We stumbled on this restaurant because our other choice was closed. After days of pizza and pasta, my son wanted something different and this was a pleasant surprise. Not knowing what to expect from Chinese food overseas, we were greeted warmly by the owner and his wife. If you want to speak Chinese, they will certainly understand your needs which... More

We were looking for something different after days of great pasta and pizza. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. Best Hot and Sour soup I have ever had (and I have had lots). The beef and peppers was quite tasty and, as noted earlier, the lemon chicken was excellent. Good prices and service. We would go... More

Looked up for somewhere to go on tripadvisor, found this place... Food is AMAZING - never knew lemon chicken could taste so lovely! The man who served us was absolutely adorable, sweetest man and his face lit up when we tipped him. Best customer service. The atmosphere could have been a tiny bit better but oh well. We had: spring... More

Terrible, totally unable to eat.. A shame to be called as Chinese food. Too salty and you can even find a bunch of salt in fried rice. A lie to say its Chinese food. Do not go!

We were on 16 days Italy trip and Rome was our final destination and we were sick of pizza. We found Yami on tripadvisor so we went straight there and ordered 3 dishes. Portion in each dish was perfect for 3 of us and with delicious taste. We enjoyed chili paste that put on each table. The owners are also... More

I found this restaurant on trip advisor. At first, i was not sure its taste( i am asian). I decided to order fried dug, seafood fried rice and pork&shrimp dumpling as sides. They were very good for me, i could say 'delicious'. And price is not over 10 eur per person, including drink.

I was hoping to find some authentic Chinese food here but I was disappointed. Very Westernized wontons and dumplings, odd ingredients in the fried rice, and their 'tempura' was too batter-y by far. I did love their fried eggplants though (literally, a plate of chopped and fried eggplant) but that isn't hard to get wrong. Slower service than usual for... More
