Is Mainland China (buffet) worth the price?

Location : South City, Kolkata, India.
Food : Lunch Buffet.
Cost : 550 + 12.25% VAT

Dear readers,

What I felt was that the food was way average than many cheap (and cult) places I had the privilege of eating. I must point out that what we had was not chinese. Psedo-chinese or maybe Sino-Indian will be a more apt description. There were four things that I really liked - the dimsums, the chicken wing starter, the fish salad and the pastry. On the other hand, I hated the chicken preparation that was provided as a part of the main course. The ice cream had icicles in them. Any Amul ice cream will pawn that ice candy.

However, I am not aware of the quality of their à la carte but hands down the table d'hôte was totally forgettable. May I suggest a Nepali-Tibetan lady who sells momos and thukpa in Prince Anwar Shah road - about 500m from the aforementioned place.

If you have been to Mainland China and had à la carte, please do comment on the quality of the food.

  1. Recently had lunch at Tao by Zen, Connaught Place, New Delhi

    Starters: Steamed Shrimp Dumplings, Fried Wantons Tossed in Garlic Sauce

    Shrimp Teriyaki with Sticky Rice, Japanese Chicken Fried Rice

    Enough for 2 people. Approximate gross expenditure: Rs 1500.

    Food and service much better than the Mainland China Buffet we had.
