“One of the oldest Chinese restaurant in Addis with its own charm”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

The food is quite nice and waitresses are very polite. The best food is the sizzler and I also like the hot and sour (devil) soup, assuming that you like hot soups.Mixed fried rice also goes quite well with the sizzler. The only issue is the relatively high cost of the food that is comparable with most Chinese restaurants in Addis.

“Nice Chinese”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

If you´ve had enough Injera, and if you´re staying in the Meskel sq / Ghion area, this could be a welcome "get away" from the chaotic streets of Addis. Very good traditional chinese food, lots of taste, friendly staff, and very wallet-friendly prices. Ask them to prepare a "little-of-all" if you´re part of a group...

“A great escape from the Ghion's food”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

Just outside the entrance to the Ghion Hotel, the China Bar and Restaurant serves first class Chinese food. Service was prompt and helpful. The three of us enjoyed the special meal with a beer for the princely sum of about USD15 each.

Well worth a visit when you have had your fill of injera.
