“Beautiful food and lovely people and very good value!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten in the china city many times and would strongly recommend it and it is on a beautiful setting on the sea front. The service is very good and it has a todd layout and a nice buzz to it :)

“Really good Chinese, excellent value and good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

I have to be honest, we weren't massively enticed by any of the Chinese restaurants in Playa Blanca, but this place changed my mind!

The view here is great, right over the sea. They offer both a banquet menu and the normal. We opted for the normal and were not disappointed by the food, service or value. My partner was very impressed with the 1/4 duck, there was lots of meat and very tasty. He also had the sizziling beef dish which was really tasty and only 5.80 euro's! I had soup, spring rolls and a foo yung dish, all were freshly cooked and really good.

Would recommend anyone to give this a go, you won't have an expensive meal and should hopefully leave happy!

“What a fantastic meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

Having had a very poor meal further down the prom the night before, we were looking for something better. We were not disappointed. In fact this place more than made up for it. The set menu at 11.50 euros each was excellent. Chicken on skewers, pork spare ribs and prawn toast for starters. Followed by Crispy duck with pancakes for second course. Main courses to choice but the China City sizzling prawns were amazing.
My kids tried things they has not done previously and loved it.
The service is excellent - efficient and friendly.
I can't fault it, it's worth every penny. If you are in Playa Blanca in Lanzarote, you must go.
