The food was tasty and pretty comparable to back on NZ. My sweet and sour pork had a fair amount of cucumber and carrot - compared to the meat - but that was okay. Fried rice was nicely done - not much egg though :)

Nice food, good value. Only thing was that although it is supposed to be a non-smoking restaurant - people in rooms off the main restaurant were smoking and walking through the restaurant. Recommend getting takeaways!

the food is awesome, the Tongan staff just kinda look at you stupid when you order, they obviously don't understand english. Carpets need a clean. Better than any local food for sure.

Gallilee has a standard chinese menu and is priced around US$10/head for a main, extra for rice etc. Friendly owners and a local following - well known for its large portions. Will go again.

Living in Tonga for 2 years, I frequented this restaurant at least 4 times a week! It is inexpensive and has a great atmosphere, as it is family run by a group of Chinese people from Guangzhou.
