We eat here about once a month. We've never had a bad meal and keep coming back. Even the kids like it. There's lots to choose from and if you have a picky eater the chips are hot and crispy. There are plenty of staff on hand, service is prompt and friendly and the manager is always nearby. We love... More

The food we ordered was terrible, the dim sum seemed like the frozen type, the honey chicken was mostly batter and way over cooked, the lady laughed when I asked for a large wonton soup as it was apparently for a group of people (didn't say that in the menu), the only saving grace was the beef with broccoli which...

The best Thai we have had in a very long time. The view is beautiful, location amazing and food outstanding. We plan to go back next visit and our children are so excited.

My friends told me this was the best Chinese restaurant in town so we had to try it. We went for the Peking Duck and San Choi Bau and Special or Western Fried rice. My friends had never had the former dishes before so were quite interested to see how they were. They said that what we got was half... More

The restaurant needs to improve the customers services, and to re-arrange the place. Quiet far from town but has nice view.

Very friendly owner, you feel like at home. Food and service at their top for a chinese restaurant. You can also talk with the parots. Quick service, fresh and good food. We go there with full family every week end and we enjoy it.

We ate at Harbour View restaurant for lunch and loved it. The sweet and sour prawns were fresh and tasty. We also had spring rolls, a few noodle dishes, prawn crackers and siu mai. A great, authentic Chinese meal that I will return to when we get back to Vanuatu.
