This is a haven for Chinese food lovers and the whole idea of some good Chinese food starts and ends here. With the ambience that is perfect for all sorts of guests, a good date, a great corporate lunch or a nice family Sunday Brunch: you are all sorted! There is a lot of black and reds that you can see around yourself, it is all the part of the stellar ambience it can be. The service is usually super quick. The food menu and the drinks menu are very well thought about, it all comes together when you order one dish from each category. The dimsums include a varied range of classics with some new and modern-age flavours too. for instance, we have always loved the ‘Basil and Vegetable Dumplings’ but soon the ‘Edamame and Truffle Oil Dumplings’ have taken over the regulars. They are all very well made and the better part is that the regular and large portion sizes is a good indication that you can save a lot of food instead of wasting it, they are also priced marginally different. We highly recommend the 'Eight Treasure Soup' that is totally worthy and it comes with an assortment of eight vegetables with a ginger-garlic broth. The appetizers include the regular 'Chicken and Red meat' or 'Tofu tossed in Hot Garlic Sauce' or 'Black Bean Sauce' and maybe even just the classic 'Stir Fry'. You can see a similar pattern is followed in the mains and large plates as well. We love the ‘Crispy Pan Fried Noodles with Sichuan Sauce’ and you can pair these with any of the curries you love. The portion sizes of the mains are quite massive so make sure you have enough room for sharing the food. The desserts are very simply made and it actually is a good idea to see a lot of inspiration from Coconut, Mango and Dates being used instead of the regular sugar-laden stuff.
Famous chain and restaurant but I think it’s not able to catch up with the modern restaurant culture. Slightly priced higher for its quality, ambience and service. Very traditional and classic old restaurant Great things to try in menu but I have had better Chinese in modern day restaurants
Located in Aundh at Ground Floor, Hotel Shree Nanda Excellency, ITI Road. Easily accessible via Google Maps, for first timers. They have valet parking, so you don't need to worry about your car. We had prior reservation on a weekday. Got the table immediately on our arrival. Ambiance is like typical Mainland China Restaurants and perfect for special occasions. All indoor sitting and quite spacious. Plenty of space between tables. On your arrival, the Chinese Tea and salad were given. Chinese tea is quite refreshing, do try. Tried their Chinese New Year Menu and had the following dishes: ☆ Tom Yum Soup (Veg): This is hot & sour soup with lots of authentic Chinese veggies. It's light and perfect way to start your dinner. The soup gives a soothing to your taste buds. ☆ Tom Yum Soup (Chicken): This is hot & sour chicken soup with chicken pieces and veggies just like above. ☆ Corn, Spinach, Water Chestnut Dumplings: A heavenly dumpling for vegetarians. One of the healthiest dumplings which tastes delicious. Its green in color due to spinach content. Its served in authentic Bamboo Basket. ☆Basil flavored Chicken Dumplings: One of the best Chicken Dumplings I have had in Pune, the outer crust was super soft and melts in your mouth. The filling is with perfectly steamed chicken with flavor of Basil. tastes best with Mustard Sauce and hint of Pepper Sauce. Its served in authentic Bamboo Basket. ☆Crispy Lotus Stem | Black Pepper Crumble, Curry Leaves: Its like honey chili potato, except for potato there is "Crispy lotus stem" and taking the dish to a new level. Recommended for vegetarians. ☆ Mongolian Skewered Chicken: The search for good skewers in Pune will come to an end here, the Mongolian Skewered Chicken served here are very delicious. First, the presentation will blow your mind. The chicken is soft and well cooked and tasted good with mustard sauce. ☆ Pomfret in a spicy Garlic Sauce: Unique way of having Pomfret here, refer the image for exact presentation. The fish was perfectly cooked and de-boned. Its very easy to have it. Highly recommended for fish lovers. ☆ Truffle Infused Black Rice with Edamame: A sticky & healthy rice variant and perfect for Main course meal. Recommended if you plan not to have noodles. ☆ Sticky Date Pudding with Toffee Sauce: This is again one of the outstanding dishes, the chef work on this has to be appreciated. Its freshly baked date pudding served HOT with toffee sauce over it along with Vanilla Ice cream. You will fall in love with the first bite. This dish is highly recommended. ☆ Mango Pudding: Perfect dessert to end your dinner. Recommended for Mango lovers. The Pudding is like thick custard and served with mango sauce. The service is top notch and makes you feel like dining in a 5 Star Hotel. The Cutlery Set are all thick white porcelain. Ideal for a sumptuous meal. Mr. Vinay was very helpful and helped us for the table as per our choice. The staff is very courteous and best I have seen in Pune so far. Recommended for special occasions. You will not be disappointed. #MainlandChina #ChineseNewYear #LunarNewYear #YearOfThePig
I have been to Mainland China Aundh Branch. I will rate 2/5Taste wise not Mainland China level . I always appreciate Mainland China's taste. But this time it was too much below tthe expectations. Not worth as compared to price.Maybe due to 50% off they are compromising the taste and quality.
