“Great views, good service, food fine.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Not the best restaurant in Playa Blanca, but it's cheap, cheerful, has great views over towards Fuerteventura (next door to Tipico Canario). The staff are friendly and helpful

“Long walk but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We are staying at Marina Rubicon and have thoroughly enjoyed the restaurants but took a notion for Chinese food (there aren't any Chinese restaurants there). So thought we would walk along the promenade to Playa Blanca, 30 minutes later we arrived at Jumbo and after the huge portions we were glad to be doing the long walk back!

We couldn't decide on what to have so went for the €12 set menu. We were not disappointed. Prawn crackers, followed by ribs and spring rolls, the staff were great and gave us enough time to digest one course before they brought the next. The crispy duck pancakes that came next were delicious, with what was clearly home made pancakes. Next came the HUGE portions of sweet and sour chicken, beef curry and egg fried rice. A bottle of wine at €9 and some lotus flower liqueur to finish off, made for a lovely night out.

Hard to beat for Taste, value and service, although it was quite amusing watching a 'table territory' thing going on with the restaurant next door - where both the Spanish and the Chinese waiters (same company owns both) had promised the same table to their respective customers - all sorted in the end!

So if you are at the marina end, or closer, well worth paying a visit.

“Jumbo Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Just back from a lovely hioliday in Playa Blanca. Ate at the Jumbo Chinese twice - delicious food, good service and good prices.
Fixed menus were great value, you can change the dishes if there's anything you don't fancy.
Staaff are very friendly and at the end of your meal you get a free Oriental style digestive + a free drink of your choice.
I'd definately recommend it.

“Good Chinese at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We ate at this Chinese restaurant twice, and we had delicious food both times. The portions are on the large side!, freshly cooked and the prices were very reasonable compared to home. We had salt and pepper ribs and Chicken in black bean, the blackbean sauce was made with fresh blackbeans which tasted delicsious, we also had the vermicelli, again very good. All in all a good choice to eat in. It's also quite entertaining watching the Tipico Canarian restaurant next door seating people in the chinese restaurant area when they are busy, the faces of the customers is so funny to watch! Found out the Chinese Restaurant own the next door room, so that's why they share!
