I have been to this restaurant over and over again with my family and friends and have also ordered take-aways quite frequently. The portions have always been really generous, the food fresh and lovely and the service impeccable. Not to mention that the prices are so much lower than many places I have been to. May I also add that two friends of mine who have lived in China and visited the country quite often say that this is the restaurant that offers the food that comes closest to the authentic.

Me and my husband visited this restaurant for a takeaway Chinese meal on our penultimate night in Malta. What a mistake! Service was good and the restaurant itself was nice, so we expected the food to be aswell.

We ordered lemon chicken, noodles, egg fried rice (all very simple things to be on the safe side). The noodles seemed like they had been boiled on the bag, the rice was old and unpleasant and the lemon chicken wad laughable, little cubes of 'iceland' or reconstituted chicken with cabbage, lemon juice and no batter.

The main thing is that the food was not nice, barely edible if at all.

I visited this Chinese restaurant with my husband, mother, aunt and uncle on the last day of our visit to Malta. We definitely left the best till last. There are a wide selection of dishes to chose from, we chose the sharing platter for 5 starter followed by a main course for each with rice and noodles. All dishes cooked perfectly, we were offered a choice of how spicy we preferred the dishes to be. Before the meal we each had a short and mixer to drink, a bottle of wine with the meal, coffee to and mints follow. The total bill amounted to 86 euros, and once the bill was paid we were offered a drink of our choice 'on the house'.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area, I'm sure you won't be dissappointed.
