It's one of handful Chinese restaurants in Havana Chinatown. Food was tasty and menu included the typical Chinese dishes. But the hygiene was very questionable. We found a dead cat next to the outside seating. The waitress even didn't bother to clean it. She just moved us to the inside seating.

While wandering around the downtown area, we found a small Chinatown with a couple of lions in the street. A small alley has four or five Chinese restaurants. This one seemed to have the most Chinese patrons, so we ate here. It was one of our favorite meals in Havana.

Nice change from standard Cuban fare. This is one of several places in the Cuban sponsored China Town. A bit pricey - CUC 7.90 (1 CUC = 1 US$) for most dishes, excluding rice, but portions are large. Sit inside or out, but the outside tables are usually targetted by third rate street musicians. Like the other places, it's staffed... More

No booking needed, the noodle dishes were as you would expect and cheap too. The red wine was palatable and a pleasant change from beer. The waitress spoke very good English and was polite and attentive. Worth a visit for a change especially of you have been out in the sticks for a while.

Prices were really high here - $5 for a bland, relatively small portion of noodles. Menu says 10% service is added. Went we got our change, I was picking it up and the waitress ran over to the table immediately and said that we needed to tip her because the 10% was for the kitchen staff. So then why to... More

A reasonable Chinese restaurant with a good variety of options. For Cuba it is certainly amongst the pricier options but if you are keen for some variation from the typical Cuban dishes this is a good option.

They just opened a new location in Western Havana, the same excellent food and service. It may be the best Chinese restaurant in the entire Cuba. A must visit place every single time to Havana...

The food was ok, but very simple. In our opinion it was too expensive and the ambience wasn't good, the staff wasn't very friendly either. I regret going there, the restaurants up the street looked better.
