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.

There weren’t many options for Monday night dinner so that is why we ate there. However, we were surprised at how good our meals were and the service was excellent. The decor was typical Asian with plastic tables and chairs and a great view out...to sea. Very pleasant sitting outside in the evening and even with our small helpings there was enough left over for me for breakfast.More

Just a perfect spot. Food is devine. Staff are great. Atmosphere is awesome. Variety of food on the menu. Always lots of locals. You go there enough you start to feel like a local yourself. Has to visited.

No fish available despite the menu so we selected garlic prawns with rice. Couldn’t detect any garlic but nevertheless, the meal arrived promptly, there was ample, staff were friendly and courteous and we enjoyed it.

Dining options on Christmas Island are limited and while this place has good reviews it was expensive and only ok. There were 5 of us dining and it was expensive. The spring rolls were great, but we didn’t receive what we ordered (didn’t tell the...staff - just decided to go with what they delivered) and all dishes came out at different times. Overall the food was OK but nothing to write home about.More

We ate there several times during our week on the island. Cheerful friendly staff, lunch was bit limited in scope but OK, evening meal menu is much more extensive and really good - excellent authentic tasty Chinese home cooking.

This restaurant has a very large outdoor seating area from which you can enjoy the view at sunset - see photos. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good and the servings ample (for Christmas Island). My only complaint was the flies that...would not leave so I had to keep waving my hand over the food - which was very annoying. I would recommend arriving early or making a booking because it was quite busy.More

Maybe we shouldn't have taken such a large group to this restaurant on a Saturday night. They were busy so the food wasn't quite up to the standard I'd previously enjoyed. Even so, the food was good and the service reasonable considering the number of...people in the restaurant.More

Our tour driver advised that it was the best restaurant on the island, and he wasn’t far wrong. On our first visit, 2 dishes were great, the third a bit ordinary. It was what we ordered so we cannot complain, but we didn’t enjoy it....Went back the next night and loved every dish. So much so that I ordered another dish, not that we were hungry, but because it was so delicious. The ladies there are very friendly and the service is very good. Dishes come out quickly and are hot, straight out of the pans. My second favourite restaurant, and we are going back for a third time tomorrow before we fly out. Dishes we loved include chicken & sweet corn soup, spring rolls, satay beef, sweet & sour pork, beef with ginger. If you visit Christmas Island, you simply must try this restaurantMore

Went here for lunch. Restaurant has views over settlement towards Flying Fish Cove with a lovely breeze on the verandah. Lunch menu was essentially variations of authentic Chinese noodles. Portions are large, eg. we ordered the small, but was too much for one person. We...ordered the Char Kuay Teow (a favourite) and the sweet & sour pork rice (very 1970's western dish). Prices are good value with small dishes between $14-$17 each. Had a delicious fresh mango and crushed ice smoothie for $9. They are supposedly open Thursday-Tuesday 10am-1.30pm (& dinner 5pm-8.30pm), but came by 1pm on Friday (in the torrential rain) and they were already closed.More

I’m coeliac and I ate a number of dishes there, off the top of my head; special fried rice, beef and black bean, garlic chicken. Just be very clear with what you need as the language can be a barrier.
