I've eaten here twice in three days. First night had vegetables and noodles. The second night garlic ditto chicken. Great beer, wonderful spring rolls. The complementary coleslaw and cucumbers are excellent. Quiet atmosphere. Quickly my favorite restaurant in Aqaba.

I really enjoyed this small and coquette Chinese restaurant in the heart of Aqaba City! The food is absolutely wonderful and the atmosphere so cosy and original. Highly recommended.. Bonne Apetit

Serves good Chinese food. Lots of choices in the menu. The restaurant is clean and has a nice atmosphere, but the toilets in the back of the mall complex were pretty awful.

They also serve alcohol, which can be nice if you haven't had a drink for a week, although the price makes the bill increase significantly at 4.50JDP a pint (£4/5 Euro).
