Good enough, friendly on the wallet

For those that remember the older Monot Street days... this took the same spot that the original Sushi Bar was on (1997-2001). The decor is original with Chinese music/CCTV channels on and simple yet adequate dining space. Hot & Sour Soup was excellent, also had vegetable spring rolls that were... read more

We've been there many times as its close to our house. The food is always very good. the service is probably what you'd expect from a local Chinese restaurant in China i.e. don't expect to be fawned over and the feel is authentic Chinese restaurant. The service is good enough, the food very good (particularly for Beirut) and the bill... More

After staying in china for approx three months and tasting their delicious food in different provinces, I can tell that Little China has a lot of authenticity. The restaurant is a family business run by a husband and a wife. you can feel from the atmosphere, the food and the service, that they put all their heart and energy in... More

Everything we ordered was yummy. The hot sauce is homemade and it is superb. Noodles with Shrimp is not oily and tastes good. We had it with Spicy Chicken dish. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large. Setting is a popular Chinese restaurant. Don't expect a fancy restaurant setting. TV at the place shows Chinese news and songs.

For the price, the food is pretty good. The place is owned by a nice Chinese couple who have mastered the Lebanese accent. My favorites off the menu would be the spicy chicken and veg spring rolls. I would definitely recommend.

This Chinese restaurant could be one of the best Chinese restaurants in town but it needs much more ambiance.... the food is ok.... but it needs more life ... the inside is a bit dull... it doesn't make you want to return again..... We ordered Shrimps sweet & sour + noodles and for dessert Chinese leeches ... The plates were... More

I love my Chinese food and Little China is my new favorite place. There aren't many good Chinese restaurants in Lebanon, so this is a pleasant surprise and one of the best offered here. It is a owned by a Chinese couple. Cozy atmosphere, good prices... will go again. Definitely try the Little China salad.
