The restaurant inside is impeccable , lovely decoration and the outside terrace was well spaced out. Had the set menu for 2 and everything was delicious. The mixed starters was huge and everything was so tasty hardly left us room for the main. Main course...was equally as tasty , rice cooked to perfection, sweet and sour chicken was beautiful and the crispy shredded chilli beef was the best I have ever tasted. So much food had to take most back to the apartment and all for just 20 euros per person. Will definitely be returning when back in paphos ! You must go hereMore

We looked at the reviews for this restaurant and thought we’d try it … We decided that it was t anything special , and didn’t finish our meal .. the curry sauce tasted like it was out of a tin and the noodles were stuck...together and didn’t taste good .. wouldn’t recommend 👎🏻More

First time I’ve been into Paphos for Chinese food, and it was well worth it. We decided to go for the set menu (2), as it offers a selection, and even though there was only two of us, we must have been served enough food...for four!! We ended up bringing half of it home! The meal was absolutely delicious, the service was excellent and the price very reasonable (including a bottle of wine we paid €60). The only downside for some people would be the accessibility, there are quite a lot of steps to climb to get to it, and no lift, but I would certainly recommend giving it a try.More

Just back from our evening meal at the Xiang Gong and we are really glad we went. We used their online booking system & were glad we did as it got very full very quickly. We read some of the other reviews before we went...and do wonder whether we all attended the same restaurant! Stairs - yes. It's a 1st floor restaurant but the stairs are not difficult. Friendly staff. We had a quarter portion of crispy duck - probably one of the best that we have had for a long time. The duck was actually crispy. Mains were really tasty & portion sizes were good. Highly recommended.More

We ate here last night and is probably the the best Chinese we have had, portions are a good size, friendly staff and good service. To start with we had the duck spring rolls, satay chicken and salt and chill ribs, all really nice the...ribs just fell off the bone. We then had the crispy duck pancakes which where lovely and every bit of the duck was crispy. For mains we had the crispy chilli beef, sizzling chicken satay and mixed special noodles, the noodles had loads of meat and fish in. We ordered to much really as did not realise the portion size. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back.More

Excellent Chinese food which our family of 8 enjoyed. We managed to get a turn table without booking which helped with sharing the food. Everyone enjoyed their meals even the children who do not normally eat this type of meal. Soft drinks were a little...expensive though.More

Visited after booking online. Table inside which is air conditioned which is a must. Ordered starters of ribs and calamari. Calamari was excellent. Duck good and tasty. Satay chicken not the best, crispy shredded beef good. Rice good but noodles sloppy. Beer expensive for little...330ml ones. Service attentive. Generally a pleasant experience but not anything out of this world.More

One of the other reviewers below hit the nail right on the head when he talked about "texture". Too often Chinese restaurant goers mistake taste for texture... What make good Chinese food so different is the range of texture that one diner can cover from...soft, to crunchy, to spongy, to... And this is where Xiang Gong excels. I have travelled throughout my life and eaten repeatedly in chinatowns all over the world - inc. China. It is VERY rare to find a place where you can order a sweet and sour pork and, when eating it, close your eyes and delight are the crunchiness of the outer, whilst the pork meat melts in your mouth, its taste enhanced by the sweet tartiness of the sauce! Almost every dish is as exemplary, with the duck and fresh mango rolls, the stuffed aubergine with minced pork and prawns, the minced pork yu sung (served with ceberg lettuce leaves!), the sweet and sour pork, the garlic scallops, the onion and ginger steamed sea bass, the Cantonese beef filet, the crispy shredded chilli beef, the crispy bird nest beef filet, the lemon chicken and the fried bean sprout or distinctive favorites! And it is not just me loving it! When I parted with my ex this is the place where she asked to have our last meal together! And my son, visiting for a week before heading back also asked to come back to Xiang Gong for his last meal! Oh - and the wine list is also great with a good mix of local and foreign wines: and if you are bewildered by it, just ask for the "Cotes du Rhône" - you'll not regret it!...More

My partner isn’t the biggest fan of Chinese food but even she enjoyed this place and wants to return. The food was excellent. I asked for slight differences and these changes were adjusted. When eating Chinese food I think many people don’t understand the importance...of textures such as crunch and shape and these were spot on so well done. We were made to feel welcome. Nice big comfortable seats (I’m a big guy) and I highly recommend the ribs. I’ll be back before we leave. You have to climb the stairs to get there. If you turn left you enter a French restaurant. Turn right for the Xiang Gong Chinese Restaurant. See you soon.More

Well presented but sadly a disappointment. Tasteless, suspect out of a bottle supermarket sauce. Service, many communications issues as staff struggled with basic English. Far better option at Imperial restaurant 5 min walk further down. Travelled all over the world and china, really cannot recommend...this as a Chinese.More
