If you are on holiday or even a local visiting Bugibba looking for Chinese food this is the place to be. Ask for the buffett list of food mark any item you want to eat and you`ll get everything you ask for . Great place.

After getting lost because app pinpoint wasn't where the restaurant was we then found it by the main square. Food was all freshly cooked and was very nice. Prices are very reasonable. Worth a trip if you fancy a Chinese.
