The food was nice and cheap and the décor was lovely however the service was poor. The staff clearly did not want us to be there and it must have took us about 10-15 to pay our bill as we kept getting fobbed off by the staff.

I'd like to start this review by saying that when I go to a Chinese restaurant, my expectations are not terribly high. In fact, this is the only restaurant review me or my girlfriend have ever written, but the food here basically has forced us to; its the worse chinese we've ever eaten - terrible terrible terrible food. The sweet... More

Myself and my boyfriend had just arrived in budapest, we looked on TripAdvisor to find a good chinese close to us and we picked this one as it had good reviews. These reviews are untrue. At home in ireland a good chinese is far far far better than this, I am not sure if this is just the standard in... More

I don't know much about Chinese food, but this place was really good. Not the takeaway on the side (that's horrible), but the main place inside. Always full of Chinese tourists, and I've seen the staff eating there too - proof that it's good.

Well I did go to the restaurant based on the reviews. One day I had noodles and they were good. Next time I had a chicken dish, tasted good, but I hope it's chicken::) Any way the wait time is not bad. You just have to call the waiters. To be on safe side a veggie menu would be best.

one of the best, oldest, most authentic Chinese restaurant in town. The foods are simply amazing with very reasonable price. ask the waitstaff for off the menu specials. Restaurant itself is clean, partly newly renovated. Young, energetic, helpful wait staffs. The owner is trilingual, very helpful with any question regarding the city that you might have.

avoid this place. We waited an hour for tasteless salty slop. After being told it would be another five minutes we waited 15 more. We decided to leave after an hour but sadly for us the food arrived before we could exit. It was the worse Chinese food I had had. Lacked flavour except soy! The Chinese people opposite us... More

My wife is Chinese, so we often try a Chinese restaurant while in a foreign city. This place is very busy (mostly tour groups) so you might need to grab a staff member's attention to order or get the bill. Considering how busy they were, our order came fairly quickly and was very favorable. If you're in the neighborhood and... More
