“Good Average Restaurant”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Fourth night in Munich we did not want to walk far, conveniently opposite our hotel the Hilton. The restaurant is not easy to view from the outside due to the opaque windows, but this makes it secluded once inside.
This is a large restaurant which was more than half full for a Saturday night with a number of Chinese people eating in there – always a good sign. The menu is pretty extensive with many dishes that you would not normally see on a standard Chinese restaurant menu.
Our starters came with a big gap between them. Whilst this is unusual in other restaurants, for anyone that has eaten in China this is standard. The mains did however arrive together and the whole meal and evening was very pleasant. Service is good and its great value for money.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Pros:
- they're open until fairly late
- large selection of seemingly authentic Chinese food
- service was fine

Cons:
- we had:
- sizzling lamb or something on a hot plate: tasted just like the food in all the other Asian restaurants in Germany, maybe with a little bit of variation in the ingredients, but the same sauce (i.e. same taste!)
- wanton noodle soup was very bland
- tofu pot thing: again just tasted like they used the same sauce as all the other places
- price wasn't so cheap, more than 10 EUR for a bland noodle soup is a bit much I thought

All in all, nothing special, I'm sure there are better places to eat at in Munich. I don't recommend this place.

“Great dim sums!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

I've been there many times both on business and with the family and i was never disappointed. Dim Sums are really superb. Chinese fondue is great too. Staff is welcoming and efficient. There is a lot of room in this restaurant, so it is no problem to book large tables. Strongly recommended!
