This is a fun place to go for lunch to get away from it all and have some decent chinese. Great service. Location not ideal but still worth it.

I highly recommend Fernando and Lyn Lay's restaurant to travellers in Dili. The food is high class, the service is efficient and friendly and the decor is great. Golden Star is also an excellent caterer for conferences, they went out of their way to accommodate our conference in Dili in September 2013.

It gets a bit tiring wandering around Dili during the heat of the day - but this typical SE Asian restaurant is a real find. The staff are friendly, although English is not spoken well - but one of the best things is that they have local Timorese food. I had an excellent sour fish soup followed by Timorese chicken and mushrooms. This is a place frequented mainly by locals that is well worth a visit.

Agree with other reviewers; this restaurant is always reliable: great food, friendly (and quick) service, good value for money. My husband got addicted to their Pica Pau (stir-fried beef with black pepper sauce). I am dreaming of their papaya flower dish now... (when I was lucky it came with banana flower too!).
