“Good food and ambience at a good price”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The ambience and the food are excellent. However the ala carte menu is quite pricey. The buffets offered has a wide range and the choice of desserts are also good. However sometimes the buffet items are very spicy and use typical Indian elements (like dried chilli or mustard) to suit the Indian palate.

“There is nothing Chinese about this place”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you're a discerning foodie, and would like real Chinese food, steer clear of this place.This is what the upper-middle-class Indian thinks is Chinese food, which is not even remotely Chinese. And what kind of restaurant, which claims to serve "real Chinese" doesn't have pork on the menu? Overpriced, bad food. Completely avoidable.

“Not authentic Chinese”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Mainland China claims to be authentic chinese, the best chinese food in Kolkata. After living in China for 6 years i can tell you its not. Its just another version of Indian Chinese and too expensive for what you get (thats if the staff can get your order right!). Save your money and gp elsewhere.

“Awesome !!!!!!!!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Everything was at its best. Awesome food, awesome ambience as well as awesome hospitality. Food was good although a bit expensive. But after all we got the essence of China in Kolkata.
