One of the good places to eat in Rio, great ambience, friendly staff. One of the few places that have a waiter that understands English in Rio.

We had quite high expectations for this place but unfortunately the food just wasn't quite up to par.

The atmosphere was great, the decor, a modern take on the typical Chiense theme. The staff, though way too many ( i think we counted about 25 for about 10 customers), was courteous and attentive.

The wine and water offer was extensive (about 7 vaierties of sparkling water alone).

The though food just wasn't all that. The radioactive orange, battered and deep fried chicken satay was….interesting. The crispy duck was a bit dry and greasy. The fish trio was slimy, over cooked and not all that flavourful and they left the scallop tails in the mix.

As contributor NickVC put it the "level was no higher than your average Euro Chinese take-out" but the prices were more like those of Mr. Chow.

The bar looked nice so maybe going for drinks would be the way to go, though the bright lighting may ruin any romantic mood if thats what you are looking for.

Enjoy!

Very impressive service (and in English at that) but every item we ordered was of a level no higher than your average Euro Chinese take-away, including a very radioactive/glow-in-the-dark bright orange sweet and sour pork :/

Use to be The Chinese restaurant in Rio. Kitchen needs improvement, 3 main courses very average and dry, one of them below all standards (wasn't charged). On the other hand the service is still 5*, welcoming and professional staff.
