Quick and no thrills service but very good food at a very affordable cost. Three large meals plus drinks for 20 euro...excellent value.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

From outside China House looks drab and not very exciting ( building work nearby, lot's of dust). Once inside however it is clean, freshly decorated and comfortable. The food and service are both excellent and we had a superb meal

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

My wife is not normally a fan of oriental food although I love it. Just to appease me with the holiday almost over she agreed to try it. Wow what a brilliant restaurant, its deceptive entrance from Triq Spinola just doesn't do it justice. Inside the decor is just right. The staff curiously mainly Mediterranean waft about carrying delicious plates of food. Even my wife admitted the food was rather good, praise indeed from her. I also noticed a very smart elderly Oriental lady with a European companion. I think she eats there regularly the way the staff were attending her table. (I don't think she was the owner) She was really getting stuck in to a table full of food. She was showing her friend the fine art of traditional oriental eating. Always a good sign. I just wish I e'r we had tried this wonderful eating house before. You can bet yer chop sticks if I return to Malta I will be sampling that menu again. I wish they had a branch in Derbyshire. If you like oriental food and I have travelled all over the world you will not find anywhere better. Go and enjoy.

“Very Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

Only the second Chinese I've had in Malta. Was quite looking forward to it based on other reviews.

It was all quite poor, especially in relation to the over inflated cost.

Starter of chicken wings in 5 spice was a disgrace. Basically deep fried 'bits' of chicken wings (only one whole wing!) dusted with spice and salt. Awful.

Prawn crackers were as you would get anywhere.

Pork balls in sweet N sour were certainly not balls and could have been chicken or pork. Sauce average.

Egg Fried rice Ok.

Beef with mushrooms and Chinese vegetables was actually very tasty, but looked unappetising.

There were 2 dipping sauces that both tasted of burnt marmalade!

All in all strange. €26 for the lot wasn't expensive in it self, but factor in the quality and it was very poor value.

Shame.
