“Great view, good view, a nice place to go with a small group and enjoy the evening.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

There are actually a couple locations for China House (the other one I know of is just north of the Four Seasons hotel on the side street), but this spot is clearly referring to the location on the top of the Cecil/Sofitel Hotel. During nice weather (which is the overwhelming majority of the weather you'll get in Alex), this is a great place to go and sit and enjoy the incredible view from the top of the hotel. The menu has Chinese, Thai and Japanese sections. I love Chinese and Thai, but I don't care for Japanese/sushi, so I can't say much about those. The Chinese is very good, and the Thai is excellent.

I definitely recommend this place.

I enjoy Thai food, so I always pick Thai food here. Only place in Alexandria I found that does really good Spicy Food!! Spicy Chicken with Rice is superb. Amazing view and area; good place overall.
