Disgusting, arrogant, attitude to the old Asian man on entering and during the time there! Disgusting hygiene, therefore didn't eat! Discussed in myself, that I gave an empty restaurant the benefit of the doubt, on a Saturday night in Rome! AVOID!

We wandered into Lon Fon by accident as we were staying in the hotel next door. What happenstance! I cannot recommend it enough. We ordered chicken with taste sauce and chicken with pure sauce plus spring rolls and another kind of dumpling, if I recall?...More

The Lon Fon looked so promising, nice decor, spacious, and two older gentlemen who reminded us of Confucius - this had to be good! Unfortunately, once past the reasonably good hot and sour soup, everything else was bland with very little taste. Over the past...More

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
