The food wasn't bad, but the amounts of food compare to the price wasn't satisfying. I ordered Fried chicken and they only served certain like chicken breast. Lol Come on fried chicken without legs,wings and etc.....the server wasn't nice and she seems reluctant to serve. I highly discourage u to go.

It's not the best Chinese food in Italy but it's definitely edible. We had the fried wontons which were just ok. Next grilled pork dumplings, a little bit soggy. The chicken fried rice had hardly any chicken. The shrimp chow mein was not bad. The beef with scallions was fresh and tasty. The food was fresh in general, the service... More

It's not so easy to find good Chinese food in Italy and close to tourist attractions so we had no big expectations walking in to nin hao. Surprisingly, food they serve was quite good, it is still changed a bit to suit tastes of local people but at the end, it's probably as close to the Asian food as it... More

We accidentally found this restaurant on our way to Ponte Vecchio (and we got off on the wrong bus stop lol) The chinese food here is not so great but good enough for the price they charge. The restaurant is clean with free wifi inside. If you are on the budget and miss the Asian food, this could be one... More

Having eaten eaten Chinese food extensively in Malaysia, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, quite a bit in China, and occasionally in Amsterdam, Bruge and San Francisco (OK, you get my drift … ), my conclusions are: The Good: a surprisingly good Chinese restaurant the caters very well to westerners' taste in Chinese food (i.e. completely non-Chinese items e.g. Prawns on Toast,...

For two Americans, both originally from the NYC area, our standards for Chinese Food is quite high. This restaurant provided very good food at decent, moderate prices. We had a shrimp dish, a beef dish, soup and eggroll. The food was fresh, cooked well and very tasty. If you are in Florence, give this a try.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
