Dim Sum Or Dosa: Eat All You Like At The Three Quarter Chinese Buffet

    Church Street, Bangalore


    Ideal for a quick office lunch or a boisterous family gathering, Three Quarter Chinese has  buffet with a quarter of it made up of Chinese food and the rest Indian. Hence the name!

    Who Is It For?

    It’s great for those working in the CBD as they only have a buffet format; so just go, eat, pay and leave. Whenever I’ve been here, I’ve noticed many a kitty party, and I can see why. Families who love to eat Indian-Chinese food and Indian food will like it too for the vast options.

    What Is The Ambience Like?

    It’s not really the ambience that draws you here as it’s a large hall that’s dotted with plenty of tables. The buffet is lined up against one wall, but they’re happy to join tables for as many as your party needs. Housed in the same building as Amoeba, there’s enough amusement for kids outside near the fountain. But that’s about it.

    Must Eat

    Momos. Or rather dim sum. Be it the vegetarian ones or the chicken, the momos here are spot on. The live counters are also great serving up everything from dosas and pakodas to authentic chaat {try the pani puri and aloo tikki}. The buffet is vast and has a rotational menu, but you can always count of some good dum biryani, fried fish {usually tangy Amritsari}, chilli chicken, the usual fried rice and noodles. While dessert isn’t too authentic, there’s lots on offer and you and happily OD on chocolate cake, mousse, cheese cakes and ice cream.

    How Was My Experience?

    The food isn’t quite gourmet, but it more than serves the purpose – it keeps everyone in the family happy. No one is fighting over whether Chinese or Indian should be eaten! The service is decent, though the wait staff need to be reminded to bring you refills of starters and drinks. It can also get rather loud when full, so maybe don’t go here on date night.


    Definitely make a reservation. There’s almost always a queue outside, and it’s no fun waiting for food.
