Not your average chinese restaurant in Europe. Excellent service, nice decor, quiet environment. The food is good, but the traditional dishes we tried were no better (just better presented) than in the average chinese restaurant in the average Chinatown of athe average US city. You can see the kitchen, and I do suspect that the quality of ingredient is better... More

Chinese restaurants don't have good press in Spain. But this one is actually OK and worthy of a visit, especially for their lunch special menu at around €12 (incl. a drink). It isn't fine food, but it's definitely worth the price. I'd go back again if in Barcelona.

If you are foreigner always remember than dinner starts at 8 pm anytime earlier and you will find the Resturant not ready to take on clientele. The food is definitely not authentic Chinese, but modified for the Spanish pallet and served for western diners. Portions are individual not communal and the rotating "lazy sue" is not there. The "beef" is... More

Nothing spécial about it. On course the restaurant ils Nice and design, but shamely,nowadays this is easier done than food. Add better Chinese expériences in Much simpler and cheaper restaurants in Barcelona. On a plus note,The désert (black sésames cream) sas quite Nice.

Visited this restaurant for a meal. We asked to see menu and the receptionist immediately gave frosty reception. We asked for a table and with sigh she said no tables available then with another sigh showed us a table. We ordered some drinks which came quickly and were plonked down on the table. Food was delivered which was good but... More

I always got dumpling which were fried with pork and chives, they were really good wish I had gotten more. The... More

This is an upscale but comfortable Chinese restaurant in the heart of Barcelona. This family-owned and run establishment has the feeling of traditional Chinese cooking in a European-like atmosphere.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
