Previously I had been here for the lunch buffet; my review was good; however we came here for dinner... Our review is quite poor; the service was inconsistent with starters for 4 served with 15minutes difference; the entrees were coldish. Not because they were not cooked right; but because they were served on ice-cold dishes. Wine arrived once we started... More

Thieves!!! I was a regular customer at Boky; I've been going there with a friend at-least once a week for the last 4 months or so. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. However the service is poor and until yesterday, I found out they are dishonest too! We went there around 10:30pm on a Sunday and we... More

We called in for an early evening meal. We shared a couple of drinks with Singapore Vermicelli and some roast pork. The food was cooked to perfection and the bill came to just over CHF 40. So good we returned the following day.

This was a real find in Geneva - good portion sizes for a reasonable price served hot and after which you felt full. We enjoyed our sweet and sour chicken and the service was prompt. It is not located in the best street but appearances can deceive! A good Chinese restaurant.

Looking for a Chinese restaurant that served duck with pancakes. Tried this one not far from the train station, we had the Peking duck (68 CHF for 2). The duck came out with the pancakes, we also had a soup (too much MSG), then another two dishes a sweet and sour plus a chilli dish. There was certainly enough food,... More

I did not enjoy this place at all, unfortunately. Despite the fact that the restaurant was almost empty, we had to wait endlessly to be served and, even worse, I and my three friends were all served in a different moment meaning that we never ate together, something I cannot stand in a service. I would not go back, sorry.

After a management change there is now a buffet. Choice of all you can eat of 1 soup; 2 appetizers; 4 main dishes and 4sides; 1 desert. All at an affordable price. Presented portions are not too big, so there is a constant refresh that ensures freshness. Service is attentive and ensures your table is free of finished dishes. All... More

Portions were decent sized for the price. Flavours were lacking and its truly a fast food place. Service was okay for the price and quality is acceptable for an occasional grub. For short trips and okay budget many other options can be considered.

I have always gone there with friends when I studied in Geneva. This place has never let us down. I went back to Geneva again in 2015 and the food still taste the same and remain the same price. We had duck with noodle soup. Duck was delicious but noodle was soso. Another dish that we always ordered was no.... More
