China Town calling @ China town

 If there’s one thing we Indians love undeniably, its Chinese food. Whether it originates from a street stall or a snazzy restaurant, there’s something about the oriental cuisine that beckons to us. China Town is celebrating 30 years in Chennai and in that spirit has introduced a whole new menu complete with complementary desserts that promise to give you reason to smile. Some of the dishes you can sample are the spinach and spicy chicken Sichuan dim sum (Rs 225), the Hunan fish (Rs 395) and the Spicy drunken chicken (Rs 345). The desserts are different every day so you might be served honey crispy noodles (Rs 145) one day and date pancake with honey (Rs 145) on another. Take your chances and we think you’ll be going back for more real soon.
