Cfef here will make up a meal from the days fresh produce and do a very good job.Food is good quality, good price and very nice,duck in plum sauce is excellent.Never left here disappointed,pity the chef cannot get back to the closed Chinese in the Buganvilla Plaza, he would really get it moving again and it would be closer to me?

Bit of a strange header I know but Chinese restaurants in the West fashion their food to the western palate. Real Chinese food is very much different proposition and probably just as nice. That said this restaurant serves great 'Western' Chinese food. I live in Vilamoura and there must be 4/5 'chinkies' on the Marina. Not one of them is a good as this one. I even drive 20mins there and back when I fancy a takeaway - I could get one on the Marina in 5mins!

Extensive menu served with lots of freshly sliced and diced vegetables. The chicken is proper chicken and not this reconstituted dried then soaked rubbish found in other restaurants.

Watch out for the drinks with ice. Tall thin glass full of ice doesn't leave much Coke Cola for the young ones or the adults when you have a spicy dish and yet they charge you handsomely for it. Ask for a tin if they have one.

Parking can be a bit limited on the street outside but it is all worth it.

This is at another level from your traditional chinese restaurant . Chef Michael ensures you have a memorable meal and will adjust his menu to suit your tastes. Nice ambience in secluded area.

Chinese Gourmet holds a legendary status within my family we continually return year after year - the master chef Mike is a delight and treats his customers like royalty his food is the best Chinese I have ever tasted he offers a wide selection and only treats the menu as a guide customisation is a must! Please spread the word I look forward to many more meals here!

OK, you are on holiday in the Algarve so really should be eating like a local or pushing the boat out and having a Monkfish Cataplana or Seaffod Rice but if you absolutely have to have a Chinese, then this is the place to have it. They will also take orders for delivery in the "Triangle" free of charge (but you lose the 10% discount on take-away). Order at 6.30 and they will have it to you by 7.00 pm still piping hot.
