We went there with friends from time to time, the food is great, service quick, price reasonable. Sometimes when we didn't want to cook at home, we went there,too. Specially recommend seafood hotpot, it is really delicious!!! But only when they got seafood from Mozambique once or twice a month, so ask before you go.

I was craving some western style Chinese food and Noble China fixed my cravings with their Sweet and Sour Chicken. I would not say it was the most authentic Chinese food I've had,but it was good and I enjoyed my meal. I also had their steamed dumplings and they weren't bad either,one of my dumplings had a chewy piece of... More

As Chinese food goes, not to bad and good to see the Chinese eating here, always a good recommendation. The style of cooking is definitely different to something you would get in the UK and the menu items differ significantly. That said, the food was very nice and the portions huge. Go easy on the rice! Loved the prawns on... More

Your trusty Chinese take out. We frequent Noble a lot, the food is great and reasonably priced. Our faves; Fried rice, sesame chicken (a winner), Chinese vegetables (bok choy- so yummy), sizzling prawn, sizzling beef, garlic beans, sizzling eggplant, fried dumplings and our new (and surprising favorite), ginger crab! My only complaint is withe the vegetarian spring rolls, I find... More

Fairly clean. The food is okay, but the servers have difficulty understanding things sometime. It seems they know their small set of job duties, but if you ask anything outside of what normally do, it will get lost in translation.

Another restaurant that falls into the average class as most restaurants in Lilongwe.The food was better than the service which was slow and the waiters were inexperienced.

This place has decent food, but there aren't many good vegetarian options. This is a shame because there are so many beautiful vegetables grown in Malawi. They have a mixed veggie dish which is actually mostly cabbage with a few thin carrot slices and a couple potato wedges and the some spicy green beans, which are tasty. I wish they... More
