Quite casual place, looks like typical Chinese restaurants used to look like in 90's. If you go here and expect to get same food and experience as in mainland China you would probably be disappointed. If you look for Finnish/Western version of Chinese food you will leave happy.

Chinese food adapted to Finnish taste, just the way I like it. The waiter has a shrewed sense of humour, but he always make us feel good and welcome. Reasonable prices.

Very rude and strange waiter. Food is not so authentic. Decoration is something like China had 40 years ago. Price was reasonable though and dessert was included.

Menu is extensive and they also have tasting menus. If you are in the mood for Chinese food, this is the place for... More

The oldest chinese restaurant in Helsinki, founded 30 years ago. The interior is typically chinese, decorated in gold and red, creating a nice cosy atmosphere. Menues consisting of a starter, 4-5 main dishes and desert are offered at very reasonable prices. Take-away is also possible. In the family owned restaurant, the farther and daughter are serving. Especially the former one... More

Very good,simple Chinese food.Good atmosphere in quiet part of town. Not expensive. We would defend the elderly waiter who has received other's criticism. We found him helpful,dry and quite amusing.He had a sense of humour and was really friendly to us. ' Chacun a son gout '
