I really loved the feeling you get when you sit in this cute small restaurant. It feels like being at someones house and they cook the best food all by themselves!! It is incredibly yummy ! I love it. Plus, they have VEGAN food.. which is a miracle for a country such as france !

A very small restaurant that resides almost in the heart of Valenciennes. I was the first to enter this evening and that's for me always a doubt: should I go or not! Well it has not disappointed me at all. Friendly welcome by the owner and more than happy to translate the menu. Lovely food, well prepared in small dishes... More

We just wanted a snack and came across this place by accident, the waiter/owner was very good to explain the menu and the set menu options to us. We opted for the set menu of 6 gyoza (as we know them in the UK), 2 spring rolls and rice. They are all home made and delicious. The set menu also... More

Having read all the good reviews on tripadvisor and having a craving for Chinese food I sent my husband here. I was sadly disappointed, the noodles in chicken soup were very bland and the chicken brochettes reminded me of the hideous curries I used to cook as a student, meat + curry powder + zero finesse, I failed to finish...

Dear Madam, Thank you for the advice you have deposited on tripadvisor! I am sorry that our meals was unable to satisfy you, but, as you conclude yourself with acuity, "it's no doubt a matter of taste." Obviously, all tastes are in nature, and I am convinced that our cook can not satisfy the palate of everybody. However, there has... More

A simple and small restaurant where you can eat fresh-cooked noodle. Every time I go there (mostly late in the evening around 21:30-22:00 which is really late for a restaurant in the city) the owner kindly prepare me a special "vegan dish" which is not officially on his menu card. His knowledge of chinese culture and cooking is always a... More

It is very good bar and easy to find out. Many kinds of food can be able to satisfy your flavor. There's noodles has some Chinese flavor which mixs fresh scent and a little bit spicy. And it is a big amazing thing that the boss with two doctor degree is a teacher.
