This is a nice small restaurant with friendly staff. Easy to get to. The starters [spring rolls and prawns] were very good. The mains [chicken, duck, noodles, fried rice] were good but not outstanding. The steamed fish very mushy and not very good.

The wine was not good. One glass had to be sent back as was obviously from a bottle that had been open for some time. They changed it without any fuss.

Zurich is expensive but the prices here a little high for what you get. The bill was just a printout of figures with no description which meant very difficult to check it. You would have to ask for the menu and wine list and find the items!

If you are looking for Asian food and can not stand the same old , yes old as in sitting there for hours you need to try this place, right by bus 31 stop. The great thing is lunch is only $20! Now you foreigners might find that ridiculous for lunch but if you spend any time in Zürich you know $20 is cheap. Not to mention though have a selection of beef relatively large shrimp different races spring rolls and the place is clean and friendly.

Some coworkers and I went there on a Monday for lunch and were pleasantly surprised at the selection and quality of food. Not to mention it's a beautifully decorated restaurant with very friendly owners who were truly interested in our opinion. The book they had some of the softest the shrimp good size and properly cook the only downside would be the rice nothing special nothing bad just would've been nice to have a little higher quality rice.
We will definitely be spreading the word in the office and will be returning.

Good . . . for Zürich.

By London standards it's a bit generic, but the food is well executed. All takeaway is freshly cooked and you can sit outside the kitchen window and have it handed straight to you.

Lunch specials menu with reasonable prices and some stable Chinese dishes. My Singapore fried noodles with shrimps tasted authentic and familiar. The only down side was that too much salt was used, presumably on account of how Swiss people really like their food salty. On my second visit I ordered the same dish again but asked to prepare it with less salt, which they did, and compensated with more spices. My culinarily unadventurous Swiss hubby ordered the Sweet & Sour Chicken, which tasted legit as well.

The restaurant is small but very nicely decorated with an intimate ambiance. They get pretty packed at lunch time during the weekdays so call ahead or arrive before the lunch rush. The service is a bit on the slow side on account of only 1 friendly waitress serving everyone.
