Had abit of homesick and went to this chinese restaurant. Felt like home the minute I got in with waiter speaking cantonese. Food quality comparable to standards in hong kong but cheaper。 如果你是香港黎嘅遊客,食左幾日西餐,呢間啱晒。伙記講廣東話,味道正宗,都抵食

Great lunch with Cantonese dishes which are hardly found in town. Food is served fast after ordered. Very nice staff. Reasonable price. Recommended if you want to try real Cantonese food.

For a change of pace in Barcelona, this Chinese restaurant provides a range of well prepared Chinese dishes at very reasonable prices. Recommend the steamed fish and shrimp wonton soup.

Finally Cantonese food! Rare in this town. The decor is nothing to write home about for sure, but the hanging roast duck, siew-yok and char-siew behind the glass counter is a good familiar sign. You will need to be selective and wade through the dishes...More

The restaurant offers typical Chinese food at an affordable price. Every dish I ordered taste very delicious and they all come in great portion. I like the cleanliness of the restaurant as well as the good service of every staff.

OK, the place does not look fancy and I am sure that the decoration and furniture was in fashion in the seventies. But, it is absolutely worth to try your luck and order a peking duck menu. Fabulous!

This Chinese restaurant is situated on Calle Balmes, and the food is superb, so we went back for a second time! Everything is freshly cooked to perfection and prices are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

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
