I need to taste some Chinese food. This place is pretty good. Fast and no fuss. This is Italy, so don't expect some authentic chinese cuisine like in Hong Kong. But, you won't be disappointed.

The menu makes it look like a cheap place to eat, but do not be fooled. The portion is mind-bogglingly small, the food clearly not fresh and the chef does not know his or stuff, clearly.

Don't you ever get into the lady owner. She is the worst server ever. She is really rude. Just go another chinese restaurant. There are a lot better place than here, with good food, good price and good service!

My husband and I enjoyed the food as we were looking for chinese food in Venice. We read some bad reviews on trip advisor but still decided to give it a try. We ordered the hot and sour soup, tomatoes with egg, hot sauce pork and chicken fried rice. We enjoyed the food even though the portion is small.

The employees are very helpful and polite whereas the food is cheaper than in the rest of the town. They need a better PR cause it's easy to miss it.

After two weeks of pizza and pasta we were looking for something a little different and, to be honest, a little bit of comfort food. I am glad that we did not let the negative reviews put us off. This is a standard Chinese restaurant in a very tourist orientated city. Every restaurant in Venice has a service charge and... More

We intentionally visit this place and being the first time for me. The food was simple in its presentation but the taste was amazingly good. We had the roast duck which was superb. The sweet and sour pork was very good as well and the soft fried noodle was equally good. What a pleasant meal.

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
