We arrived here quite early for dinner, at around 7pm, so we were one of the first in the restaurant. We were seated on a glass floor that looked down onto a koi pond and that was quite lovely! Our waitress, possibly the owner, didn't speak English but we managed to convey our orders and they arrived quite promptly. We... More

We go here at least twice a month to eat. It is busy at peak times, if you have to wait it is worth it. Staff are friendly and speak both Italian and English The food is fresh, and we'll prepared you will not be disappointed with your food. Enjoy

This is the first Chinese restaurant I have been to in Italy. It was very different to what I am used to .Perhaps my experiences in Australia and Hong Kong , Singapore could be considered more authentic . I ordered a soup which was really quite good in flavour even though not specifically Chinese . My lovely little man had... More

The cooking was very good, fresh and tasty; moreover the restaurants interior is modern and appealing. Finally the pricing level is very acceptable. Nevertheless we cannot ignore the fact that the friendly staff was sometimes overstrained, as there was only one English speaking waiter. Nevertheless the restaurant is a good recommondation.

... non really a "real" chinese, but well adapted to Western tastes while maintaining a certain degree of well-thought oriental trend. Well situated in the center of Padova, close to all historical sight. The "panoramic" floor is really impressive. Service is nothing special but relatively fast even if the restaurant is full. Suggested for a nice evening with friends.

the food is good but not amazing, considering the price it's really good, each plate costs you aroun 5-6 euro, but it's not really chinese food, it's more like an italian way to cook chinese, so if you are into strong flavors you won't find them here, still the food is ok

We picked this as it was close to our hotel, scored well on TA and we fancied a change. We hadn't booked and the restaurant was busy but they found a table for 2. Food was tasty although not the best Chinese I've ever had. Service was quick but food appeared as and when it was ready not necessarily when... More
