“What a joke!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Visited this dump of a restaurant on a Monday, when other asian restaurants are closed.

I ordered a duck and a soup. The soup tasted tasted really bad and the duck tasted like the soup.
The people recommending this place and saying it has authentic chinese food got a really wierd understanding of what authentic chinese food is.
Will never go back.
The only positive was the pricing on the wine and beer

“Swedish - chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This Sw-Chinese restaurant doesn´t offer any big surprises. You will find an ordinary Chinese menu. But: the food served here is _very_ good and the people working there are very friendly and nice. I would recommend their springrools!

“Excellent chinese dining in one of Gothenburgs oldest chinese restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Was there with whole family and friends including a chinese guest. There were other chinese people eating there and this restaurant is known to serve true chinese food and not the kind that has been adapted to european taste. They even have a part of the menu which is only in chinese, what does that tell you? Ask for a translation of what is on the chinese menu, it had more interesting dishes on it.

We ordered a total of 15 dishes including appetizer and dessert, everything was very good. Service was fast and attentive. The place is a bit small but cosy.
