This was a real find in Geneva - good portion sizes for a reasonable price served hot and after which you felt full. We enjoyed our sweet and sour chicken and the service was prompt. It is not located in the best street but appearances can deceive! A good Chinese restaurant.

Looking for a Chinese restaurant that served duck with pancakes. Tried this one not far from the train station, we had the Peking duck (68 CHF for 2). The duck came out with the pancakes, we also had a soup (too much MSG), then another two dishes a sweet and sour plus a chilli dish. There was certainly enough food,... More

I did not enjoy this place at all, unfortunately. Despite the fact that the restaurant was almost empty, we had to wait endlessly to be served and, even worse, I and my three friends were all served in a different moment meaning that we never ate together, something I cannot stand in a service. I would not go back, sorry.

After a management change there is now a buffet. Choice of all you can eat of 1 soup; 2 appetizers; 4 main dishes and 4sides; 1 desert. All at an affordable price. Presented portions are not too big, so there is a constant refresh that ensures freshness. Service is attentive and ensures your table is free of finished dishes. All... More

Portions were decent sized for the price. Flavours were lacking and its truly a fast food place. Service was okay for the price and quality is acceptable for an occasional grub. For short trips and okay budget many other options can be considered.

I have always gone there with friends when I studied in Geneva. This place has never let us down. I went back to Geneva again in 2015 and the food still taste the same and remain the same price. We had duck with noodle soup. Duck was delicious but noodle was soso. Another dish that we always ordered was no.... More

This restaurant is useful for quick and casual lunch or dinner but that's it. However, It is worth mentioning that service quality has improved resently and we do not see rude waiters any more. Also, Sunday dim sum is very good. I do not mind to return to this restaurant on Sunday but on other days, there are many more... More

Across the way from McDonald's, small Thai restaurant called Boky Sushi - not sure where the Sushi comes from, maybe from a previous time. Food is very good. Tiny restaurant. Seems like many locals come for take-away. Prices 20-24 euros. Try the duck noodle soup. Huge amount of very fresh duck. Been here a few times over the years when... More

The food was palatable, not outstanding, not poor, but okay. Our food had a freshness about it as the veggies were all crisp. The shrimp dim sum were good, not as fresh though. For a decent place to chat with a friend and enjoy a decent meal I would say it makes the cut. The service, though friendly was a... More
