There isn't much to say about the ambience at taste of china, however one thing for certain is that the restaurant specializes in delicious chinese food with enough serving to feed an extra person. I would recommend the restaurant for the person thinking of chinese food.

The staff were not helpful at all. Forced us to sit outside when we clearly stated that we would like to sit inside. When expressing our concern, Daniel would just look at us and laugh.

This popular restaurant has perfected the Chinese food indians like eating. There's a healthy addition of chillies in all dishes.

The owner is a well mannered and polite Host who visits the tables frequently inquiring if the food and service is upto standard.... More

One of the best place for Chinese food cooked in Indian style. "Amazing experience". Being a vegetarian sometime we find difficulties but here we enjoyed foods thoroughly.
