Had a decent Chinese meal here. The best dish by far was the shredded pork with fresh chili and basil (although the basil seemed more like cilantro to me but I like both so can't complain). The fried shrimp appetizer was also quite good. The egg rolls fresh but somewhat greasy. The mapo tofu was not that great - would pass on that.

Had a wonderful dinner here, every plate tasted completely different! Large portions and tasty, but the prices are quite high for Arusha, some local food options are much much cheaper.

The veggie spring rolls were the best! I was quite surprised that the food was this great! Love the atmosphere,attentive service affordable price. Nice size portions, I'm very greedy and I could not finish my broc and garlic and rice.

The restaurant has great Chinese food at affordable prices. It is well off the beaten path - right next to the Arusha Gymkhana; not easily accessible by public transport. International guests should know that they don't take any credit cards; only cash. International currencies e.g. Ksh, USD, Euro and others exchanged at the rate the owners decide.
