Chic Chinese restaurant on La Rambla.

Yet another belonging to the mighty Tragaluz group (see also [node:167686] and [node:167723]). La Xina, as the name suggests, is their foray into Chinese food.

Food and drink

The menu is a slightly odd blend of Eastern and elsewhere, with dishes such as ‘roast beef’ (which turned out to be beef carpaccio served on hot rice) and chicken Madras. Mostly the dishes hail from China, with a list of dim sum to start, followed by various broths, wok-fried noodle and rice dishes, and steamed fish.

Ambience

With velvet banquettes and latticed teak room dividers, this is not your average Soho temple to Formica. You’ll also find a fairly trendy crowd (mixed in among the hotel guests from the adjacent [node:121068]).

Service

Unobtrusive waiters, easy to flag down.

Location

The entrance is just off La Rambla, on C/Pintor Fortuny.

Price advice

Main courses are around 15 euros, or at lunchtime there’s a menú del dia for the same price.
