A unique paradigm in dining and entertainment, China House exemplifies opulence. Designed to exude the warmth of a Chinese home and featuring contemporary and interactive Chinese kitchens, private spaces and a lounge, this restaurant embodies Hyatt’s innovative vision. It also confirms Grand Hyatt Mumbai’s commitment to creating unique dining experiences
Located on the lobby level, China House comprises four distinctive components: the garden, the restaurant, “I deck” (the private area on the mezzanine level), and the lounge. The restaurant itself flaunts five open kitchens and four private dining rooms (Ginger, Chilli, Cinnamon and Nutmeg). Unified by a clean, modern interior, China House presents a stylised interpretation of the traditional Chinese dining experience which, despite a distinctly contemporary feel, remains true to character.
The entrance to China House opens into a garden area where one can experience the pleasure of dining in pagodas surrounded by natural bamboo plants. A bridge over flowing water leads diners to their tables – an exotic beginning to a wonderful journey.
Each corner of the restaurant has a tale to tell. The interactive open kitchens feature five stations – an appetiser section, a noodle and dumpling station, the Peking Duck station, the wok section and the dessert station. The ‘Pick Your Fish’ corner, where guests select their favourite seafood from natural seawater tanks, and India’s first wood-fired Peking Duck oven are definitely a gourmand’s delight.
Chef Yuzuo Han and his team of culinary experts produce delicacies from China that include a fine selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The emphasis here is on the spicy Sichuan cuisine, along with signature dishes such as Peking Duck, Beggar’s Chicken, hand-pulled Dan-Dan noodles, and Northern-style steamed and fried dumplings. The Sichuan peppercorn lends a flattering tone to this cuisine, and makes it ideal for the Indian palate.
The experience of China House doesn’t end with the restaurant; that’s just the beginning of a journey into the night, as you walk into “I deck”, the private area on the mezzanine level. With its pleasantly subdued lighting, this relaxing retreat offers the perfect setting to linger after your meal over a fine single malt, or to celebrate an occasion with friends and family. To break away from the seductive atmosphere, switch gears and plug in your iPod, listen to your music and just chill out for awhile.
Contemplative, celebratory, elevated, free-spirited; these are just some of the moods you might experience as you explore all that China House has to offer.
