When we arrived there was a sign that started to wait to be seated, but after two employees walked past us and ignored us, we walked over to the bar only to be told to wait to be seated (we should have just left there).

One out many Chinese/Asian restaurants that started up great, but after a while goes from good, spicy Chinese/Asian food to the more traditional "lots of dishes that all tastes the same". Most of the spices are removed to fit a weak Swedish stomach and that makes the dishes boring. The restaurant is decorated as most Chinese restaurants so you won't... More
