I have been visiting Lucerne for many years, and on every trip I just have to come to this restaurant where I am always assured of a friendly reception and a delicious meal. The hot and sour soup is some of the best I've had anywhere, the set menus are excellent and the service is always friendly and attentive. It has beautiful decor inside and a lovely outside area as well. It is expensive for a British visitor, but then so is everything else in Switzerland due to the steady decline of our currency. I will still keep coming while I can afford it, and look forward very much to my next visit!

Seriously the best Chinese restaurant we visiting in Europe. Not only is the place gorgeous, the food is exceptional and the staff is extremely polite and educated about the dishes. We've never had such authentic and delicious Chinese food (except for in China) and the wine list was insane too! Great value for what it is, a def must visit when in Luzern.

Although I've read a lot bad comments about this restaurant before we set off, we still step into this restaurant and hope to be impressed.

However...
There is serious racial discrimination issues happened here. the Indian manager treated chinese speaking customers in very rude manner.

No one basically would like to serve us when we're there with young children and seniors. It seems like with have made them ashamed to walk into their place with coloured skin.

The food was nothing impressive but purely salty, which I wonder if they can stand a day in other places which have a lot better chinese restaurants.

dear sapeto
we are very upset about your comment.

we have in our restaurants employees from over 20 different nations and treat everybody the same! it is you who treated our restaurant manager bad and discussed his nation and his skin!

our food is freshly made every day and our wok dishes are "a la minute". our chefs are from Peking.

maybe it is better you eat somewhere else, where they can serve you well.

your behaver is really bad.

Oh! So good! Really some of the best Chinese food we have had in a long time! We loved the outside patio, and the service was excellent. We had the fried rice with eight wonders and the Kung Bao chicken. So good! The husband ate the little peppers in the Kung Bao and they were HOT!! But we loved it. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

We had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant Saturday evening purely by chance on passing. We can honestly say that this is the best Chinese food that we have eaten in Luzern and surrounding area. The dim sum was light and tasty and our favourite main was the sizzling beef. We would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone and will definitely be visiting time and time again. The service received by our waiter Jeya
was second to none and he really did make our evening. Thank you Li Tai Pe!
