“Astonishing!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

I didn't expect to find a place like this on Gran Canaria. Extraordinary dining room, in exuberant Chinese / African / Japanese style, and excellent food, beautifully presented
Don't miss the desserts, whatever you do

“Fantastic place to eat”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Excellent service, great food and atmosphere. Very friendly and attentive personal. The food is just fantastic, good choice of wines. The place is very child friendly, very elegant and sophisticated at the same time. We went there three times during our two weeks stay in Maspalomas. Definitely place to visit!

“This restaurant is enchanted.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

It felt like a spiritual homecoming. So many oriental treasures to admire! The formula of sharing dishes is inspired. The food was extraordinarily good and brilliant. We had wonderful prawns to start with followed by duck and then the foie gras on sirloin medallions all entirely succulent. The 2002 Gran Calzadilla wine we drank was a great recommendation from Mark, our waiter.
The service was excellent. We even managed to speak to the owner about the restaurant’s concept and the vision which he has created there. The lounge / garden area at the back of the restaurant reinforced the feeling of welcome and attention given to the clients’ well-being. I could eat there every week.
