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

when you come here, you dont look for the atmosphere (it is very tight, mostly full) or the excellent service, you come for good chinese food. You wont be dissapointed. 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

This place is great, I would go back once a week if I could! It is very busy all the time and usually filled up with asians, and since all of my Chinese friends recommend this restaurant to me, I am guessing that it is the closest to the real deal that you can find here in Lausanne. It is... More

When we arrived, nobody said hi and took us to a table. We sat for nearly half an hour, but still no service ... not even a menu on the table or asked if we wanted to have a drink first ... nothing at all. We tried to call them many times, but they said "Wait" and they kept walking... More

We've been to China and this restaurant is closest to what we experienced in China: crowded, noisy, but fresh and authentic. Don't expect any fancy decorations or furniture, although recently it has been renovated and looks better.And all this at reasonable prices for Switzerland. Service is sometimes disorganized (some waiters hardly speak any other language than Mandarin)-you do not always... More

Awfull service: spring rolls after main plate, rice at dessert. Worst Chinese food : spicy crispy sweet and sour pork was in fact a chewing gum pork floating in an ugly creamy Sirup sauce. Beijing duck was cold, chewing gum and sauce disgusting. Ambiance: be ready to make a full dry cleaning of all your clothes after this experience.
