And you will be thinking what the hell is a Chinese restaurant famous in Mauritius for? Well think again folks. The best dimsums, lipsmacking as you'll ever have. Actually this place has a bit of history behind it. It was one of the first restaurants opened by the chinese immigrants to the country in the part of town that is... More

Have not been for a long time.I don't know if the food is still the same or has changed.One thing is certain.The restaurant is no more as crowded as before.May be there are more choices now.I think a good refurbishment is important to attract new patrons.

Mouth watering BBQ pork and chicken. The Steamed chicken with Ginger was good but a bit cold to my opinion. But they don't have a wide variety of alcoholic drinks. A bit of work should be done in order to improve the restaurant's decoration.

If you want to eat Dim Sun, that's THE place! The restaurant's decoration is not very beautiful and a bit old, but the dim sun are oustanding and so many choices! Service is ok.

First Restaurant is one of the few places that serves Dim Sum at lunch so they have a bit of a monopoly on that market and they are always very very full at lunch times (book in advance if you arrive after 11:30am!) with local workers in Port Louis. However they are a bit 'fast food' and the quality of... More

Excellent MauritianChinese restaurant in the heart of old China Town. The prices are fair (not cheap), and the service is excellent. I won't be returning until First Restaurant catches up with the rest of humanity and REMOVES shark fin soup off their menu. I look forward to visiting them again some day!!!
