This place is awesome! Food is delicious, large portions, fast service! Make reservations because this place fills up fast. Every night I've eaten there it is super busy!!

Based on the other positive reviews here, I think I might've just gotten the wrong main dish. The hot and sour soup appetizer was delicious (recommended!), but the sweet and sour chicken and noodles both fell flat for me. They were edible but the flavours weren't great. That said: value is good! I'm a super cheap student (I never go... More

This restaurant is not only the most expensive Chinese restaurant but also one of the worst I have been. Two plates (chicken and beef), two small bowls of plain, steamed rice, one beer and one glass of apple juice cost 51 euros. The quality of the food was borderline edible. We could not finish the food. If this had been... More

I have been there many times. Although the taste of the food can be further improved, it is a very nice choice for having Chinese food in Lausanne. Recommended!

The restaurant has been recommended by a former colleague of mine. And I must admit it was definitely worth to go there. Although the place is not stylish at all, the service was super friendly, it was all clean and the food was a piece from heaven! We had dumplings, crispy chicken and some other stuff I don't remember. The... More

Been there on a business dinner. Interior is very basic, tables are long and you are sited beside others, so privacy is not an option. Service was fast and accommodating although the waiter didn't understand English or French (right off the boat). Food was very good, and in large quantities. All in all enjoyed it very much.

Recommanded if you are willing to eat not too long at an affordable price. Main cooking style is Sechuan cuisine.

Delicious food at a great price! Large portions which are perfect for sharing :) Not a fancy place but good quality food. Space is small so reserve or prepare to wait a while.

Good food, quick service. The interior is like a Chinese restaurant from 25 years ago in most countries and like they do in China they may place you next to other people you don't know to fill up all the spots. They can, because it gets really busy and noisy in a good way usually. There is a variety of... More
