“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

If you crave Asian food while visiting Cannes and its surroundings stop by "Le siècle d'or". For 16 euros you'll get classic Chinese dishes, a great assortment of fresh seafood and desserts. Although the hot dishes are good but not exceptional the raw seafood and sushi make up for the difference. The desserts display is delicious, fresh exotic fruits, cookies and ice creams. The service is very friendly and prompt. The decor opulent and similar to these huge restaurants you find in Asia. A great find at a great value.

“Five Stars”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Without any doubt this Chinese restaurant is the best value for money on the French Riviera. For less than 16 euros, the choice is amazing with oysters, sushi, prawns, as well as a wide selection of hot meals, from dim sum to duck! The food is fresh as the buffet is being replenished all the time as so many people eat here. No reservations are taken, just arrive early for a table.

“It's not all good, but you can pick the best stuff !”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

I am of Chinese origin, and I have been here twice. I am pretty picky about my food and some of the dishes are really very good. Super value for money at lunchtime. There is a limit of 3 oysters per customer, otherwise it's all you can eat.

For me the stand outs are the batter fried frogs legs and the sauted small shrimps. Very fresh, nicely cooked, and not at all greasy.

The selection of vegetables is poor but, to round off the meal there are lichees, and fresh melon so you will get enough vitamin C

Staff are friendly, place is always pretty packed

“Great value, great quality in surprising surroundings”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

We stumbled across this gem of a chinese restaurant whilst shopping. Although the restaurant is situated in a commercial area on the outskirts of Cannes, when you enter, the shops and stores give way to an atmospheric taste of the orient. The 'mini planetarium' domed ceiling only adds to the feeling of space! The price for lunch or dinner is fixed 10.80 and 15.80 euros respectively, and the quality is superb. If you are early enough, you can even have oysters, although you should respect the policy of only 3 per person. The selection of starter dishes and main courses is very good, with all food recharged as stocks dwindle! The puddings are typically fruit, ice cream and apple fritters. Air-conditioned, with the choice of sitting in the main restaurant area or in the semi alfresco extention, this restaurant is for those with an appetite larger than their pockets! Quality food matched by excellent service. It is also just a couple of minutes from A8 motorway (Mandelelieu exit), so convenient if you're coming from outside of Cannes.

“When you want just one meal a day, this is the place!”
Reviewed 15 May 2012

The best value is at lunch time. For 10.80 euros (May, 2012), you get an "all you can eat" Chinese buffet lunch with some western touches like frog legs, salad, French bread and good ice creams/sorbets. Being a popular place in France, it offers excellent quality and variety. From steamed dim sum to broccoli/black mushroom stir fried pork. Old time favorites like fried rice and noodle are present. Much better than most of its counterparts in the U.S. For lunch, it is best to arrive before noon or after one. The biggest challenge may be to find this place. Take the Mandelieu exit off the A9 tollroad. Go toward Cannes La Boca. It takes you into a large shopping center with roundabouts that take you between sections. Look for Darty and/or Ubaldi. It is right by the "Salon" Ubaldi store. Look for the large gold neon sign with red letters.
For free spenders and XL big eaters, dinners is just under 16 euros. Drinks are not included.
