Ten-Second Takeaway

We’ve never managed to get over Chinese food. For most of us, a hearty meal of spicy noodles and wholesome black bean sauce can cure bad moods and lift spirits. So to spread some joy, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite Chinese restaurants in Mumbai.

KUAI Kitchen, Colaba

The most affordable restaurant under the Royal China group makes no compromise on quality, and the flavours are nothing short of incredible. Think of this as a somewhat inexpensive fine dining outlet, which serves brilliant dim sums and succulent sushi. Adding to that is the street art decor and bright lighting, and you will definitely not be able to resist KUAI Kitchen.

Royal China, Fort

Royal China’s primary expertise is in making appetisers, and the dim sums rule our orders when we come here. You must try the edamame and truffle dumpling as well as the seafood dumpling {both of which we cannot get enough of}. Famous for its legendary chilli-infused oil, Royal China has a huge variety of dishes on their menu, and we suggest multiple visits to the restaurant to try them all.

Mainland China, Multiple Locations

Mainland China serves a good spread of authentic Chinese dishes. They are lauded for their quantity and quality of food, and their selection of dim sums is very impressive. The courteous staff is like a cherry on top, as they never fail to provide one a happy dining experience. May we suggest, do try their delicious noodles with a lamb gravy of your choice.

Hakkasan, Bandra West

This fine dining restaurant is frequented by the crème de la crème of Mumbai, but hold on, it’s not totally off limits for us all {and it also has an excellent, set lunch menu that will not cost you a bomb}. Go here for the crispy duck rolls, stir fry lamb, tenderloin and more. Also try their incredible desserts such as exotic ice creams, dark chocolate mousse with Mandarin sorbet and more!

Ling's Pavillion, Colaba

Now 75 years old, Ling’s Pavilion is one of the best Chinese restaurants in Mumbai, combining heritage with its long-established line of delicacies. Located in the posh Colaba alleyway at just a minute’s walk from Café Mondegar, Ling’s has preserved its interior décor and the amiable staff for as long as we can remember. The unique proposition here is the way you order the food – either stick to the menu, or ask the owner for his own recommendations to order off the menu. The honey glazed spare ribs simply melt in the mouth and are lipsmackingly good, and if you’d rather stick by seafood, the salt and pepper prawns are an equally appealing proposition. Don’t forget the dim sums, though. These are the staple order here, and you simply cannot go wrong with Ling’s dim sums. The fare is also priced well, so you can be assured of getting great food at good prices!
