This restaurant never disappoints each year. It is always a must, even more than once most years in our two week stay. The food we have sampled (my favourite is "Special Chow Mein") spoils us when we come home to find one that gives us such tasty value for money meal. You even get free bottle of wine, just ask...

We go here every year as the food is outstanding, not this year!!! We arrived after 9 o'clock and there was lots of tables available, although it was busy. We asked a member of staff for a table and they said there was none? We told him that we counted at least 10 tables were sitting there free, but told... More

Does get busy but food is ok but not overly sparkling for us. Service is good and the place is very clean but we ate in far better places.

Visited on our recent holiday upon recommendation. This restaurant is not immediately obvious as it is on the second level of the shopping centre but it is certainly worth finding. The food is excellent and good portion sizes.

We were here for honeymoon and decided to try it out as it was the best rated Chinese in the local area when we looked on here. It was very nice, staff were very friendly, and didn't rush us to order, as it took us a while to choose from all the options available. As we were all inclusive, we... More

Wow, what a fantastic restaurant this is. Doesn't look up to much when you walk past but the food is epic. Best Chinese I've had while I've been on holiday. We had a €13 per head banquet for 3 (€39) which comes with a free bottle of wine (drinkable) we shared the meal between 2 adults and 2 kids and... More

This restaurant is hidden away in Porto Colon which isn't the best area of Tenerife and not one I would really go to. However, on reading reviews we got a taxi in and a taxi out once we had the meal. I have to say it was worth it. From the outside it looks a bit non descript and you... More
