This was a grate restaurant but no longer exists. Instead there is opened a new place Brasserie and even for a drink is absolutely worth visiting. Beautiful interior design and paintings

If you have eaten Chinese food before - stay away from this. Food reheated, overcooked rice, rock solid spring rolls, list goes on... The "chef" is a star awarded Romanian cook who learned to cook in China.. Do yourself a favor, stay away from this. PS: they even serve Romanian food sometimes (on events)

Some reviews complain about the food not being that great and I have to say it was not to my taste but at least everything we ate was prepared from fresh ingrediants and there have been many places we have eaten in Brasov that cannot say that. The restraunt was quiet and maybe they need to do something about the... More

The restaurant was the second Chinese restaurant in comunist Romania, so it is very old. Maybe that is way you have the feeling of a time traveler. The food has no connection to the real Chinese food. It is not impressive at all and it is a little bit expensive. I think only the beer was Chinese. So, for me,... More

As you can read in other reviews,the decor is good,but that's it!The food is less than average and very expensive.The only good side of this experience was that we had a romantic dinner,since we were the only costumers!NOBODY was coming to the restaurant and now I know is not only about money. Advise: don't waste your time and money

The house menu is awesome, it consists of two parts, a "snack" with spring rolls, Shanghai Chicken and some others while the main course is laden with delicacies such as pork with peanuts, chicken with 5 aromas (best sauce ever) and also beef with onion. I had the pleasure of talking with the chef (no he's not Chinese) and he's... More

Probably the worst Chinese food I`ve eaten in Romania. And above all it`s very expensive! Hopefully they will improve in the future, as they have now strong competition.

Staying in Brasov for three nights with my 15 year old and 8 year old... We had dinner here twice (once inside and once outside). The kids enjoyed the spring rolls and fried chicken wings. The waiters were friendly and helpful. Food comes quickly. So if you are traveling in Brasov, and your kids are tired of pizza and pasta,... More

The restaurant is located in the central square of Brasov. Has a beautiful terrace, well furnished. The food, typical Chinese is well cooked, good looking. The chef has extensive experience in Chinese cuisine.

I was in China, but nothing tasted Chinese in this restaurant. The service is also poor, but prices are very high (and with no reason whatsoever).
