Peking Duck was excellent. The pancakes were uniquely exquisite and the service by Paulo was very welcoming and helpful.

Very good food, crispy duck is excellent, and fried ravioli and beef in basilica. Nice ambiance, friendly service albeit understaffed at times. Not cheap but all asian in Switzerland is overpriced. Never disappointed here.

Authentic Chinese food and friendly service. As the restaurant name suggests, Peking duck is highly recommended.

Went here on a Monday for lunch. This way not our choice but as we found out the restaurant we usually like to go decided to go here. The place is very nicely decorated and you get a posh vibe so this made me even more excited hoping the food would be good. We ordered, sweet and sour chicken with... More

Very nicely decorated restaurant with a glass walkway displaying live carp swimming underneath. We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel Concierge. As expected prices were steep but the corresponding portion sizes were not so big. The chili beef was good but the sauce served alongside it had an overpowering taste of stock cube. The quality of the meat on... More

Yes its pricy, but a peking duck is a treat. The peking duck was a menu, i had springrolls, dumplings the duck and desert.... More

My family and I had lunch at this Chinese restaurant. Already at the entry the staff was friendly and found us a cozy table. We took the pekin duck and it was really good. The only thing which could be better is the starters, they were fresh but as you took them out of the bamboo basket, they fell apart.

Really good food, and very well presented. We ordered tea and we got our own teapot with subtle superb flavors, they even came to our table to top our teapots up with hot water! The service was fast but this was maybe partially due to the fact that Tuesday nights aren't very busy. The only setback was the portion size... More

We went for a birthday and this is one of the more authentic Chinese restaurants we have seen in Switzerland. Quality of food and selection is good. It is somewhat pricey though the size of the dishes is very good (we didn't, for example, have a main fish each but shared a couple of dishes) the crispy duck is also... More
