Taiwan Chinese Restaurant, Arrecife

With a plethora of Chinese restaurants in Lanzarote there are many good ones available around the resorts. The best without a doubt is the Taiwan in Arrecife, situated in Calle Canalejas the easiest way to find the restaurant is to park under the Gran Hotel and when you surface from the car park, cross over the road and walk through to the side road runnig parallel to the coast road and the Taiwan is on the corner. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the portions are huge and I can promise that you won't be disappointed. The lemon chicken is the best I've ever eaten!  read more »
