I've been hearing about this place for quite some time. A good vegan friend of ours recommended this place over a year and a half ago. I was very close to ordering a delivery, but cancelled at the last moment. Yesterday, I've finally had the pleasure to try it out. At glance, while walking into the restaurant, it was packed, which is always a good sign. Lots of foreigners as well as natives, Chinese and Americans, Israelis and Africans. We sat at the garden, which was quite nice. The place isn't fancy, and the atmosphere is more of solitude when sitting outside. The menu, although pretty basic, offers many choices. Pork, chicken, beef, tofu, seafood and goose are prepared in many ways, like bamboo shoot sauce or oyster sauce. Starters are mainly comprised of soups, egg rolls, wan tan(wonton), etc'. I have to mention the vegetarian egg rolls which were amazing(sets of 2), and the beef wan tan. We've tried some classic spicy beef szechuan, honey glazed pork, home made tofu, pecan rice, and it was all fresh and tasted excellent! The portions are very big, and 2 people can easily share dishes. We also went for Thai Singa beer which is quite known, and even more popular, the Japanese Asahi beer. For desert, I ordered a fried banana, which was one of the best I've ever had. One comment though, the food as good as it was, had too much salt in it. Otherwise, the experience would have been perfect. And the price? around 30$ per person, which is quite cheap for all the food we've had. The service was very good when it came to our specific waitress. When she was gone, we had no one to turn to. We enjoyed immensely and would definitely come back. The restaurant is located next to the new central bus station in Tel Aviv, which is in the south part of the city. I would recommend taking a cab or a bus, and continue on foot as it's very close.

This is a nice little restaurant, great service and good food.
We ate there 9 people an all of us enjoyed our food.
Prices are reasonable and portions are large.
Service was attentive and not pushy. We were "warned" not to order a dish per person since they are pretty big, which was nice of the waitress.
The area in which the restaurant is in is not the best, in the south of tel aviv near the new central bus station, but no problem at all .
There is a nice "garden" in the back of the restaurant, covered and closed, I recommend sitting there.

We came into this cozy little place on a cold day and were greeted with a complimentary pot of tea and two little cups, just as they do in the U.S.

The waitress was friendly and accommodating, just lovely.
The food was delicious and even included typical Chinese veggies and not just carrots, peppers and cabbage as is the case in most Chinese restaurants in Israel.

We were also given a yummy complimentary dessert, which was placed on our table with a smile.
The prices are extremely reasonable.

This is one place we'll go back to.

My family keep visiting this restaurant every other month, and we keep coming back.
The food is very good and the dishes are large enough.
The atmosphere is nice and quiet, there is plenty of parking near by.
