The restaurant was empty, as was most of Kirkenes at that time of year. Food was customized to our requirements. Service was friendly enough. Just nothing spectacular. We were pleased to find Chinese food this far west and north.

We arrived around 21:00 in Kirkenes. This restaurant still accepted us, although it was 21:30 already. We appreciated we were not rejected, as we were extremely hungry while the restaurant in our hotel closed 21:00 already. We ordered fried rice and nuddle. Since both of us are vegetarian (and nothing for vegetarian in the menu) we selected the food we... More

We ate at this restaurant for lunch and it was very ordinary for Norway let alone Chinese food. My suggestion is to eat elsewhere like the various pizza places in town and use this place as a last resort.

Rubbery chicken, terrible service, miserable waiter, stains on glasses, dirty knifes and forks, lack of personal, badly exicuted food and very low standards. Also make sure to hold you breath whenever someone enters the WC. Ended up paying 60£ for three spoons of stickyrice. /Truly unlucky tourists ended up in the worst dinner of Kirkenes.

The food is well prepared and taste is good. No surprises, good or bad. Funny seating behind a kind of movable wall that takes all wives away. This is a place to go if your hungry and just want to eat until your not hungry. Every other need want be fulfilled.

Being a family of asians after a week of eating Norwegian food we were looking for a Chinese restaurant. We were pretty pleased with the food. By far it is not the best Chinese food we've had, but in all fairness the owner is a bit limited in his ingredients so had to make due with waht he could get... More

The food was just not good, the prices to high for the standard. The beef shecuan was spicy, but had no taste, and the beef was strange. The sauce was tasteless slime. Stay away!
