The best Chinese in Port Vila but probably not the best you will ever have. They do a reasonable job given it must be hard to keep all the specialist ingredients in stock but some of the food seems a bit improvised. Overall OK, not too sure about the harbour view, we were there at night and our expectations of... More

We have been going for years and this place feels like home. The owner May li is very dedicated to her restaurant and her customers and knows how to welcome and greet people. This can be seen by the popularity of the restaurant, if you do not book on a Friday night, there is a little chance you can eat... More

I go there quite often and ave never been disappointed. Great food, low prices, nice staff and good views. Also air conditioned. The best Chinese restaurant in town. Ask for the combination soup!

since this establishment has changed hands, it has lost not only its charm, but the food is nowhere near as good as what it was, or as good as neighbouring eating houses. The prices also have gone through the roof. We certainly won't be back.

Great view out across the harbour. Stunning. The maitre D was very welcoming. Extensive menu of Chinese dishes. We enjoyed spring rolls (small, size of a little finger), beef with broccoli (tasty and well cooked broccoli), calamari squid and duck Chow mein. The noodles were wonderfully crispy with Chow mein sauce. Yummy. The Ni Van waiting staff were silent assassins,... More

Consistently good and packed on weekend nights. Seafood is good (but had a couple of disappointments) and all at a good (not cheap) price. Parking can be a challenge.

This is a really relaxed and great place to chill out at any time. You can just sit back relax and take your time and enjoy the view and great food.
