We had a really nice dinner here. The food was tasty and the service was really good. Even if the restaurant was full we didn't wait long. You'd better book before! The portions were large and well-prepared. We ordered two soups (the sweet sour and the tofu ones are delicious), some crab balls as appetizers, then a Chinese steamed sole... More

The food is nicely done and authentically Chinese. Really surprised to find this quality of Chinese food in Padua. The staff was very accommodating. We had two small children and the staff was attentive and accommodating towards the kids. The huge fish tank under the floor was interesting, the kids enjoyed it, and it made for an interesting atmosphere. Toilets... More

Very good Chinese restaurant - good ingredients, cooked well. Friendly owners and child friendly. Not that uncommon in many parts of the world - but rare, rare, rare in Italy. And very good value. Nice local wine. Not surprising was packed out the two nights we were there in early April. Try the aubergine and pork.

You would never expect to be served authentic Chinese food which is absolutely delicious in this part of the world. We are from Malaysia and Chinese food here is abundant. So, when we went into this restaurant we were rather skeptical of what we would be served. Lo and behold, we were in for the surprise of our lives. Shanghai... More

first things first: this is a chinese restaurant in Italy, in a small town like Padova... so the 'very good' is in relation to those criteria. Sure, i had much more authentic food in China... but remembering that we are in Italy: very good. Staff is friendly, decor is what you would expect in a western chinese restaurant. Menu is... More

I love a good Chinese food. But this is just not it. I will carry the taste of the vinegar in their sweet and sour source for the day. They drowned fish in it and it tasted just that. The spring rolls were bland. Gamberini -not fresh. If that is Nr.14th restaurant in Padua, I feel sorry for their inhabitants... More

This Chinese restaurant is definitely above average. The minute you walk in the door you know that your entering a special restaurant. The decor is modern and the floor covers a gigantic fish tank. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and professional. We ate there on a Sunday night and by 7:00 PM it was full. We... More
