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.

We came for the special Peking Duck Menu consisting of a soup, spring roll, raviolis, Chinese salad followed by duck and pancakes. Everything was very delicate and tasty. A desert completed the menu. Excellent quality in the food, presentation and service. The décor in this restaurant is totally different to the décor in most other Chinese restaurants and just for... More

Before going to this restaurant I checked the various review here on tripadvisor. Some were complaining about the service. I can say, at least for my experience, that they were wrong. The restaurant has a very nice interior, it has a very refine atmosphere. I was very impress by the nice aquarium at the entrance, with a little waterfall and... More
