There are two show-stoppers for me at restaurants in Luanda: cleanliness and service. Chez Wu excels in both categories. I've eater here around 15 times since 2008 and have never had an even slightly negative experience. Their bathrooms alone (usually a good indicator of what goes on in the kitchen in terms of hygiene) are neater than 80% of the Chinese restaurants I frequent in New York City. Wait staff are some of the nicest Angolans and Chinese you'll find in town. As for the food, it's a bit too center-of-the-road pan-Chinese for my taste, but the variety is solid and I've never been disappointed. Solid cooking, but they really could take it up a notch in terms of signature dishes or what not--especially given the rather high price point.

I've been going to Chez Wou since I first arrived in Luanda in 2002,and let me tell you It hasn't changed since then (accept the location).The food there is great,so is the service and so is the atmosphere.The food is really close to authentic chinese food.I recommend the hot&sour soup,the
"special fish",and the "carne de vaca picante",the arroz chau chau is also really nice.You should also consider trying the deserts,they have a good selection.The restaurant includes a V.I.P lounge in case you were wondering.It's a great place to Enjoy a family lunch or dinner.

This Chinese restaurant has good foods and reasonable prices compared in other restaurants in Luanda. This is a must visit restaurant. It is suitable for a large group.

Closest to China that I have been is this restaurant in Luanda. The atmosphere and the service are very good. The food is very varied, and the orders are delivered very fast.

Big round table with rotary tray, will take a large group for some great moments.

A must.

Food is great and a reservation is advised. The tables are very close one to other what makes to feel crowed even when it´s empty. Food is top quality and I never had a problem.
