Great food and good service at an affordable price. The menu is not the normal Swedish take on Chinese food. This is better and feel healthier too. We tried two different chicken dishes, one with Noodels and one with rice, both where tasty!

We all had different dishes; duck, chicken, pork and mushroom soup and it all tasted delicious. Good service and friendly staff. Recommend it!

This used to be a very good Chinese place. Unfortunately, it switched owners. Now it serves bog standard westernized Chinese fast food but at the same high prices it used to have! There's no reason at all to come here anymore.More

Didn't even expect to be so good. Hot'n'sour soup - perfect. Went for duck - was very very good. If in Gothenburg back for some days, definitely will repeat.
