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.

The Restaurant is centrally located with a modern decoration and good lighting as well as air conditioning. Part of the dinning room is built on top of an aquarium which giver a special feeling to the restaurant.

Had lunch there on Sept 14th. Great change of pace. Being from San Francisco the food was surprisingly good.We were able to get our rice fix.Ordering was funny unless you spoke Chinese or Italian. Anyway all the dishes were very tasty.
