“"Go to" place for Expats in Shekou”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Probably the best place for date night in Shekou. My wife and I have been coming here for years. The food is great and the atmosphere more upscale than most places in the area.

“Always a good meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We have been to the Gyspy restaurant several times and have never been disappointed with the food, drinks, or service. It has the feel of a western style restauarant and the staff is very accommodating. The food is a wide variety of choice and is always good.

“Excellent food, super staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Here's a place I can't get bored of. What is most enjoyable is 1/ the menu, that has a playful middle-eastern twist (kebabs, hummus, and even the rarely found sumak salad!) 2/ the freshness of ingredients (grilled imported meat, and quality seafood) 3/ the very friendly staff (most are here for many years, a rarity in China!) 4/ the fact that the owner is present almost every day: no concession on quality, and good tips on wine list / meals.
I come back to Gypsy's every time I am in Shenzhen, it's definitely one of my favorite joint in Shenzhen. To get there, simply ask "Seaworld" (haishang shejie) to a taxi driver. Walk straight in front of you towards that crazy boat on dry-docks (it seems it was offered by General de Gaulle to China as a gift!!) then turn left at the raindrop cafe and keep walking a few meters, it's right there.

“Reliable Western Food in Shekou”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Our factory's western management team started eating here years and years ago. Compared to lots of the other Shekou "western" restaurants, it is good value for money, with large portions and good flavours. They deliver to our home and to our office which is quite a ways away, and the food is still hot and fresh. I love that about China and Gypsy's in particular.....lots of staff means quick delivery. It can be loud, and I have been a couple of times when (usually European groups) take advantage of the fact that China has not caught up to the non-smoking world, and puff away with no regard to other clients. But I have been here about twenty times and this has only happened twice. Perhaps management should be thinking of better ventilation - there will be lots of customers - more and more - who hate this. Angelo's not far away is non-smoking but a little more expensive. I have never seen any issues with discouraging children - always lots of families here. But sometimes I notice westerners let their kids run amok. I might ask them to manage their kids too, if I was the owner. So, I guess it depends on your priorities, and what one thinks is appropriate restaurant behavior for kids. BUT as far as food and service goes, I like this place alot. The waitresses always remember us, and have been there a long time, so offer a pretty good standard of service. One of our guys won't eat anywhere else unless forced!

“The owner don't like children but smokers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Gypsy's offers good food but many Westerns with children would stop coming to this restaurant after being told to carefully manage their children. The way it comes out show a strong dislike of families. On the other hand, I asked to keep a door open so the smoke could go out, but the owner wanted it to be closed so he won't loss smoker clients. A sign should be put out saying, children are not welcome here but smokers are!
