We were a table of 10 people. Very good service. Modern and excellent chinese dishes. The King prawns ("camaraõ") in red sauce were superb and the crispy duck perfectly cooked. Very nice atmosphere; although quite full the restaurant is not very noisy as the tables...More

In Rio for a family birthday our brother-in-law wanted to try Mr. Lam, about which he had heard good things. My instinct as a Brit. living in Sao Paolo is to steer clear of Chinese (and Indian) Restaurants because, unlike Japanese food which is fabulous...More

Big portions, but not cheap. The name of the restaurant may be the most Asian thing about the place. A see and be seen place amongst the high society that clearly has never tasted real Asian food. Food is not bad, but just not authentic.

Very expensive for something that is nowhere close to Chinese food. For these prices I would recommend spending your money somewhere else. However most local Brazilians have never tasted Chinese food, so they believe this is legitimate.
