Little China is considered as one of the best Chinese restaurants in Lebanon. It serves a wide range of food. The food tastes good although we don't get the same super taste everytime we go there. The prices are fairly good compared to other restaurants.

I always have the best chinese food when I come to this restaurant. It is run by a chinese family which makes the food more authentic and original.

Would certainly go back. Not premium quality. But hot and fresh and authentic flavors. The ambiance is also authentic. Gave me a feel of being in China town in NY.

In lebanon, not many people understand the chinese cuisine and so many restaurants get away with many things. Little China is by far the most authentic one I’ve been at. Good for for a very good deal (financial) i go there on a regular basis, and is the only chinese i will eat at in lebanon!!!

the food was almost not eadible. Flavorless, obviously microwaved, location extremely tacky and I would not recommend anyone to visit this location when in Beirut, a beautiful city that offers so many better choices!

Although it is a little out and hard to find, Little China is a real gem! I have been there at least 3 or 4 times and the food has always been great, it is very clean and the atmosphere is unique in a city like Beirut. The service is friendly, the prices are reasonable, and it is often filled... More

Chinese cuisine ranks among our favourite, besides Italian and Thai! Since moving to Beirut, we were constantly on the look out for good, authentic Chinese and 'Chopsticks' just wasn't cutting it for us. A colleague and friend introduced us to this restaurant two years back and since then we have coming to this restaurant at least twice every month. We... More

Flavourless and blah. The quality was equivalent to the kind of chinese food you get in a shopping centre. Hot and sour soup had too much vinegar, steamed chicken dumpling was a gross lump of dough, spicy beef wasn't spicy, sweet and sour shrimp tasted like sauce from a can and the noodles were dry and bland.
