“Pleasantly Surprised!”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

After many years of visiting this area we eventually made it to the Chinese Gourmet and am glad to report we were pleasantly surprised.The staff were very attentive and the food was of good quality, it was nice to see some initiative being used by the waitress in recommending the duck as being just freshly cooked, the chef/owner then took time out to visit (nicely) each table and ask was everything the our satisfaction, and the final bit of good news, the bill, very reasonable indeed, especially compared to other Chinese establishments in the area! Ken Lo's take note! Maybe that is why this establishment was busy on a February Tuesday night.

“Sea bass”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

Ive used this restaurant many times because it's the best Chinese around and I found out on my visit last week that they do Sea Bass in spring onion and ginger for 12€ for 2 persons and the people on the next table said is was excellent and at 6€ a person the best value around.

“Don't miss it”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

Not only is it the best Chinese food I've ever had it is also a great night out.
The owner (head chef Mike) and his wife Elder make you feel like family, he is always willing to talk you you about the menu and alter the dishes to your liking. My friends and I dine there every time we visit the Algarve, the whole experience is first class and we're looking forward to the next time

“Warm welcome”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Great food and friendly staff, nice to share a glass of port with London Mike. Food was fresh, mouthwatering and if your not sure what to have the staff will always find something to meet your tastes.

“Hong Kong Foody”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 via mobile

A must try in the area. Chinese Mike (a Londoner) and his wife are great hosts and the food is good and consistent. Gets very busy in Summer, so book ahead. Good takeaway trade. Crispy duck, Hoi Sin and pancakes worth the visit alone.
