Kinų bambukas is a Chinese restaurant across the street from Lietuvininkai Square. The owner and chef are Chinese. When you enter the restaurant, you can tell straight away that it is a Chinese restaurant, with red wallpaper and Chinese lanterns. I had taken pictures of the restaurant but may have accidentally deleted it. The image below is taken from the restaurant’s website.
There are both indoor and outdoor seating available. I opted to sit inside. The inside of the restaurant was not ventilated well. It was a little stuffy, and it smelled of oil. The waitress who served me was a local. She was friendly and always had a smile on her face.
I got the Chinese homemade salad (€ 7), rice with eggs (€ 1.30), and crispy chicken with sweet and sour spicy sauce (half portion for € 7.50). The portions are big! I was only able to finish half of each dish.
I was blown away by the flavors. I was not expecting the dishes to taste as authentic as they did. I am currently working in Beijing, China, and have been here for more than 10 years. Believe me when I say this is really good Chinese food, almost like how it is made in China.
The Chinese homemade salad consists of carrots, cucumber, Chinese cabbage, soy sprouts, vermicelli noodles, black fungus, seaweed. The salad had a well-balanced flavor of sweetness, saltiness, and acidity. I love the crunch of the different vegetables.
The crispy chicken was divine! The chicken was tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. The sauce was not spicy at all, but nonetheless, went really well with the crispy chicken.
I highly recommend this restaurant for authentic Chinese food.
