This was the worst Chinese food I’ve had in Europe. I would have given it one star however my husband liked the ribs. The dumplings were clearly frozen dumplings, the food was tasteless and not authentic. Rice was oily and lacking flavor. Even the kids...More

Great Chinese, we visited twice and both times found the food fantastic. On certain nights they do a starter and buffet for a fixed price- very good value! May be worth booking a table as they get very busy.

I think you better call them because they may deliver in some days or maybe there is a budget which needs to be spent to deliver to Mellieha.

With over 20 years experience, Shaukiwan has built a solid reputation and loyal clientele. Being one of Malta's best Chinese restaurants, we are proud with our simple attitude to serve our customers with good food, and the best possible service and value for money.Shaukiwan serves plenty of mouth watering dishes and also offers buffet for only € 12.85 per person. We do have a warm welcoming oriental atmosphere. One of our highlights is that we have an open kitchen, and free parking is available just under the restaurant.
