Not the most spoke about Chinese restaurant in the area, but certainly a place I would recommend for anyone who enjoys or would like to try authentic Chinese food. With friendly service and an added touch as the owner/chef and his brother prepare authentic Chinese...More

What a find in Durban, known for its less than spectacular gastronomic experiences. This little hole in the wall is a wonderful addition to Durban's restaurant scene. It has clean flavours and uses no MSG. Very authentic. The menu does not have a huge range...More
