“great food & location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We went for the asian food. Had an asian menu with delicious starters and a main course with 3 different kinds of fish/meat. The food was superb! So was the service! On the balcony overlooking the street there are a few tables. We found this to be a great place to sit outside (as the weather was perfect) and have a great view onto the sea and promenade.

“Three Visits in 2 weeks!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Ate here 3 times in 2 weeks when staying in the hotel. Last Thursday of the month they do a 'Buffet Night' its not to be missed, its fantastic. Brilliant sushi, full range of asian dishes, great selection of desserts. Good service and only €29.90 pp. The rest of the time the normal menu (also with set meal options) is excellent, try the Beef Rendang and don't miss the Sushi or Dimsum!

“Nice Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Nice Sushi
Fun to come to Malta and eat good Asian food. The place gives a feeling of International environment and very good food. I tried sushi. The rice was perfectly cooked with a good taste of vinegar, salt and sugar. The fish, crab and roe tasted good. I drank a local beer which harmonized well with the food. This place is definitely worth a visit. Must be one of Malta's best restaurants
