I believe there are 3 chinese restaurants in the town. Any body willing and able to rate them in order of quality?

I've been to A Grande Muralha and the other one further up, they were both good although I did prefere the one at the top of the hill because the service was slightly better. Mind you it was a couple of years ago, but the owners are the same. The new one op. the taxis is owned by the same people as the one at the top of the hill, it seems to be quite busy at lunch time when I pass (and I pass every week day!) but they have a nice terrace over looking the village!! Try any one of them I don't think you'll be dissapointed. :lol: Hope this helps Pinkiebluesky :wink:

Ive been to the one at the top of the road and i would recommend it there not only is the food and service good but the decor is nice as well, sorry i dont know the name of it. I went to the one at the bottom of the hill about 5 years ago but i wasnt very impressed but maybe it may have improved since then :!:

Forget Chinkies in Carvoeiro - Jardim Sul in Lagoa is run by Chinese (not Hong Kong) and the quality is far superior,prices cheaper and look where all the locals go !!
Lunch specials from 4.95 for spring roll,main course and coffee or tea.
Drinks also reasonable i.e. caneca 1.85.
Situated in pedestrian area and only problem is parking.

i live in carvoeiro and eat out a lot

accepting that this is carvoeiro and not tsim sha sui, the chinese at the top of the hill is the best, you can taste the difference in the dishes, the others are pretty much 'pot noodle'.

the nicest curry is the himalaya in the pedestrian district in portimao, it's a bit hidden away and plainly decorated but the food is usually terriffic.

there's a good japanese too, on the west end of praia da rocha by taffy's bar, called 'tokyo', most of the restaurant is given over to an average buffet but they have an excellent teppenyaki counter, the salmon and the steaks are lovely.

hope this helps those that are interested a little bit.

I tried Jardim Sul in Lagoa last night, I ordered ( take away) 6 dishes 2 rice and 2 spring rolls which took 15 mins, it came to 46,95 euros. The portions were large and the food looked nice and fresh but I found it tasteless and slightly oily, which is a shame because it smelt wonderful. Maybe I was unlucky, or maybe because it was a takeaway, I will try it again just to make sure!! Pinkiebluesky :lol:
