They serve really good food, and the ambience is good too. However, I find it hard to recover because of the salt and other taste fortifiers. Our kids love it...

This is the only Chinese restaurant nearby Gex area, so not much choice. The place is nice and tidy. The service is very good and waiters are always extremely pleasant. The interiors are good, especially sunny in the summer. It's the old train station building, has it's charm. The food really depends for what you choose. Spring rolls for example are much below standard, and they even call it with another name. On the other side the noodles are excellent (especially those with veggies) and as well the Cantonese rice, very good. The cook can be too sweet when serving dishes with meat (like the orange duck or the ananas chicken). The courtesy and speed for the take-away are excellent. 10% discount on the take-away it's a good point as prices in this area are high, but for 2 people eating well you will spend around 30 Euro. I would say three balls OOO+ like not getting the fourth but near. Afterall spring rolls are the flag of a good chinese restaurant, so is quite disappointing when they are missing or bad. (Caveat: what they call spring rolls - rouleau de printemps are a cold dish. The pates de l'imperateur are the most similar thing they have, although they are really dirrerent in size and taste (again too sweet) and they contain meat -which shouldn't be there for the 'real' spring-rolls).
