Stuff, food, ambient all is perfect. Every two weeks I'm going to eat at this restaurant. Recommendations to all.

The title of this restaurant is misleading. Not a single person in this so-called "Chinese" restaurant speaks Chinese. Over half of the menu shows Vietnamese and Thai dishes, and the English version contradicts the Chinese version. When I requested steamed rice-paper roll - a common Vietnamese dish, the answer was negative. Only "fried spring roll"... We ordered appetiser platter -... More

My husband and I visiting from Australia and unfortunately stumbled across this restaurant. The soup I ordered was cold and had a strange taste. I said to the Chinese waiter, I think it may have been the owner. that is wasn't nice and to take it back. He misunderstood me and heated it up and bought it back to me.... More

We did not finish eating at this restaurant. Although the decor seems chique, it does not match the quality of the food and the service. The starter consisted of dried burned ribs without sauce, a salad drowned in mayonnaise sauce and the sate did not come with sate sauce. To top off our experience, we found a hair in the... More

We had dinner 2 times in our week in Lucerne. The food was wonderful and the service even better. Beautiful setting, staff welcomed us and spent time chatting. Would recommend

This restaurant has a huge menu! Both the dishes we had were excellent. I had them add extra spice and they did it wonderfully - spicy but still flavorful. It is a little far from the city center, but this might be the best Asian food in Luzern.

The ambiance is lovely , fish tanks and typical traditional oriental decor. Contrary to some reports the service was friendly and efficient and the restaurant was very busy on a Monday night! I understand the language issue as their second language us German so as an englishman lots of room for misunderstanding! We however largely got what we wanted. The... More

Someone suggested us to visit Shanghai 3 in Lucerne. We were in Lucerne in the month of November when it was freezing cold, windy (because of the lake) and all the shops shut at 4 pm. Still we waited to experience the food in this fancy Chinese place (opens at 5:30 pm for dinner). And to our surprise, we were... More

The Duck was moist and crunchy on the outside with delicious vegetables and fried rice. The portion was so large that we could not finish it. Service was very slow. We felt a bit neglected as a solo couple, since there were larger groups that seemed to get all the attention. Nevertheless, the food was delicious.
