Enjoy your winter at Mainland China, Banani. Get rid of the desi Chinese and have some authentic Chinese cuisine.

They served us -

Oriental Crispy Lamb

Drums of Heaven Chili Plum Sauce

General Tso's Favourite Chicken

Vegetable Thai Green Curry.

ORIENTAL CRISPY LAMB: Loved the way they cooked it. At first it didn’t taste like lamb and I thought it was beef. The lamb was crispy, had the bbq flavour. The dish a little bit sweet.

Price: 550BDT

Rating: 8.5/10

DRUMS OF HEAVEN CHILI PLUM SAUCE: 8 pieces of juicy chicken drumsticks made with plum sauce in Hong Kong style. Tasted better than ordinary drumsticks. 

Price: 475BDT

Rating: 8/10

GENERAL TAO'S FAVOURITE CHICKEN: It was Chinese legend General Tso's favourite. They made it exactly the same way he had it thousands of years ago. Thickening that sauce with a little cornstarch made it better. Compared to General Tso's, orange chicken usually has a lighter-colored sweet, sour, savory glaze. It is spicy-hot because dried red chilies are used heavily in this dish.
