“Good Chinese food, and it's not easy to find in France”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Our group considered the Chinese cuisine to be pretty genuine, a welcome relief after so many buffet-style second-rate Chinese restaurants elsewhere in France. Good value, attentive service.

“Just average...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We ate early at about 6:30pm and we were the only people the restaurant Restaurant was beautifully decorated with authentic Chinese interior. We started with a Thai beef salad which wasn't Thai at all. We are regular in Thailand and can say that: not spicy and with sweet peanut source on top. We also ordered Duck with pineapple and crispy beef. Service was good. As it should be when we were the only people there! Complementary cup of Chinese wine was interesting ( look in before drinking ;-)

Summing up, we probably wouldn't go here again in Chamonix with so many restaurants in the area, but that said, the food was standard and the decor was nice. It just gets an average review from us...but spending a lot of time in Asia may have affected our opinion of the authenticity of the food.

“Very Welcoming Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We were dying for some local Asian food after nearly a week in Chamonix, we were surely not dissapointed. The waitress recommended their house specials, peking duck and steam fish fillet which was both very delicious. We also ordered their spicy basil chicken and fried brocolli with garlic. The complementory Chinese Wine was a nice touch too ( don't forget to look at the bottom of the cup before you drink ). Service was also superb. Highly recommended.

“Excellent restaurant in Chamonix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I was touring with some guests the valley of Chamonix from December 25th to December 28th. We were staying in the center of Chamonix and by chance we found this restaurant as we arrived and very lucky that it was open for Chritmas day. we loved it, and came back several times during our stay. The food was excellent and very good value compare to the other restaurants in town, they also have a Brasserie restaurant right next door with tartiflette, fondue and all the regional dishes. What made us come back was the kindness of the team, we spent so much time laughing with the waitress Elisa and the owners, Aron and Agnes. I definitively recommend this restaurant. Great place !
