The WORST Chinese food I have EVER eaten. Extremely OVERPRICED. I ordered Chicken and Broccoli which was served in a small styrofoam box, chicken was dry and bland and NO RICE was included. Paid extra 💲 for vegetable fried rice that was absolutely disgusting and included NO veggies and was not even fried ! The calamari tasted like it was... More

The food was the worst ever. I've eaten in hundreds of Chinese restaurants and this one by far is the worst - I've eaten better dog in the military than the food they gave us. We promptly took the food back and they refused us a refund then went for a medical checkup to make sure we were not poisoned

Had sweet and sour chicken and wonton soup, sauce was not good, quality of chicken was very poor. Very old/dated looking restaurant but very beautiful, service was good.

Food had nasty taste in general. Put together very cheaply and it showed. Wine was served in extremely small glass, like a child's size at best. Very disappointed.

Quite good was within the hotel we stayed in and can recommend it. Quite a lot of Chinese eating there which is a good sign.

We ate lunch here during our holiday, and find the restaurant very neat and clean. The food was very good, especially the soup. And it was quite reasonably priced. One section of the restaurant was nicely set-up for a school function, apparently, during our visit. So look like it is also popular with the locals for organizing events and functions.... More
