Maybe its an impression but this restaurant seems to have improved since our last visit. Once again on a Wednesday night it was very busy (suspect that the 30% discount was maybe responsible) but by 7 o'clock there was quite a large queue waiting to get in. Good selection of dishes although some could have been warmer but overall a good experience.

We choose the buffet option here, as opposed to choosing from the menu. There was a decent choice of dishes,which were regularly refilled. There seem to be various offers on at different times at this restaurant, on our visit we bought one round of drinks and received the second one free.
The staff were friendly and welcoming and the meal worked out great value for money.
Well worth a visit!

Probably equal best (other being The Step Inn) of what we have seen over 9 of 12 nights thus far in Caleta.
For those reading previous reviews this was a Thursday night and we guess Wednesdays & Saturdays are main change-over days in Fuerteventura and thus the special buffet offer at this venue.
There are similar named Chinese restaurants in Caleta so to be sure of which we refer to; note "WOK Slow Boat" across the road from another "Slow Boat" the one we visited being upstairs on a 1st floor .... also at other end of small complex and also 1st floor International Chinese Buffet (also reviewed).
We were attracted by the description & price of meals described on the exterior (ground floor) menu so ventured up the stairs thinking to ourselves that if empty we might give it a miss. There were several tables taken so we investigated further and found that it is both a buffet and menu restaurant. The buffet was of a standard that we thought looked good and would often go for, but instead decided to order from main menu anyway.
In keeping with English/Chinese translations we can (with the benefit of experience) explain the Drinks Menu: The "2 for 1" Section means that if you indicate to this section and order a drink you will be brought another as soon as you finish it "This one is free" you will be told with a smile, it does not mean you can both have the same drink at the advertised price. The section below "Not 2 for 1" means this is the price you pay if only intending to have one if these drinks .... Seeeeemple!
Greeted with a smile and easily seated all was well until I asked about the ingredients of a particular dish, it then became apparent that the Chinese girl waiting (authentic at least) only had an English vocabulary that was verbatim to the actual menu (still better English than my Cantonese!). No matter ... a better English speaker/managerial and front of house personal chef was quickly on hand!
We chose our starters; Spring Rolls ... Not overly exciting (wish we could get Bean Sprout type Pancake Rolls like in UK), but main courses were excellent! My wife's Chicken & Almonds and my "House Specialty" Shredded Beef in Emperor Sauce were both brilliant, the accompanying egg fried rice we ordered was perfectly cooked with just a bit of al dente ... but then if the Chinese cannot cook rice perfectly we might as well all give up!
We were even offered to help ourselves to ice cream (free offer we think) for a desert but did not want to eat any more.
So not special offer night, from menu, 2 Starters, 2 Mains, 2 Beers & 2 Large Cokes about €24 ... We felt it necessary to be generous with the tip!
Highly recommended!
