It's very good because it's in Saudi, a place you won't expect to find good Chinese food. I enjoyed myself and the portion is quite big. Atmosphere is a little unusual as its dark, more like a night club.

it is located in Al Rashid mall. it serves wide variety of chinese food and some other international food. the food is very tasty and matches with the international flavors (i.e. not so much chinese and mild in spices). Atmosphere is very nice and causy service is very nice from polite and friendly staff

Every time I step in to this restaurant I feel like I'm in a nightclub and some chick will show up half naked right in front me. Average food, overpriced, horrible interior design.

They don't always have everything listed on the menu. Sometimes it's great and other times just passable. When they do it well, the food is delicious.

Spring Rolls for starters were really BLAND, had to add salt to get any taste. Teriyaki Chicken was amazing, really really nice but the Chicken Cashew was tasteless and the chicken look anemic, needed to be fried in something tasty. Not really impressed, taste didn't reflect the prices really. Shame because the ambiance and the décor was fantastic. Will carry... More

Been searching for Chinese Restaurants in Al-Khobar and finally stumbling on to this restaurant... I was excited to dine because it has been a long time since I have eaten Chinese food. As I saw their menu, I was surprised on how extensive their menu was. So it took me a while to finalize my order. But unfortunately, some of... More

I've been to many Chinese restaurants but most try to cater every taste with fusion and new modern cuisines! I give this a 5 Star because of the following: - The ambience is traditional Chinese culture warm and rich feeling - The food is wonderful and rich in flavor and the aroma is mouthwatering just thinking of it - The...
