We had an 11 year old and 7 year old with us. We had a set menu and all of us enjoyed all of the courses. Both children... read more

Fairly small, dull chinese restaurant. Felt like I was sitting in someone's living room. That said, the place was clean, the staff were friendly, and extremely attentive. The food was ok. It was tasty enough. However, I've had as good, if not better at home. The killer for me was definitely the cost. It was very pricey for what you... More

The food is good, the service is ok. It has a good view of the harbour, not so easy to see where it is not there fault, but it is up a some steps away from the actual front of the harbour, but it gives you a good view and people watching. The food and service is OK, but we... More

This was the only Chinese we ate in in Vilamoura so can't compare with others in the area but the food was of good standard and a good price and plenty of it, the service of the staff was good although we were eating fairly early compared to the average time that people eat, so wasn't that busy, we couldn't...

We found this place by chance but enjoyed the food so much we ate there three times. The food is very fresh and full of flavour. There is a great view over the marina as it is on the first floor above some shops which is why you may not see it first time. Highly recommended and good value for... More

We have eaten at this small restaurant for the past 10 years. The food is freshly cooked and is what it says on the menue, unlike some Chinese foods!. Lucy, the manger always chats to us and makes the whole dining experience rel axing and pleasant. She likes to please her customers. You wont be disappointed.

One of the best Chinese restaurants we have ever eaten in. Small but that takes nothing away from the food, all fresh produce and perfectly cooked. Could not recommend this restaurant highly enough. 10 out of 10 for taste.

We ate here one night towards the end of our trip. We would probably have ate here a 2nd time had we tried it earlier as it was really nice. The setting was lovely, situated a few steps above the marina so you had the view without the hustle and bustle. We got starters and mains and everything was good.... More
