On one of our latest visits to Helsinki we were looking for a quick bite in or around Kamppi. We are always in the mood for Chinese food, so the Empire Plaza seemed convenient. The restaurant seats quite many customers, however the buffet area is a little small. The selection is ok, but for this size restaurant I would have... More

Even if I haven't got hardly any experience of Chinese food, I really enjoyed it. The environment is calm, the noise from Kamppi is well isolated. Nice atmosphere, decent service, no complaints.

This is usually a good chinese place with a large and delicious menu. Summertime boasts a very good outdoors area. Stopped by tonight for a pre-movie dinner, was shown to a table and then abandoned. No service. Not a waiter in sight. Restaurant not even half-filled. I did what I sometimes do on such occasions, stood up took my coat... More

Between walking tours of the city, we found ourselves in the Kamppi shopping center and saw this restaurant's placard for an all you can eat Chinese lunch buffet. This turned out to be a good choice for us. Because it was a well-stocked buffet, with a European style salad bar, it was easy to set our own pace and be... More

We had a great meal here on one rainy night in Helsinki. There is an excellent choice on the menu and the service is excellent. Our meal came out in no time at all but the restaurant was only half full to be fair. The meal was full of flavour and well presented. I would visit here again.

This evening I ate at this restaurant. I sat inside and it was nicely decorated. I had a seafood casserole, which had lots of vegetables and seafood. It had good flavor, but was not spicy. Service was good. Overall it was a good experience,

First time in this restaurant , very busy lunch time, but they take also orders from Ala carte. Good quality portions, and enough quality ,--according to this price level in Helsinki. Waitress is half Chinese and half Finnish, deco is little bit old but quite stylish. Cantonese style food is main in the menu, no sushi available.

Used to be a reasonable one some years ago but now I found totally d different. It took nearly one hour to get first dish. We finished a bottle of wine before first dish was served. Their soy source tasted like some kind of dark chemical solution than natural soy source. We ordered 5 dishes but tasted all the same.... More

Big portions of good food. Presented nicely with flowers. Service good, also in English. A bit more fancy that other Chinese restaurants in the area. (One tip: share one portion if you don't want to get too full.)
