If you want authentic Cantonese food in Cebu, this is about as close as you can get. TOS has been an institution for tourists and locals alike for over 15 years. You can not go wrong with this one.

We purchased several promo vouchers and used these to book 7rooms for a two night stay at Shangrila Mactan, Cebu. One of our very nice experiences as a group of 14 people, was the very good food as suggested by the supervisor, Maricel Saberon, at the Tea of Spring Cantonese restaurant. She seated us at the secluded part of the... More

The food was great but the servings were small. The service needs a bit of improvement. They forgot 2 of the dishes we ordered. But the price of the ala carte is a better option than the buffet.

Service and food quality and menu choice make this a top Chinese restaurant. Great atmosphere. Pity about the hoarding outside the restaurant window for the new F&Boutlet

The Tea of Spring, which is in Shangrila Hotel, Mactan, Cebu, serves a select number of Chinese dishes, which are mostly tasty and not the "pedestrian" type. We had, for example, crispy eel flavored with "everlasting memory tea" which was very good, stewed pork ribs Shanghainese style served with Chinese 'cuapao' bread, braised eggplant with minced pork_ a bit spicy...

I guess it all depends on everybody's standards. I have been to several Chinese restaurants around the world and few of my favorite restaurants in the world are actually... More
