“Best chinese meal ever”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Dined here on our last night in Cebu. Should have read previous reviews as ordered far too much as portions huge. The prawn and mango salad is an exceptional dish, probably one of the best in my lifetime of any sort of cuisine and certainly the best chinese. We brought out the non english speaking chinese chef for a round of applause to thank him. We also had peking duck and they made up the pancakes for us which I must admit we found very lazy!

Great meal, great service. One thing.....if you want mojitos, get them from upstairs bar, not this one as not as good. Best to have something else here and retire upstairs for a few of those later!

“breakfast & dinner”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We had breakfast in this restaurant, it was so crowded, you need to quie to be seated, it was rush with around a hundred guests especially between 9 and 10. It was noisy and many staff running and cleaning, felling, and arranging the dishes. Varieties of food Chinese, American & intercontinental breakfast, with special corner to make fresh noddle’s, and different type of eggs.
The tea is always served cold  I don’t know why?

Overall for an included breakfast in the room rate, it was ok 

at night the same place turn to bar with light foods.
