Enjoyed our dinner….large portions and the mains can easily be shared…but the highlight was the service..!!! Oscar and Agneta were welcoming, positive and very professional. Did not feel we were in Norway…..but then the staff were not really Norwegian…!!! No comments on the prices…but everything in Bergen…or Norway for that matter is expensive. But the difference here is the warm... More

We visited here for lunch on our first day in Bergen. All seating inside, no outdoor or patio. They had a very small lunch menu with nothing I really wanted. I ended up ordering off the dinner menu Chicken Chow Mein and 1 Coke. I paid approx 250kr for one person. The positive was the amount of food. I probably... More

The staff were friendly and efficient, the decor is slightly over the top chinise themed. The koi carp is a nice touch and children like to feed them. On the whole slightly expensive for a Chinese but the food was nice.

Being in Bergen, wanted to visit a Chinese restaurant (had a positive experience of visiting Chinese restaurants in various European cities). Liked the atmosphere of the restaurant, good service waiters. But the kitchen of the restaurant was very are mediocre: soup in Sichuan was not tasty, like lamb with Chinese pepper sauce. Wife ordered soup with shrimp and pork and... More

Friendly staff. Rapid service (due to few guests - maybe) Four guests three different dishes. Pork in s&s sauce was just satisfactory. Chicken in cashew nut sauce tasteless. chcken and noodles ok. Been here many times before but this time not up to its best.

For a Chinese restaurant in Norway the food is good. Keep in mind that as with most Chinese restaurants most of the dishes have been "westernized", heavier in use of soy sauce (saltier), corn starch and sweet & sour everything. Fortunately this restaurant did not go too over board with the soy sauce or corn starch, but the funny thing... More

The food here is OK nothing special. One of the dishes we had was a bit gooey and sticky, but none of the food was bad.

The restaurant has a large carp pond in the middle of the restaurant - unfortunately it seems to encourage certain boisterous children to play around the pond - so definitely don't get the table near the pond. Good service - nice hot towel at the end. A shared beef, chicken and pork dish - tasty enough and very filling. Sweet... More

My boyfriend and I ate here in february. The atmosphere is ok, with nice chineese decoration. But this is definetly not the place to go if you want a romantic dinner, due to all the children running around screaming and playing. The food is terrible, and not especially cheap. It seems like they are using a frozen bag of vegetables... More
