We just fancied a Chinese meal and were directed to the Alibaba. We had the crispy aromatic duck which was fine, but nothing special, two basic chicken curries with rice and 2 drinks and it was over 50 euros.

We had the special menu which was reasonably price but we wish we had chosen from the main menu. The choice was prawn crackers, rice and a meat dish, no vegetables or no vegetarian option. The sweet and sour chicken came with just a sauce. All cooked fine but unremarkable. The service was good.
