Three Quarter Chinese

by

Three Quarter Chinese is an old and reputed restaurant located bang in the middle of the Central Business District and shopping hub in Bangalore – in Church Street. It’s also literally a hop, skip, and jump away from the M.G.Road Metro station. Perfect in terms of location. It also used to be one of our haunts for K and I back in the good old days when we worked together in the same office and would often stop by for after work dinner.

Once our offices moved out of the city though, we stopped the regular lunches and dinners there too.

So, it was lovely to visit it one weekend with Snubnose when we were invited to sample their lunch buffet options. We clubbed the lunch with a little shopping at Blossoms just down the road, and then leisurely walked into the restaurant. Seriously, the Metro is such a boon when visiting MG Road and surrounding areas – no stressful hunting for parking spots, and most shops and restaurants just a short stroll away.

Anyway back to the topic ie. lunch at Three Quarter Chinese.

As the name suggests, their food is mostly Chinese, but with a smattering of North Indian also thrown in.

Their food is not too experimental, and because they combine Chinese with North Indian food in their buffets, this place is ideal for large gatherings of people with differing taste buds.

Here are a few photos of the things we sampled.

Vegetarian me opted for salads and chaat.

While she enjoyed it overall, it was a tad bit on the spicy side.

For the main courses, we stuck to the Chinese food for the most part.

All the food is predictably good, but I always prefer Chinese over North Indian, as I like to leave a meal feeling light on my feet.

However, if you like North Indian, this buffet will still work pretty decently for you.

After a couple of rounds of the main course buffet, we headed out to the dessert options.

There was a chocolate fountain and lots of sweet eats that we could dip into the fountain and enjoy. Snubnose lapped up all the desserts that she happily dipped in chocolate.

I stuck to a pastry or two and a simple ice cream, and we happily waltzed off back home.

  • Looks tasty… that indo-chinese is great, but tough to find in the states!

      @adam_s_morris:disqus Yes. I once dined at a P.F Chang when I visited the US a couple of years back. I was surprised at how different the Chinese food tasted there.
