I travelled with my family to Helsinki and really excited to find good chinese food. We visited this restaurant 3 times and the service was bad all the times. Don't bother talk to the manager (happened to be the owner's son, a young lad) either. We did, and and this was the response we got: "If you don't like us, too bad".
Not to mention the last time we went, the waitress refused to provide my daughter with a high chair.

Ordered Peiking duck and sweet-sour soup. Peiking duck is pretty tasty, I think the price is about right in Helsinki. The soup though, is not good. A bit on the salty side, will skip.

The selection of lunch was a dissapointment, no spring rolls. Food was good. Nicely decorated and friendly service.

Nice setting and modern interior deserve this star. Food deserves loud "booo". Yes, it is well presented and service is great, but taste is just awful. Duck tasted (and looked like) turkey?!! Not to mention, that the whole dish was too salty by far. Never again
