“Best Chinese food in Milan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

TA advised us this restaurant in Milan. I never heard of it before, even though I'm in Milan quite often. It is located in a minor street in a residential part of the city, it may appear as nothing more than a common bar from the outside, and it is very informal inside, not even much room to sit. Me and my girlfriend were surprised of how such a place could have such a high rating on TA. The answer arrived when Monica served us the food. Only fresh ingredients, daily bought by the chef, with daily specialities (let Monica advise you!), excellent quality of food. I've never managed to feel comfortable again in any other Chinese restaurant in Italy, after eating there. Strongly advised!

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Me and my girlfriend when we travel we like to explore as much as we can the restaurants of each place. After searching a bit on Tripadvisor we found Kim Bar and we decided to try his chinese cuisine. We were totally satisfied. Great service and high quality food. You must try it!

“Excelent Real Chinese Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

The restaurant is small, cozy, well decorated and with a home environment, if your looking for a nice restaurant with incredible food this is the right place (if your looking for really fancy and expensive, is not the case). The menu has a great variety of authentic chinese food, and the woman will recommend each day what is fresh for the day. We took to beging a try-out of 4 start dishes, then soup and then 4 different dishes which we all shared (chinese style). The quality is great and as well as the service.

“A hidden (Chinese) gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

This is a very casual restaurant (used to be a coffee bar) run by a very nice Chinese family. There is a menu but don't bother: Monica (your host) will tell you what specialties the chef has prepared that day and it would be a mistake to order anything else! A real feast starts... Amazing nams and raviolis, exceptional fresh bamboo salad and mushrooms, spectacular fish and meat dishes... 4 of us shared some 14 plates, 4 cokes, large beer, 1 bottle of nice (cheap) Nebbiolo and great fruits (Chinese grapefruit) for roughly 100 euros. Great value, memorable food and family style service. We'll be back!!

“THE BEST in TOWN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

To everyone who loves true Cantonese food....this is IT! This HK authentic cook has retired from the fashionable Ta Hua restaurant and has decided to run his own place! Thank god!
Don't expect a fancy place, but do prepare your tummies for the most savory of dishes right from HK. A major plus is that he personally takes care of the meats and fish he'll buy and he proudly mentions that he will only buy at the Mercato Wagner, if u know what that means...
Try the HK flat noodles called Gong Chau gnau Ho, roast duck, daikon cakes, BBQ pork slices called Char Siu! If u like fresh fish ask for the crunchy turbot....
Make sure you phone Monica to book your table and ask what he's prepared...
