I was in here today and took the lunch buffet for 90 SEK (Around £7.50 or $10). found a wide selection of food from egg rolls to chicken fillet on a stick in peanut sauce. A bit busy but that's what you get when the food is good and at the right price I guess. Only one member of front... More

China River, not to be confused with neighbouring China Garden (which I find much less attractive) is a well- run restaurant which during lunch breaks and on many evenings gets very busy – for a good reason. It is a friendly (also family- friendly) place; they are centrally located in the city centre opposite the railway station and next to... More

"The other" chinese restaurant - the one without the koi. Close your eyes and you won't be able to tell the difference.
