Good food, fast service, and a welcome surprise when the bill came and it was only 11euros each (for a group of 5 people, with two bottles of wine!). The duck was delicious.

This restauarant has a wide range of Chinese foods on the menu at affordable prices. The food is good, with good portion sizes. Many Chinese people dine here as well as locals and tourists. The service was fairly good however we ordered starters and main courses and both courses arrived at the same time. This is quite a basic restaurant... More

It's my favourite place to organise dinners with colleagues from work. There are plenty of tasty dishes to choose from and the total price is acceptable even for the ones on a budget. The place does not have much of an etnic decoration and is often crowded (so thus quite noisy). Still I would give this restaurant a higher note... More

When food is this reasonably priced, you lower your expectations. We were pleasantly surprised by the flavor (garlic-infused white rice?) and quantities. Though it takes us 20 minutes to drive here (We are on the other side of the city) we will definitely come again.

We visited this restaurant 2 times is January 2017, our comments - # Very fresh Chinese food, with veg and non-veg options. # Portions are large, and prices are quite affordable. You can have full meal in less than 10 euros. # Service is very fast, so do not order a lot if you do not want to waste food.... More

This is the type of restaurant you would walk by as does not look anything special. But thanks to other reviewers it is definitely worth a visit if you want good basic Chinese food at good value prices. The place is clean but not fancy more in style with a basic cafe. However it was clean and the service was... More

The only reason why this is Chinese food, is because they use soy sauce and tons of MSG to make their bland and unimaginative dishes seem slightly palpable; of course only if you drink enough water to not die of dehydration and high blood pressure because of the ridiculous amount of salt. The food is completely flavorless. For example, the... More

The restaurant was small and cosy, even though it was crowded the employees were fast and friendly, liked the food - actually we ordered too much and had the rest as takeout.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
