Yes the view is the best bit ! We thought the food was mediocre and it's served on earthenware dishes that are cold ( no table heaters !). My noodles were just lukewarm when they arrived and were soon cold.

We ate here while visiting Galway, and we stayed in Salthill. We walked here from our hotel, and it was so worth the windy walk. The spring rolls are really good, and then we tried a few different dishes as well as some different beers. Very good service, and food. They have very good recommendations as well!

We didn't have a booking but the staff were happy to facilitate us. From the moment we sat down to when we left, the service and experience was delightful. The restaurant is on the first floor so there is a beautiful view over the sea. Food is delicious and served with great efficiency and warm, friendly service. We had the... More

Consistently great service and delicious food. Well worth a visit if you fancy a nice chinese meal. Takeaway options too. Nearby parking is plentiful and if the weather obliges, the prom is on the doorstep for a pre/post dinner stroll!

A very pleasant chinese restaurant with a lovely view of Galway Bay. Although very busy we still managed to get a table without booking. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our meal was very enjoyable and tasty and the service was fast and efficient. An all-round nice experience but would suggest booking in advance as it appears to be... More

Had been here for a dinner when staying at Salthill. The restaurant has good ambience and nice views of the sea. However, I didn't find the food very impressive. I had veg spring rolls with chow mein. Both were very bland and I was left looking for taste. The spring rolls were very close to the frozen ones found in... More
