This week, The 3 Hungry Men had an uncontrollable urge for some authentic Chinese, tired of the local Chinese places in Mangalore, so they rode to Manipal again! After asking around we located the FIRST place to serve authentic Chinese in Manipal. Yes, most of you 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 onÖ

For a quick starter we ordered the quintessential MOMOís. A famous Tibetian and Chinese dish a.k.a dumplings! 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 that is the Chicken Hot Pan which is served sizzling hot just like how a sizzler is served and tasted heavenly, it was perfectly spiced too. And the Chicken Saiwoo 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 which is very similar to the popular Oreo 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 Chicken Yaming 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 wholly chicken perfectly made in an awesome soya sauce based gravy!

And the desert which clean bowled our stomachs was the Fried Ice cream which is a desert loverís dream come true!

As an addition, China valley also serves a few varieties of Indian food on every Tuesdays in order not to disappoint the Indian food lovers.

In the evenings one has the option to sit out in their garden too and at the same time enjoy different flavoured Sheeshas (Hookah) while waiting for their food, we recommend the Milk based and Rum based Sheesha that will relax you for sure after a day of hard work!

But we tell you from the heart next time youíre in Manipal and want Chinese head straight to China Valley, Authenticity GUARANTEED! China Valley is located at the end of the Manipal End point road. It is right next to the road and is easily spotted with its Chinese tress and garden outside the hotel. The name 'China Valley' however is derived by the location of the hotel. It is located on a hill (near Manipal End point) and overlooks a beautiful valley of green and river.

So The 3 Hungry Men rate China Valley as Follows.
 
Ambience 7/10
Food: 8/10
Hygeiene: 8.5/10
Service 9/10
Location: 8.5/ 10
Overall 7.5/10

Beautiful and attractive pictures of the colourful Chinese dishes. I ate Chinese food in Delhi which was located to the foreign embassy area, the food didn't make me sick.

But as DRONA has indicated, whenever I ate Chinese food in the U.S., I got sleepy fast and felt very lethargic immediately; so I try my best to avoid that great fun of eating.
Drona, India :
If there is one food which I would like to avoid, that is the Chinese food.I have tried it in several restaurants in Bangalore especially.It does not hold my interest. Any day I would eat Indian snacks and dinner.Chicken/Gobi Manchurian is one exception.Any way I am sure there are plenty of Chinese food fans who would vouch for it.Enjoy folks.
