“perfect food, service and decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

hidden gem with a perfect style. The food was great. The best (homemade) dumplings I have ever had. The service was just perfect, informal and cosy. The decor was a nice mix of chinese and finnish: beatiful and intimate.

“The Best Chinese Restaurant in Finland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

It is rarely this easy to review a restaurant. This small place offers simply the best Chinese food I've ever tasted anywhere. Granted, my experiences are limited mostly to Finland, but this was a much more memorable experience than my short foray into a highly praised Chinese restaurant in London. That was great, grand, wonderful, this was divine.

I was in a hurry and could only try their eggplant dish, and it was the best eggplant I've ever tasted in any cuisine style. Time stopped for a moment. Wow.

I will decinitely go here again, whenever I get the chance. Five stars, easily.
