For my first time at this well known Chinese Restaurant in Port-Louis, I was simply delighted to be quickly served. The setting is cozy and the food is good!

During a day trip to Port Louis we found that little restaurant spontaneous. We expected not that much we got. Food was enough and very delicious. The people in the restaurant were friendly. We got a chair for our little child. Toilets are comfortable clean.

Read so many good reviews about this place but finally I was more than deceived... basic tasteless Chinese food and place looks dull and old... and it was quite expensive... for sure, I'll not go there on my next trip...

One of the best fried noodle renditions of a Chinese classic! Friendly staff, exceptional food in a pretty ambience. A jewel of a restaurant tucked away in old Chinatown.
