We went to this restaurant for hot chinese tea and dinner. The location was near to our hotel, and the food quality was ok though not quite authentic. We chose the Chinese dishes but not the Japanese dishes (as we knew that the chef was probably Chinese). In terms of price and services, it was ok. The tofu was quite... More

Worst dining experience in years of travel. The food was horrendous: 'crispy beef' the texture of old jellyfish, 'Szechuan' fish in a goopy, flavorless gel, roast duck made 2 days ago and microwaved into dry leather. The waiters are beyond rude (one adjoining table resorted to both people waving their arms... in vain), and the waiters are as likely turn... More

Had a good meal here, better than other Chineese restaurant visited. Reasonably priced and good value. Service was strange, little if no english spoken but got through. No frills with ordering greeted and asked for order wit the words OK.

Don't make my mistake of going here ... It used to be your typical lower budget but nice Chinese restaurant. What happened? This time, too much vinegar in the soup made it nearly inedible, & the "buddhist mixed vegetables" included canned peas, some gummy not-quite-cooked noodles, & only few mushrooms & carrot slices. There were no greens, bamboo shoots or... More

This was my strangest dining experience ever. When we got there we were given a table by a man & woman, who barely spoke two words. Of course my 3 year old had to use the bathroom immediately so I got up to look for one. The dynamic duo was just standing there pointing to the basement. I was a... More

We found this place by chance. We came here three times it was so good! Lunch, dinner and next day dinner again. The food is great Chinese! Would recommend the chicken noodle soup! The staff are very friendly all except one, I think she is the boss lady, she was quite rude to us.. Also, if you order one pot... More

I really wanted to give it a rating of 1. However, I'm in Florence and looking for a Chinese food fix, so what else can I expect...? Thus, I gave it a rating of two. The staff and owners are Chinese, which made it a more disappointing. Ordered from the regular menu - not pre-fixed. The plain stir fried veggies... More

If you are in the need of some Chinese food this is a great place to have a fix. The place is actually two restaurants with one kitchen, Japanese on the left and Chinese on the right. We got the pre-fix Chinese meal for two and it was a lot of food for two people under 30 Euro. It came... More

This restaurant was close to where we were staying, we read the reviews and decided to try it. My partner loves Tofu, and she was not disappointed. There was a good selection to choose from. I had the crispy beef, Carole had the Tofu, we shared a very large portion of excellent egg fried rice, mixed vegetables and two half... More

We ordered the noodles with seafood on a hot plate and beef with mushrooms. We also asked for a carafe of white wine. All the food was quite good. The carafe of white wine was quite big and generous. We enjoyed our meal there and the price was only about 22 euros. We went back 3 more times because we... More
