I love a good Chinese food. But this is just not it. I will carry the taste of the vinegar in their sweet and sour source for the day. They drowned fish in it and it tasted just that. The spring rolls were bland. Gamberini -not fresh. If that is Nr.14th restaurant in Padua, I feel sorry for their inhabitants... More

Best springrolls I've ever eaten. Both the ones with meat and the veggie ones. We will defenately come back if we ever visit Padova.

This Chinese restaurant is definitely above average. The minute you walk in the door you know that your entering a special restaurant. The decor is modern and the floor covers a gigantic fish tank. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and professional. We ate there on a Sunday night and by 7:00 PM it was full. We... More

The food was good but not traditional chinese. There are many items on the menu that you will find only in Italy like fried spaghetti. We ate well. All of the food was fresh and the boys enjoyed the sea food including the prawns, squid and octopus. I really enjoyed the green beans and cauliflower. The atmosphere was great and... More

I was a student in Venice and Padua was a short and cheap train journey away. This Chinese restaurant was our favourite place to go to eat in Padua. Lovely restaurant and really reasonably priced food and good portions. They made customised dishes for us that weren't on the menu. Only downside is this place is so popular you need... More

With Chinese food I am always hesitant. But this was a real find. Goodness. Dishes, richness of China beautifully cooked. Also nice environment with sensational catwalk on the floor with aquarium. By return.

Now, as someone who knows Chinese food very well, I have to say that this restaurant has an edge on all the other places I had Chinese at in Italy. I could rate it one step up from all the other restaurants however still a step down from a good one in China. The general taste of the food is... More

Chinese cuisine, no strange Japanese combo. Costs around 15€ to dine there (20-25€ if you wan to get stuffed with like 6 dishes). Clean environment and nice interior design, friendly efficient staff that understands Italian perfectly. Great variety in the menu with different types of duck recipes (not just Pekin style), various types of dumplings and lots of choice in... More

I'm flabbergasted! On our first visit we were so impressed with impeccable food and attentive service, we decided to repeat our pleasurable experience. I cannot believe the difference! The second visit was a copy of the first, except my wife's food included several chicken bones. She wished that I didn't complain, but I just had to say something to the... More

This was one of the best meals that we had in Padua/Padova. The entrance to the restaurant is very unique. The food was good and it was nice to try a non Italian meal as a change of pace.
