THE JOURNEY

Bringing Truly Authentic Chinese Cuisine To Swansea

Inspired by the lack of real Chinese cuisine within the local Swansea area, typical of that which you would experience in China itself, Gigi Gao ventured to change the local Chinese dining culture by introducing truly authentic Chinese cuisine, and a memorable dining experience to match. 

The restaurant is small but very busy providing a great atmosphere for all types of dining. Whilst the dishes and flavours are unique to the local area, the growing following and subsequent high recommendations speak for themselves. A little light Shanghai Jazz is the preferred music of the evening and you can occasionally find a live musical treat at The Favourite.
