Nice place in Milan with very high quality/price ratio. Owner very kind, service ok, raw fish is interpreted with an eye to Asia, and wine cellar with not many titles but good quality and affordable prices.

I had already been here a few years ago and was not impressed by the lack of authenticity in its version of Chinese food. A friend brought me back and I discover the've called themselves a "fusion" restaurant.... which in this specific case is actually meaning that they have now included pseudo-japanese dishes (i.e. to increase their client number). Well,... More

This is our absolute favourite restaurant and we eat here at least once a week. We love the food, the staff are cordial and we love introducing our friends to this place. The owner is extremely knowledgable and is forever creating new fusion dishes, harmoniously blending eastern and western flavours a resulting in original and exciting new dishes. There are... More

I love this place. The menu offers the "classic" chinese dishes as long as nice fusion interpretations and really intriguing mixes. They also serve sushi, though I never tried it. But considered the quality of the rest of the food, it's probably at the same level. The atmosphere is very cozy, not a "typical" chinese restaurant. A little bit pricy,... More

I went to this restaurant because my friend recommended it. She is Chinese and knows her food. We ate so well... Dumplings with beef and truffles, salmon and avocado salad prawn noodles and beef carpaccio. They also serve excellent sushi. I recommend you book in advance. The service was fast and friendly and the price -quality ratio is excellent.

Visited this place last week it was lovely. It was a Friday night and did not have a booking, but they arranged a table for us. We had Japanese seaweed and salmon spring rolls for starters and they were delicious. For mains we ordered the chilli prawns and my partner had the chicken dipped in almonds along with an egg...

Whenever I want to taste creativity, invention and the real flavours of the best Asian food in Milano I always visit this small restaurant located outside the so called "Chinatown" Area. The food is always superb, you can taste the traditional dishes of the Chinese cousine as well as what the chef and owner creates and you are certain of... More
