“Best Chinese restaurant in Copenhagen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

I will make this real easy for you. You want authentic, cheap and unpretentious Chinese food in Copenhagen, this is it. Book in advance, and be prepared to listen to loud Chinese regulars and deal with hurried, but polite service. It is absolutely perfect. And the food is outstanding.

“Awesome food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

I was a bit skeptic about the restaurant due to its location, and the interiors are also a bit strange to someone that is not used to Chinese restaurants. The menu was with pictures, but 4 different beefs with different Chinese names were also confusing.

Extremely kind waitress explained the differences between the sauces and we ordered 3 dishes.

One of the best meals ever! The food is prepared with a lot of skill (you can see the cook preparing the food). Service is very fast. And the food is delicious! Price was WAY below what you would pay in an average restaurant in Copenhagen!

The only thing that was slower was waiting for the bill, but then again after such a great meal, we werent really in the mood to move that fast anyways.

A must try while in Copenhagen

“Excellent food, Hong Kong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

The food was very tasty and served large portions. It was welcome after a few days of pastries, breads and pickcle herrings. The staff were very polite and the price was great for the quality and quantity of food we got. Well worth eating at this restaurant.
