“Two thumbs up for food and service”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Its not everyday that you would want to eat at a fine dining Chinese restaurant. But during the times when you would want only the best, you wouldn't want to compromise. In Cebu, I can only count with my fingers the best Chinese restaurant there is in the city.

Last June 8 was one of those times when my family wanted to have dinner together and we agreed on good Chinese food. We opted for Choi City at BTC.

When we arrived we were greeted by their staff with warm welcome. There were 6 of us and one 2-year old girl. We were given a big round table enough to seat us all.

For our food we decided to skip the soup, we went straight to the main course. We ordered their famous layered pork or some kind of lechon kawali, a medium order cost us P700. My daughter loved this so much that it was the only thing she ate. We also ordered their cheesy buttered chicken, the very yummy broccoli beef its also P700 medium order, but it would feed around 5-6 persons already. For our rice we had Yang Chow friend rice, we also had mixed garlic vegetable medium size, siomai, siao long pao, and a gigantic serving of Crispy noodle with beef brisket. Then we had our drinks, we wanted to order dessert but we decided to have it somewhere.

Medium size orders are really big and we ended up taking home almost half of every serving that we ordered. The food was so good that we werent talking to each other anymore and we were just eating. We ended up paying around P3600 for all our orders with drinks. And if you divided it by 7 persons the price isnt that bad.

When it comes to service, all I can say is, Choi City staff have been trained to give you the best service. It was overwhelming. They are very warm, and they even provided my daughter a hot towel because she got so messed up while eating. I'd say they're the best.

But note that it gets very packed on weekends specially during dinner time. So if you plan to dine there, make sure you reserve.

“authentic chinese restaurant”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Try the Steamed Lapu lapu, Peking duck, Mapo Tofu. Comparable to the better known Chinese restaurants in Manila (like Choi Garden, Tao Yuan, Gloria Maris). Service is fast, the restaurant was not full the time we ate, it was a Monday night.

“Best Chinese Restaurant”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Choi city has the best tasting Chinese food in cebu. They have the best choices of live seafood, roastings, and dimsums. The prices they have are all worth the pay, since you can really tell that they use the finest ingredients. Nothing can also beat the excellent service they provide.
