Found on Royal road in Port Louis if you are looking for a traditional Chinese restaurant at an affordable price and clean premises please give this place a try and you will really enjoy the service and food. Food is EXCELLENT and service with a smile

Don't waste time here. We wanted to dismiss this place after reading the reviews and local. Accidently drove past this area when we were searching for Fort Adelaide/Citadel. Shops were pretty old fashioned (as if backdated to 20 yrs ago in our country) and it's a very congested area. Local suggested us better to have our dinner back at Grand... More

We weren't particularly impressed with China Town in Mauritius. If it weren't for the paifang (Chinese archway gate), it would have been hard to distinguish this part of town from the rest. The people were friendly and there were Chinese food and shops, but it's nothing special.

It is situated in a really poor part of Port Louis. Not worth a visit, it has more of a poor african atmosphere rather than China Town.

If you have seen the Chinatown in either Hong Kong, Singapore , New York or Toronto or most other places for that matter , this Chinatown is a super pale comparison. Forget the hyper buzz , the palpable noise levels , shops crammed with goods of all sorts that one sees elsewhere....this Chinatown s a watered down version . Very... More

We enjoyed a couple of trips to Port Louis. Unlike some. if we are in a resort, this doesn't mean we are unwilling or incapable of venturing out, or seeing something that is a contrast to the excesses elsewhere. Chinatown and the markets of Port Louis are a little chaotic and bustle. Traffic fights for the inch of space on... More
