“Not bad. But is this enough?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The restaurant is a short walk from the central station in an area where tourists find very few interesting things, if any. So if you go there it is just for the restaurant.
When you enter you realize at once it is not the typical Chinese restaurant. Forget the usual stuff as Chinese red lamps and hot towels at the end of the meal. This Chinese restaurant is different. A modern internal décor with brick walls, small tree trunks hanging from the ceiling, small tables with simple tablecloths. A place far from a romantic spot.
If the interior design of the restaurant is different the menu takes you back to the typical Chinese restaurant. It preserves the common feature to all Chinese restaurants: it offers such a wide selection of dishes you wonder how they can guarantee a high level for all dishes. Prices are the average prices of Chinese restaurants: starters € 5, main dishes from € 7 to € 14, desserts (presented on a tray at the table) € 5. When we went the restaurant was full but we had the idea we had entered a food chain. The service was quick while other customers were waiting for us to free the table (it was Saturday). The quality of the food was not different from other Chinese restaurants.
We were twice asked if everything was fine but I don’t know if they were really interested to the answer (there were too many customers). A really positive note for those who disagree with the use of bottled waters: they serve tap water on request (and all tables took advantage of this opportunity).
Definitely not bad. But is this enough to appreciate a restaurant?

“Excellent Asian with a smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We had fabulous food with excellent service. We are not big lovers of Chinese food but do like other asian foods however we found this food to be very nice, probably not typical Brisbane Chinatown style if that's what you are after. The food had a much more modern take on it and the decor of the restuarant was extremely nice (not typical Chinese decor if that's what you are after). Would highly recommend. The waiter and owner found out that we were Australian and then become our best friends for the night.

“A pleasant experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel that we were staying at. It was not advertised but referenced after we asked for a decent Chinese restaurant. We were told at first that many Chinese restaurants in Milan were considered "bad" but this particular came up to par with Milanese people. We weren't quite sure what to take away with us so we just took a punt and went.

It was a pleasant surprise! The food had nice flavours and the food was presented well, and it showed given the crowds that go there. We booked but I don't think they nit we went warranted it even thoug it got busy after we arrived. We were also not made to leave even when people were waiting.

Overall, a very pleasant experience and would go again if in Milan.

“Best Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Loved, loved, loved it. Great service, fantastic food with not so expensive bill at the end of it. Will return again when I'm back in Milan and not for just 1 evening. Won't even bother to search out other Chinese Restaurants it was that good and Chinese Food is my favourite and I've been to alot of great restaurants in Europe. Would rate it right up there with The Best.
