“Massive amounts of cheap Chinese food.”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 January 2017

I thought the food was pretty decent, but I love cheap, greasy Chinese food (my Mom did find lighter, tasty shrimp dishes, though!). My family went here 3 or 4 times, usually hitting it up every time we were back in Roseau. Since it was off season, we couldn't really ever find anything else open. Even if something else had been, I have a feeling we would have just kept coming back anyway. Yeah sure, they never seemed terribly excited to see us, and the meat had a lot of bones, but every other place we seemed to eat at had equally boney food. I struggled to really find fish fillets, and never got any boneless chicken anywhere on the island.

A young lady served us each time, and she was super sweet each time. They moved the chairs around once they noticed we liked sitting outside, so that we could all fit at one table. Makes for good people watching on the street below.

A few times we just came in for beer to take back to our hotel. They didn't mind. We also stopped in for takeaway, this was much faster than sitting down to order.

So, not the best food I've ever had, but as non picky eaters, we stilled gorged each time and loved it. I wouldn't go there on a date, but for beer and cheap food, yes please. You do have to keep getting up to request your next round of drinks. We didn't mind.

Side note: I read this review back to my brother, who says he thought the food was amazing, so there you have it.

Cheap Chinese food and a lot of it.

We visited every other nearby restaurant that was open (this is the offseason), so we figured we would try this place. I wouldn't go back, wouldn't recommend it...but they gave us a lot of food at about 1/3 of the price of the other places.

The photo is what we didn't eat because we were already full.

A shop assistant recommended Chinatown, I would not.
It is interesting to sit on the terrace watching the world go by beneath you and it is very cheap
I had a "hot" chicken and the flavour was really good, however the "chicken" consisted primarily of skin, fat and bone. Yes it was cheap but I would rather have paid more for meat instead of scraps
Worth noting that they do not take credit cards

The food here was ok, but extremely overpriced ($2.50 a shrimp in the middle of the Caribbean, come on). The wait and kitchen staff were very slow. And I have never had such rude service in my life. I seriously started to wonder if the operation was some kind of "Front" as we were the only customers at dinner time and I got the distinct feeling we weren't wanted. Maybe they just hated Americans. Of course, the boys from Beijing were building a "good will" Soccer Stadium for the locals. Perhaps my family and I muddied the message.
