Have eaten here twice during our stay in Capetown. Have ordered the live lobster and it was very good but also very expensive too. Otherwise the cold chicken was not very good and overall slightly disappointing....

Glad to know that we were able to eat Chinese cuisine at South Africa. Best thing was that the food wasn't tok salty and it taste delicious! Highly recommended!

Mr. Chan is a Chinese restaurant tucked away on the first floor. At first glance it seems to be a bit rough and ready, but the food is very authentic, good, and coupled with great service. definitely recommended for those who desire authentic Chinese cuisine.

Simple menu. Dishes taste homemade. Portion sizes are reasonable. Plate of beef costs around R80. Rice about 25. Flavours are nice. Restaurant is clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy about the food or the place. Great for a simple, delicious Chinese meal at a good price.

Do not know why but lost quality of food and service (even if with a smile). It was much better when it was situated in the previous location and run by the ladies. I can understand why was empty at 1pm. very bad to return

We bought take always from Me Chan yesterday. The sliced beef was dry and tasteless. The pork sweet and sour was tasteless. The rice was stodgy. This was without a doubt the worst meal I have ever eaten. Avoid Mr Chan in Sea Point -...More
