Top restaurant - the management, staff and of course the food are all excellent. If you are a large party I would recommend the show cooking. We always visit several times whilst staying in Tenerife, once we went two nights in a row and enjoyed the same meal. Wonderful.

Have previously dined in the restaurant and that's what prompted me to return. Food and staff are excellent. We had the banquet meal for 4 and it was superb! If have dined in most of the restaurants in tight Safari Centre but this is the best! The showing cooking is fantastic and I will book this on my return.

We have eaten here twice and it is excellent food. Make sure you book and if you want to enjoy the theatre of live Japanese cooking (The kids will love it) then make sure you tell them you want seats at the Japanese table.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay and made it our destination for our final meal. The service is first class and the food is excellent. Superb selection and each dish has its own unique taste. It is located in the Safari centre, a great setting for an enjoyable evening out. The water fountain display at nine and ten... More

Beautiful food.on the pricey end of the spectrum but worth it.we liked it so much we went back another night.staff were friendly.not pushy. Nice bar across the road that do tasty cocktails (harrys bar).I'd advise booking if you want to eat here. We got a table but there were only 2 of us.we booked the second night.

Ate here after reading Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed! Tried to get in on Sunday night but it was fully booked so booked for Monday. The food was gorgeous - one of the best Chinese's I've ever eaten - but the best part about this restaurant is the service. We had about 5 different waiters all treat us... More

Western type Chinese Food here is about as good as it gets. We were impressed with the service, quality and price for the meal we had here. Can highly recommend but arrive early or book if you want a table.
