My wife and I live in Barcelona and every now and then crave Chinese food. This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The wontons were light, the spicy fried rice was provocative and their version of sweet and sour pork was flavorful and crunchy. The elderly server who waited on us was very attentive and amusing. And it was inexpensive. We will definitely return when the craving comes.

Unfortunately, my sister and I did not dine at another Chinese restaurant while we were in Barcelona so we have no others to compare San Hao to. The food was 6.5 out of 10 (it would have been a 7 if the fried rice was not so greasy) and the service was excellent.

Compared to Chinese restaurants back home in England, it was a bit more expensive, the portions were smaller and the food tasted average but as I'm not the biggest fan of the Spanish food in Barcelona, it was better than any meal that I had elsewhere.

We tried this restaurant as noted as the best one from Tripadvisor. For us, it should not be quoted as excellent. Compare to what we tried in New York, Paris, San francisco, bangkok, etc... Not so good

Firstly, the map point on the Trip advisor app was well off, and by around three blocks, and but persevere to find this place. As all the other reviews say, lovely owner. Well deserved rep on TA. Food is delicious... if you normally find chinese food a bit greasy, you will be pleasantly surprised. It all has an authentic home cooked taste. They have only started realising how well rated they are on TA. Child friendly, well furnished, and highly recommended.

Excellent chinese meal. The owner was quite a character and recommended a pork dish using a recipe handed down by his family. I am well qualified to appreciate chinese food and would say it was an excellent dish. Restaurant has good ambience and is full of far eastern artifacts. Well done!
