I was recommended by a friend to try this restaurant and am very satisfied with the food and service. Heard they have the best pizza in town and it's quite good actually. When I went there the restaurant is full and a few people waiting outside. Nice atmosphere with a guitarist singing. Will try again when I visit Xiamen next... More

The only thing which did not... More

After several months of absence from Xiamen i returned to my favorite restaurant but unfortunately i no longer found the previous owner and staff. the service is very rude and impolite and sad faces from all workers. The food quality and presentation are fast food standard. For sure my last time in there.
