A good alternative to run of the mill Chinese food. Dining is quite and out of the way, great pick up point for 'on the go' as there is a supermarket on the same compound. Late closing time to match casino on compound.

Had dinner and lunch with friends.The servings are quite substantial and the taste is exquisite.An appetising pepper sauce is available.You can have a drink of your choice...the chinese tea finishes your meal.Great ambiance...good service...friendly staff...a bit pricey....but you are very satisfied with your meal.

The food is good. Nothing extraordinary. But great value. Good sized portions too. It is a very big restaurant. Lots of space if you have a big party with you. However I don't know if they are ever full because they few times I have been there it is relatively empty. The service is also not that great.

Here is a restaurant owned and operated by Chinese. You have authentic Chinese cuisine. You must try the Dim Sum. Service is very good. Food quality and quantity is excellent. Although, depending on when you go the Dim Sum menu is limited. Best time to go is Sundays for brunch. Location is not all that but when you get inside... More

This is not the usual Chinese Restaurant. Great for meetings, a family get together or reunions. Prices are a bit high though, but certainly value for the money

Located on the outskirts of San-Fernando, an easy get away to enjoy a tasty authentic Chinese meal. The value is great and the service is spot on. Had to wait on average 10 mins for our meals after ordering. Staff are courteous and though many are Chinese immigrants who speak little English they make it up with effort. Would definitely... More
