Not very courteous Very small potions Very average taste Shrimp portion had hardly any shrimp in it Plum wine served in a fancy glass with possibly 10 ml in it When Bill came they charged an extra 14 euros as table charge ( coperto) ( 2 euros per person ) Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

Visited this restaurant tonight as we were in the area and thought chinese be nice after eating Italian food past couple days. BIG MISTAKE!!!! The outside of restaurant smelt funny. Given a menu there English wasn't great (understandable) so that made ordering difficult. I ordered beef curry and rice and my wife ordered sweet and sour chicken. Arrived 15 mins... More

Last night we returned after 6 years with a degree of trepidation borne of the negative reviews on here. We needn't have worried. There is a definite trend in the reviews which are 3 stars or below. From their comments I deduce they're the sort of people who: 1. Think a 'Chinese takeaway' at home tastes anything like real Chinese... More

Food was very average, portions were tiny, prices were ridiculous (2 euro charge each customer, 3.80 for a coke, 2 for a tiny bowl of white rice). Do yourself a favor, go get a nice pizza for 10 bucks that will fill you up and won't leave you with a feeling of having been ripped off.

We fancied something different for lunch and decided to pop into this restaurant which is near the Rialto bridge. Seriously I would give it s miss. The food was absolutely tasteless and the portion sizes small. I had the won ton soup for starters and it was actually like water with some lettuce and the fillings in the won tons... More

Call me crazy for wanting Chinese food while in Venice but I had been reading a book that gave me a craving. I saw a large group of Asians having lunch here so I gave it a try and was very pleased. Noticing one of the employees eating a large steamed bun (stuffed bread is what they call it) I... More

Dinner here was great!! Really tasty but the portion sizes were quite small, I think the menu options are designed for one person as apposed to putting in the middle and sharing. Great friendly service though, so nice to find some yummy Chinese!! And great wifi!!

We have eaten here a few times now. The chicken and sweetcorn soup is tasty as is the crispy duck. The Chinese beer is a good deal. You can sit inside or outside. Note there is a cover charge, but no service charge.

If you would like something else besides pasta I can really recommend this place. The staff is very friendly and they serve good quality Chinese dishes. We enjoyed it so much that we had to order more to try.

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
