Delicious food, succulent chicken dishes. Service was a little slow but have gone back twice so that says a lot. A little pricey but wonderful chinese. If you like spicy, just mention it and it will be made so. We love spicy food so this place works for us!

A restaurant whose costumers are locals. Meaning you can be sure it's not a tourist trap, even if they have a menu with english translation. But in a city of 165 foreign missions it's the least you would expect. Very easy to reach, even by foot, just a a 10 minutes walk from Pont Montblanc. Loved the food, well served,... More

This restaurant has a very nice decoration. The food is good and prices are correct. You can enjoy a buffet for lunch every day for a very cheap price. Buffet is very well served, with at least 3 hot meals, plus soup, plus dim-sum, plus salad....fruit salad, etc... Take away service is offered.

I almost go once per week to this Chinese restaurant, service is very good, always provide free coffee or drink to long term clients. Menu has various choices, can satisfy all kinds of taste. Decoration has good class. I love spicy food, highly recommend the spicy fish. Also the egg plant with meat (not included into the menu yet) was... More

A known restaurant. sorry but I too do not agree to the negative comments. May be they just had a bad day. The duck crepes were tasty. I like the tangy taste. My favourite rice crisped with fried beef... yummm. A very chinese restaurant with bright red colored interiors and simple decor. Service was good.

Having known this restaurant for a number of years, I'm very surprised to read a negative review. Its name is very apt the present owners took over this establishment when it was a joke of a Chinese restaurant giving it its present name and indeed it rose from the ashes. Service , Quality and Costs are excellent. Its fixed price... More

Went tonight, arrived at 19:30 and the place was empty. First bad sign. Ordered only standard fare, which was dumplings...none of which were fresh. All reheated. Then Nem and shrimp, tasted of musky oil (in the frying). Second bad sign. It kept getting worse. The stir fried seasonal vegetables were uneatable. Without any wine, this lousy food came to 87...

Chinese restaurants in Europe or North America are always reason enough for hungry Chinese to be wary. Since most of the local clientele are NOT Chinese, restaurant owners have learned to adapt. I bet that somewhere in Leeds, England, or Kalamazoo, Michigan, - or in both places - there is an academy teaching authentic Chinese cooks how to dilute their... More
