Thank you for taking the time to share with the world your marvelous dining experience in Sen Lin, our Asian restaurant, where you enjoyed the best “soft shell crab and tuna tartar”, two exquisite dishes that are a success from our menu.

On behalf the head chef and our entire Sen Lin staff, we look forward to seeing you soon on your next visit to the beautiful beaches of Riviera Maya and pampering you yet again with more incredible dining experiences. Until then, we wish you an excellent Autumn season in Charleston, South Carlina.

This restaurant is the best restaurant in the Grand Velas resort by far. The atmosphere is "zen" and beautiful and the food is absolutely delicious. This is our second time visiting the resort, our first was in January of 2017, and this restaurant was our favorite then too. They changed chefs recently but the food is just as good, if not better than before. This chef uses many different spices in his cooking, some of them even being cardamom and garam masala. Really just a delicious mix of flavors. My two daughters really love the food here too. Our kids are adventurous eaters and know good food because we are used to eating good food being from Chicago. Everything is extremely fresh and creative. Deserts were delicious too. Of course service was top notch too! It is Grand Velas after all! Service is the best!

If you find yourself staying at the spectacular Grand Velas hotel in the Riviera Maya, let me suggest you dine at Sen Lin. This restaurant stands above the crowd in a location where the food is as exceptional as the service. With that said I would rank this Chinese restaurant among my top three in the world. The company that Sen Lin keeps is on par with China Tang at the Dorchester Hotel in London and Mr. Chow in NYC.

Exceptional and unique Asian fusion. Diverse creations with bright threads of authenticity throughout every dish. Even the deserts, often a weakness of the finest Asian inspired establishments, were outstanding.
