Even if we came 10 minutes before closing hours they were very polite and nice to serve us. The food was just delicious!

Worst Chinese food I have had since my 10 day trip in Europe. I don't expect Chinese food to be outstanding but at least decent. The food was cold/ small portion/ salty/ and the tofu was off( tasted sour)... I would not go again or recommend it..

We have been in Italy for a week and wanted to try Chinese food in Italy. This resto does not disappoint us. Should try.

Just came across the restaurant when walked by looking for a Chinese meal. To our surprise, the restaurant is one of oldest in the city. The deco shows the owner had spent a lot of attention and money into the design. Food was good, fried rice in particular could compare with Chinese restaurant anywhere in Asia. Service was really good.... More

Very disappointed. Today I couldn't even finish my dinner. I was alone and for almost one hour, they just served to me two plates. I have requested them do not serve the third one. I was waiting for around 5 minutes for the menu and the Wifi password. Customers coming after me were finishing their dinners. I will not come... More

As much as I love Italian, we stop at this Chinese place for some different. The price is much cheaper than an Italian meal and we get a totally different vibe. The spring rolls are great as well as the sweet and sour pork, pork and peppers, spicy chicken, and shrimp fried rice. The check is a fraction of our... More

If you long for Chinese food while in the midst of all the Tuscany food, this is where you go. The place has 2 parts, Chinese and Japanese (separated) so you can choose. Centrally located with good food

We got back very tired from a day trip to Cinque Terre and decided to have some quick Chinese takeout. Cognizant that Florence is not known for Chinese food, we had very low expectations. The fried rice and the Peking Duck was surprisingly a cut above just average. My assessment is this place is acceptable if you are hankering for... More

The food is pretty tasty and of a good quality. Price is reasonable too. Practically every dish we ordered tasted good; and it was a welcome relief from many days of eating pasta and pizza ...

Being in Italy for 2.5 weeks, my hbd and I really were craving some Asian food with vegetables. This place really hit the spot and was a good break from pizza and pasta. It also ended up a lot cheaper than many of our meals in Italy. They surprisingly had quite a few Traditional Chinese dishes like Mapo tofu, and... More
