“A very good restaurant for Chinese, Tai and Indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Located on the rood of Cecil Hotel in the center of down-town Alexandria, Rameleh Station, the view is fantastic, with a nice Chinese decoration, friendly atmosphere, and tasty food with quite large variety of selections. The service is good and the taste is good but not 100% Chinese taste as in other more specialized Chinese restaurants. It is considered touristic place, hence 22,5% VAT are added on top of your bill making value for money very expensive. There was no soap in Men's room and in general cleanness could be better

“O Why, O Why O Why”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Now this hotel has been a gem, wonderful service etc, but why would you put a Chinese restaurant on the top of
Such a land mark. Now down to the nitty gritty. Food- horrid, Thai food with too much 5 spice?? In Thai which should have clean clear fresh flavours, the whole meal was a disaster. My companion wouldn't eat thier dish as it was not palatable.
Service- unlike the rest of the hotel, very slow and not attentive at all. They need to take some lessons from the staff at
jardine down stairs. Ambience- with a view like that can you go wrong!

Maybe I'm an incurable romantic, but an Egyptian restaurant with a Bedouin tent, carpets on the floor, seating on upholstered mats would make sense, giving guests an authentic experience not some pseudo Chinese/ Asian trip.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

The food was absolutely great and they served us very quilckly. It is in the city centre, with a great view over the Corniche. It is a bit expensive but no more than expected. The meat in a hot plate was really good and also the starters. Highly recommended for a special ocasion.

“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.
