Reviewed September 10, 2013

My girlfriend and I ate here as it was very close to our hotel and we were very impressed with our meal. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Recommended.

“Disgusting - Needs to be shut down!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

1st ever review on tripadvisor. Went on New Year's day for take out. I was the last customer and interrupted staff eating their dinner.

What they serve you is NOTHING like what the staff serve themselves!

Chicken & mushroom soup - in brown gravy.
Steam dumplings - lukewarm - you can put your finger in it
BBQ Ribs - in brown slop
Fried rice - plain rice with mix veg

I actually went back and got my money back for the soup as I thought that this was the mushroom side dish (due to the brown gravy), which I never received.

I live in Bugibba and this is the WORSE Chinese that I have (ever) eaten! I will never eat here again and will warn everyone away.
