Although it doesn't really look modern and stylish, rather like 80s style restaurant, the food is surprisingly tasty. The portions are very big (we had to take half of our food to take away) it is clean and the service is just great - professional,...helpful and kind. Prices are also ok, not too expensive. Would definitely come back.More

Great place for lunch in the busy center of Port Louis. Not a lot of decent restaurants in the center of the city and we found this great oasis of calm, cool (air-con) and clean place! Food was good and service friendly!

I have known Restaurant Lai Min ever since my early childhood. I have lost count of the number of times I went there with my family to celebrate birthdays, wedding anniversaries, etc. Found in the heart of the Chinatown in Port Louis, it has been...and remains one of the favorite Chinese restaurant in the city . One may have easy meals like fried noodles , fried rice and bol renverse {also known as magic bowl} but for a true and authentic Cantonese cuisine it is better to book at least a few days in advance and bring along friends and families as some food cannot be cooked in a few minutes unless it has been frozen and reheated!More

Worth a visit. Reasonable priced menu with a good selection of dishes. I can recommend duck and ginger with plain rice and other half had min frites - fried noodles both dishes very good for a quick bite of lunch.

For my first time at this well known Chinese Restaurant in Port-Louis, I was simply delighted to be quickly served. The setting is cozy and the food is good!

During a day trip to Port Louis we found that little restaurant spontaneous. We expected not that much we got. Food was enough and very delicious. The people in the restaurant were friendly. We got a chair for our little child. Toilets are comfortable clean.

Read so many good reviews about this place but finally I was more than deceived... basic tasteless Chinese food and place looks dull and old... and it was quite expensive... for sure, I'll not go there on my next trip...
