Went here when passing through Lyon on a Sunday night. The place is quite small (35-40 places) and it had almost filled up within 15 minutes of opening, so we were lucky to get a table for the 4 of us as many were turned away after us. The food was authentic Chinese and a welcome change from the all too common eat as much as you like buffets. Two of our party were vegans, and they found a lot to suit them (note that the fried green bean have meat in them even though not mentioned on the menu, but they will do the dish without if you ask, but also note that they are quite spicy). Much of the clientele was Asian, which is recommendation in itself. The prices were very reasonable. The three vegetable dish was a great hit, and the caramalised sweet potato was an unusual and very highly praised dish. Would certainly go here again if in Lyon.

Clean restaurant.

Food are good.

Definitely need to come here if you have a strong crave for Chinese spicy food. Very close to what you can get in China.

Went for lunch yesterday and between two of us, ordered three dishes. Chicken Noodles were delicious. Kung Pao chicken a bit sweet for me. We could not eat the stir fried green beans. Very spicy and no indication on the menu. The waiter brought a bowl of water for us to dip the beans to reduce the heat! Non starter!
We were fortunate to be there by noon. It was packed by 12:30pm

The place is really small so it looks crowded. It looks like a family business because the employee look very young. I love chinese food and I was craving it, after checking the review we decided to go. It was a disappointment. The 2 dishes have similar taste. I'm not saying it's not but a little less salty would be better or MSG. I guess asian is not the forte of Lyon.
