The food was so good, quality Chinese food, which can be difficult to find sometimes in Arusha, especially for a fair price. I especially recommend the crispy tofu, and the black bean noddles! Loved that they had vegetarian options and especially tofu, was quite difficult...to find vege/vegan proteins in Tanzania, so really appreciated this opportunity. Very friendly staff, and lovely environment, really calming and cute for dinner dates! Will definitely be going again when I return! :)More

When I see such a consistently high rating, I do tend to visit and look for something not quite perfect! However I found the food super and can only recommend this restaurant

As vegetarians there were plenty of choices. I had a delicious combo of vegetables, tofu, beansauce and noodles. You could pick a level of spicyness, mild-medium-spicy, so you can customize your dish. Dorice, our waitress, provided great service. On top of that, there no long...waiting times.More

My fiancé and I had a late Monday dinner at Chinese whispers and we loved it. I ordered crispy tofu (off of the starters menu) and my fiancé had cashew chicken and vegetable fried rice. Robson was our waiter and he was really helpful. My...fiancé hasn’t eaten Chinese food very much and Robson helped him to pick something he ended up loving. He was very attentive and we hope to see him again the next time we go.More

The decor and ambiance are great. We had fresh homemade tofu, house grown bean sprouts and good wine. Also, don't know which is tastier, the food or the owner!
