“IT USED TO BE A GOOD CHINESE RESTAURANT. IT USED TO :(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

This place is okay, if you are looking for a quick lunch or dinner with quite low prices.

But it reallz changed a lot. 3 or 4 years ago you could get a very tasty meal, for example sweet and sour soup with lots of ingredients, nice look and good taste -- well, in the past year it got just a bowl of water with some shitake and almost no vegetables. They must make it out of a kind of powder, it doesn't look fresh and tastes like nothing.

Meat ... it depends, beef can be good, but ducks aren't soft, actually they can be very dry.

Staff could be nicer, they aren't unpolite, but they just don't really apprecciate you there.

P. S. This one is the first Shanghai restaurant, second, called Novi Shanghai (New Shanghai) is pretty much the same, but with newer interior and it is like 200 awaw from this one.

“Bad, bad experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2009

Typical Chinese restaurant, food tasted alright, but one of my friends had symptoms of mild food poisoning after eating - we even pondered calling an ambulance. One of my friends asked for an iced tea but she wasn't brought a can of iced tea as she expected, no - all she got was a small kitchen glass with iced tea on it! And the glass was half full! And... she was charged over €2.00 for it!! The Chinese ladies were rude when they discovered that we wanted to split the bill with different payment methods. We never went there again.
