This Asian restaurant is a gem in Aalesund town centre. Very tasty Chinese dishes, fresh ingredients and nicely presented. Cosy décor. Very friendly service. The traditional sweet and sour pork turned out to be surprisingly good. It was actually the best we have ever tried...More

Great variety of food from Japan, China and Thailand. Food was served within a decent amount of time. Overall a pretty good experience, with good food and normal Norwegian prices. We had a good time. Might be the best Asian option in Ålesund.

For everyone, who love spicy seefood I recommend the Monkfish with very spicy veggies. Delicious food is accompanied by pleasant atmosphere, the waiter surrounds the care of each customer and each customer treats with great respect. Gives 10/10.

We both had different main courses and they were equally good. Personally, I can recommend the mixed oriental grill. Well prepared and presented and it was a nice combination of flavours. We will definitely be going back.

This restaurant serves amazing food. Spare ribs, Peking duck and mixed grill are especially good. A tasteful blend of eastern and western decor adds to the pleasure of eating there.

We were in Ålesund for work, and as we've always used to go to the Orient, we chose them on this occasion too. We were working late, so we called the restaurant to check when the kitchen closed. We were told the kitchen was closing...More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant in the street next to our hotel. Getting good food in Norway is easy, but for the average West European traveler the price level is quite high. I simply love sushi and I did not expect to...More

We came to norway after a trip in England and we miss Chinese food. Found this restaurant in the pedestrian street. Everything was perfect. We had sushi and Mala mongfish, which was hot and spicy. Love it! Good!

Very good food, we go here often to eat dinner. Service is good as well. Good value for the money.The only thing is that it can be a few misunderstandings due to different languages spoken. They can do gluten free as well.
