Lotus Roots and Dim Sums at Shanghai Club Chennai Restaurant


Visitors: 300

What you see - Located on the ground floor of the prestigious Sheraton Chola Hotel in central Nungambakkam, bang opposite Kalpa Stree and Kalpa Druma, this Chinese cuisine restaurant is around 1,500 square feet in size. Around 16 wooden tables, round and square, two seater as well as larger ones, are well arranged here. Maroon and pale yellow cushioned wooden chairs surround these tables, while striped couches run along the entire length of a wall.

From the lobby, a corridor of small shops and showcases displaying miniature Chinese figures and tea sets, flanked by silk banners with Chinese designs and the framed silk Cheongsams leads you to the place. Ivory walls, ceiling fans with four blades and carpets blend with the sparkling white Chinese silk tablecloths and matching napkins that would not look out of place in a commercial for detergents.

What you get - Courteous and prompt service by the maitre de and the hostess near the entrance see you to your table. The menu is a wonderful mix. Appetizers like Deep Fried Lotus Roots in chilli and honey sauce, Fried Beancurd (soya paneer or tofu) in Chashao Sauce cost Rs. 300 per dish. Spicy n Numb Prawns (Rs. 675), Crisp Fried Squid in onion and garlic sauce (Rs. 425), Chougqing Chilli Chicken (Rs. 425), Pork Spare Ribs with barbeque sauce and Pork Steak comprise some of their must-try spread.

Main course dishes include Egg and Shrimp Paste Fried Rice and Yangzhou Fried Rice in vegetarian and non-vegetarian variations. Dim Sum like the Prawn and Carrot Su-mai (Rs. 450) and Sliced Tenderloin with fried noodles also tempt you. They have Chengdou style fried rice with pickled vegetables as well. Dessert consists of Honey Noodles with Ice cream (Rs. 275), Sesame Banana with Ice cream, Date and Coconut Pancake with Ice cream and Milk Pancake with Ice cream.

Our verdict - If you don't mind spending on good Chinese food then this is the place to go to. The portions are large and service is prompt.
