Expensive

I had the crispy half peking duck and it was a little dry and I payed around 12/14 JD and had only the meat, anything I wanted in addition I had to order on the side and it got expensive in the end. The springrolls was tasty and so was the soya mix served with.

Great food and nice staff, visited 3 times during our week in Aqaba. My favourite was the tofu formosa with fried rice + a Budweiser! ;)

We stayed at Tala Bay but drove into Aqaba based on other Trip Advisor reviews of this restaurant. We were very pleased with that choice, as it was well worth the 15-minute drive back into town. We have enjoyed Chinese food the world over, and have to say this place is right up there with the best. Liked the atmosphere... More

Food is average at best. Ambiance as well. Service was fine. Biggest problem were the runs the next day. Could have done without those. Eat here at your own risk.

This restaurant is like the waiting area of a Chinese takeaway...with tables. Located in the aqaba gateway behind McDonald's it lacks atmosphere. Having ordered the lemon chicken it came with a type of batter that I would normally find on pineapple fritters.
