This restaurant not only offers Chinese Cuisine but has option ranging from Thai to Burmese Cuisines also. The food tastes good and the variety offered always makes it difficult to make a choice. I liked the Thai preparations most here.

It is a very nice place with dim light. You can go for a dinner date with your partner. I am vegeterian and this place have some good options. The manchow soup is one of the best. The manchurian and noodles also make a great meal.

This restaurant was initially in Madhapur and has now shifted to Indira Nagar, Gachibowli. Shangai Chef offers a variety of veg/non-veg chinese and thai dishes option which are decently price...the service is very slow but if you are ready to forego that it is a decent option

I have been to this place a couple of times to fulfill my cravings for decent chinese food (read: manchurians and chopsueys). Its on the main Madhapur road and easily located. The interiors are decently done. Nothing too great but right for its positioning. The ambiance is usually decent. People will usually come here to fill their stomachs rather than... More

If you are looking for authentic Chinese then try to avoid this place - its more of indian-ised Chinese dishes but good variety of dishes available. They use plenty of MSG so if your with your kid/baby ask them not to. Prices are a lil high..
