Great Chinese food. Great service. We had a private room so kids would not bother other customers. The owner is very attentive and the food is outstanding. We tried the duck the coca cola chicken and the hot and sour soup. All very tasteful and savory. Highly recommended.

It was a Thursday evening (9th October 2014) when two of my friends and me decided to visit this restaurant. We had around half an hour train ride, but the landscape is so beautiful, you totally forget about the time. The restaurant is just in front of the train station, you can't miss it. From the first second we walked... More

We went to this restaurant on my birthday the first week of November and it is some of the best Asian food we have had in Europe. They have the standard dished you would find anywhere plus some real specialities such as Cola Chicken. The service is greatly, attentive but not overbearing. We highly recommend it.

First let me explain the five stars, as I don't usually like perfect numbers as it stops the chance of further improvement. It is a 4.5 star for me for a Chinese food restaurant Gialu and that extra 0.5 star is for it being in a small country town in the middle of Switzerland. It was all in harmony :... More

On our holiday trip back from the south of Italy towards The Netherlands, me and my wife have spent the night in one of the two hotel rooms that Jialu has opened. What a surprise to find such a high level of hospitality in such an unexpected place. Unfortunately, since we arrived late we did not have a chance to... More
