The restaurant looks a bit strange from the outside but once you come inside it is ok. Plenty of staff and not long waiting time. Plenty of good food.

My local German friend recommended me this Seafood restaurant. One soup of the day, one vegetable one steam fish with rice and mango dessert. Fish Very fresh! Pork rib soup excellent! They had abalone and clams , all alive as well but I did not order, as already too much with the fish

Since we now live in Paranaque, it is seldom we go to Malate. Now we frequent Tao Yuan in RWM and for dinner sometimes you have to wait in line due to many customers. Very good food, and responsive waiters, clean place and wash room.

It's a normal chinese restaurant...it's not bad it's not the best. If you want chinese food with a good price you can eat here. Good quality service.

One family favourite for sure, been dining at this place for numerous time, always good food always consistent! The service is attentive and typical for a Chinese restaurant with the old guard watching the young! Great for lunch to late night meals as place is open beyond most restaurant operation hours! Save parking available right next door, which is huge... More

This Chinese restaurant specialises in seafood, they have loads of tanks full of fish, crabs etc and almost every dish on the menu is a fish dish. We had an amazing lunch here with loads of different dishes going round on our tabletop turntable. Bibs are a must for dealing with the lovely crab in various sauces ...
