“Birthday meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

The food was great and the staff very friendly. Was sad as the place was very quiet. This had nothing to do with the quality of the food probably just the location as it away from the main part of Tourist Street

“The Best Chinese Food In Bugibba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

We love coming here, we come here so much the staff know us by name and what we want without us asking. Extra Spicy Noodle, Hot Crispy Chilli Beef, Battered cauliflower, Sweat n sour chicken.. Heavenly we pay €20 as we get a little discount. can praise the place enough. the staff are great, friendly and will make things that are not on the menu if they can. you can find this restaurant located opposite the Bugibba Hotel. well worth a visit and very reasonably priced too, outside seating great for our summer nights here, not a great view but good for people watching which is always fun.. great take away too

“Very nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The restaurant was not far from our hotel so we thought we should try it.

A good choice on the menu with portions being offered in 'normal' and 'small' sizes.

We got given prawn crackers when seated & orders were taken quickly.

I went for cauliflower in sweet & sour sauce. It came battered which was a nice surprise and it was a huge portion, a large dinner plate full. Delicious flavour. Hubby had shredded chicken in hoi sin sauce with pancakes. The sauce was more like a hoi sin gravy, not like what we get in the UK, but nice enough. We shared apportion of rice.

Loads of food and with a drink the bill only came to €20

Service was good, the only downside was they turned up the TV for some fellow Brits to watch!!

Happy to recommend.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

My girlfriend and I ate here as it was very close to our hotel and we were very impressed with our meal. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Recommended.
