This is literally the only restaurant on Tuvalu and it does Chinese food. There is nothing wrong with the preparation or intentions of the cook and owner; the problem is really the availability of ingredients. As such the food is hardly better than what you would get if you would heat up a pack of instant noodles. That said, it... More

This was the second time I went to Tuvalu. This restaurant has recently reopened and the food selection is the best on the island. Good size portions, fresh fish and fresh vegetables. Very tasty Ming personally greeted us and the service was great. Highly recommend

Been to Funafuti five times and we always eat at 3 T's. Ming and his staff are very attentive and offer a great variety of tasty food. Eaten in a private room on several occasions which is appreciated for conversations with a group of associates. Not a lot of options in Funafuti, but this is the best!!

Meals were very good and fulfilling (average cost $6-7). Fish was always fresh and tasty. This is a very popular place among the locals and tourist. There is a big choice of appetizers ('honest' size), main meals and drinks. Strongly recommend.

Might even be the best place to eat on the island, as you get some kind of veggies, and quality fish and meats. Get a bottle of wine from across the road, and enjoy a banquet with some share plates with a couple of friends, served by Ming and his team. Super tasty, not sure I would have survived 2.5... More

I asked the locals about this place and was told that it has closed down. Instead I tried a place called Blue Ocean, also Chinese food, a little down the road from the Wamasiri lodge. Food was only ok but was still worth trying for something different from the hotel.

3T food was amazing! We dined in one of the small private rooms and were served an huge array of delicious food from duck to prawns. I've never had such lovely food and the service was great too.

Basic restaurant that serves tasty Chinese food. About a five minute walk from the center of Funafuti. The lady who is owner-cook is from Guangchou, China, has been there 8 years or so.
