Unbeatable food quality but crammed and crowded

In terms of quality of the food this place has one of the best quality Chinese dishes, especially some spicy and lamb dishes. There are also home made dumplings and home made noodles, which is a specialty. However, the place is small and often crowded during peak hours and especially during... read more

Do not put your best clothes to go the Chez Xu because when you will step out the restaurant they will smell a lot. Except for this issue the food is really excellent and the restaurant itself is a lot of fun. We were 4 and after ordering it did not take too long before the plates start arriving. I... More

Large portions, full of flavor, wide variety of food! It's loud, it's crowded (so make sure to reserve), and you may end up sharing your table with complete strangers--this is what makes it so fun! They also do call-ahead take out, so if you feel like staying in you can do that. One portion feeds two people easily, but the... More

Food was fantastic and the service was great. We were there for lunch and had Peking Duck and Spare Ribs with the shaved salad and wonton soup. I have traveled in China and no where in my experience have I had better Chinese food outside of China. Authentic and fresh and tasty! Always a good sign when you see quite... More

I had booked in advance a table for two and asked if it would be private, she said yes no problem. We arrived and she tried to put us on a round table with four other complete strangers. After reiterating the phone call that i had had with HER, she put us at the bar to eat....... We were then... More

We did a reservation for 2 and were later told we HAD to move to join 3 more persons in a very tiny table that can only fit max 4 persons because they needed to accommodate other persons!!! We left.

Great Chinese food. Good menu and reasonably priced. Close to Riponne metro. Went twice. Probably worth booking for busier times to guarantee a table, they managed to squeeze us in on the bar with other non-bookers, which was fine - just part of the experience.

The food quality is excellent and quantity of food they serve you is huge. You can ask for a dogy bag. They warn you how spicy the dish you picked and give you the option to reduce the amount of spice. The aubergine royal is fantastic but comes super spicy. They are not able to serve all people together but... More

The portions are big, food is excellent. It was quite fast as well, and they even packed our leftovers, it was too yummy to leave it :))) Money more than... More
