The food is good and although we took the buffet, there was a great choice of good food. The place was packed and every... More

It was Wednesday, and although we did not know it’ it was “Buffet night” at Shaukiwan, but as we had had a large lunch we opted to go al-a-cart. To start, we ordered the, “Crab” & “Asparagus soup” and the “Won-ton soup” My “Crab” & “Asparagus soup” had been slightly mis-described, the liquid was “thin” and almost tasteless, the asparagus...

When we arrived we was told they was too busy and we couldn't eat in but when other people arrived whilst we was waiting for a takeaway they were given seats. We ordered pork curry and sweet and sour chicken. Sweet and sour chicken was just chicken in a vinegar sauce, practically inedible. The Pork curry was very chewy meat... More

Very good value for money.The buffet was very good.Service as well. Only regret is that we were not permitted to purchase a "take away" from the buffet especially since it was required for a disabled elderly person who does not have the privilege of being able to come to the restaurant for the buffet.Since her meal portion is limited she...

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.
