FoodBlog – Cape Town Restaurants: Mr Chan

Mr Chan got recommended to my family when we first arrived in Cape Town and now I am recommending it to everyone who reads this. Mr Chan is definitely the best Chinese restaurant in Cape Town. Over all the years, the restaurant has never disappointed. It is situated on Main Road in Seapoint and is part of the Sea Point City Improvement District. Parking is always available and safe.
Mr Chan‘s menu is extensive: it includes chicken, beef & seafood and also caters for vegetarian dishes. Their starters and desserts are also a delight. You should definitely try out some of these dishes :
  • Starter: Won Ton Soup
  • Main: Chicken Cashew, Orange Duckling, and Shredded Beaf Cantonese Style
They are all amazing meals. The one thing that kind of ticks me off about Chinese restaurants is that you always have to order noodles or rice separately. It should be part of the meal. Any other restaurant wouldn’t just give you a steak and then charge you extra for potatoes and vegetables. An average meal costs around R90 - R100 and it is well worth it.
Mr Chan is a popular restaurant in Cape Town, so make sure you make a booking before you arrive – especially on weekends. People always say you know the food must be good, if locals go to that restaurant a lot.The same could actually be said of Mr Chan. Around 7 pm busses start arriving at the doors and Asian tourists start entering the restaurant. Now, if these tourists come to Cape Town and have their dinner at Mr Chan, then you know the food must be good.
