We visited this restaurant as we fancied a Chinese and the place looked really nice.

We were greeted and warmly welcomed by the friendly staff and sat at a table very quickly, the decor was good and spotlessly clean. Our drinks order and food order was also taken quickly and politely.

We had ordered a set meal for 3 and this looked on the menu to be very good value for money, except it didn't have a soup option which was a little strange as the other set meals did, this we quickly sorted by ordering the soup as an extra. The starters came out within a reasonable timescale but these were only just warm. As the place was not that busy it again was a little strange.

Then main course time this is when it really took a turn for the worse, the first couple of plates of food arrived and that is how it stayed for ten whole mins and by the time the rest of our food arrived the first lot was cold. When I quizzed the staff about the time it was taking we were advised there was only one chef on !

I completely agree with other reviewers that the portion sizes are on the small side and it is the first time every I have had a set meal and seen it all polished off and felt more was required.

The food was cooked ok but clearly not by a chef with any form of Chinese training as it was very very bland and tasteless and no sign of any soy sauce on the tables to season it up a bit.

This place has clearly has missed the point and as it not owned by a Chinese family cannot be classed as a Chinese Restaurant.

Went to this restaurant on Saturday 21/9/13.
I found the place beautifully decorated and the table layout just immaculate.
The menue is extensive which includes some indian and thia cuisine.
The spare ribs and spring rolls I had for starters were perfect.
The main couse was chicken thia curry with vegetables which was excellent.
The restaurant is on the top floor of a building overlooking the bay,the access is via stairs and a lifit from ground floor,once there you could enjoy the views,the friendly service and freshly cooked oriental food.

We had the set menu for two people and a won ton soup. The food was delicious especially the soups which were full of flavour. The service was second to none, they always topped up the wine, put the air conditioning on when we asked and opened the door for us. Excellent night out and good attention to detail by all the staff. Would highly recommend this for something different whilst staying in cyprus!

We have been to this restaurant on many occasions over the past two holidays to coral bay and this years visits were by far the best.
Food is out if this world, service is fabulous and very attentive.
Lovely 1st floor restaurant overlooking the coral bay main strip. Definately worth a visit if you like your Chinese food. A set meal is approximately 16euros per person.

I'm really baffled by the positive reviews and in complete agreement with the less complimentary ones. We were really looking forward to our meal here and it got off to a good start with a warm welcome in a lovely setting. Unfortunately, that's that last positive thing I can say.

The food was bland and distinctly lacking 'something' - flavour, probably! The portions were tiny and all of the food was served lukewarm. Definitely not value for money.

I wouldn't return. Shame as I think they are the only Chinese restaurant in that area.
