China Gate

Rest : China Gate
Meal : Dinner
Date : 3/6/2006
Location : Bandra, Turner Road, down the road from Zenzi
Company : Pie, Anie

Experience - A hankering for Chinese, no desire to go to on to Link Road and we decided on this. It was a bit early when we got in around 7. Oddly about 5 tables of people there and we were the only Indians, it feltl like we were in Hong Kong or something.

The service was ok, the waiters brought out the appetizers before the soup was done. A huge Faux Pas in my opinion, despite being asked to hold it they continued to anyway. Then the server dropped some food in my drink and on asking to replace it , they did, but charged me for it. i dont like creating scenes so i didnt bring it up, but i was unhappy bout that treatment.

Drink :Diet Pepsi

Food :Ending up busy making phone calls i only called for the soup (wanton for me, telenpien or something like tht for them) i found out they ordered the entire meal without me. Usually a bad idea when i am concerned.

It was an all appetizer meal consisting of Schezuan Potato, Onion Pancakes, Dim Sum, Spring Rolls. The soup was First Grade (mine was anyway, the other one was terrible) the Onion pancakes were slightly oily, but allright. the schezuan potato is a disgusting dish i loathe, the Dim Sum again was top notch, very enjoyable, the Spring Rolls, were allright, not too bad, but not great either.

The overall meal was pleasant and above average. The restaurant is also quite huge and we had the chinese contingent peering over their table, walking over to ours and pointing out the dishes they wanted. Quite Funny!

Rating : Food 8/10, Service 6/10

Damage : 900 ($18)
