The food is tasty. Portions are big. Very good value for money. I recommend this place if you are hungry and looking for good food. It is not a trendy nor a chic spot.

I went there with a friend as we were craving for Chinese food and it was recommended by a friend. The service was fast (at 7:30pm) and food was good. We had spicy tofu, beef with green peppers, and shrimp dumplings. We were happy with our selections. The waiter was not super friendly (like in other restaurants) but he was... More

This Chinese family run business is your typical Chinese restaurant ! This outlet although diverting from the original concept, still offers great Chinese food! Try the chicken with cashew nuts the way it's meant to be! The duck is also very good. So little China is by far better than any Chinese you can find in Lebanon

For those that remember the older Monot Street days... this took the same spot that the original Sushi Bar was on (1997-2001). The decor is original with Chinese music/CCTV channels on and simple yet adequate dining space. Hot & Sour Soup was excellent, also had vegetable spring rolls that were fantastic along with the chicken dumplings. Ask for the chili... More

We've been there many times as its close to our house. The food is always very good. the service is probably what you'd expect from a local Chinese restaurant in China i.e. don't expect to be fawned over and the feel is authentic Chinese restaurant. The service is good enough, the food very good (particularly for Beirut) and the bill... More

Everything we ordered was yummy. The hot sauce is homemade and it is superb. Noodles with Shrimp is not oily and tastes good. We had it with Spicy Chicken dish. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large. Setting is a popular Chinese restaurant. Don't expect a fancy restaurant setting. TV at the place shows Chinese news and songs.
