I was in this restaurant in end of May 2013, with my wife.
As indicated by others reviews, food is not very good, portions are very small and all together overpriced. It's a pity that I did not check the reviews before entering the restaurant. Service is very very slow; even that the place was half empty we had to spend almost 2 hours for a 2 dishes meal. The worst part however, was at the end: the bill included a salad that we didn't ask for. After explaining to the person in charge in a very polite manner, they refused to deduct the amount charged for the salad that we didn't ask, and responded to us in an insulting manner. The result was a very unpleasant evening. My recommendation: avoid this place.

having just moved from down the road in les houches to chamonix, myself, boyfriend and our two moving helpers decided to nip out for a bite to eat, after longing to try this place ever since we moved here in 2011, we sat and waited with anticipation, and thats where the pleasant evening ended, waited for 15 mins to get a drink order taken [baring in mind we were one of two tables, to about 12 staff] we then had to wait 15 mins to get drinks, and then wait half an hour to get our food orders in, as the restaurant got a bigger table in we started to feel ignored,40 mins later we got not so fried but microwaved rice and pork that felt like you were chewing bullets, and generally some more watered down mush, as my boyfriend and i have both worked in hospitality for years him being a head chef, we understood sometimes things go wrong, we spoke to a waitress, who didnt look like she cared one bit and went on to argue with us that there was nothing wrong with the food but yes the service is rubbish, we made it clear the food wasnt great either to have her merely walk away. At 100 euros for food that hadnt been touched i feel robbed and out of principle will never eat there again, DONT GO!!! WHAT A BIG, BIG DISSAPOINTMENT!!!!

This place is awful. I ate there in 2012 and it was decent hence returning tonight. But, maybe something has changed because the food, service and wine was just so bad. Firstly, the food. A tasteless hot and sour soup, a rubbery 'crispy' duck, stodgy Thai fried rice and sweet and sour pork that was like rubber bullets in a sickly red gruel. We had a bottle of 30 euro Fleurie that was so bad we didn't finish it. The service was slow, forgetful and indifferent. The bill was 150 euro for 3 of us. Probably 149 euro overpriced......

We have some of the best choices in London. The menu is not extensive but that's fine. The dim sum and Vietnamese spring rolls were fantastic, the main courses outstanding. If you are used to eat as much as you can Chinese buffets like the Brits love and I hate, this is not for you. If you want excellent quality you will love it.

Not our best Chinese dining experience. We were greeted by accommodating staff but promptly seated on top of the table next to us, couldn't squeeze out to use the restroom we were so packed in. All other tables were brought water and prawn crackers to munch on prior to ordering. Sadly, we were forgotten. When we asked for them, we were told okay, yet they never arrived. Asked again, still nothing. Finally our food arrived and was tiny portions and terribly cooked... I ordered chicken in sweet and sour and, even though the menu didn't mention fried (while other dishes clearly stated this as the cooking method) mine was fried and, sadly, this was all I could taste. And for €16?!?! Was NOT worth the money spent. Such a disappointment when we only had so many nights to try the fabulous restaurants in this mountain town. Save yourself the disappointment and go elsewhere.
