The beef with peppers was very tender and nice but a little on the greasy side. Not much flavor. I had the fried fish with a special sauce (16.90 Euros) which was excellent. The beef order came out first and I had to wait about 15 minutes for my fish. We ordered two servings of fried rice, but the waiter encouraged us to have only one order because it was fairly large. It wasn't and we had to order two more orders of white rice. The fried rice was bland, lacking salt and had no flavor. The rice was an extra charge. The decor was very stylish and very clean. There was a lot of staff but we had to keep calling them over for service. The staff was very friendly though. At the end of the night, they would not call a taxi for us.

The staff are friendly at this place and speak English and Portuguese fluently. The flavours are authentic and the staff made good recommendations. The place is also quiet.

We had dinner at this restaurant. The food was very tasty and authentically Chinese. The home cooked tofu was very tasty and spicy. The sea bass was fresh and cooked just right, not overcooked. The stir-fried beef was tasty and not too salty but rather oily. The fried rice was rather tasteless. All in all a tasty Chinese meal. Service was fast and efficient.

The food is good but nothing special or extraordinary. We though we were about to experience something very good but it was not the case.

The food took more than one hour to come, including the starters.

Two of the dishes did not come at all and we were billed on one of those anyway.

Food is average, pricey; however, if you want to be mistreated, this is the place for you. They do not accepted any of our cards, only cash, and did not allow us to choose the table we wanted. A joke. Sorry but not for me.
