Yuan Tung Chinese Restaurant Review by Sadaf Farooqui
Located in a side lane off main Tariq Road in PECHS Block 2 is a quaint, vintage Chinese Restaurant housed in a bungalow, known as Yuan Tung. The entrance to the side lane in which this restaurant is located, is directly opposite the huge, distinguishable English Boot House outlet located on main Tariq Road. The entrance to the restaurant welcomes you with the Chinese-style architecture. As the menu is concerned,Most of the main a la carte entrees are priced between Rs 300 and Rs 600. They serve 2~3 people. Besides thisthe Chow Mien and Chinese Rice menu includes some egg dish called Foo Yoong, Beef, prawn and fish are also on the menu. The address and phone number is also printed on the menu. With that being covered, the ambience is a mix of traditional Pakistani, combined with the typical red-lighted Chinese décor, and the red-and-white checkered tablecloths remind one of an American diner. So at last we ordered Yuan Tung Hot & Sour Soup, priced at Rs 360,Chicken Chillies with Vegetable for Rs 360.
The vegetables were tender yet crispy-crunchy; just right, Prawn Fried Rice priced at Rs 380, andChicken and Prawn Chow Mien, priced at Rs 420.
This was out of this world.All entrees were more than enough for two hungry adults, each. We had to have leftovers parceled. The total bill was reasonable compared to the extremely good quality and quantity of all the food! We love dining at Yuan Tung. In fact, it is an old family favorite.
Verdict: As I said, the absolutely unparalleled, authentic Chinese taste of all the dishes we have had to date at Yuan Tung make it a family favorite, especially during winter, when we often crave hot soup in a cozy environment.
The restaurant is very family friendly and has a high turnover i.e. if you arrive after 9 p.m, you might have to wait for a table.
