I'm not saying they are #1 Chinese Food in the world, but they are certainly #1 in Korea. Since I'm an authentic style Chinese food fanatic, I have tried numerous notable Chinese cuisine in Korea such as Pusan (Shilla hotel), Hong Yuan (Westin hotel), Dadong (riverside hotel) and mokran.... Among all these places, none of restaurant have served authentic Chinese food rather they served Korean style Chinese food.

If you want to try authentic Chinese food in Korea, I would strongly recommend it. I had dim sum course for lunch and Peking duck for dinner and loved the most of the dishes. Highly recommend it.

We found this restaurant while looking for lunch on our arrival day at the Marriott. As our room was not ready yet and we had an hour to spare we just wanted something convenient and local to the resort. First thing we stumbled upon was this restaurant where a super friendly and nice stuff greeted us at the entrance. Talking to Nick about their cuisine we very quickly made up our mind that we will have Chinese food for lunch (although we originally planned to look for something else). Oh boy, what a good decision have we made!
We ordered way to much food as there were so many great things to try on the menu. The Beijing duck was delicious, the jellyfish well seasoned, the scallops seared perfectly and staff super attentive. We never ran out of tea or had to wait to order something. During the wait time for the Beijing duck we had wonderful conversations with Amos and Nick.
This lunch was so wonderful that the next day we just had to come back for dinner.
For the dinner service we ordered cocktails, one of those was not much to our liking as the waiter forgot to mention that it contains tabasco and will be spicy, no problem, it got immediately replaced with another cocktail that was fruity and very much to our taste. Of course, we ordered the Beijing Duck again and this time some Abalone for appetizer. Again a most wonderful experience!

I had tried few times of Chinese cuisine during my stayed in Jeju, it’s really hard to find an authentic Chinese/Cantonese food in Jeju but le chinois served very good food! I love the sweet and sour pork, their double boil soup, abalone and tofu! The food taste can tell that The Chef put in lot of effort to cook and prepare from presentation till they serve. Great ambience and service to the service team too:) will definitely come back again when I visit Jeju.

A modernize designed Chinese restaurant with typical Chinese background music which really bring up the ambiance of this restaurant. Service was pretty good, the staffs were very friendly and always had a great smile. The food served were awesome and with real authentic Cantonese taste which is as good as those we had in HK, Macau and Singapore. Worth trying if you visit Jeju Island.
