Other than the Chinese decorations and lack of atmosphere, which could easily be improved with music and a little remodelling, the food as ever was really good and not bad value

Nothing fancy, and reasonably priced (for a change), and served satisfying good food. Large portions with enough leftovers for tomorrow.

The restaurant is small but very clean. They have a good menu with a lot of choices. The food is really good; very large portions, I couldn't finish my plate and for a very good price! I always go here when I'm in Montreux and I will come back :)

I was first surprised to find many Chinese restaurants in Montruex. This place was very close to our hotel so we tried. The place is small but clean and had what I wanted. We ordered a fried rice with chicken and Singapore style noodle and spring rolls. All of them were very good. My 11 year old daughter liked the... More

We had been out for a long day and decided to have dinner there on the way back to the hotel. The service was prompt and the menu offered many dishes that we... More

Another Chinese restaurant in Montreux. It seems that every time I leave Montreux. I come back to discover that yet another Chinese or Asian restaurant had opened. They all have more or less the same menu, apart from some dishes that they call specialties by strategically maneuvering their sauces and vegetables. Customers do show up, some are even fellow Asians,... More
