As much as I love Italian, we stop at this Chinese place for some different. The price is much cheaper than an Italian meal and we get a totally different vibe. The spring rolls are great as well as the sweet and sour pork, pork and peppers, spicy chicken, and shrimp fried rice. The check is a fraction of our... More

If you long for Chinese food while in the midst of all the Tuscany food, this is where you go. The place has 2 parts, Chinese and Japanese (separated) so you can choose. Centrally located with good food

We got back very tired from a day trip to Cinque Terre and decided to have some quick Chinese takeout. Cognizant that Florence is not known for Chinese food, we had very low expectations. The fried rice and the Peking Duck was surprisingly a cut above just average. My assessment is this place is acceptable if you are hankering for... More

Being in Italy for 2.5 weeks, my hbd and I really were craving some Asian food with vegetables. This place really hit the spot and was a good break from pizza and pasta. It also ended up a lot cheaper than many of our meals in Italy. They surprisingly had quite a few Traditional Chinese dishes like Mapo tofu, and... More

Tried them twice. Take out hot and sour soup was alright however twice I had to spit huge pieces of chicken tendon and foot out. Tried to dine in but awful service. We were "greeted" by a young man who i will call Emo since he acted as though he was at a funeral - sullen, hunched over and basically... More

This restaurant is horrible. The guy that sat us was unfriendly and pouty. Waited 15min for our server. She took drink order and then never returned. Someone else delivered drinks. After another 15min we flagged down the pouty guy that sat us. He seemed annoyed with having to take order. We watched as three tables that were sat after we... More

This is my second visit, and the waitress disappoints me! I order a dish of beef, but there is a hair in the dish, beef combined with hair! The waitress said there is no women in the kitchen, and looked at me! She meant the hair is from me! What a funny thing! I don't recommend this restaurant!!! So bad... More
