After 3 months of traveling all over China, Dolphin Sports Bar completely surprised us and was overall the best western restaurant we tried (including lots of western food in Chengdu, Beijing, Shanghai, and all over Yunnan). When we arrived in Sanya, we ate dumplings at a street stall and both ended up getting food poisoning. We were at the very... More

Can't say I have ever been disappointed here. The four cheese burger was delicious and all the other things I wanted on it, presented no problem. Chicken Quesadilla was just....slap your momma good. Excellent service and a delightful hostess who inquired after the meal on our satisfaction with each dish.

If you're tired of hotpot and various other Chinese dishes and are craving a very good burger and to speak in English, this is your oasis. There's often live music, theme nights and an increasingly raucous crowd as the night progresses.

I've been in China for five weeks now and, before going to this bar, I've not experienced any western food as good as the burger from this bar. Good prices on both food and drinks. Friendly staff.

It is the most lively bar in the Dadonghai area but stands out with just normal cover songs and simple drinks and bites. Maybe the crowd is mixed between local and foreign but it misses some class. Sadly the Heineken on draught we ordered was clearly not Heineken and that puts in doubt if the alcohol is real or not.... More

It's a good bar, waiters really try to help even though not all speak English. Decent burgers and cold beer from the tap. Lot of foreigners.

When we arrived at the restaurant our 10 year old daughter started crying as we had left her bag containing her IPad in a taxi. The manager working noticed my daughter was upset and spent more than an hour tracking the taxi from when it left our hotel until it dropped us off at the restaurant. She was able to... More

An ex-pat Anerican-friend brought us to his local home-away-from and the food was delicious! If you need U.S./American food, this is the place to visit + you can catch a sports event/game on one of the many televisions!

Fun sports bar with good food and friendly staff. They have a live band after 10pm (not sure if daily), drinks were quite pricey.
