A comprehensive menu with classics in the Hong Kong, Peking, Szechuan and Cantonese styles. Our meals... read more

Smart restaurant with white linen, attractive oriental décor, welcoming staff and high-end Chinese food. Enjoyable dining experience which is a far cry from some of the other more basic establishments in Olhos. It is hidden away, not being on ground level, so be careful not to miss it. A little expensive but very tasty food.

We chose to have a set meal for two which included wonderful wun tun soup and prawn crackers followed by four dishes which included the showstopper of chicken with orange - oh so velvety... More

Having paid €9.95 for a bottle of house white wine I has shocked to find it being sold in a shop round the corner for €2.09
