Nice meal here overlooking the beach. Staff were very attentive, food was served quickly and in massive portions. Slightly milder dishes than we are used to, but that's probably to cater for more tourists. But still very tasty. Very reasonably priced.

We popped in to collect a small takeaway for two... spareribs, quarter duck with pancakes and chicken chow mein... Well, it was not small... there were plenty of ribs, but they lacked spice, the duck was fine but huge, far too much for the 7 homemade pancakes, however the chow mein was totally lacking in flavour and chicken... the homemade...

Been here several times and never disappointed. Great service and great food. I went for The King Prawn in Jumbo sauce, boiled rice. Partner chose Chicken in garlic sauce and chips (bad boy). Diet Coke and half bottle of Vino Sol. How much? €28! That was with prawn crackers and Chinese liqueur. Great value and will never fail to return.

Prices good. Service good. Staff excellent but food served and then eaten lacked the 'yummy' factor. We both had chicken sweet corn soup then chicken chow mein and beef and mushroom with fried rice. All the food disappointed. We got free prawn crackers with a sweet sauce. Guess what? Prawn crackers did not taste of prawns and were tasteless. We... More

Went as a family group, and all being lovers of Chinese food we were looking forward to it. We weren't disappointed. The food was outstanding, and some of the dishes were better than we have had before. The salt and pepper chicken and ribs to start are excellent, as was the spring rolls and hot and sour soup. The shredded... More

Went there after reading the TA reviews. Very poor experience. Unedible spare ribs, dry duck, and bland curry. The ribs were taken off the bill. Won't be going back.

We'd eaten here on a previous holiday and we'd remembered it because the food had been so good. So we had it earmarked for several evenings out during this holiday. But unfortunately this time around it was fairly average. A marked change since last time. So much so that we decided not to go back again.

Probably the worst attempt at chinese dishes that i have had the misfortune to experience in the last 10 years and I can speak from the standpoint of living in the FarEast .Staff are discourteous and really quite unhelpful. Would not recomment this restaurant to readers.

Good place to eat. The dishes listed were open to customisation to your own preference. Polite staff, good hot food and a cracking location. Give it a go.
