Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The only Chinese restaurant in town. Food is generally good and prices are reasonable. Most customers order food to go and business is brisk. The restaurant itself is clean but lacks any atmosphere. I’ve never seen more than three tables in use at any given...time.More

Lovely sit down meal from set menu of €15 per person. Two courses plus coffee. We had our 7 month grandchild with us and he was treated like a VIP by the friendly, helpful staff. We had the restaurant to ourselves early in the evening....Great food and experience. Would recommend highly and will definitely be back.More

Great restaurant, great food and great staff. We just walked in off the street without booking and greeted by a very nice young man. We ordered the set menu very reasonably priced at €15 per person and the food was excellent and very plentiful and...the rest of the menu looked awesome leaving us wishing we could return to sample everything. No hesitation in recommending that anyone who likes Chinese food should make this a must on their travels.More

This place is very reasonable and had been recommended to us both to eat in and to take away. The crispy aromatic duck is already pulled off the bone and is very generous. The Thai green curry was great and had just the richer amount...of kick from the chilli. The beef in black bean sauce was outstanding and is made with large pieces of beef fillet. And lastly the chicken skewers are the best I have had. Highly recommended. Only thing that let it down was general saltiness.More

Order every couple of weeks from the golden coast. It is always hit and miss with the food from here. It is mostly good but there are other times where it is quite bad.

The food was good but the service was slow. We weren’t in a rush, except to get to the pub, so it wasn’t a huge issue for us.

If you want Chinese food, this is the only option in town. Serves what I call "Irish Chinese" food. Service is good and food is good to very good. Prices are reasonable. Restaurant is never busy with most tables empty but they get a lot...of take-out orders. Restaurant is open Mondays when most others are closed.More
