It is a hidden little treasure in the always fun "Zona Rosa" very close to the Marriott Reforma. The owner os Chinese and there is a robust Chinese clientele! The duck is wonderful. The food is spicy, i suggest asking about how spice the food is if you do not like spicy. The service is superb, the decor is ok.... More

It was a great surprise, the entrance probably won't lurk you inside, but it is definitely worth it! A vast menu with the speciality of the house being Beijing duck. To be honest, it would get five stars if it wasn't because it is pricey for the place. Be sure to check it out, won't regret it!

We had lunch there on our first day in Mexico City. Being tired of traveling, we just wanted something warm, fast, soothing and close to the hotel. That's what it was. I would go back for a fast lunch! Really inexpensive!

The food was okay although a bit pricey. I don't like having to pay for steamed rice in an Asian restaurant. It's inauthentic. Decor is nice but the rest including service is"just there".

We came in about 7pm on a Wednesday. It was very quiet inside. We picked our own tables and were given menus quickly (menus are in Spanish & English). The table next to us were being served Beijing Duck (Peking Duck). It looked good so we ordered that and waited. And waited. The restaurant had nearly emptied out over an... More

After the typical large Mexican lunch, we don't want much to eat at supper so appreciated having a choice of soup & egg rolls here. Hot & Sour soup was very good while Won Ton soup was OK - dough was too thick. Good Egg rolls but so large we took them back to our hotel. Be prepared to pay... More

When you're craving Chinese food, this place will hit the spot! Prices are a bit steep, but the quality of the food seems very good and was delicious. Ordered the Encanto de Buda appetizer, stir fried rice and Lechuga empaquetada (lettuce rolls) and was pleasantly surprised that the lettuce was crisp and fresh! The chicken finely diced and delicious.

Visited this restaurant with a group of friends last week and had some doubts looking at the entrance. However when the food arrived, wow! Since shark fin soup is no longer allowed in Mexico, I had the abalone which was superb. The rice was wonderful but the Peking Duck was by far the best I think I have ever had... More

Entered the restaurant at 7 PM Sunday night. No customers in the place. Waiters not interested in us. When we received the menu we were surprised at the prices. Entres were180 to 200 pesos. That is what we have been paying at higher end restaurants. We waited too long for a waiter for drink order then left.

At first sight upon entering, the place was filled with Chinese diners, therefore I knew it would be authentic. We were greeted and given a white table cloth table. We ordered sesame chicken and chicken fried rice. They were both delicious. I made the mistake of adding chile to my fried rice, as it was too hot to handle. Nonetheless,... More
