Background: We were 3 families (of 10 members) wanted to try some Chinese cousins in Ooty. Pros: authentic taste, multiple choice, reasonably priced Cons: little old fashioned a place, not so great ambience, expect service delays as it mostly goes over-crowded. But once you get to taste the food you will never repent. Must try: pork with broccoli, Chilli Pork,... More

The only advantage is it is in the heart of Ooty, the service is pathetic, the staff are unresponsive. They prefer to just stand than even giving the menu and when requested they just act busy. I'm originally from Ooty, this place wasn't like this, Don't recommend unless you don't mind the service

I give it a 5 for the food. Authentic Chinese food served since many yearş. The place will not appeal you so much but the mouth watering dishes will light up your senses.

Visited this place for dinner, reading the reviews on TA. Certainly wasn't a disappointment! It is very centrally located, so regardless where you are staying in Ooty, shouldn't be any problem finding it Initially, was a little apprehensive about going here based on ambience reviews, bit guess the owners have done it up. It's a very clean and cozy joint... More

The Pork served here is to die for !! Be it the sweet and sour pork, or chilli pork, it just melts in your mouth.. We tasted Beef and Brocholi also along with vegetable fried rice and it was awesome.. Don't miss out on the pork and beef there !!

Visited with family. This has been a regular place on my visit to ooty. The dishes are very different from the regular Chinese food we taste. The chilly chicken is a must try. Very different and good taste. Prefer the noodles to the rice. Rice may be little sticky. Must try atleast once

The food was pretty fine for an Indian-Chinese restaurant (indianised chinese as we know it). However the food was very average for the pricing and service available.. the place is quire hyped as its been around for a long time. But it's definitely one of the good and few dining options in Ooty
