“Nothing Special , basic like Supermarket Chinese, disapointing !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Living in Lugano finding a decent Chinese restaurant with good food that doesnt break the bank is hard to find.
So we decided to try out this restaurant about half an hour from Lugano.
The food was very disapointing and I dont think we would make the effort to go again ( we do however love the Pizza place a bit further down the road, best Pizza we have had and fab prices).
We are not food snobs in anyway, just enjoy chinese food but it was no different than eating a ready made Migros meal !
Service was super fast, food arrived in ten minutes after ordering.
The staff were so nice and friendly, they even gave the children a gift when we left.
The place is like an upmarket cafe with table cloths and a few lanterns, pretty basic but had the food been good I wouldnt have cared
It was busy with the locals, but most of them seemed to be eating spaghetti !

“good food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

Decent Chinese food, good service in this family restaurant 20 mins from Lugano on the lake. Unbeatable prices, super value, family-run business. We were never disappointed.
