We needed a break from Italian food. So we went into tang after seeing that it was full of visitors from China. The food was fresh prophetic and very tasty we especially liked the Kung Pao Chicken and the Spinach with Ginger

I'm surprised at the positive reviews, which is one of the reasons we chose to dine here. The restaurant was empty, other than a table (where fiends? family? was camped out.). Another member soon joined them with a dog in tow. Despite the lack of customers, service was painfully slow. The entrees arrived before the starter was. One of the... More

you normally wouldn't think of having Chinese food in Italy but if the mood strikes, this is the place to go--the food is authentic, very tasty and well priced. You can't go wrong here.

On the 3rd night in Florence we decided to try a Chinese dinner and this restaurant popped up. It's located near the University but is a typical Chinese restaurant! Most of the customers are young Chinese students and the most popular cuisine is Hot Pot. The quality of their Chinese foods is pretty good and very traditional. Guggest to try... More

Located near San Lorenzo this restaurant has an extensive Chinese menu at reasonable prices. The food quality and portion size was good and service was prompt. The only drawback was that the owner was sneaking smokes at the bar / cash register and we are adamant non smokers.

We were on a busy sightseeing day and while walking past one of the touristy streets of Florence we happened to find this Chinese restaurant. Like many other reviewers have already mentioned, the reason why we went for dinner here was to break the daily routine of Italian cuisine. The food was served hot and fresh. The taste was different... More

The restaurant is easy to find. It was nice to have some hot pot on such a cold night. Soil milk was tasty. Food was delivered a little slow, especially the sliced beef. The section was not very thin, so we did not ask for it again. Fish was great. The taste of both spicy and non-spicy pot were good.... More

a good basic chinese - we went for lunch and the staff while quick, were dressed for skateboarding rather than service. food was average - chilli flakes (rather than fresh chillies) were used in one dish - not the best, but the food was fair, served quite quickly and was a quick lunchtime stop. reasonable priced

Located really close to our hotel and noticed it seemed to be popular on weekend nights amongst Asian families, so we decided to try it for dinner. Great food with just the right flavor! Ordered the stir fried rice noodles with shrimp, the eggplant and the green beans. Noodles were tasty, cooked perfectly and mixed with some fresh shredded veggies.... More

Came here a coupe days ago for a break from Italian food and left very disappointed. We weren't expecting Chinese food like the states, but our meal was not good at all. We ordered a couple dishes, none being very tasty. The sweet and sour chicken was mush and there was hardly even chicken inside. The flavors were not good... More
