“Price high, quality low.”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I see other reviews enthusiastically endorsing this place as "just like home", but if that's the quality of Chinese food that you have at home I feel very sorry for you indeed. You can eat better Chinese food for less money in Melbourne!

The fried dumplings came out luke warm, as did the tea. No green tea available. No Chinese vegetables (e.g. bok choi, choi sum) or, indeed, any purely vegetarian dish (we're not vegetarian, but it's nice to have some variety) was available. Meat dishes came out with that terrible, rubbery over tenderised meat (both beef and chicken) that is, admittedly, common in cheap Chinese places the world over. There were only three tables dining but it was very difficult to get any service anyway.

“A complete surprise! Delicious!!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I usually never eat international food that is not indigenious to the country i visit but we were invited by new travel friends to join them at this Chinese restaurant and we couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! We ordered the tofu veggies and diced chicken. It was just like the Chinese food in our hometown in Atlanta, GA. WOW!

“Chinese like home!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

If you have been wary of what asian food might be like in Bolivia, come to Chifa New HK in Sucre. Food quite like you would get at home, tasty , big portions and good service and very good value! Two mains and a big bottle of coke plus tip cost us 105bs (approx 12euro). Would go back here!

“In the Land of the Blind, One-eye is King”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Doubted between giving it 3 or 4 stars. It's hard to find Chinese food in Bolivia, so you can be quite pleased with this place, which really makes an effort of bringing you Chinese food. The prices are allright, the portions are big, and the waiter very friendly. Although, it is NOT Chinese food as you would find in China, it still is the next best thing in Sucre. They do take-away as well.
