“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

A restaurant whose costumers are locals. Meaning you can be sure it's not a tourist trap, even if they have a menu with english translation. But in a city of 165 foreign missions it's the least you would expect.
Very easy to reach, even by foot, just a a 10 minutes walk from Pont Montblanc.

Loved the food, well served, tasty, efficient with a very efficient service.

To save your and their time, look up their menu on their website. There's a lot to choose from.

We didn't regret it and certainly could dine there again.

“Ambiance great - food great and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

This restaurant has a very nice decoration.
The food is good and prices are correct.
You can enjoy a buffet for lunch every day for a very cheap price.
Buffet is very well served, with at least 3 hot meals, plus soup, plus dim-sum, plus salad....fruit salad, etc...
Take away service is offered.

“Nice and traditional Chinese restaurant in Geneva”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

I almost go once per week to this Chinese restaurant, service is very good, always provide free coffee or drink to long term clients. Menu has various choices, can satisfy all kinds of taste. Decoration has good class. I love spicy food, highly recommend the spicy fish. Also the egg plant with meat (not included into the menu yet) was excellent. I also had arranged several big parties there, all went through with big sucess. Believe it's the best Chinese restaurant in Geneva.

“Tasty and freshly prepared food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

A known restaurant. sorry but I too do not agree to the negative comments. May be they just had a bad day. The duck crepes were tasty. I like the tangy taste.
My favourite rice crisped with fried beef... yummm.
A very chinese restaurant with bright red colored interiors and simple decor.
Service was good.

“SATISFYING”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

Having known this restaurant for a number of years, I'm very surprised to read a negative review.
Its name is very apt the present owners took over this establishment when it was a joke of a Chinese restaurant giving it its present name and indeed it rose from the ashes.
Service , Quality and Costs are excellent.
Its fixed price Buffet at lunch times is of outstanding value and "a la carte " prices are extremely reasonable.
