“The oasis in the city”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Ah Chinioserie! What food and service ..... Great! As you enter you will be greeted by the usual Taj hospitality .... The menu is wide with a whole lot of selection. So is the wine list. My personal favourites are scallops and peking duck. The cheese cake is also a delicacy. But it is heavily booked in the evenings .... I had to try for three days before getting a reservation ....

“Best Indian cuisine Restaurant in Kolkata”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

One of the finest Indian cuisine on offer at Sonargaon. Sublime experience.

Though the service seemed to be a bit off-colour on the given day.

“Amazingly Authentic for Chinese Taste Buds”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

If it is Taj it has to be great. Surely it was. I was apprehensive when my wife and her friend decided to dine Chinese at Chinioiserie because no matter how grand Taj is it always was not so popular about the food thing, be it any sort of party, wedding or fine dining. Well, this came out to be false and sure it won our hearts. Of course the rates (For four of us the bill came to around 4200 which included 2 soft drinks too) were that of the standards of Taj but it was sure what we were craving for. Seeing the other places to dine in the city the rates were simply reasonable.

Capped by excellent service and cleanliness and superb ambience it served us the freshest things we would have ever imagined. Made me remember the movie Ratatouille where at the end the critic is reminded of his home back when he was just a kid smelling farm-fresh. Same here also we experienced the same thing.

For starters we ordered Onion Pancake and American Corn. Onion Pancake was a thing which we had never experienced before. Simply tasted fresh and amazing. Would suggest a must try specially for this one. For the main course we took Burnt Garlic n Spring Onion Fried Rice, 3 flavoured noodles and Devil's Choice. We all liked the Rice and Devil's Choice the most. My personal favourite here was the rice. Deliciously made it really was heart-filling.

We really savoured our decision and enjoyed the evening. Simply wowed by the service too. Must and highly recommended for Chinese taste freaks.

“Best in Chinese Food”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

The ambiance,the food,the decor,the courtesy all point to one direction and that is Superb.

Compared to the other restaurants of Taj Bengal, this is simply bliss. Souk was great but way too pricey and Sonargaon was simply horrible.

Chinese food quality is mouthwatering and authentic. My 6 year old nephew simply adores this place in the city.Quality of service and staff courtesy is exceptional. Even if you have to wait outside, they behave so nicely. Compared to this. the staff courtesy at Sonargaon is simply wretched and despicable.

Earlier they used to allow smoking at the center of the restaurant,but has stopped that since the bar on smoking in restaurants and public places.

Overall memorable experiences for me and my family every time we have food there.
