“Average but could be much better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This is really the only decent or edible Chinese food in Granada, that I'm aware of. Don't go to the other ones. At least this place is clean and the people in the kitchen know how to cook in the Chinese style. The value is very good. However it could be a LOT better if they could use real Chinese ingredients in the food. For example, there is no tofu, no bok choi, no broccoli, no green beans. And like many Chinese restaurants in Europe, they use linguini noodles instead of real Asian noodles. In that sense it is like a million other fast food Cantonese places around the world which only do the Western version of the dishes. But here, the flavors are very good. The decor is nice inside. The staff is friendly. And if you really want a Chinese meal in Granada, this is the only place to go. Meaning that they have the potential to make very good Chinese food if they started spending a little bit more on the ingredients to create authentic dishes.

“Yummy, cheap and a nice break!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

After traveling for 3 weeks, all I wanted was some good Chinese food. Luckily for me, this place was just down the street from my hotel. It's small, offers a great "menu del dia" for 6.50 euro that is 3 courses, plus wine or beer and a desert!

“Great Chinese restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Doesn't look like much on the outside, but is a great restaurant on the inside. Good food at affordable prices, and we particularly liked their sweet and sour sauce. Yes, we know you are supposed to eat at Spanish restaurants in Spain, but if you want good Chinese food for a change, this is a great choice.
