“Rare delight”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had a wonderful meal in Papa Chans day before leaving for States. Husband had the steak and he said it beats any he had in the states. Unfortunately I can't frequent this restaurant as I do not live in the country. However when back in the area will certainly drop in.
Staff very friendly, meal was excellent and surrounding relaxing.

Recommend sticky toffee pudding.

“Nice upmarket restaurant in Broxburn”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

When you go beyond the small frontage, you will be faced with the almost totally black decor which we got used to very quickly and settled down to a lovely meal at reasonable cost. As the name suggests, there are Chinese and Italian menus which make for a quite special outing. The owner and cook are Chinese and take a pride in their work. The waitresses are Scottish and open to chat and some hints on Chinese food, if not overly busy. We went twice, including on Christmas Eve. Not busy but enjoyable. It has a bar as well but we did not realise at the time that it is a public bar so got slightly noisy. Hope to go back.

“Very impressed!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Came here last month, and loved every aspect of my visit.
The service itself is first-class, staff are really attentive and friendly. The food was also excellent, both myself and my partner really enjoyed everything we ordered - deep fried squid, pizza spring rolls (an unusual but brilliant choice!), mixed meat chow mein and beef burger... All very tasty! Would definitely come again and it is worth a visit if you are in the area. No faults and a great dining experience.

“Excellent Meal”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Had a lovely meal - we both throughly enjoyed it. Food excellent, came very promptly and service was good (albeit a wee bitty slow). Good value for money.
