Had some shocking experience in Port Vila restaurant recently, my wife and I went to Harbour view restaurant, we had just over one kilo lobster, we both ate full and also some left over we took home for the dinner. Good food and services, recommend to anyone who like Chinese food.

We ordered a series of dishes which came out on a regular basis. The food was delicious, my brother and friend particularly liked the... More

I live in Vila and visited on my birthday last week with my wife and son. The staff was friendly, but as my main arrived, I discovered a dead beetle in the middle of my chicken (hidden under prawn crackers I'd already given my son to eat). I discreetly pointed it out to the staff and said nothing else about... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and it was a great disappointment. Went with kids. They ate but our meals just didn't turn up. We left after 90mins having not eaten!

The food here is excellent. We ate here 3 years ago and again this trip and it is consistently good. Service is very good too. Will go back again when next in Vila.

The food was so fresh and delicious. Although late at night the outside eating area was still lovely with a cool breeze. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Really good Chinese. Anything with beef is simply yum. Great local produce. Value for money. Terrific view. Same owner for years. Locals love it!

When we discussed going to a Chinese restaurant in Port Vila, I was skeptical (we live in Perth West Australia - where there are great Asian restaurants). Everything from arrival to departure was more than I expected. The food was outstanding, different to what we have had previously but very very good. The drinks list was reasonable, the wine was...
