The prices are very reasonable but the food is extremely basic and the service was poor (our starters were not served together and the same with the main course so our food got cold whilst we waited for the party to be served).

We received a brochure from one of they staffs outside of the restaurant, and decided to give it a try on the next day. We are glad that we did it! This is not a very big and fancy restaurant, but they serve authentic and great Chinese food. The Chinese lady boss is very friendly and gave us good recommendations.... More

This is a great place to eat, but if you want a seat outside overlooking the marina then it's best to book in advance or eat before 8pm. There is a huge menu to choose from and food tastes really good. Arrive hungry coz the portions are pretty big. We both had a starter and a main meal and shared... More

Portions are of a very generous size- highly recommend the prawns on toast and the chicken vermicelli noodles. Lucy also makes a very tasty... More

The restaurant is basic and compared to other Chinese restaurants in Vilamoura is like the very poor cousin. We seat inside of the restaurant which is like a cafe/bar you would find in a train station. The food was serviced very quickly and was of below average quality. The after taste was of grease! would not return and would not... More

This is a little upstairs restaurant by the marina, with very welcoming staff, and so obliging. The lady was so helpful, we like to order a few things and share, and always include Singapore vermacelli, and the lady said this was a prawn dish, personally I don't like prawns, and I usually pick them out so she suggested she make...
