Chopsticks Out: Here Are The Best Chinese Restaurants In Pune
Who would not love if you find a traditional Chinese place, run by a Chinese family? Kimling in Aundh serves the Chinese cuisine with a wide variety of dishes. Though the menu has majorly non-veg, the veg dishes are also equally delicious. They have mocktails as well and have three outlets around Pune. If you want to indulge in comfort food, there's no beating their clear soup. A meal for two costs INR 1000.
Asia Kitchen By Mainland China
Located on Dhole Patil Road, Asia Kitchen is a new venture by Mainland China. Neatly laid out tables coupled with vibrant lighting make for an elegant and cosy ambience. To add a sense of authenticity, the walls are full of Chinese inscriptions. But what sets it apart from other Mainland China outlets is the inclusion of a see-through kitchen. Blame the aromas if you're already tempted before your meal. Try out their 6-course elaborate meal that costs only INR 666.
Kok Pa on FC Road is a perfect place to visit for comfort food. I love that they have a variety of dishes to choose from. Apart from food, you'll love beverages too. They serve some amazing cocktails that one must try. The Tom Yum Cocktail is one of their best. Under INR 500, you and your plus one can eat to your heart's content. Try their Singaporean noodles if you love spicy flavours.
Soy Affair is a quaint place, located in the lane next to Medipoint, in Aundh. Done up simply, with white walls and wooden tables both with indoor and outdoor seating arrangements, the place really has a very welcoming vibe to it. Coming to the food, they sure have quite a lot to offer - from the appetisers to soups and mains. We absolutely love the butter garlic noodles that are wholesome and too delicious. A meal for two costs INR 400.
There is an outlet of Noodle Canteen in Aundh and foodies staying in the neighbourhood cannot keep their calm. The number one reason is that they won't have to travel to Kalyani Nagar to enjoy yummy Asian food and secondly, the place is another addition to Aundh-Baner link road's cafe lane. Food hopping just got more fun, didn't it? Try the charcoal dim sums, dumplings and yummy crackled spinach with pan-tossed noodles. An elaborate meal for two comes up to INR 700.
The Vivanta by Taj – Blue Diamond Hotel is a legend in its own right. Whispering Bamboo is popular for their Chinese and Thai fine-dining. For a more relaxed evening of post-work drinks and substantial Chinese snacks, check out the place; and for a sweet indulgence, head to their coffee place. Try out the artisanal dumplings, noodles, stir-fried veggies in gravy with rice. A super-romantic place, you can take your S.O. there.
The Asian Box
The Asian Box is a perfect place to visit for comfort food. I love that they have a variety of dishes to choose from. Apart from food, you'll love the beverages too.

You will love the Chinese sauces that they make in-house. You and your gang can spend approximately INR 1000 and enjoy an elaborate meal.
Formerly known as 'Uncle's Kitchen', the much-loved Chinese restaurant now goes by Uncle's Chinese. Located in Koregaon Park, the restaurant has impeccable service and great food.

An age-old eatery, Suonmoi in Sangamvadi is another Pune favourite when it comes to Chinese restaurants.

A meal for two here is INR 1,000 and you can eat your fill. The space is neat and still running strong, serving impeccable food.
