“Average”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

The food was ok and the waiter was ok. Nothing special. Sometimes the waiter seemed not interested at all, other times he/she tried to take our plates before everyone was finished.

“Disgrace to Chinese cousine- just like frozen microwave food!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 via mobile

The location is superb in the heart of buzzling Aker Brygge. Lots of seatings (110) outside. Inside you will only find 9 tables. Atmosphere is cozy and elegant.
Except for this everything else is very poor. The food is the worst. My sweet & sour pork looked like a frozen microwave dish just bought from the supermarket (see picture) and the sauce was cold. It is definately the worst sweet & sour dish I have ever tasted. The gong bao chicken was ok.
The waiter was careless even when I confronted him about the food.
I will not recommend this restaurant. If you want chinese food in Aker Brygge, you should try Mr Bay or Sake Sushi instead.

“Tasty Chinese food”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

I can be very short here, compliments to the chef. He managed to serve a tasty meal. Ordered some basic meal, but it exceeded my expectation, they made somethng special out of it.

“Stylish oriental restaurant with amaxing menu and food.”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

I love the location - Bryggetorget, Aker Brygge. In the summer months you can eat outside and if it's chilly they have outside heating. There are lots of tables outside and it is often quite sunny in the late afternoon/evening. They have an excellent menu, and the food never fails to please. You can tell them how spicy you want your food too. It is always a high standard, and the price is really good. Inside there are only 15-20 tables but they take everything from 2 people to large groups.
