Restaurant Review Guidelines

People dine out for something unique they cannot replicate at home, or.. they are simply too busy to cook! Either way, our job here is to help save their time and help them find out if they'd like it or not!

Okay, so.. we would want to be thorough in this! Here is how you do it:


Lighting, tabletop, music, walls & ceilings, flooring, plants & flowers, artwork, outdoor seating if available.. Customer demographics: age, gender..

How does it make you feel to be there?


Does it have both Chinese and English? Do you have many things to choose from? How about their drink menu? How's their wine list? Do they charge for napkins and water?

Cleanliness & Hygiene

Dirty or Clean? Old or Modern? How's their bathroom? Read more »

El Toro Comes Charging Into Houhai With Authentic Spanish Cuisine

These days, Shenzhen has so many different restaurants offering all kinds of cuisine from all over the world. You can find almost anything you desire from the more popular Italian and French restaurants to the up and coming styles from the Middle East and also South America.

One cuisine that has been conspicuous by its absence in Shenzhen, however, is Spanish food. For all the Italian pastas and Indian curries you can try, the city has been criminally short of places offering pinchos or paella. That is all about to change with the arrival of El Toro in Houhai.

Your new favorite Mexican in the heart of bustling Shuiwei 藏在水围巷子里你最爱的墨西哥餐吧

I have to admit, Mexican restaurants are my favorite kind of restaurants. So you can imagine my excitement when one lazy afternoon, while walking down the bustling streets of Shuiwei, I came across Mambo. I had high hopes for this Mexican restaurant and cocktail bar. I was not to be disappointed.


Mambo invites you in with its open doors and outside seating. When you see the blue and white walls match the Vespa scooter parked out front, you know this is a place that pays attention to detail.

敞开的门窗,开放的用餐环境,蓝白色的墙面与门外停放着的韦士柏踏板车相映,可见Mambo 精细入微的特征。 Read more »

Residence G Shenzhen has impacted the heart of Nanshan by combining both a modern boutique hotel and a lifestyle-serviced apartment. I personally love the modern and European look and feel of this residence hotel and the fact that it is only a five-minute Mobike trip away from the Raffles City Mall and fifteen-minute drive from Shekou entertainment & dining area. If you are a guest or a resident of Residence G, you can enjoy all of the modern amenities and personal touch experiences offered by the Residence G staff at your leisure. Read more »

Amazing View, Food and Ambiance at Grange Grill at The Westin Shenzhen Nanshan
Grange Grill has amazing Steaks, Seafood and Ambiance

In every big city, there are these certain restaurants that you can go to for a great fine dining experience and beautiful city view. These are located usually on high rises overlooking the city and in America, many times they will have a rotating functionality to them so that while you enjoy your dinner, you are getting a full 360 view of the city. I have to admit that many restaurants I have visited around the world with great city views often had a food experience that was definitely below average. These restaurants would capitalize the location to win their guests while suffering a barrage of negative reviews of the food. Read more »

Shark Brings an "Eat, Drink and Play" Atmosphere to Coco Park
Unique meats, tapas, seafood and drinks at Shark

I remember when I first came to Shenzhen, there were not a lot of “Hot Spots” that were showcasing great places of entertainment, dining and shopping besides the Shekou area. It wasn't until very recently that other hot spots, as I like to call it, started popping up around the Futian area and one of those spots – now very popular among locals and expats – is the Coco Park CMD area of Futian. This area has evolved into a great place for shopping, entertainment and FNB. When I first came here, I was shocked to see the diversity of dining locations but one spot that stood out to me was a restaurant called “Shark.” This was pretty easy, since there is literally a shark tank above the sign with real sharks swimming around.
