When there's waiting in a restaurant on a Tuesday, you know that they're doing it right! There's a separate (truncated) lunch menu with only soups and dumplings and noodles, or fixed menus with varying degrees of sophistication, priced differently. China Kitchen is one of the few Chinese restaurants in Delhi to offer cold starters. Fungi Salad is a crisp, refreshing salad with three kinds of mushroom including white fungus, scented with a drop of sesame oil and fragrant Chinese vinegar. Stir-Fried Tenderloin with Green Chilli and Asparagus is a masterpiece of perfection with three flavours and textures. If you are lucky, the restaurant will just have made Green Tea Tiramisu. The mascarpone will have partially set into clouds of soft foam. Dreamy.

When the bartender has taken your last order and the bouncer has politely ushered you out of the club, China Kitchen's late-night spot still soldiers on. This 20-cover bar not only stocks some of the finest gins, malts, wines and sakes, but also offers potent cocktails, even though they admit after 2 am most patrons just ask for bottles. The last food order is taken at 1:45 am and sadly, doesn't include their Peking Duck, but the bar has a 24-hour license, which means it can stay open if you ask nicely and spend heavily. The Super Potato created warm vibe and intimate lighting makes it seem like your own private party where you can start off with a Sichuan Bloody Mary — an eye opener to wake you up from drunken slumber or the China Village Mai Tai, which will transport you to a beach retreat. The Vesper Martini is decent for a vodka martini, but it's the succulent Twice-Cooked Crispy Pork Ribs heaped with garlic and chili that we can't stop thinking about. The dim sums and Fried Lotus Root Fritters are good for savoury midnight cravings. End on a sweet note with the signature tea-based TCK — a blazing red wonder that needs to be appreciated slowly. Late night revelry, anyone?

I had to chance to meet the owner here, and he is so nice.
I really got the sense here that they are trying to pass on the best value and level of nutrition to the customer. And they really take care of you. Again, you feel like they really care - which is rare in the city.
The salads are great! Sandwiches are perfect for lunch, and they have these really cool smoothies and standard coffee drinks too. I would suggest you ask about the "green monster. "
I think the decor here is also really relaxing. Its not over designed, but it feels hip.
If you want to get great food, that is organic but doesn't break your wallet, this is a perfect place to stop by.
They also are really tech savvy. So you can order ahead using paypal or use your phone to pay with levelup.
