No-frills city centre joint offering cuisine from across the Chinese provinces, with super-friendly service.
While its location, hidden up a tiled close off bustling Renfield Street, might not suggest impressive dining, this unassuming spot offers some of the most interesting Cantonese food in the city. Commitment to providing exceptional hospitality is clear – manager Cindy personally greets guests while presiding over the excellent service that the staff provide. Diners are treated to detailed and informed advice on the menu, which includes well known dishes in addition to the more exciting and authentic. Food is served at the table, bringing a little elegance as bamboo steamers laden with delicious offerings are carefully unwrapped by the waiting staff. Highlights on the menu include an excellent kung po – tender and tasty beef in a rich, spicy sauce, the crunch of the cashew a welcome interruption from the heat. From the more authentic pages of the menu, sanbei chicken, which comes with careful warnings not to eat the purple chillies, is full of colour and fiery flavour, a great combination of garlic warmth and chilli spice. China Blue might not look much from the outside, but it’s definitely worth exploring.
