Read the raving reviews in TA and decided to try out this place while visiting Antwerp. It is family style cooking, not the standard one would normally expect in a good Chinese restaurant with more "professional" standard of cooking. The food is so-so, nothing to rave about, and it agrees with the Belgian palate with rather bland seasoning. For a... More

Located just off the Sint Jansplein, this hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant serves fairly tasty Chinese food. I am however not fully convinced that it's worth the long trek to get there since the location is not very central and the high ranking/5* rating here on TA simply surprises me. I have to admit that the fried rice (do not understand why... More

What a delight. We enjoyed a marvelous meal starting with lompeias then the house special honey chicken with black pepper and a side of fried rice. While this restaurant isn't in "old Antwerp" and tucked away, it was well worth the walk! A must repeat next time we are in Antwerp!

This Chinese restaurant is a hidden pearl in the middle of Antwerp. If you want to taste a piece of Chinese food, this would be the place to be. A lot of different meals are offered on the menu, so everyone should find something according to the desired taste. I will certainly return when I am in the neighbourhood.

small and not that easy to find for a visiting tourist,but very much worthwhile taking a taxicab for when on Central station in Antwerp. Or simply walk to St.Jansplein area. Super tasty food and not at all that expencive.Owner Filippe and friends make you a delicious meal .A very sympathetic place to be ! 5 *****
