I am truly amazed by the raving reviews given on how great the Chinese food served in this restaurant. As an ethnic Chinese - I have to say this is the worst Chinese food I ever had in my life. The wanton soup is so oily and there was a thick layer of oil.. Not broth. The meat used in the dim sum was so such poor inferior quality. Worst of all, the food is oily and so badly cooked. Honestly - this is not Asian fusion, it's simply horrible Chinese food served. I will avoid this restaurant.

Went on the recommendation of a tour guide. Not a big menu but decent variety, served very quickly and pretty tasty. It’s not a big place but we got there early enough so we didn’t have to wait. By the time we left, there was a sizable crowd waiting to get in. There were plenty of locals and everyone looked to be in their 20’s.

Among great variety of places in Barcelona - this is the one worth visiting.
Recommended both by locals and by experienced tourists.
You may queue a little to get inside, but you will get served quickly,

The food was good, very simple and slightly plain. The duck was ok and so was the sticky rice. There was nothing special about the food although the menu is varied the dishes were over powered by the use of salt and soya sauce. It’s not cheap since the portions are fairly small.

Might be my all time favorite restaurant.
It was hard to order because I didn't really know what I wanted nor did I quite understand the menu because of lack of Spanish. But the nice waitress recommended a couple of dishes and they were perfect. The vibe was really cool, and the restaurant aint that big on the looks its all about good food. I liked that.
10/10
Only bad thing I can say about the place is that they didn't have any cocktails.
