We were a party of four on a Wednesday night so it was not very busy, the welcome and service was excellent as was the ambience, we ordered the banquet for four and I have to say that it was excellent, plenty of good food, could not fault it, one teeny wee criticism is that we would have preferred the crispy duck shredded, but that is our personal preference. We will DEFINITELY be back on our next visit to the island, excellent food and great value.

When I visited this restaurant I was part of a group of 25. We were there for the lunch. Staff was very attentive and polite. Everyone picked and chose from their vast variety of dishes which are very reasonably priced. There were some who chose a` la carte and others who took one of the set menus offered which turned out to be the best choice as they are quite abundant and the food is varied. Only minus was the dessert offered with the set menu...fried ice-cream... the portion of their fried ice-cream was a tot too tiny. To be fair, those who took the set menu and asked for a different dessert were allowed to chose from the dessert menu without any problem. All in all it was a fantastic lunch with a Chinese twist.

In my opinion this is the best chinese restaurant in Malta. I visit other restaurants just not to make life boring going always to the same Chinese restaurant.

After getting tired of the standard Italian/Mediterranean cuisine we decided to go out for Chinese food to change things up. Inspired by the high ratings on Trip Advisor we selected the Chinese Tavern close to the Virtu Ferry Terminal. We skipped appetizers and ordered the egg noodles with mixed sea food, Gong Pao chicken and duck with oyster garlic sauce in order to share and we were all vastly disappointed. The quantity was quite okay given the low price point but there was hardly any taste to any of the dishes. The Gong Pao was missing peanuts which are a standard addition to this recipe and the sea food in the egg noodles was difficult to locate. The duck dish was also strange as it contained fried duck pieces that were once crispy but were then drowned in the oyster sauce making them mushy. Whoever rated this place as the best Chinese on Malta or gave it four or even five stars had to be out of their mind. Certainly they have never partaken of really good Chinese food in Hong Kong, Singapore or the Chinatowns of San Francisco or New York. Stay with Blue Room in Valletta or Rickshaw in Attard if you want a decent Chinese meal on the island. We will never go back to the Chinese Tavern!

I can't quite remember how many times we visited this restaurant. However I do remember that every time we visited, we were always served with very good food and very good service. Will always go back for more.
