We went to this south east Asian restaurant and unfortunately found it not in operational. Was disappointed, cos was looking for some good SEA food in Xiamen. Well we are not sure if this restaurant is out of business or shifted to some other place. Thank you.

Very good meat together with a very spicy soup (I like it really very, very hot; more than Indian phall). Speciality is a lager beer brewed in a small Xiamen private brewery.

We had a small break from the stone fair and a local frienf recommended this place. It's nice and clean, the service is good and it's nice to be approached in english in a restaurant in China..... The cold papaya salad was fresh and tasty, the tofu pad thai was nice. The fried squid was so-so - it wasn't squid... More

We have been eating at this small restaurant 6 times now, so I feel we have tried and tested the place over a period of time. We usually go for the Thai spring rolls (available in small and large portion), the vietnamese chicken salad, the Pad Thai, Beef of chicken curry with rice. We also tried their mango ice cream...

Hello RemoraSurabaya, firstly thank you very much for your feedback. I am very sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience at the restaurant recently. Just to address your concerns in order: firstly with the Vietnamese chicken salad, the seasoning is already mixed within the salad, there has never been an accompanying vinegar and plum sauce to...

This place is great. Very clean, bright, and joyful. The food taste very like the real food of southeast-asia. They have a lot of different dishes like curry, skewers, salads, bobun (which I love), real Pho, mango sticky rice and so on. And not only the food is good, the price is cheap! You should try!

I tried the minced pork dish.. It was not great. For a person who likes spicy food the pork dish will be a disappointment. The chicken wings were too oily! But the chicken Thai dish was good.. The food is affordable .. Can visit only once...

Hello Dhar17, Thank you very much for giving TOSEA a try. I am sorry that you did not like Thai Minced Pork Curry- this in fact is not a spicy dish, it is described as a "fragrant pork curry" in the menu. In order not to disappoint in terms of level of spiciness, we are introducing a chilli rating system... More

I don't normally write reviews but thought I should because we stumbled upon this restaurant called TOSEA in Xiamen and the food there brought back some of the tastes of my childhood memories. We had the Malaysian Curry, the Vietnamese Pho and all the starters. For desserts, my wife ( well travelled caucasian) had the Mango (she loved it!) and... More
