A fellow traveller recommended this restaurant. Food was good, slightly above average, even if restaurant itself is a bit strange and lacks ambience. Worth a visit.

Not easy to find as not on most maps and street has no name but it is located half way between port & market, on the beach side of the road, looks like a coat of paint would not go amiss and interior mainly tiled (floor & walls), but the menu is good and the prices very competitive. Unfortunately Mud... More

Santo Chinese Restaurant closed earlier this year after many years in Santo Town. That is too bad, because they were the best restaurant in town at the time. The food varied from delicious to atrocious, depending on what you ordered, but the service was consistently excellent. They are missed.

We always plan to have at least one dinner at Santo Chinese. We often find ourselves nearby at lunchtime. Genuine Chinese cuisine at very reasonable prices with great, personal service. Recommended.

We had lunch at this restaurant. We were ushered into a private room and the door closed to keep the aircon cooling. It seemed a little odd but the service was excellent, food quite good and it is quite well priced. Good for a cheap feed!

Per previous reviewer, we really didn't know what to expect when you first sight the place from the street, however when you first walk inside you are pleasantly surprised by the clean quaint ambience and friendly manager. So much wonderful food to choose from, however, we went for some share dishes; the chicken, beef and the best dish of all... More
