You would never expect to be served authentic Chinese food which is absolutely delicious in this part of the world. We are from Malaysia and Chinese food here is abundant. So, when we went into this restaurant we were rather skeptical of what we would be served. Lo and behold, we were in for the surprise of our lives. Shanghai... More

first things first: this is a chinese restaurant in Italy, in a small town like Padova... so the 'very good' is in relation to those criteria. Sure, i had much more authentic food in China... but remembering that we are in Italy: very good. Staff is friendly, decor is what you would expect in a western chinese restaurant. Menu is... More

I love a good Chinese food. But this is just not it. I will carry the taste of the vinegar in their sweet and sour source for the day. They drowned fish in it and it tasted just that. The spring rolls were bland. Gamberini -not fresh. If that is Nr.14th restaurant in Padua, I feel sorry for their inhabitants... More

This Chinese restaurant is definitely above average. The minute you walk in the door you know that your entering a special restaurant. The decor is modern and the floor covers a gigantic fish tank. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and professional. We ate there on a Sunday night and by 7:00 PM it was full. We... More

The food was good but not traditional chinese. There are many items on the menu that you will find only in Italy like fried spaghetti. We ate well. All of the food was fresh and the boys enjoyed the sea food including the prawns, squid and octopus. I really enjoyed the green beans and cauliflower. The atmosphere was great and... More

I was a student in Venice and Padua was a short and cheap train journey away. This Chinese restaurant was our favourite place to go to eat in Padua. Lovely restaurant and really reasonably priced food and good portions. They made customised dishes for us that weren't on the menu. Only downside is this place is so popular you need... More

With Chinese food I am always hesitant. But this was a real find. Goodness. Dishes, richness of China beautifully cooked. Also nice environment with sensational catwalk on the floor with aquarium. By return.

Now, as someone who knows Chinese food very well, I have to say that this restaurant has an edge on all the other places I had Chinese at in Italy. I could rate it one step up from all the other restaurants however still a step down from a good one in China. The general taste of the food is... More
