As a first time visitor here, I wasn't sure what to expect, the fact that the place was almost full , says it's worth a go, on sitting down we ordered an array of dim sums and a few other cooked orders, beef spring rolls, shrimp rolls, crab claws and black pepper ribs, all delicious, however the best was the...

my wife & i had lunch in this resto and we loved the siomai and the steamed fried rice. there are other sumptuous dishes and you could just order and pick up from their mobile carts carried around the resto by the servers. i would recommend that you try this when in cebu city, philippines.

My brother took us here for lunch. He explained that this used to be Ding Qua Qua , which we frequented when we were little. The original restaurant closed and moved to SM city and name was changed to Harbour City. Food is still very good! Brings back memories. Excellent service. Clean restaurant. Nice view of the water. It even... More

This has been my favorite Chinese restaurants in Cebu. I always get steamed rice, siomai and spring rolls. It's a great place for a quick snack or a full meal. Check out this place and enjoy!

It's one of our family's favorite restaurant but every time I visit the place....the service is getting worst. Their managers/supervisors are not fit to fulfill their job. Very disappointing

I like the dinsum dishes here. But I hope that their waiters are more attentive to their customers. I had to call for service multiple times before I get served.

While it's refreshing that they have improved the overall ambiance of the place, I still could not understand why the service is still lousy. There is no doubt that the food is great here - but that cannot make up for the frustration that you get. You literally have to wait for 35 minutes for a hot pot. Worse, the... More

This is the perfect place to go when craving for Chinese dishes. Even when I was still a kid, this is the place I call my 2nd kitchen home. I love their spicy steamed rice, sweet & sour pork, spring rolls, empress rolls & a whole lot more. I love this place & this is my comfort food.
