On a blustery wet night my wife and I got a takeaway from here. We were served straight away, the food came within 15 minutes and must say it was perfect. Top marks. Highly recommended and great value.

Came here for the first time with my family as a surprise birthday meal. Very reasonable prices and a wide range of food available. Environment is cosy for an evening dinner. Also parking is available which is a plus.

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.
