This restaurant has very nice decor and an authentic atmosphere. However, the food is only OK and the price above average. Plenty of other options in Cork I would prefer.

The restaurant is really well located in the city centre and It has also a beautiful and elegant inside. The food was pretty good, so was the service, but in my opinion a little too expensive. Anyway a good chinese restaurant!
