Wow, what a fantastic Chinese restaurant, we walked around a lot to find it as it is in the shopping overlooking the Marina not the Beach. Well worth the effort. Outside not much to look at, inside, very nicely furnished. Excellent service, delicious food and also a special offer of a free bottle of house wine, well it would be... More

We visited the slow boat twice during our 6 night stay in playa de las Americas. Food is delicious and very reasonably priced! Very fresh food! Got to be the best Chinese here! Free bottle of wine too. We also got two complimentary shots on our way home! Staff where friendly and helpful!

My family and I had a delicious meal here yesterday. Tricky to find as it's on the first floor of a shopping complex but do persist as they have really good food. Crispy duck was fab! Vegetarian dishes also highly recommended. Friendly staff and a popular place even though it's set back from the mains drag...you won't be disappointed!

Although located upstairs its views are limited . The food however is excellent . We chose a banquet for 2 which comprised a lot of food... More

My wife and I Came here last night after checking out the reviews . Had 4 starters and a main meal each ,the service was quick and the food really nice ,I just wish we had a microwave as we left most of our main meals as the starters were really big .Would not think twice about returning here again.

Staff are pleasant and helpful, they have a chap who knows all the gluten free options which really made things easy for me. Will... More

We have been coming to Tenerife for over 17 years now, visiting our expanding family, and no trip is ever complete without having a meal here in the Slow Boat. Don't ever be put off by the surrounding area, or its actual decor in the restaurant itself, because the food is excellent, because its small the service is personal, and... More
