When it comes to authentic and affordable Chinese food in India, one gradually comes to think of Mainland China. The brand has been around for decades and started its culinary journey in the early 90’s under the mantle of Anjan Chatterjee. The first flagship restaurant was opened in Sakinaka area in Mumbai and since then the brand has grown into various outlets all over the country. What started as a tiny eatery created by a bunch of foodies, grew into something spectacular. Although all outlets of Mainland China are just as good, Powai’s branch is more accessible and charming. Its corporate central location of City Park, Near D Mart in Powai, makes it highly favoured by the office goers. During lunch time the restaurant is always busy as many neighbouring regulars come here to enjoy a delicious oriental lunch with their team.
