My Favorite Chinese Restaurants In Pune

Who loves Chinese food? Well I definitely do. Its been a couple of years that I eat a Chinese meal at least once a week. In fact, in my previous workplace, I used to order Chinese food so often that my colleagues used to joke and call me a Chinese spy pretending to be an army kid as my dad was serving in the Indian army at that time! Indian Chinese is very popular in my country. It's a combination of Indian tastes and Chinese flavors so its it's way spicier that authentic Chinese and has a bunch of its own dishes like Manchurian and Triple Schezuan that are extremely popular and probably only available here! Authentic or Indianized, it's always going to be one of my favorite cuisines, so here a post about my favorite Chinese restaurants in Pune -

CHINESE ROOM
Chinese Room Pune
Chinese Room is one of Pune's oldest and best Chinese Restaurants. I've been going there with my parents for over a decade now and have never been disappointed. The restaurant has a cozy indoor seating and I've tried a large variety of dishes here, all of which were really delicious. When it comes to the cuisine, you can't go wrong with anything you order. Chinese Room is one of the few places in Pune that serves Pork and Duck and they do it with perfection. 


SUONMOI
Tucked in a quiet residential neighborhood, Suonmoi is great for a quick meal, no frills meal. They serve generous portions of fairly Indianized Chinese and Thai food and offer a variety of starters, main courses and specialties. They can definitely improvise on the ambience but the food makes up for it. The place is clean and tidy and very reasonable. The staff  is well mannered and service is very quick. I go here every couple of months so would definitely recommend this place.


ROYAL CHINA
Royal China offers authentic Cantonese cuisine with a royal ambience, mouth-watering menu and an extensive wine list. They offer a fine array of dim sums, a variety of appetizers, main course and desserts. Local favorites include dishes like crispy aromatic duck served with paper-thin pancakes and Cantonese specials like flaming prawns. The vegetable lettuce wrap, barbecue pork puff, dim sums, mud cake with ice-cream and toffee banana are a few signature dishes and trying them out is a must. The kitchens of Royal China, across the country, are handled by chefs from countries like Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore, along with Indian chefs who have all been trained by Royal China in Mumbai. 

WHISPERING BAMBOO
Whispering Bamboo in the Taj Vivanta is a nice fine dine Chinese restaurant that offers an extensive menu of Chinese delicacies and numerous options for drinks.  The place lives up to its name as it is done up with bamboos surrounding the walls and the decor is soothing to the eyes. The restaurant is never over crowded and is perfect for a relaxed evening with friends and family. What makes the experience even better is the beautiful presentation of the food and the cutlery used. The staff is warm and courteous and their service is great. 

Do you like Chinese food? If not, what's your favorite cuisine?

  34. Wow, that was great to know, cause I didn't know that Chinese restaurants were popular in India! And as I said, I liked to know it! I like some dishes of Chinese food, cause I don't eat meat - so I am very restricted when I go to any restaurant, not only Chinese ones.

  35. This looks like a lovely restaurant! I love chinese food and am so proud of myself for just making terriaki sesame chicken (not really chinese I guess but the closest I've come in cooking besides spicy cold noodles - which I love!) Hope all is well!

  42. The place looks great! Though it seems like all Chinese restaurants have the same decor, probably because they all follow Feng Shui :)
