“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Chinese food in Cuba? When my husband wanted to go to this restaurant, I laughed at him. I am not fan of Chinese food. But because of the positive reviews here, and my husband's desire for Chinese food there, I decided to go and give it a try. For me, it was one of the best Chinese restaurant I had ever been. The food was better than the ones in Toronto.
The service was excellent. The prices were reasonably cheap for such a great food and excellent service.

I strongly recommend this restaurant.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

Who would have though Chinese food in Varadero! Real Chinese food! It was as good as what you get in Canada. I strongly recommend you get the beef steamboat! The chicken and rice dish was excellent as well. Also liked the chicken chow mein.

“Chinese food with Cubano flavour.”

Take a break from your regular hotel food and drop by here for some North American style Chinese food; good and very reasonably priced.
