China Bistro: A Culinary Journey Through Oriental Delights at Select Citywalk Mall, Delhi

In this blog post, I explore China Bistro, a new quick service restaurant in Select Citywalk Mall Delhi that has quickly earned the reputation as 'the destination' for exceptional Chinese cuisine, top-notch service, and a charming ambiance.

Emperor Qin Shi Huang, the visionary leader of ancient China, yearned to leave an indelible mark on history by establishing the most formidable warrior dynasty ever witnessed in the Middle Kingdom. To safeguard his legacy in the afterlife, he entrusted his grave to a loyal army of Terracotta warriors, who had faithfully protected him in life. Remarkably, these Terracotta soldiers exhibited a distinct personality, even in their culinary preferences. Their sustenance bore the hallmark of passion, earthy flavors, and a delightful medley of locally sourced, fresh ingredients from their homeland. Just as these valiant warriors shielded their king, they guarded their cherished recipes with equal devotion.

The History

The story of China Bistro began as a single establishment in 2012 in Thane, Mumbai. Within a mere month of its inauguration, the restaurant quickly earned the reputation as 'the destination' for exceptional Chinese cuisine, top-notch service, and a charming ambiance. Consequently, the brand expanded, with the second restaurant opening its doors in Worli in 2013, followed by Dadar and Chembur – Mumbai and Hyderabad restaurants in 2014, 2015, and 2016, respectively.

China Bistro takes pride in offering a refined culinary experience that won't break the bank, set in a picturesque setting designed to transport you to an Oriental bistro. In addition to their extensive Chinese menu, the expert Master Chefs have also crafted culinary delights from the kitchens of Korea, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, and Hong Kong. The expansive bar menu is thoughtfully curated to tantalize your taste buds with an enticing selection of classic mocktails.
