A cut above most Balkans Chinese restaurants

The best thing I can say about this restaurant is that, while the food is not very Chinese, it is at least better than most Chinese restaurants in the former Yugoslavia. There is actually some taste and spice to their food, unlike most where the predominant flavor is salty. The food comes out... read more

Short Story: It is not even close to Chinese food, as in it is worse than bad Chinese food. Save your money, time, and appetite; go somewhere else (unless you hear they fired their chef/cook). Long (detailed) Story: Went there because the place next door was closed and I regret it even as I write this. The place is well... More

Without doubt the worst "Chinese" restaurant we have ever eaten in. Appalling service. We had not finished our starter when the main course was served. Our waitress could be heard shouting loudly at the chef in the kitchen Food was appalling & the bill was expensive by local standards. Avoid at all costs.

THEY SERVE THE BEER WHICH IS MIXED SOME PORTION OF WATER. Outstandingly poooooooor foods for the world's craziest price range. The restaurant have four star sign on the front door but I'm pretty sure that this place is one of the worst chinese restaurant (I'm sorry but i don't even want to recognize them as a chinese restaurant). WORST WORST... More

The only Chinese thing about this restaurant is the name. Food is lousy - no matter what you order, you always get the same mix of vegetables, and it doesn't taste remotely Chinese. I've heard that you can judge the quality of a restaurant by the number of customers sitting in it at any given time. Well, this place is... More

Fantastic cuisine is extremely friendly service meal will leave you in deep memory. To be honest there I'm not so sweet eaten Chinese cuisine in the Balkans! A place that you must visit if you are around! So good that I will come back to Podgorica just for that restaurant!

If you are in Podgorica and craving Chinese food- do not go to this restaurant! Dishes are edible, but definitely not Chinese. There are so many other (local) restaurants where you can have a great meal, so do not waste your time (and money) on this one.

I went there despite all bad reviews. Besides décor, there is nothing, but disgrace to Chinese cuisine. Ordered a few dishes Spring rolls - it was something between Mexican burrito and the local food called popeci. My son ordered sesame chicken and we asked for sweet orange sauce. First our waiter has asked us "What color should this sauce be?"... More
