The food was very fresh and tasty, portions were more than adequate. We found the service to be excellent - the waiter helped us to choose, was friendly and unobtrusive. For Helsinki the prices were really reasonable.

Portions are big, food is tasty and that's not for big value. Have tried both meat and fish, both were fine. Open till 10 p.m.

Lots of vegetarian options. I am a vegetarian myself so do not know about fish or meat dishes, but for the vegetarian fare, I think this is the 3rd best chinese in Helsinki (after Dong Bei Hu and New Bamboo Center).
