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 had differnt chicken dishes with noodles and rice and it's a nice change after some days of arab kitchen. Garlic chicken was particulary good.

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. The dual menu system is interesting though where you can browse photos of the dishes but in this... More

This is a good Chinese Restaurant with high quality food and preparation, sensible presentation, fair prices. Located within walking distance of most hotels also. Worth the visit when you are in Aqaba. That being said, it still allows smoking, despite public bans. Jordan's population is about 30 percent addicted to heavy smoking, and they are non-compliant with regulations. They spread... More

This place is a jewel. Good Asian cuisine at reasonable prices. You will be delighted with their entrees. Their Schezwan eggplant is a spicy and succulent entree that you won't be disappointed with, especially if you want to try eggplant like you've never had before. Nice decor and ambiance as well.
