After a stroll through down town Dar we decided it was time for Chinese food. We entered the restaurant and a nice English speaking waiter brought us to out table, gave us the menu and took our order: sizzling prawns and beef hot pot. When our food arrived, we realized that we would never be able to eat all of... More

We found this restaurant by searching at internet. We came a bit early for dining it open at 18 PM. It serves variety of Chinese food, chicken, beef, fishes and seafood. Also nodle, rice and fride rice. The food taste was good. The ambience was nice.

I choose to eat there because it is located at walking distance of the Tanzanite Hotel were I stayed and also because I love Chinese food but this was a total disappointment. It was 1p.m. on a Sunday and when I entered the place there were only 3 Asian guests, all busy on Internet with their mobile telephones. A woman... More

The first time we went to this restaurant was with a party of 15 people. The service was quick and the food was really good. We have been there a number of times after that, especially when we couldn't be bothered to wait a while. The service has never failed us yet! The chicken and sweetcorn soup is great, as... More

We are regulars in the place because we cannot find better tasting Chinese food in Dar es Salaam. The service is just ok, while the ambiance is casual. Smoking is allowed inside the restaurant.

Food is very fine, I liked almost all the dishes and good price too. Lack of class and waiter's service until the owner came to our table and extended a helping hand lol They also sell fresh bread? at the counter but it looed like one of local bread so I did not buy.

Go with people who know what to order and your experience levels up like four times. The lamb rack, the garlic prawns, sweet and sour beef, any veg dish, fresh moon cakes (at the right time of year). I'm usually the only mzungu in this place full of Chinese customers and that is an excellent sign. This place is so... More
