We drove from Gibraltar to Manilva and we were faced with a huge choice of restaurants in this complex. I've only visited here once, but I get the impression that baste numbers of tourists have to eat here every night so there is no need to offer quality food. The restaurant is very busy, like all the surrounding ones, but... More

The starters were okay, salt and pepper chicken wings were excellent, the dim sum was frozen and arrived 10 minutes after the first starters arrived. The mains then came with the Thai red curry, chicken basket and picante squid being inedible. When asked for the manager they never arrived they just took the dishes away and bought the bill.

Tried this place twice. The food is ok but you can be in and out in 30 minutes. You really get the feeling they want the table free ASAP. The lady on the front trying to muscle in new clients says it all. Drinks, starters, mains then bill in half an hour. Not a place to relax.

My husband and I have eaten here many times in the last 12 years and always had good food. The staff are friendly and the service good, as is the value. They also provide a takeaway service.
