It´s great to find a restaurant that does not serve the usual dishes you can expect in a Chinese restaurant. Of course, we had to try the crispy duck, which did not disappoint us. Actually, it was enough to satisfy the three of us. We will definitely be back and try some of the interesting dishes on the meny. I have no problems recommending this restaurant.

I've been to China! several times, and I have never been disappointed. They serve authentic Sichuan food, and I love their la zi ji (chili chicken), their suan cai yu (fish with pickled mustard greens), fish fragrant aubergines, tangcu paigu (deep fried ribs), shui zhu beef (water boiled beef - although it could be more heavy on the chilis). And their version of gan bian si ji dou (dry-fried beans) is addictive. It's is definitely not your average Swedish/Chinese restaurant, and I'm glad they threw away their Swedish adapted menu and kept only the true Sichuan menu when they moved from Hornstull to Ringvägen.

If the food is authentic Chinese, well, so is also the service. Sometimes very attentive, and sometimes very confused. Sometimes very smooth and friendly, and sometimes only effective, not friendly. The lady who seems to be the owner is probably the most confused, or at least confusing, of them all. She is eager to please, but gets too eager, which not seldom result in almost hysterical situations. And sometimes she forgets what you've ordered, and will be devastated when reminded.

But, if you are aware of that, you won't be disappointed. The food is great, and really worth waiting for!

Go eat at China! if you want really good Chinese food in Stockholm.

Hi,

I have eaten at China Restaurant before and it was fine. We recently went back and made a reservation and pre-booked crispy duck. The server sat us in the corner behind other tables and did not serve us for 45 minutes until we walked up to the bar to retrieve menus and order our meal. We will not allowed to split our bills properly and have been so disappointed we will not return and will have to find another place to have crispy duck..

I don't know how the previous reviewer could think this was expensive, I have been to China! several times and never paid more than 300 kr (most main dishes are between 100 and 200). The sichuan-dishes are very hot and very good, and the Peking duck is excellent (600 kr for four people) but has to be booked in advance. A non-typical Chinese restaurant for this part of the world and highly redommended!

About the positives: location is good, not in a major tourist area, very quiet, the interior is nice. The negatives: the staff is SLOOOW and do not speak English, the food is mediocre and pretty expensive (average dinner for the two of us was ~800 SEK), considering what you get for it.
