I normally write online reviews only if I am very impressed with the quality or if I am extremely disappointed. Today I am extremely disappointed with 'Kimling' and so this review.
After reading the other reviews and ratings I went to try this place for first time.
I was very disappointed with the quality of food. The chef doesn't even know how to balance salt and spice. The entrees have no flavour. Besides that, the quantity of food they served was not worth the price even if it had been tasty.
The menu published at 'burrp' is not the correct menu and dine-in menu cost is high. Each entree is not less than Rs.230
Although a bit gloomy in terms of lighting especially at night, this restaurant has always been one of my topmost choices for an enjoyable outing with friends and family. The magic of the place is how much ever you seem to stuff your face the bill always comes up much less than expected which in itself is a huge plus! In spite of being in Anna nagar parking has never been a problem here both for cars and bikes. The restaurant being underground seems secluded from the hustle around. Starters - Gai rod (thai chicken dish- crispy fried shredded chicken mixed in sauce) and kaichi (japanese chicken dish) are the specialties if u want something different. But if u want to go with the normal, Crispy lamb, dragon chicken are wonderful. Soup - manchow soup- wonderful though a bit garlicky. Supreme soup - Bit hot and more Indian taste. Wanton soup - very bland here ad the wantons are also not that good. so please stay away. Main course - If u love rice , Dragon fried rice and for the noodle lovers- American chopsuey or Kaithow would be my selection. I tried Roast beef in wine sauce once but being a teetotaller i totally hated the lingering smell of alcohol. So that's a personal no-no. The chicken main courses especially peking chicken is too good. I have no idea about the vegetarian dishes but my vegetarian friends loved all the dishes they ordered. Ending with their top class lime soda seals the deal. Do not make the mistake of ordering Green tea here. although the kettle seems genuine (pic added) u ll find a lipton green tea bag in hot water inside the kettle. I dono why they did not even bother to remove the teabag or at least the label. Stupid. On the whole, dining here has always been wonderful whether with family or friends. The hospitality is good. The place is not crowded which is surprising for such a wonderful restaurant in the heart of anna nagar. N personally I'd suggest this restaurant as one of the top choices in anna nagar for get-together's. Period.
I am a Patron of this restaurant. They serve the most sumptuous & delicious Chinese foods here. I regularly visit this restaurant twice a month with my family as well as with my friends. I am unable to resist the taste of food which is being served here. I recommend Chinese food lovers to try at least once in your life time this place. My Favorite food here is Roast Beef in Wine sauce along with Thai Fried rice. Whenever I go first i order this dish. Thumbs up to Kim Ling. I hope it will keep up its reputation forever.
