“dinner at the china house”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

this place exudes quality.well furnished and decorated with a choice of indoor(air conditioned) or outdoor on the terrace with views of naama and all the action.the first thing you notice is the photos of international chefs specialising in their own cuisine.the food was quality and the service good.a jolly good dinner at reasonable prices.probably the best meal i had.

“Great food, average service”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

SOme great food with a wide variety of Thai, Indian and Chinese. Good views of the main area of Sharm. Sadly the service was not the best, and a bit of a downer for the place.

“Tasty food and great service”
Reviewed 4 April 2013 via mobile

I have been back to this restaurant several times. The service is excellent and the food is extremely tasty. There are also great views of the busy street below. It is rumoured that Tony Blair may have visited this restaurant as there used to be a picture of him and the chef on the wall.

“Really enjoyed it in every way!”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

For a reasonable evening with excellent food and service and a great view from the balcony you can't beat it. My husband said the only draw back was the cold plates. This is normally only available if you sit inside. A few days later we returned and our meal was served with hot plates. Now how is that for service! We wish them well and look forward to seeing them next year!

“Unusually bad experience, waiter dismissed as a result.”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

Went here with family of 4 and had an Indian meal. Having Indian heritage we have a pretty good idea what the food should tast like.

It was largely superb, and I do mean very good. One dish was done incorrectly as we asked for it mild and it was hot.

The negative was the service - we we're continually having to call the waiter over to clear our table, move our plates and bring the next course. Getting extra sundries was a real chore, it took all the fun out of the experience of eating out.

Service is an additional 12.5% and i didnt pay that. also as I expect to get reasonable service anyway when I eat out I deducted 10% for the negative experience which the manager said the waiter would pay. This resulted in the waiter shouting somehting in Arabic at us and thn spitting in our direction before storming off.

The restaurant is actually owned by an enterpising Chinese buisiness women called Mrs Lay, who has a chain across Egypt. Given the trouble she is clearly going to to build a brand I am sure this is not the type of experience she would want her customers to associate here restaurant with. The manager was excellent and said the waiter would be dismissed.

In poorer countries where people are expected to deliver a service they have experience of consumong themselves it can be difficult to get the right people. That said, the chefs were clearly excellent and I would recommend the food IF you can have it delivered to your table and served to you at your convenience.
