“Chinese with the wow factor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We love Chinese food. We are also half-expecting to be disappointed. In Paphos there is an absolute gem!
Located upstairs, next door to the Amathus Beach Hotel, Xiang Gong without doubt offers the best Chinese food in Cyprus.
Unpretentious, without some of the 'glamour' that can be associated with Chinese restaurants, this eatery offers food that must equal the best in the world.
Stelios the owner is as Cypriot as they come but behind the scenes he has selected a Chinese team that can produce magic from their kitchen.
None of the 'stodge', thick batter and gloop that can represent the sad face of Chinese food, Xiang Gong produces excellent flavours and dishes that we have not encountered before.
Consider the excellent fare, the cost is very reasonable.
If you like Chinese food and are anywhere near Paphos, look for the Amathus Beach Hotel and you will see Xiang Gong on its left. Don't miss it!

“Best Chinese Restaurant in Paphos - maybe even on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We went with a group of 9 people on Christmas Eve and it was brilliant. We threw ourselves on the mercy of the owner on what to have and he did not disappoint. It was a thoroughly good evening and the food was delicious. Even the prawn crackers came with grated carrots and sliced ginger. It was so good, we went back on our own on New Years Eve and had another excellent meal - the Aubergine and Cauliflower is to die for! Not expensive but exceptionally good and tasty food.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We wanted to book somewhere to eat at around 5.00pm so that we could drop our visitors off at the airport. We rang this restaurant and they said that they opened at 6.00pm, but after explaining our situation they said that they were happy to open at 5,00pm for us. We were greeted by Stelios and one of his waitresses, the food was amazing and they also included 2 complimentary dishes. We will definitely be returning.

“Don't walk by, excellent restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My wife & I checked into our hotel last Saturday (the 10th) & walked up the road looking for somewhere to eat & saw the sign for the Xiang Gong. It is one of those places out of the way a bit by been up a flight of stairs so not on the main road, please do not let this put you off. We walked & were very politely shown to a table. The restaurant is spotless & the staff so friendly. We ordered & were not disappointed as the food was lovely, we also had a lovely bottle of wine which is served in a wine bucket so was nice & cool. The portions were spot on & can say the meal we had was delicious, we even went back later in the week.
As the title says, don't walk by, walk up those steps & give the Xiang Gong a try.

“Excellent Chinese in paphos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten in Chinese restaurants all over the uk and Europe and this is definately in the very good category. Lots of choice all served on heated trays. Service is great and a visit is well worthwhile . My only minor critisism is like a previous reviewer the crispy duck is a little over crispy. But would def go back and still would get a 9/10
