Until a few years ago it used to be one of the best in Rome, for sure in the Balduina area. I have been a regular for years and it was a really good Chinese. In these last years it has gone done a lot, in terms of service and quality of the food, I guess since they introduced the... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant near the Vatican. It's been opened for 3-4 years and has Mandarin Chinese staff, they don't speak much English but have English menus. It has Japanese, and mainly Cantonese cuisine but slightly tailored to the local Italian tastes. It serves mainly to local Italians but it's definitely different to the standard Italian food you find... More

Like everyone, I'm sick of pasta and pizza. The last Chinese place we tried was ok, but more Italian than Chinese. This place was great and the cheapest sit down meal we've had, best value. My wife and I had Spring Rolls 1.8 euro for two, shrimp fried rice for 3 euros (I said THREE euros? Probably a SMALL bowl!... More

After nine days eating Italian food, it was time for a change. We saw this restaurant advertised on the way back from the Basilica and decided to give it a try. When you walk in everyone ignores you. They have this older lady taking you order that yells at all the customers. There was a customer behind us in the... More

It's not a fancy place (we were sitting outside), but the real Chinese food is very good. The waitresses were very friendly and helpfull, although they almost didn't speak Englisch (and we don't speak Chinese or Italian)

We ordered from the lunch menu. First thing no waiter came to us, we had to go to them and ask for menu and order. We got a salad with small insects. Both chicken dishes where exactly the same. Don't go to this place. Unless you are looking for cheap, noisy, dirty place and food:)

Service was ok, but food wasn't good at all, dinner had a funny taste we didn't finish it but yet were charged full price. happened to find it just because most restaurants in Rome are closed on Mondays, won't go again.

Since we had had pasta for lunch, we decided to try Chinese food in the middle of Rome! If one understands that Chinese food in Europe does not taste the same as in Canada or the United States, then you are totally capable of appreciating the food in this restaurant and it's variety. Located a few steps away from the... More

I was so sick of pasta and pizza that I was craving chinese so bad. We stumbled by this place walking to the Vatican. It had very cheap food and even cheap sushi deals. The hot and sour soup hit the spot with a bit of extra vinegar added. The dumplings, although thick skinned and mediocre filling, dipped in a... More
