INSIDER TIPS

  • The restaurant exudes a discreet formality; you can loosen up a bit at tables facing the Duck Oven and Dim sum Kitchen
  • China XO’s Peking Duck is pulled out of a wood-fired duck oven (the only such in Chennai) and served with great finesse by Chef Mann Chhetri, who sharpened his skills at the acclaimed China Kitchen in Hyatt Regency, Delhi
  • The Sunday Dim sum brunch is unparalleled in Chennai and may be the best Dim sum deal in South India

Amit Speaks

4.5 /5

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.
