Good Classic Chinese food, and ok service. But had to wait almost 90 mins for starters to arrive and then so long for main too.. Didnt have any fresh Juices available on the day and we opt for water!

I never fail to visit this place when I'm in the country. It is always one of the top things in my list to tick off during every visit to Sri Lanka. Absolutely delicious Chinese/Malaysian food and the best I've ever had. My fav is their Nasi Goreng. A must to go if you're visiting Colombo.

This place gave me very first restaurant experience in 2002 Since then I have visited probably 100+ times Always their menu would make you feel satisfied Price range is affordable compared to many other Chinese restaurants in Colombo. Their welcome and service is always good Sometimes they could delay you with providing food in time And don't ever order many... More

We bought take away for dinner from this restaurant since it was next door to our apartment. Food tasted okay but not much flavour. Real drama happened after few hours I had my food. my body started to weaken and could not get up few days! Severe diarrhea and temperature! I will never forget this experience.

On the 31st of december we ordered food to be delivered to Ratmalana around 7pm. I was informed that it would take 1 hour which i thought was too long but agreed anyway as i thought it was a busy day being a saturday. However the food got to our place (just 10mins away) at 9pm and that too after... More

I gave this an average instead of poor because Chinese food in Sri Lanka tends to be salty and greasy in general...Not to my liking at all...

Food was very tasty....I guess knowing the menu makes it easier to order. Loved the Hot Butter Cuttle fish and also Hot butter mushrooms, Pepper Chicken and Lemon Chicken and Garlic Prawns. Staff are really friendly...

We visited their branch at rajagiriya for lunch. Having fond memories, we were expecting great food. Unfortunately we were left disappointed from the beginning. The service took far too long, the food was bland, the rice seem to be under cooked and the prawn dish we ordered had only a handful of prawns. Sad to say, after many years of... More

Located close to the Dutch hospital. Staff is friendly but they need little professional touch. Restaurant looks clean. They give big portions of food, but we found them little spicy. Not expensive.
