Not impressed - won't be returning

Me and my partner went here at the end of March and we weren't that impressed after reading all the good reviews. The starter was good, deep fried prawns and crab & sweetcorn soup. But the main didn't go down well. I had chicken satay and it was very salty and my partner had such in plumb sauce... read more

Went there with my husband. We were nicely surprised. Its so far the best Chinese restaurant I've been to. Food was delicious and the staff was very friendly and nice. Great value for the money. We liked it so much, we went again next day for our last meal in Albufeira. Would definitely go back.

The food was so good we went back for seconds the next night. Well worth a visit, we'll definitely be going back when we visit Albufeira again.

My husband & I visted this restaurant 3 times in November 2014. The service was great & very friendly & great value for money. We had various dishes every time we visited & must say the duck dish I had was amazing. We will definitely return in April when we come back to Albufeira & look forward to trying more... More

We were greeted at the door by a very happy, welcoming gentleman who showed us to our table. The food and service was excellent and priced very reasonably. I was apprehensive about having oriental dishes in Portugal but was pleasantly surprised!

Best Chinese we have ever had. The Chinese lay that served was so sweet and couldn't do enough for us. Even posed for a photograph with us. Food was gorgeous and portion size was huge. Well worth a visit.
