We love Chinese food. Although it is Indian Chinese food and not the authentic one, we love to dig into that hot, juicy and spicy chilli chicken. Few of the Chinese dishes will be there on the menu of every other Chinese restaurant, like stir fried rice or noodles with veggies or chicken, sweet and sour prawns and so on. In Bangalore, every lane has its own Chinese food joint, but if you want to taste good Chinese dishes, different from the street joints, here is a list of Chinese restaurants in the city that offer great food.
