“Oasis amongst Pizzarias”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

After 15 days of breads and pastas and pizzas this was like hitting an oasis. Well not that i do not enjoy italian cuisine but it was just getting too much for my palate. So this place served very nice chinese food. I loved their sweet and sour pork and their fried rice. Their fried dim sums are very very bad so do not even try it. We had food here thrice and i have to say that the taste differs from day to day even on the same dish.

“Slightly Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

The food was tasty, the portions very small verses the price, and if you do not speak Italian, well! The staff was accommodating, food served quickly but if you are in a hurry, lunch or dinner expect to be there for at least 1.5 to 2 hours.

“Not brilliant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We opted for a Chinese while in Florence to experience the difference. The service wasn't great, drinks took a while to be served and after ordering our food it arrived in dribs and drabs. We finally received all of our courses about 15 minutes later. The food was of a good quality, different to what we have at home in England. The food is also affordable but quality of service lacking

“Quite Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We ordered the noodles with seafood on a hot plate and a dish with beef, as well as a carafe of white wine. Everything was good and it was economical, coming out about 22 euros total. The restaurant is quite big and decorated very well. Service was good and friendly.
