If you're looking for anything resembling authentic Chinese food steer clear. In fact, if you're simply looking for food that tastes good, steer clear. It's a shame because they've got a great atmosphere with a good view of downtown Kigali but I'd limit my consumption...More

Chinese food is one of our favorites and the food is quite good. However, the prices are somewhat higher and the service was just average. I am really between a 3 and 4 rating for this restaurant.

Been to this place for last 3 years food and services are excellent; whenever you think eating Chinese food this is the place to be. Keep it up.

A basic menu with most of the same things that you see in any basic Chinese restaurant in the west. Garlic beef, sweet and sour pork etc. The service is quite good and quick. The portions are large. And the most important is that you...More

The staff here were very welcoming and attentive. When the food came we were delighted at the quality as Asian food in Africa can quite often miss the mark.
