    I am starting quite to like Chinese food, but not the Indian style one. I want to have some authentic style Chinese food which I think is quite hard to find in India.

    I know there are some restaurants like Yo China, and I think it is China Mainland, but I don't know what they are like, whether they serve authentic Chinese food or food with the Indian tarka in it?

    I am sure there are people out there who would know about the authentic places for Chinese food, so I want to know which is the best Chinese restaurant in Delhi, where I can enjoy a good meal, and I know I am having Chinese and not Indian.

    Hello there!

    Here are some Chinese restaurants in Delhi serving authentic Chinese dishes:

    1. House of Ming (The Taj Mahal Hotel) - They only have Chinese dishes. They are well-known for their authentic Chinese food and ambience. The cooking style of the chefs here are both Canton and Schezuan. The Schezuan style caters to the people who do love spicy food and the Canton style is more for the people who loves their food to be lightly flavoured. As for the ambience, the restaurant plays oriental music and the interiors also resemble the Chinese design.
    • Address: The Taj Mahal Hotel, 1, Mansingh Road, New Delhi.
    • Must-Try Dishes: Crispy spinach, dimsums, lotus stem tossed with honey and dry red chili, wok fried rice with vegetables and chicken kung pao.

    2. China Garden - This restaurant also only has Chinese cuisine. The ambience of the restaurant is very simple but elegant. It was Nelson Wang who founded this Chinese restaurant. Their flagship branch is in Mumbai and they also launched this branch in Delhi. The staff here are also very courteous and polite, which is not always seen in many restaurants.

    3. Fa Yian - This restaurant serves authentic Chinese cuisine as well. It's a small restaurant as compared to the first ones I've mentioned. Ambience-wise, it doesn't deliver much. The place is small and can only accommodate up to 20 persons at one time.
