Authentic Chinese cuisine. This place is frequented by notable locals and tourist particularly the Chinese. I know they have many delicious meals but we always order our favorite quick meals: ha kao, wanton noodles and spare ribs in tausi sauce. They also have live seafood for cooking. Upon arrival, they will serve you a plate of peanuts and a pot... More

When craving for Chinese cuisine, this restaurant never fails. If you are on a roll or want to impress somebody, ask the waitstaff to be taken to the live seafood display adjacent to the restaurant. The choices might not be that much but it is still a sight to look at. Steamed live fish whether its a grouper or the... More

This restaurant is the closest you can get to authentic-tasting Hong Kong-style cuisine in Cebu. Order anything - seafood, dimsum, noodles, etc - and it will definitely satisfy. Downside - the place is not that clean, interior is tacky (reminds me of restaurants in China ~. province) and cockroaches abound. But wary not, just close your eyes and savour the... More

Luy's never disappoints. I always make it a point to brings guests there, and Ive always earned great pats on the back for the effort. Thai lapu lapu remains crunchy on the outside and moist in the inside. A must-try for the newbies, and a must-repeat for the "againers." The lechon macau wasnt that well fried but it tasty I...

Food is authentically Chinese. Informal setting, inexpensive food, accessibility to all types of transportation, clean place. Their food price starts from about P100 for a noodle soup dish to expensive stuffs like Lauriat. So there's always something for everybody.

Cebu is filled with a lot of chinese restaurants but this place is a must go place when you are craving for hong kong style chinese food. You do have to make a reservation since the place gets packed.
