“Great night out...”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We have been to Nan Yuan at the Valletta Waterfront on Friday. We were given a table by the sea and needless to say the view of the harbour was great. All the food was delicious, but I highly recommend the Crispy Duck Rolls which were a treat. The staff were very helpful, and the service great.

I highly recommend a night out at the restaurant, for great food and a great atmosphere. Surely one of the best Chinese restaurants around.

“One of the best in Malta”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Restaurant is in a great location @ Valletta Waterfront Malta ... View of one of the best ports in the Mediterranean - Valletta Port surrounded with Fortifications, Bastions, Marinas, Berthed Cruise LIners ... you name it you have it! In the evening its best to dine outside to enjoy the Bastion Views and Fort St. Elmo on the other side of the Harbour. Food is Great and Freshly prepared, staff so and so .. not all speak and understand english. Chef is really handsome .. he spend those 10 secs asking if everything is ok with a chinese smile .... For families with kids preferably choose outside, internal seating is not that spacious especially when having a pushchair. Try make a reservation ahead to notify them re pushchair. For couples its excellent! Price is on the highside but its worth all of it! Will definately go back again.

“Best Cantonese Food on the island - BAR NONE!”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

If you are looking for 'Europeanised' Cantonese food look no further. I cannot believe some of the negative comments about the food. Maybe most people don't know what to order or do not know what crispy beef should look and taste like. Also for those people who mentioned eating the bird's nest... whilst its edible it hardly tastes good and is not intended to be eaten - jeez!

Also, for the overall quality of the restaurant it is very well priced. Anyone who thinks this restaurant is expensive has obviously not eaten out much in good restaurants or travelled to very many cities and eaten in PRIME locations.

For me the food gets 5 STARS!

“Terrible Experience, NEVER AGAIN!”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

Last Saturday, we went to the Nan Yuan (we were 10 of us) to celebrate our friend's birthday.

We ordered the wine, the platter, the duck and the main course.

After a long while, the platter finally came and it was good. After about an hour the duck finally came (after complaining several times). For the main course to arrive it was 23:30hrs (we arrived at 20:30hrs) and still no sign of the main course!- We obviously complained to the Chinese lady who reassured us that our main course would have come in 5 mins. After again 15 minutes still no sign of our food. Finally a waitress came out with food and we thought that she would get it to our table. Instead she took it to the table next to us!!- After that the people on the table already had started nibbling from the food, again the chinese lady came out and was about to take the food from their table and give it to us- UNBELIEVABLE!!- At this point all of us stood up from the table and asked for the bill because no way were we going to tolerate this attitude. The Management didn't even have the decency to apologise let alone deduct something from the bill- They spoilt our evening especially our friend's birthday. So if you don't want to eternally wait for your food, then avoid going to this restaurant!!!.
