My dad went to this restaurant back in the 70s and had fond memories of the place, so he wanted us to go. The oldest Chinese restaurant in Denmark they say, but it looks like it hasn't been updated since then, both food and decor-wise. The restaurant was mostly empty. When we came in, we approached who we assumed was... More

We're hungry and fancied chinese food and somehow we landed up in this terrible place. The less said the better - the conclusion avoid this place. - awful service - poor selection - poor hygiene

Amazing good (and big) spring rolls. Nice manager. Inexpensive food - good value for money. Expensive soft drinks. Will be back for more spring rolls.

We were hungry, fancied Chinese. Saw this Chinese restaurant in a central location and though we would give it a go. It was raining heavily so I didn't take phone out to look it up which was a major school boy error. The large signs in the dining room forbidding taking pictures should have been a warning - it was... More

Awful. Cold. Stodgy. Over cooked. Little selection for a buffet. Poor quality ingredients. Nearly took my teeth out eating some potato thing, rice was like little evil bullets, really wouldn't want to guess what went in the meatballs. The sweet and sour sauce had a hint of antiseptic to it, which was just weird. Lager was as flat as a... More

If you are on a tight budget, this may be a place for you. You can fill up on fried stuff and rice. Don't be fooled by just the buffet price- you will buy an overpriced drink. There really is no service other than the person that takes your mandatory drink order- then they disappear. The food really is ok... More

Staff welcoming and shown to window seat. Drinks way over priced. Buffet was boring, luke warm and not very appetising. Price is cheap compared to others in Copenhagen but visit the others and pay the extra.

The atmosphere is nice, and the staff friendly and good. The food was okey but ridiculously expensive. Regular tap water costs almost 3 euro which already here sets the tone for the rest of the pricing choices. If you want overly expensive "okey and limited" Chinese food, then this is the place for you.

Should have checked trip advisor first. The buffet (or what was actually left of it) was cold, greasy, bland and at times, nauseating. Don't even get me started on the (hidden) prices. As I write this, my stomach is making some worrying noises.... Avoid avoid avoid

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
