Hatari has great Chinese section specially the Green Chilly Chicken and Mixed Hakka chowmein are worth the long wait you will have to go through for a table. Although the decor is just functional and the service hovers between attentive and indifferent, still if you've good company and are interested in fair quality food without spending too much, Hatari should be your choice!

“Budget resturant with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This restaurant fits in a tight budget, the amount of food served is good. This place is good for family meets. The food is good and service is prompt. This place is well known for its Chinese dishes but now a days they serve a lot more than that. Expect a rush on holidays and festivals.

“Indianised Chinese.......old's gold?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Well I have grown up hearing tales of parents and uncles visiting the place for a dinner date. I have been to the place quite a few times myself. Here is the review

The plus
1.Large portions of food. One serving suffices for two
2.Fairly friendly staff who can recommend you a thing or two
3.Decent family atmosphere
4.They stock some real good soups and starters
5.They offer home delivery

The minus
1.There's no waiting area outside(this is a shame as the restaurant is quite full on weekends)
2.The main courses lack variety
3.The dessert menu is very limited
4.It is somewhere in between a casual hang out place and fine dining.

the best part about this restaurant that it does'nt maintain a high coller image, thus any middle class can easily dare to get inside..but drawback is there is no convenient space outside to wait for table

“A chinese restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

What you get here is Indianised Chinese food. The place is not too attractive but prices are medium and the portion sizes large. That is what makes it appetising for a large number of city folks. Fairly okay food in a budget
