The stir-fry buffet is a fun way to enjoy different types of food. The food is fresh & arrives piping hot to your table. What makes this place extra special is the enthusiasm of the their staff who are more than happy to suggest combinations & options. This was my favourite dinner on this trip.

Did you know that you can also mix two or more sauces and create a wholly new taste of your own? Food, atmosphere, staff - everything is just perfect. A must visit in town. Highly recommended.

Fed up with the Indian food. Try this all you can eat. Go for the deal with unlimited beer. Select you own ingredients and the chef will cook them for you. Let the staff guide you and pick small portions good food great flavours reasonable value if you drink enough beer.

The restaurant is situated in the basement of Raintree Hotel on St Mary's Road. The ambiance is quiet and has that look of exclusivity. It offers a la carte and buffet options for Thai & Chinese food. We started with Vegetable Spring Roles, but Raw Mango Salad awesome and unbeatable. There is a buffet table where you can select your... More

Situated in the lower floor of the Raintree hotel, the decor is very nice and typical traditonal Chinese. The staff are great and speak very good English. The 'concept' is to pick a bowl, fill it with vegetables, meat, seafood etc then hand it over to the chefs and they will stir fry it in front of you. (1000 rupees)... More

But after my meal here, i realized that, THAT was precisely the exciting part of your dining experience. Fresh veggies, wide variety of meat and sea food options along with an interesting choice of sauces. i kept... More

The 3rd restaurant of the St Mary Road Raintree hotel. Great asian food, location is less good than "AboveSea Level" or "the colony" in the same location but personnel and food remains at top level. Compared to other "street asian" (for instance 200m west, there is a Thai), I really prefer, for about the same price, the Chap Chay.

It was a poor choice on my part to have picked this over rated restaurant on a special day. The mushroom soup with vegetables was dull, Panko white bait was dripping with oil and did not come with the promised Wasabi Mayo and the nested prawn roll was also super greasy. I understand fried means oily, but the sight of... More
