This is one of my favorite restaurants in Johannesburg. They have some excellent options for vegetarians, their stir fry vegetables & tiger salad are my favorites. Service is good, the staff is warm and friendly :)

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in Johannesburg. The food is more expensive than Kung-fu kitchen alikes, but the quality just cannot be compared. The staff is very friendly and always wants to assist. Highly recommended
