The food was appalling. I'm not sure how it's possible to make food this awful. The chicken, beef, and duck were all fatty, chewy, and bland. It really wouldn't surprise me if they were all from the same animal although I can't identify what it would be. Zermatt would be better served if it was shut down permanently .

Greeted by a polite and welcoming lady but was served by a very abrupt and rude waiter. Food was really bad and extremly disappointing. Did not feel comfortable at all. We really looked forward to eating here as it was something a little different near the end of my girlfriends visit to Zermatt. Ended up leaving after 40 minutes and... More

A Chinese restaurant that doesn't serve Crispy Duck with pancakes…really? The staff weren't bothered about us being there and just went through the motions. The starters on the 'to share' platter were all deep fried so you were just left with a taste of hot fat. The location is central but it just wasn't great.

I have no idea what to say about the other reviews on here, as my husband and I dined here our last night in Zermatt and were highly impressed! The ambiance, food, and service were top notch! My only complaint is that it is a bit pricey but well worth it !

We were ready for a change, and had not have Chinese food for a while so we decided to give this place a go..I wished I had checked Tripadvisor before as the comments about poor service and bland food are correct. My lemon chicken was actually battered and very greasy chicken fillet, with a lemon sauce on the side. Both... More

I have had many trips to Zermatt and have always meant to try this Restaurant, and I do wish I had not. I took a local person and a very well versed chinese culinaire. Where do you start, the Duck was dry we did not eat it all and they did not even have any decent sauce to serve with... More

On the 2nd day of our 3-day stay in Zermatt, my sis and i were clueless on what to have after a disappointing italian meal for dinner. We discovered this restaurant located in the backlane of Zermatt town after hearing some chinese tourists talked about it. We hesitated if we should give it a try after an awful chinese fried...
