Time Out Says

No frills and plenty of cheap thrills – China Sea truly feels like dining in deepest, well, China.

Service and décor are rough around the edges, in stark contrast to Dubai’s usual glitziness and overly attentive waiters. Portions are huge, so your best bet is to order a vegetable dish – such as the juicy fried tofu home style with peppers – to accompany one main course per person. The more expensive à la carte fish and seafood dishes have the freshness that the cheaper spicy crab or Guangdong-style fried prawns on the menu lack, which are ample servings but miss any distinguishable Chinese touch. The Double Taste duck, a DIY fajita-style dish with succulent sliced duck breasts and bone marrow, as well as a powerful soy-based paste and celery sticks, is a great and adventurous choice. Some menu options could do with “how to eat” instructions for non-Chinese customers, such is their authenticity. A visit to China Sea offers more cultural delights than it does culinary ones.
