The mixed starters were clearly frozen and can only be described as abysmal. The dumplings were marginally better but again frozen. The stand out dish was the paprika pork which with the fried rice was really delicious. They need to move away from the frozen food and stick with dishes freshly prepared as these are so much better.

Menus are in English as well, and staff spoke English. Staff were friendly and we got a window table. The mains we ordered were nice, and the duck we had to start was fantastic. It was all reasonably priced and I would return.

Simple and good - that's a quick resume of our visit to this restaurant. Good starters, good entrees, everything well prepared. Only service is a bit slow, even on a Monday evening with 4 tables occupied. But food comes very fresh. Not expensive at all.

It's our first night in Munich and after a week of German food we were ready for something else. We saw this as we were walking away from the Christmas Market toward our hotel. We love Chinese food and unable to read reviews with no wifi we chanced it. Turned out to be a great decision. The restaurant is on... More

It's loud. Service is slow - at least in the evening. Entrees were very good - I recommend the duck. Their rice was surprisingly, not good - not sticky. The steamed dumplings appetizers were very good. I was there with someone from Shanghai and someone from Hing Kong and they both thought the food was good.

We were in Munich for the Oktoberfest, and wanted a light meal in the evening, when we chanced upon this place. Good clean, and fast service. Food was simple with ample choices. We ended up,going 2 evenings in succession,as there were no descents restaurants in the vicinity.

We went to this restaurant at 21.30, they welcomed us and put on a great spread. There was 8 lads, well behaved I might add...The Chinese beer was cold and refreshing, quite different to the steins at the festival, which are heavy and cumbersome. We had a vegetarian with us, who was well catered for. Great service and English spoken.

Service: extremely rude, if you ask them what the good dishes are, they'll tell you 'everything here is good'. Definitive sign of terrible food, you should bail. Food: not authentic and terrible. We ordered 4 dishes, the only decent one was the noodles, which were basically the noodles you can order from any to-go Chinese restaurant. One of our dishes... More

The waitress/boss treated us very well the food was great. Sweet and sour pork was crunchy and not soggy. Beancurd was tasty and you can taste... More

Food is fine, setting good. Staff attitude is bad. When we arrived after 2 pm for lunch, the restaurant was pretty empty. We asked to be sitted closer to the window. The waiter refused showing us the Table at the third row. I have asked why, he said that all good tables were reserved, but patrons arriving were never asked... More