Never had such amazing chinese food. Brilliant taste and amazing service. Must visit. Once u eat there , you won't eat Chinese anywhere else.
Mainland China has been my favourite place to visit whenever I crave for Chinese food. On this instance, it has certainly let me down. The restaurant was not too busy either. The staff and managers seem busy entertaining larger groups and not really interested in you occupying a single table. When it came to the bill, he asked me if I had Zomato gold. I was avoiding it till now but subscribed to the gold membership only to be later turned down by the manager saying it's only for 2 persons. They don't apologize for their own goof ups. Manager seemed to be least bothered.
The mandarin charm of ‘Mainland China’ has attracted the punters for years but what ensnared them was its delicious food served with a lot of love. The love affair with Chinese cuisine has been going on for decades and these passing years have only heightened the appeal of this wonderful cuisine. For residents of Aundh, Pune, Hotel Shree Nanda Excellency is their go to destination for scrumptious Chinese fare whenever the craving hits them. The hotel is home to the very popular Chinese restaurant ‘Mainland China’. The comfortable and elegant appeal of the restaurant earns the place a steady flow of regulars who pop in time over time to gorge onto the delicious spread of Chinese dishes. Authentically decorated the restaurant has a clear image of being a Chinese restaurant. Statues of terracotta warriors greet you as you enter the establishment which is rather charming. Generously spacious and cheerfully lit the room is attractive and uplifting.
Staff of Mainland China is a well-trained lot who makes it their mission to give you a memorable evening. Their menu may not be unnecessarily long but has all the key dishes to impress you. Seafood gets a lot of attention here so for those who like their fish will find the menu a true delight. Begin the mandarin journey with a selection of delicious appetizers such as, sweet & spicy jumbo prawns, aromatic chicken with garlic, Sichuan chilli babycorn, all-time favourite crackling spinach, konjee crispy lamb, peppery lemon soup, shanghai spring rolls, prawn siu mai, eight treasure soup, prawns salt & pepper, diced chicken with assorted pepper & ginger, pan fried chilli fish, drums of heaven, hot & sour soup, fried chicken wontons, chicken Taipei, stir fried mushrooms ginger chilli and yue yang spicy barbequed fish.
If the appetizers have impressed you then wait no more and dig into the mains with a relish. Mainland China does a fab chilli basil fish, prawns hubei style, general Tao’s favourite chicken, roast lamb in a sauce of your choice, four treasure vegetables in hunan sauce, okra and potato in black bean sauce, freshwater whole bekti steamed or braised, burnt garlic fish with seasonal greens and slow fried jumbo prawns. Pair the mains with wok tossed hakka noodles or egg fried rice. As the sweet finish ask for steamed coconut dumplings with honey butter sauce. Only medium pricey Mainland China is worth visiting regularly with family and friends.
