Had the misfortune of ordering 'authentic chinese food' from fa yian at CP. The delivery time taken by them was close to 100 minutes and when i opened the packed food, they sent non-veg instead of veg food i ordered. When i called the restaurant, they said that it would take the same time(100 min) to replace the food since they deliver by metro. Instead of amending their mistake they unapologetically accepted my offer of delivery by auto/cab for which i had to pay in advance. Regarding the quality of packing, they would put street vendors to shame by their pathetic quality. I really dont want to explain about the disgusting and ice cold, quality of food they sent. There are many more better chinese restaurants in CP, so just stay away from fa yian.

Value for money. Best Chinese food. Do not miss the Fa Yian Special Rice. Large portions served
They serve POLO as mouth freshener. Brings out the Child in you.

Awesome and authentic Chinese - It is a must visit for every foodie. The food along with the service make for an excellent dining experience. The quality of the food shows up in the freshness and lightness of the dishes.The restaurant has won several write-ups and easily boasts of the best chinese in New Delhi
Do ask for the restaurant bestsellers and do speak to the owner/hostess...ANU for what to order. Most of the dishes are my personal favourites. Being a local, I visit this place once every week.

Overall, a clean and quiet place for a wonderful and satisfying meal. NOT TO Be MISSED

After 2 weeks of Indian food we needed a change. Found this restaurant and glad we did. Very tasty food. We ordered the garlic veggie balls and tried to order kung pao vegetables but the server somehow told us we should order something else, so we said "uh okay" (we were kind of having language communication problems I think) and it was just plain stir fried vegetables - they were good, but we were kinda hoping for kung pao. Oh well. They also have some pretty good ice cream - we tried the toasted almond.
The price was about $20 USD with steamed rice, a bottle of water and the above mentioned entrees - which is kind of pricey for India...
Quaint, cute little place. Clean and good service. I definitely recommend if you're willing to pay a higher price for food.

The restaurant has earned several accolades for being the most authentic chinese restaurant in New Delhi, or so the certificates displayed proudly claim. I am quite frankly not a big fan of Chinese cuisine and consequently did not find the grub here exciting. Ordered the basic, noodles with Meat balls, they were prepared diligently and succulent but did not quite enjoy. The prices are economical so if you'd want to believe the certificates do visit, they will probably have Chinese meal prepared better than you could find anywhere in Delhi. It didn't work for me though.
