We ate a reasonable a la Carte meal here some months ago but this time, we ordered a set meal. We should have known better! The spring roll looked more like a doughnut filled with some cabbage plus a lot of nothing. Worse was to follow! We were then served a vegetable salad covered with a sort of mayonnaise. Nothing...

I've been living in Switzerland for years. Have eaten at a number of the Chinese restaurants. This is a terrible restaurant. The ambience, wood carvings, and fish tank are the only redeeming aspect. The service: terrible. Waiters: rude. Menu: Thai, Vietnamese, and a touch of classic Chinese. I ordered Nasi Goreng as it is a dish I particularly know and... More

This place was recommended to us by our parents and their friends who had been here some months back. The restaurant was almost full. The service was a little slow but the staff were friendly. And the excellent food made up for it all. Would definitely go again.

The title of this restaurant is misleading. Not a single person in this so-called "Chinese" restaurant speaks Chinese. Over half of the menu shows Vietnamese and Thai dishes, and the English version contradicts the Chinese version. When I requested steamed rice-paper roll - a common Vietnamese dish, the answer was negative. Only "fried spring roll"... We ordered appetiser platter -... More

I said to the Chinese waiter, I think it may have been the owner. that is wasn't nice and to take it back. He misunderstood me and heated it up and bought it back to me.... More

We did not finish eating at this restaurant. Although the decor seems chique, it does not match the quality of the food and the service. The starter consisted of dried burned ribs without sauce, a salad drowned in mayonnaise sauce and the sate did not come with sate sauce. To top off our experience, we found a hair in the... More

We had dinner 2 times in our week in Lucerne. The food was wonderful and the service even better. Beautiful setting, staff welcomed us and spent time chatting. Would recommend

This restaurant has a huge menu! Both the dishes we had were excellent. I had them add extra spice and they did it wonderfully - spicy but still flavorful. It is a little far from the city center, but this might be the best Asian food in Luzern.

Great Chinese-style decoration of the whole restaurant. The food is delicious although not native Chinese food. Waiters are nice also
