Qualitiy medium, quantity very poor, and meat about 15grs (!!!) per meal - but price flying high in the sky! And the dinner was delivered 40 minutes later than the appointment. The worst take away ever ... Do not touch this restaurants take away !

The food is very good. I am very pleased. Genuine Wok dishes such as in China, the vegetables were fresh, the curry was very spicy. Prices are reasonable for the location in the old town. This authentic good Chinese food, I can only recommend it! Was very pleasantly surprised. Come back again.

Small authentic Chinese restaurant on a side street near Fraumumster. Chicken and vegetables were excellent. Service was great even after they brought the wrong dish to start with, they more than made up for it. Prices are high, 90 CF for dinner with wine, but that's just Zurich. I'd recommend it if you're in the mood for Chinese food in... More

Easter weekend, all surrounding restaurants are closed, but this one is open. The food was fine, so enjoyed getting to know this place. English is the official language in this restaurant. Had the day menu, well garnished for a nice low price. So, this restaurant gets in my list :)

Was calling at night - but one day in advance - to book the crispy duck. The lady at the phone told me was too late and would not been possible to prepare it. OK. Then I book just a table at 20.30. Too late? Once there we had a weird feeling. Restaurant was empty, just the four of us... More

Excellent food! Crispy duck was superb. Owned and run by a Chinese family. Atmosphere typical Chinese kitsch and owners wife typical fast Chinese woman. Go for the food and enjoy!

I stayed in Storchen, my dad love chinese food and its very hard for me to pick one or go so far to get a nice decent chinese food. So i just sat down and prepared to be scammed. I really do. And I was being overly negative over this small restaurant. I agree this restaurant located so strategic and... More

On a little cut from the Storchengasse near to the Bahnhofstrasse there is a wondderful retaurant. When you enter you feel as if you are in China. The food is very good even for children. The retaurant is managed by the Liu-Min family who help you to choose the food you like so there is no chance that you will... More

Being a huge Chinese food fan, I have walked pass this restaurant several times, checked out their menu outside- and made a pass. As from outside, it looks more like a tourist trap, especially in such a location. However, we were invited there last week and I realized what a big mistake I have made. The dishes are more on...
