This week, The 3 Hungry Men had an uncontrollable urge for some authentic Chinese, tired of the local Chinese places at home they rode to Manipal again! After asking around we located the FIRST place to serve authentic Chinese in Manipal. Yes, most of u might have guessed it right! We are talking about CHINA VALLEY who were the first who dared to come into the Chinese scene about 5 years back.
We were welcomed by a very warm semi oriental ambience with a slight drizzle! This was the perfect atmosphere for Chinese we thought! So did the weather prove to be as good as the food? Read on!
For a quick starter we ordered the quintessential MOMO’s a famous Tibetan and Chinese dish a.k.a dumpling! To our surprise they came in just 10 mins. And boy they gave us the kick we needed to start our stomachs!
Next up were the 2 most famous starters of China valley i.e Chicken Hot Pan which is served sizzling hot and tasted heavenly, it was perfectly spiced too and the Chicken Saiwoo which is a perfect combo of hot and sweet (FYI these are the custom creations of China Valley!)
The starters were washed down by a unique drink know as the Dark Fantasy shake we strongly recommend you to try this too!
Time for main course! We were already pretty full by the enormous quantity of the starters!
We ordered the Shangai Rice, The Chiken Ya ming Noodles and the Wolly Chicken gravy! This was the perfect main course we were looking for the rice well spiced, the noodles well cooked and the wolly chicken perfectly made in awesome soy sauce based gravy!
And the desert which clean bowled our stomachs was the Fried Ice cream which is a desert lover’s dream come true!
China valley also serves a few varieties of Indian food and pastas as it attracts different kinds of crowds ranging from students to families!
In the evenings one has the option to sit out in their garden too and at the same time enjoy different flavored Sheeshas while waiting for their food, we reccomed the Milk based and Rum based Sheesha that will relax you after a day of hard work!
But we tell you from the heart next time your’e in Manipal and want Chinese head straight to China Valley, Authenticity GARUNTEED!
