“lots of lies being told about lai lai,s”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

After reading all of the wonderfull reviews about lai lais i was expecting quite a good meal here but i wasnt going to get one.Me and the girlfriend ordered chinese dumplings, wantons , and prawns for starters ,
The dumplings were undercooked and a strange blue colour looked like testicles
The wantons resembled ryviters ( crackers ) really thick and flavourless ( but still the best bit of the meal )
And the prawns were lukewarm and slimy like they had been left out of the fridge for hours. The main courses were no better chicken chow mien came with spaghetti not noodles very strange, and the chicken curry was a plate full of carrots and onion with what looked like a oxo cubu sprinkled over the top. I cannot understand the reviews because none of the food in cuba is anygood but this chinese is especially bad, there really must be bad chinese restaurants in canada for these people to like this place .*** just to add im not a moaner this is the first review i have ever done dont waste your money eating out in cuba ****

“Great Value”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

We stopped in at Lai Lai in November and each ordered a full meal which was a mistake, so much food. This tiime around we shared a meal, the portions are really generous and the prices are reasonable. You also get a great view of the beach as you enjoy your meal. Highly reccomended to Chines food Lovers
