“Quiet Chinese”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

As a frequent visitor of the Princessa the sister restaurant of Turandot Furmanova I found some pluses and some minuses about this nicely decorated and quiet restaurant. The hygien standarts are higher but lacks the taste and the portions sizes and the prices are higher by some 70%.

“Chain of Chinese restaurants”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

There are several of these in town. Good food, good prices, but bear in mind the cooks are from Western China (and maybe Uighurs; some restaurants in the chain don't even carry pork dishes in the menu) so it can be rather different from Peking or Szechuan style.

“Turandot on Zharokov St”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Looks nice, but portions are small and are smaller if you order "to go", plus they include the price of paper/plastic boxes and utensils in your bill. The waitresses look very sad and kind of unhappy to see you. I think the whole concept of service is foreign to this restaurant. Don't dine there.

Reviewed May 9, 2012

Tasty and cheap chineese cuisine! In the restaurant on Zharokov street also is a great interior, IMO! After 18.00 need to book a table by the telephone ))

“=)”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

Really like this restaurant! As mostly chinees restaurants it is fit to family dinner and big friend groups - they prepare big portions. So you can order a variety of dishes, that all could taste it. I really like that they can serve spicy and not spicy meals, as you wish! The staff is always nice. Life music, VIP room for close celebration or business negotiations. Usually happen that restaurant is doing the best only the first years, but this one is always on the top (I go there from its openning!)!
