I always come here with my mum when we crave chinese food! The food is incredible, the staff are very friendly and service is quick! The restaurant is huge and even has a playground outside for the little ones. Definitely worth a visit whilst in Dar, you won't be disappointed.

The place is like a canteen as compared to a restaurant. The portions are too big, the service leaves a lot to be desired.

The food was good, tasty. But as in most Chinese restaurant, be aware that the quantity is slightly more than an average person can take. You need to remember this especially if you are a group of 4 or more
