Hai Ya is recommended in the Eat Sanya guide for Wancheng Hainan Chicken. It is a very nice looking grand restaurant from the outside with a pleasant looking dining room on the entry level. Unfortunately we were quickly ushered upstairs to the pink and shiny fabric-covered-seat tables in a low ceiling, hot, un-elegant, dingy dining room. The menu is in... More

You can not go wrong with this restaurant. Cold chicken dish, mutton, pork, and vegetable dishes are all excellent. If you don't speak Chinese you may have difficulty. Show pictures if you can not get anyone to understand you.

We went here for the Hainan food as the restaurant is reputed to be good for the 4 main culinary attractions. However, ordering is hard as the menu is in Chinese only (as I am ethnically but am not literate and I never was able to learn mandarin) and the provided english translation (not on the menu but a separate...

The Wen Chang chicken is delicious! It is very tasty. However, the meat is a little tough, like free range chicken kind of meat. Omelet with bitter gourd is good too. We also had a steamed groupa which was very fresh and good. It is also not expensive. RMB 108 for the fish. We also ordered a braised hog dish... More

I came here with my three friends -- we told our hotel we were looking for Hainan chicken (a famous dish in Hainan) and they recommended this place. It is a big bustling restaurant with a glass front window and full of families. When you walk in, ahead and to the left is an open kind of kitchen space where... More
