If you have other option then go for it, we tried thrice, but food was just okay. Staff were good but food was not up to the mark.

Tried this place with some friends because we were home sick for seafood (lol). It turned out great, elegant with class. Friendly service, nice buffet to choose and an inviting feel to its decor. This is diffidently a place to eat in Salalah either for a date with your wife, family, children etc. it's great.

I have eaten here once and it was just ok. Like a lot of so-called Chinese restaurants, it is at best an Indian take on Chinese dishes, with lots of glop to thicken the dishes. Probably MSG to keep the veggies crunchy. Decor is tacky "Chinese" and a little dated now.

Once again a Chinese restaurant in name only. No Chinese staff and no authentic Chinese dishes. Food cobbled together by Indian staff. Orders were not taken properly and dishes were nothing like what was ordered.

we had steam rice with an additional 3 dishes of vegetables, chicken and prawns. we paid only about 8OR for a family of 5. we were disappointed that the weren't any fish dishes available on that day. how can a city located by the sea not serve fish? apart from that the food we ordered was delicious.

I wouldn't rave about this place, but equally it is OK. I wish tripadvisor had a simple 'good' rating as 'average' seems too harsh, but I wouldn't go so far as to say 'very good'. Anyway, this restaurant has a kind of weird decor with very high backed booths and walls so each little booth is private (I guess they... More
