一次自己去一次跟朋友去,菜的味道真心太走样了(不管是中式、欧式或者美式中餐,都没吃到过这种味道),有些菜做的更像是汤。而且最悲惨的是份量极少,米饭也要付费。如果不是想吃中餐快崩溃了,没必要去,因为是镇里唯一一家(以色列边会比较多的选择)。强制的10% 服务费。I am from china and this is probably the "weirdest" taste Chinese food I have ever had (compared to authentic Chinese, European or American Chinese food). Some dishes look more like a soup. The most unfortunate is the portion - it is really small and the rice comes with extra price. Unless you are desperate for some Chinese. Unfortunately... More

The negative review opposite is quite surprising and does not reflect our experience. Although it was our first visit, there were other customers who had obviously been before and were commenting to the waitress about how nice the food was as per their previous visits. It was a fairly chilly evening for late November in Aqaba, so we ate inside... More

Ignore the dubious review below it doesn't reflect this restaurant. Arrived about 8pm on a Saturday night. As with the other bars and restaurants in the area, surprisingly quiet. We were warmly greeted and asked for the wine menu. None of the red wine was available but I was presented with 3 bottles of South African wine and chose the... More

Nice , relaxing atmosphere with great service . We went for some drink and snacks , enjoyed the breeze from the terrace . No matter you plan to have a proper meal or just sit down and have some Chinese tea or beer , this is a good place to go .
