Excellent food! Crispy duck was superb. Owned and run by a Chinese family. Atmosphere typical Chinese kitsch and owners wife typical fast Chinese woman. Go for the food and enjoy!

I stayed in Storchen, my dad love chinese food and its very hard for me to pick one or go so far to get a nice decent chinese food. So i just sat down and prepared to be scammed. I really do. And I was being overly negative over this small restaurant. I agree this restaurant located so strategic and... More

On a little cut from the Storchengasse near to the Bahnhofstrasse there is a wondderful retaurant. When you enter you feel as if you are in China. The food is very good even for children. The retaurant is managed by the Liu-Min family who help you to choose the food you like so there is no chance that you will... More

Being a huge Chinese food fan, I have walked pass this restaurant several times, checked out their menu outside- and made a pass. As from outside, it looks more like a tourist trap, especially in such a location. However, we were invited there last week and I realized what a big mistake I have made. The dishes are more on...

Staff was very unfriendly and we got shortchanged for a voucher we had. Some dishes very of good quality, some average at best. All in all, to to be recommended.

We've eaten at a few Chinese places now in Zurich and this by far was the best. The street it is on is a very tiny street just a few blocks from the Paradeplatz Square. And only half a block from the water. (You can actually see the water from the outside tables). We were actually surprised to see a... More

According to Züritipp this is one of the best in town (the best being a place in Adliswil) and hence I was surprised to find the inner decoration of an old smoky 70's Swiss restaurant and to get served food which is decent to say the best. The produce is fresh but you leave the place asking yourself why you... More
