“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

After venturing onto the strip to find somewhere to eat , we were approached by a lady giving out menus for this place. We decided to give it a go and i have to say it was superb ! We eat off the 12 euros menu and the food was excellent.. Waiter was very friendly .

Would recommend

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

We had a superb meal in this restaurant and the service was very good. We were also pleased to find that, in addition to the delicious Prawn Dumplings, Beef Chow Mein, Beef with Onions and Fried Rice, they offered Fried Ice Cream!
We first discovered Fried Ice Cream in a chinese restaurant in Turkey and this is the second place we have found that does it. Here it is served with an Orange sauce as opposed to honey and pine nuts and was just as delicious.

“Wonderful food and Waiter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We went here for lunch on Friday 4th October, having been given a leaflet the night before, we were attracted by the write up on the front of the leaflet saying they had a magnificent sea view terrace, when we arrived and said we wanted to eat on the terrace there was a blank look from the staff, however our wonderful waiter Vincent took charge and said no problem, I will set a table up for you.
Due to the crisis they had not opened the terrace this year, it was a little shabby, but the view more than made up for that.
Vincent waited on us as if we were royalty, we had the special set meal for 8.90euros and it was excellent, too much in fact.
The house wine was lovely and chilled and the coffee was good also, make sure yoou ask to be served by Vincent he is a real treasure.

“A Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

We loved the decor , atmosphere and most of all the food in this place . When u enter from the street this place doesn't look much but when you enter you feel like ur in Beijing with the fabulous intricate decor and Chinese designs all around . The staff are very attentive and were always happy to help . In terms of the food we found this place to be fantastic as its really good value for money and each dish we had was very tasty and non greasy .There are also some much touches at the end of the meal which made this place special for us like a complimentary glass of port to finish off !!
