Past the regal upholstery of Jamavar and sea-flanked ‘chess’ garden, China XO is the unappointed crown jewel of Leela Palace. Befittingly, Chef Soon Wah Cheong serves Hargow (considered to be metier of a Dim sum chef) so delicate that it makes you want to kidnap him. Hakka braised Kurobuta Pork Belly is sublime but ill-paired with fried Man Tau buns. I was happier to chomp it between a pinenut-studded Fried Rice. My Filo-pastry Wrapped Sea bass was fried to textural contrast but a tad tedious after the second mouthful. I would gladly sidestep the mushy Avocado Pudding with Tapioca Pearls for bold Crisp Sesame Pancakes.
We visited in June 2019, only because of the stellar raves and reviews that they had! Needless to say it was a complete letdown. To begin with my fork was dirty, Food was mediocre, the Peking duck was bland at best. I have had Peking duck in Beijing before, it is skin of the duck is the main substance of the dish, carefully assembled with sliced vegetables and wrapped in a crepe with hoisin sauce, At China XO, we had to assemble the Peking duck in the wrap ourselves. When the restaurant charges that kind of price, the expectation is that everything would be par excellence and it was not. My experience was a definite disappointment.
it is my favorite restaurant in city of Chennai . especially Sunday branch always I enjoy it and feel satisfaction very well . there are many authentic tasty Chines dishes with Champagne in romantic surroundings. the staff serving chef s creation one by one in best temperature in polite manner .
Food was great, ambiance was ok but i love how they arrange their drinks in the bar i must say they have variety collection of drinks apart from that we tried many food but we all enjoyed it.....I must say from the beggining till the end we enjoyed everythng n deepak our server how can i forget him he made us so much comfort even thouth i felt that the dish was too spicy for me n am surprise he notice that i didn't really eat so he approched n asked if everythng goes well....I must say 5 star is a 5 star but pricing is a bit expensive but that doesn't count coz it worth it each and every penny from food to our server deepak.....Thank you for making our evening memorable
If you are looking for authentic Chinese food in chennaiI "CHINA XO" is the first place I would suggest. The ambiance is glorious I must say... The service was fast and I just admire the way who they're ... And DEEPAK is such a great talent server and calm.. Suggested all the good food from menu and we really enjoy our evening. We will definitely visit again this place and also recommend to our friends circle.. 😊
Wow!!! This is a brilliant Chinese restaurant with an amazing ambient. Great service from the moment we arrived till we left, a wonderful setting which has an authentic Chinese feel, a simple yet extensive menu and the food, I would go as far as saying this has to be one of the best Chinese meals I’ve had (been to China twice spending over 20 days with the most recent visit being just a month ago). Tried the Hunan spiced crispy prawns, Hong Kong style chicken, and a chicken soup for starters, followed by a Sichuan style crispy noodle, garlic stir fried brocoli, chicken and mushroom in oyster sauce, and an egg fried rice for mains. Every single dish unique, filled with flavour and well executed. Water and tea constantly topped up, friendly service throughout the meal. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a treat. I’d definitely come back.
