“Two years on and still very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Two years since my last visit to Paphos and this place was a 'must' according to the kids (in fact all of us) as they enjoyed it so much last time. Even though our hotel was all inclusive, we had to visit again and were not disappointed - still great service and food.

Well worth hunting out this place (and climbing a few stairs)

“Disappointed!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We visited here to celebrate Chinese New Year and were disappointed. My partner, who is Chinese, had spoken personally to the Chinese chef to try to check on his style of cooking, which he described as 'North Chinese' and assured us that our request for spicy food would be satisfied. We were greeted on the evening by the owner, Stelios and found the interior and setting pleasant as well as the service. However the food was disappointing and uniformly sweet, despite my partners insistance that I am diabetic and certainly not genuine Chinese. If you really like genuine Chinese food Xiang Gong is not reccomended, a fact borne out by a local Chinese lady my partner met.

“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.
