Review by Souad

Chenbao, or castle in Chinese, is maybe the only fine dining restaurant serving Chinese cuisine in town. The restaurant is well located on the main road between Saifi and Downtown. Big glass panels link the place to the exterior. The decor is dark and fancy with wooden panels and granite floor. Every small detail on the tables has been taken care of from table sets, to candles and wide spaces between tables.

The menu is mostly Chinese with some Thai and Vietnamese items. The variety and richness of the menu is satistfying while prices are high especially the seafood and the duck. We ordered Vietnamese prawn rolls, Thai grilled chicken and fried prawns with honey garlic sauce. The rolls were poor with mostly lettuce filling. The main courses were delicious but the quantities were not generous. We also tasted their frosted jasmine macaron dessert that is original and tastes Ok.

The staff is mostly composed of Asian waiteresses wearing traditional Chinese dresses. The girls were welcoming, friendly and fast, but too intrusive as they interfere too often to refill water glasses, pick up the plate the second you finish your bite or cut your conversation to put the cutlery on the table.
