We were here for a business dinner as a group of six people. Place is in a sort of shady area, especially when you get here in the evening. On the other hand parking is easier at night. Kitchen door was open and pig carcasses were all over the place. Living in Asia that didn't disturb us at all. Au contraire, it reaffirmed the host's contention that this was as authentic Chinese as it gets. And that was absolutely correct. The dishes were absolutely outstanding and came in good size portions. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but I wholeheartedly recommend to drop in and enjoy the food.

This restaurant is located just a few short blocks from the Hotel Tahiti Nui. It is a very nice Oriental restaurant serving Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese food. We ordered Chinese that was very good. As usual in an Oriental restaurant, it's best to eat in a group so everyone can order their favorite and then you can share it all. The servings were all of good size and very tasty. The restaurant has both downstairs and upstairs dining areas, as well as a dining area in the bar where music and dancing is conducted on weekends. The price was about normal by Tahiti standards and well worth the visit.

Good restaurant near the government building about three blocks from market. Portions are decent and what we ordered was tasty. A/C was big plus. Friendly service but slow. We can recommend it for four or more sharing.

A little hidden place amongst the shambles of Papeete. Food well priced, they go out of their way to accommodate any requirements. Amazing crab in ginger sauce, great prawns and good thai too - just great all round food, portions and service. Well worth seeking this one out - visited 3 times 2 times prior to Bora Bora and 1 time after on way home. Miss the crab already - see you next time
