3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Very nicely decorated restaurant with a glass walkway displaying live carp swimming underneath. We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel Concierge. As expected prices were steep but the corresponding portion sizes were not so big. The chili beef was good but the sauce served alongside it had an overpowering taste of stock cube. The quality of the meat on... More

Yes its pricy, but a peking duck is a treat. The peking duck was a menu, i had springrolls, dumplings the duck and desert.... More

My family and I had lunch at this Chinese restaurant. Already at the entry the staff was friendly and found us a cozy table. We took the pekin duck and it was really good. The only thing which could be better is the starters, they were fresh but as you took them out of the bamboo basket, they fell apart.

Really good food, and very well presented. We ordered tea and we got our own teapot with subtle superb flavors, they even came to our table to top our teapots up with hot water! The service was fast but this was maybe partially due to the fact that Tuesday nights aren't very busy. The only setback was the portion size... More

We went for a birthday and this is one of the more authentic Chinese restaurants we have seen in Switzerland. Quality of food and selection is good. It is somewhat pricey though the size of the dishes is very good (we didn't, for example, have a main fish each but shared a couple of dishes) the crispy duck is also... More

Finally, a Chinese restaurant in Lausanne that has invested money and time in its ambience. The restaurant is located in the Place du Chauderon, not the nicest place in Lausanne and probably one of the most difficult ones to park, but acceptable. As you approach the Place, you see the restaurant on the ground level and think to yourself “Mmm..looking... More

We had a family dinner there, all dishes were good, but the service wasn't up to our expectations. Most of the waiters/waitresses don't speak French, they don't even understand it. It is kind of embarrassing to have to wait for the one French speaking waiter just to order a bottle of water!

Must say this Chinese restaurant is the best I have ever tried. The Beijing duck is outstanding and the decor or the restaurant with fish swimming below your feet is amazing for children. A masterpiece.
