Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Please don’t go here. They serve shark fin soup. I’m sure they are not the only one that does but this is the restaurant that we visited and it was clearly on the menu

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.

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.

The restaurant has been recommended by some other friends and finally got the opportunity to test it. It is located in the centre of the capital and is one of the oldest in Chinatown. The service is great, the menu is very varied. Unlike most...restaurants, the sauces of the dishes are different, so sharing takes a new turn here. Try the squid, the preparation is terrific. Prices are good for the quality.More
