I go there often, for their dumplings! They are friendly, service is very good (not excellent as they forgot to bring one of my dishes....happened twice) They have nice visual menus, comfy tables, nice cozy location.

I am an American that has traveled extensively throughout the workd, spending years working in Chicago's and San Francisco's Chinatown areas. I ate here recently as I wanted to introduce my Jordanian wife and her family to Chinese food. The food was decent True Chinese food, far from the best, but good Chinese food, but totally disappointed in the service.... More

We were in Aqaba for a short 2 hour transit and we were hungry after a 4 hour road trip from Amman. As we were walking around Aqaba Gateway Complex, we spotted this beautiful cozy restaurant tucked away like a gem. My boyfriend wasn't a fan of Chinese food at first, but he agreed to go in because he loves... More

一次自己去一次跟朋友去,菜的味道真心太走样了(不管是中式、欧式或者美式中餐,都没吃到过这种味道),有些菜做的更像是汤。而且最悲惨的是份量极少,米饭也要付费。如果不是想吃中餐快崩溃了,没必要去,因为是镇里唯一一家(以色列边会比较多的选择)。强制的10% 服务费。I am from china and this is probably the "weirdest" taste Chinese food I have ever had (compared to authentic Chinese, European or American Chinese food). Some dishes look more like a soup. The most unfortunate is the portion - it is really small and the rice comes with extra price. Unless you are desperate for some Chinese. Unfortunately... More

This is by far the best chinese meal we have in Jordan. The fish is deliciously cooked and the fried calamari has a very special dough taste

The negative review opposite is quite surprising and does not reflect our experience. Although it was our first visit, there were other customers who had obviously been before and were commenting to the waitress about how nice the food was as per their previous visits. It was a fairly chilly evening for late November in Aqaba, so we ate inside... More
