A hidden gem in Stockholm. Very authentic Chinese vegetarian restaurant. Although not many options but the menu is sufficient for a small restaurant. The foods were delicious, spicy and flavorful. If one is looking for the 'wok hei' (breath of the wok) cooking technique... this...More

Fresh, high quality food. Delicious chinese cooking, spicy and flavorful. Recommended for non vegetarians. Try especially pistachio/cardamom soya-based 'ice cream'. Good service. Small, but cozy, hole in the wall. May be difficult to seat large parties. Book in advance for dinner.

Delicious soy and tofu plates, quite spicy. Friendly staff but not very cosy atmosphere. A bit too expensive.

This was a recommendation of a local and I loved the food (I am not a vegetarian). Make sure you bring enough time and it is certainly recommended to make a reservation (small place).

This place is very good. Initially it seemed a bit basic, but when the food came out it was super tasty. We were a party of 4, so ordered 4 dishes to share and had some left over to take out. I’m not vegan, but...More

Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost
looks too good to be true. It has the winning
combination of a central location, tranquility, and
beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and
eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s
most sought-after place to live. If walking through
this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy
tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s
