The views here are the standout. The food is not great Chinese - pretty traditional Western-style Chinese and not much of interest on the menu. Passable if you need a Chinese fix, but little more. Service was painfully slow. The wait staff appeared to be run off their feet, so maybe they were just short of staff the night we... More

I am sorry to say that this restaurant is really weak and disappointing. I expected something else because the place on the rooftop of Steigenberger Hotel is fine. I am talking about taste, quality and style of cooking. I normally do not comment here but this place should know this critic because it is a pity and they must improve.

There was plenty of chicken and vegetables and the sauce was quite tasty. I also ordered vegetable rice that was very good. The portions were HUGE so I ate it for two meals. I ordered delivery...

I asked for recommendation from the waiter and he suggested "Chili shrimps". It was a very nice plate of shrimps with mix of vegetables and chili sauce. I totally recommend this dish. I ordered a steamed rice plate beside the main course but it was so small, so I took three of them. Beside that I was craving for chicken... More

If the weather is not too cold it is possible to enjoy the wonderful view on the terrace. Otherwise the interior part is warm and the personnel very welcoming. Food is amazing, especially handmade noodles. Good balance between quality and price. Presentation good and service excellent!

It's a chance to try a different cuisine in Alexandria with a very unique view of the eastern harbor. They used to have a bigger menu but they have cut it down recently... I recommend the sea food salad with glass noodles, it's one of the best items on their menu and if you are not into sea food try... More
