Midrange china-export kitchen. Well done, but nothing special. We had early dinner at 7 o'clock. No other guests, so the food arrived very quickly. A bit expensice.

This is a nice restaurant and had more vegetarian options than some of the other places we looked at (vegetable dishes with different sauces). It was quiet when we went, but it was a week night and the place is a bit out of the centre. I would say it's worth the walk though - the prices are standard Norwegian... More

Great food very big portions . Less choice than a Chinese in the uk but very tasty . The waiter we had was so friendly and let me have vegetarian chow mein which wasn't on the menu . It's a bit further out of the centre but worth the walk

I live 50 feet away from that place and I occasionally order from these guys. It's not super cheap but they are consistent in quality and they serve quite a lot of food. Something to try.

This place has been around forever in Tromsø, and I finally decided to go. The service was bad, and the food looked and tasted like it was from the day before. My tempura was hard and you could see that is was white and not golden under the sweet and sour sauce.

This is my first choice when it comes to asian food in Tromsø. The staff is always friendly and helpfull. You get your food in a timely manner, and its always better then expected. Its great no matter if I dine in the restaurant, or if I order take-out.

By Norwegian Asian resturant standards the food here is very good, the order time was short and the prices are decent based on the portion sizes, schezuan dishes were spicy by Norwegian standards which was perfect for me

One of the better Chineese food I have had in Norway. Good sauce and well combined vegetables. Friendly staff. A bit on the outside of the city center, but still not a far walk (10 min).

Thank Tavellie
