It a novelty to find Chinese food in the heartland of the Nordics. Something different from the daily fare. Of course do not expect the huge servings and numerous dishes you get in a China Tour. This is a Scandinavian Chinese cuisine.

I would not recommend the food, the atmosphere plus it's expensive. For the next visit I would not go there again. Feels like a fast food restaurant. There was no Ambiente-no music-very loud serving people, you hear all things going on in the kitchen.

Had a disappointed experience at Nihao. Service is quick, though not very professional. The food appeared to be made some days earlier and then reheated, and not fresh at all. The venue could need a makeover as well.

Our expectations were high as we had read the reviews here. Unfortunately, we were very dissapointed. We ordered the seafood portions, which both had also meat in them(!). The sauce resembled someting like the ones you make in the microwave. Can't recommend this to anyone....More
