was not long before the aroma of our food filled our hungry stomachs! Food was decent, although could have been much better. We ordered a Hakka noodles (veg) and greens in spicy soya sauce. The greens were good although the strong flavour of soya sauce drowned the juice from the vegetables. Nevertheless, the taste passed. As with many Chinese restaurants, the options for Non-Vegetarians are plenty and the Vegetetarians, I feel, may be left wanting. Since it was our Veg day, we felt a tad tight w.r.t options.

A Meal for 2 (Without alcohol) - INR 1000 (Veg), INR 1500 (Non-Veg).

“Value for money!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

china town has a lunch buffet every weekday. Its good. Different variety of non-veg and veg dishes. The staff and cordial and friendly. they even served my son strawberry ice-cream which was not on their buffet desert menu. Even their ala carte has a good mix of foods. Overall a good place to have a family meal.

“Good location and a good food”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We visited the Restaurant based out of RK Salai. I have come in to this place innumberable time, however have landed up every time at Zaras. Thus, this time, I made a conscious effort to taste something different,

I liked the TDH plan. This is basically a Combo available both in Veg as well Non Veg, priced at Rs 395 and Rs 425 respectively. In the non Veg Started there was a Pepper fish which was good. For Vegeterian there was Dimshum which was quite different and also had a Veg Noodles which was good. The quantity of food was wholesome. The decor was Oriental and there was Mandarin music in the background, whcih does not disrupt your conversation.

You also get Valet parking. The food was just good.
