excellent food and service

We wanted to diversify from the tapas, and got the recommendation for Son Hao. Not much of expectations to start with, but after being there and seeing the reviews, we have to corroborate most of them. The food is very good.

It's obviously a family business, and they do it really well. The owner is exceedingly friendly and made us feel very welcome. His wife cooks the food, which is divine. If you're looking for great Chinese/Taiwanese in Barcelona and a pleasant dining experience overall, definitely give Son Hao a try.

The service is particularly excellent. The food was amazing. The Atmosphere was muted and comfortable. One of best places to eat that I have found so far in Barcelona.

My parents had quite enough tapas and risotto after ten days in Barca and a cruise ship, so we decided to visit Son Hao. The place is old fashioned decorated, but the food is excellent. Though they are you fairly ryun-of-the-mill Chinese dishes they were executed very well. The owner is very chatty and friendly. It wasn't really busy at... More

Very good food breaking away from the commonly known Chinese, with a lot of spices and full of aroma. Also very freshly cooked. The owner is very pleasant and welcoming and the whole experience was very interesting. We went there with our children aged 6 and 8 and they loved the whole experience: food, customers (mainly all asian) and decor.... More

And that has to be the best recommendation going. Tripadvisor has proven it's worth, thanks to it's high recommendation I went for dinner. I was the only non-Chinese in the place, which immediately made me realise this was a good choice. I had the Tawainese pork and fried rice, both very good. However, the ribs, were a bit dull, lacking... More

We were really looking forward to giving this place a try. Shame we walked miles to get there only to find they were closed. Huge tip, put your opening hours up on Trip Advisor because we would have visited last night instead if we'd known!!

Family run restaurant, with an unsurpassed welcome and goodbye! I loved the fact that the owner warned me when we had over ordered, and when I veered into spice territory - warned me something was too hot. The food was, as described by others, as good as any Chinese I have had. Service was homely and eccentric - delivery of... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor and its reviewers we experienced some of the best Chinese food we had across the globe. My wife and I haven't eaten Chinese food across North America, Europe, Asia including China and have never had anything better. Not only was the food superb but the service was great and the owner was very helpful in advising... More

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
