This was probably the only Chinese/Asian restaurant in Douala. Pretty good selection of seafood dishes and typical Chinese/Japanese fare. They have a lunch buffet during the week.

As this restaurant is, virtually speaking, next door to our place, we visit quite often for dinner. In spite that many expats do not like it, we consider this restaurant quite acceptable. Of cause, the sushi is highly overpriced, but the atmosphere seems like compensates this shortcoming. And fried fish skin is very nice

Food was okay lacking in variety. I went there much as a kid and its lost its allure. No major improvements just bland. They're not doing much to wow anyone or the ppl r complacent. Either way we have no choices

We've been to the this restaurant twice--once as a family, the other time with a group of business associates. Consistently good food and friendly service. The menu is somewhat limited, but what's there is well prepared. We particularly liked the tempura fried shrimp--excellent. The sushi is good, somewhat limited in choices, but given that it's the only sushi we've found... More
