Twelve years ago, Mario, a German Michelin chef, came to China for inspecting markets. During this period, he went to many cities, and he eventually chose to settle in Changsha. He started his restaurant and his family here, and he has made many friends with his cuisine. He said that he feels happy every day, and Changsha has become his hometown.


Cooking is his interest and his profession. Most of the time, Mario stayed in his own restaurant. He enjoyed working in the kitchen and making food to everyone around him. The unique rigor and persistence of the Germans still run through his work, though he has stayed in Changsha for 12 years. In order to guarantee the quality of each cuisine, the restaurant will have a limited number of guests for one day. Every morning, Mario goes to the market for the freshest ingredients. He chats and bargains with sellers to build friendly relationships with everyone. Customers who taste his food may become his friends.


Small and beautiful, it was the first impression that Changsha gave to Mario. In the past ten years, Mario also witnessed the changes in Changsha. “I love the culture and development of Changsha. I hope that my restaurant and I may give different elements to the city. I want to bring the taste of Michelin restaurant with the most reasonable price to people of Changsha City."
