Just very normal, we are Chinese and went to this place for a quick lunch. the food itself are normal and too oily (at least to me). service is okay, price is a bit high if you ask me. The location is very very good near the station. I think that's why it's "popular". well, if you don't expect too... More

Longing for some Asian vegetarian food after days of only Pasta and Pizza this was a gem.. Loved the food and service was good as well. We were even treated with some Chinese tea and some fruits after the dinner! Ended up getting there a second time for a take away in the 2 days we were around. Only mention... More

Happened upon this place on the way back to our rental apartment in Florence on Christmas Day this year. We decided to give it a try and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The clientele was mostly Asian, a good sign of authenticity. We have hot and sour soup, wonton soup, shrimp shu mai, fried pork dumplings, and... More

Most authentic Chinese food ever tasted overseas. Definitely a good choice for Chinese people when travel in Florence. It does provide the same flavor you can enjoy in China. If you are a foreigner who want to try Chinese cuisine, it is highly recommended to try this one. I think this restaurant is underrated on TripAdvisor. 很好吃的中餐厅,TripAdvisor上的评分偏低了。一般出国的时候不太敢尝试中餐,会遇到奇奇怪怪的菜品和味道,但这家店确实让我惊艳,口味非常纯正,开在国内也算是很棒的餐厅了。

If you are staying anywhere near the Florence main train station, and looking for good Chinese food, this is the place to go. For almost a week that we stayed in Florence, we had our dinner here - as takeouts, except one day when we dined there. They had the takeouts ready in minutes and the condiments like hot oil,...

We dinned here on the night we arrived in Florence. We wanted to try something else after a week of having Italian food.. The prices were very reasonable and food was delicious. We ordered two meat and one veg dish with steam rice, glass of beer and bottle of water only cost €32 with €3 table charge.

Came here two days in a row and I'm coming back again! The food tastes nice and they put spice just the way I like it. They also have takeaway options. The prices are reasonable prices. Next time I am in Florence I will come here again🙂

I work in Italy but I'm British so we were looking for a change of cuisine from Italian, and this resturant is what a Brit would expect from a good Chinese restaurant. Food freshly cooked and nicely presented, prompt service, reasonable prices, nicely air conditioned room.

We ate there a few times this past trip and ordered individual dishes. The food met the approval of my Japanese SO and the service was good.

After over 4 days of non stop pizza and pasta I was craving for a piece of home. This did not disappoint. Tip: if you order from the Chinese printed menu in Chinese, the prices are slightly cheaper (about 0.20 cent cheaper than the normal prices).
