Food was tasty, service was shocking! Waitress was down right rude, forgetting half our meals and bringing them sporadically, complaining to the manager yielded no help or assistance and not even a basic apology. Would not recommend this place to anyone based on service alone!

I have eaten at Lai Lai Garden a couple of times. This is an authentic Chinese restaurant serving traditional food. All the dishes were well prepared, delicious and very well priced. Under R200 per head including drinks. Great service. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is always a favourite when visiting Monte Casino. Prices are good and the food is fresh and tasty. The service is what can be expected from a Chinese restaurant (don't expect all the food at once), but the emphasis is on the food....More
