We were out and about on Sabbath and found this place open so we went in and tried the food. We ordered fried rice and it was was very flavorful. The portions were big, enough for two people.

this is the first Chinese restaurant in Israel . it is located at the same address since 1958. In an environment where the average life of a restaurant is three or four years it should count for something. However the taste of the food (it was a quick business lunch so I settled for simple wonton soup and a chicken... More

I was surprised when I read some bad reviews about this restaurant in TripAdvisor. But, I'm glad I didn't have bad experience when I ate there. The restaurant stays in the 3rd floor so you need extra energy to get there. I think the restaurant runs by Chinese family, that's why the food taste good and authentic. And, they serve... More

This is the first time I give a 1 star review and this restaurant was so bad that it doesn't deserved my review. If you guys want to know how bad it is, simply read others people reviews because I'm simply too lazy to review it. Just don't go there !

Make sure to reserve places ahead of time: the place often fills up with Chinese tourists. Come when you can order the business lunch, a great saving.

We consider ourselves very fortunate that we escaped food poisoning and that is the only positive statement I can make about this visit. If we had eaten the uncooked, frozen and bleeding chicken wings we were served, the result could have been very different indeed. My wife, son, and daughter ordered two portions of chicken wings between them for starters,... More

We went here for lunch as a variation to the local food. We did not expect a great Chinese meal but did not meet any of our expectations. The restaurant is dingy and the food was poor. We ordered several dishes and none of them were enjoyable. The service was mediocre at best and the waitress was not open about... More

it's the worse experience i ever had in Jerusalem. we ordered a dish of toufu. I saw the dish coming out of kitchen, then the female manager just used a spoon to scoop up one third of proportion to another bowl, cause it's too much to serve the client! And, we are forced to pay 10% of service fee in... More

I went there with a group of friends because they chose the place. I love Chinese food as a general rule and am quite forgiving regarding it. The portions were large and the food was edible. There were very few other people there and I do not think that Shabat had anything to do with it. They were friendly enough... More
