This is quite a genuine Chinese restaurant. Service is good, polite and fast. Menu choice is good. Food tasted delicious but portions were not huge. Good wine and drinks selection. Nice atmosphere and everything very clean. As always in Switzerland, eating out is on the expensive side, but if you're looking for a Chinese meal in Lausanne town, give this... More

Had an enjoyable meal with a menu in several languages it was easy to understand what to order. Stuck with the set menu for two which was enjoyable. Service was ok, with a waiter in training.

Was good for a lunch menu. Crowdy place which is a good sign but unfortunately no choice of dumplings.

The restaurant had great ambience and good service. The food wasn't so good. It was very average. The portions are very small as well.

We went for dinner and were given a table in a busy pathway (clients and waiters all evening). The menu is very common and the dishes were unsurprising. In addition, everything was expensive (even the few prawn chips as starters).

The waiters are kind and nice, and the service is good. However, as a Chinese, I think the dishes are far away from real Chinese food. The Ravioli Grille is not grilled enough and the recipe of the fillings is wrong. The taste of the main dish is strange and not as it should be in a traditional way. They... More

We bumped into the restaurant by chance and were really attracted by the design, attentive host and the fact that most of the tables were reserved (which is normally a good sign). The food was delicious and well-priced (6CHF glass of wine, 18 - plat du jour). My only pity was a wrong choice of a plate. I decided to... More

The food was delicious. We had 3 starters and 3 mains and all were really good. The staff were helpful and attentive. Couldn't fault it.

Not sure if the chef of the owner changed, but the food is now very plain, sauces have very basic tastes ... but prices are ridiculous for this quality. The record was a kir royal prepared with tired Champagne for 16 CHF!!! Easy to find much better in Lausanne.
