We're from New York and have been eating Chinese food since we could eat solid food. After a week of 100% Italian food we decided that Rome would be a good place to try and find something different, so we went on trusty tripadvisor and looked for a Chinese restaurant in Rome. Unfortunately, all of the "top" rated Chinese restaurants had pretty horrible reviews. Wang Xiang Lou was pretty close to our hotel so we decided we'd take a walk by and see if it was crowded and what it looked like. Much to our surprise, the restaurant was pretty full, and even better, there were several Asians eating there (always a good sign). We decided to give it a try and were glad we did. We ordered several typical "Western" Chinese dishes (some soups, spring rolls, noodles, sweet and sour chicken, bock choy and fried rice), all of which were pretty good. The portions aren't huge, but for the price that's not surprising. All in all, while not the most amazing Chinese food we've ever had, the food was very good for what it was and I would recommend Wang Xiang Lou for anyone looking for something a little different.

Just north from the Opera House and around the corner from the Piazza Della Republica. We loved this place. Very light and fresh food. We ate here 5 times while in Roma. It was inexpensive and yummy!! If you find yourself anywhere near here stop in and have some Rice and Vegetables or Spring Rolls......wish I was there!

This is a lovely small chinese restaurant. The service was quick, the food arrived even faster and was very tasty and quite a large serve! We had vegetarian spring rolls, 2 x sizzling chicken dishes, 1 x stir fried vegetables and mineral water - all for only 15Euro! And we were very full. We were so impressed at the quality of the food we ate there twice before leaving Rome.
It is a casual but great value restaurant.
