They provide a quick turn around and the food hit the spot. The dishes seem a little 'samey' in taste. Plenty of rice accompanies each dish so you don't come away feeling hungry.

We passed many Asian restaurants and take out, and none that we were willing to try except Delightful restaurant. The place was decorated in traditional style, clean, and service was good. The owner was friendly and seeing that we were Asians from NJ, he recommended dishes for us. The food was surprisingly good given their limited ingredient supply.

It seemed like a lot of restaurants in Antigua had very similar, somewhat bland, menus, at higher prices. This restaurant was a great break from that. Good Chinese food, generous portions, nice prices -- and A/C was a plus, too!

This restaurant is located on the second floor, it is air conditioned and clean. The staff... More

They make some strange stuff here, but it's Antigua not China. There is an A/C dining room. The wonton soup is pretty good but they over fill it with dumplings which could be a meal. Need Chinese food, this place is safe tell them if you want something not on the menu and they will make it.
