My husband and I had a layover for Tahiti to Bora Bora, we looked at Google maps and saw that there was a restaurant right across from the airport. To our surprise it was a chinese restaurant. Being from New York, i can say that the food is really good. We ordered the salty fish tofu casserole, sauteed vegys and garlic, and pepper and salt shrimp. All the dishes were made well and tasty! We are planning to come back on our pit stop back to the State side. If you are in Tahiti, definitely try this place out.

This was the best Chinese food I have ever had! We have traveled from east coast to the west coast in the US and I was impressed by the quality of the seafood and taste of all our dishes! The owner was there and helped assist us. She was so kind. We told her we love spicy and with the ending of our bora bora vacation with a 5 hour layover we were in need of some amazing Asian food and some spice. She whipped us up her special spicy dipping sauce and her homegrown peppers!!!! We loved every bite of it with our dishes. We had salt and pepper shrimp, crab, and soup! If you’re waiting at the airport for a layover walk on over to this place and get some food!

My wife and I have been here to the take-out side before and this visit did not disappoint. We ordered the cashew chicken and it was really great. We are an older couple and one dish is all that you need for two when ordered with a serving of rice.
Very tasty. Be sure to have a couple of Hinano beers handy when you sit down to eat. They have a nice menu on the order counter of the take-out side, so it is all translated to English. Not cheap but reasonable by Tahiti standards.

We had an excellent meal here after walking from the Tahiti airport motel.

Things to be aware of:
This isn’t fine dining if you expect this then don’t go
This is French Polynesia and it is not cheap, saying that it’s not really expensive
You will need to use a bit of pointing or French if you want to order - if you are an English or nothing person then don’t go.

We found food very tasty, staff pleasant and enjoyed the use of school French to order.

If you are staying at the Tahiti motel hotel - then go along for dinner and you won’t be disappointed

Very good Chinese food and they provide you with great recommendations! Walk up the stairs from the airport and you'll see it. Very good!
