I am not very fond of Chinese cuisine. Which is why, we hardly got to the Chinese restaurants as a family. But 3rd October was different – it was a hot and humid evening at the Durga Puja grounds and we craved for a good place with some good air-conditioning. We had dined at Mia Cucina only the previous night, didn’t want to go far as we had to get back to the Puja grounds for a rock concert, and hence, settled for Mainland China, promising myself that I’d eat only dumplings there.
How is the ambience at Mainland China, Powai? Stylish, plush and very well-laid out. However, Chinese Cuisine being popular with most Indians, the place is thronging with guests at all days of the week, and can get noisy with some many family groups and office groups coming here for meals.
How is the food at Mainland China, Powai? The staff member who waited upon our table helped us choose our meal. We ordered steam Chicken Siu Mai and Mongolean Lamb Skewers, over White Wine and Pinacolada. The Siu Mai were one of the best!! We devoured them in seconds. So were the Lamb skewers. They also made the Pinacolada just right!!
For the main course, we ordered Mixed Fried Rice, Singapore Chicken Rice Noodles and Roast Lamb in Pepper Sauce. I personally loved the Rice Noodles. Extremely light and tasty, I even liked eating them without the lamb. Jayanta loved the friend rice and lamb.
We didn’t order desserts, as our sweets intake had gone up by leaps and bounds over the Durga Puja week!!
Final Word on Mainland China, Powai – Go if you are a lover of Chinese food. You will love it there at Mainland China!!!
