Could the staff be a little nicer? I don't often complain, but as Munich's student district moves a bit more upscale, can the service also? Things to like: -Location: right on Schellingstrasse, near enough to metro, post, cinema etc...located on the corner can be pleasant outside in summer. -Menu: Simple and relatively inexpensive -Drinks: Not a bad place for a...

We didn't eat here but went back several times for the 'happy hour' cocktails! Good choice, nice atmosphere and friendly staff - this is a great place for a pre-dinner drink.

I ordered a curry chicken sandwich and what I got was sweet chilly sauce (that's what's they called curry). My friend got a wokvegetables thing that tastes like the frozen ones u get in the supermarket.

Wide range of choice, enriched by the chef's daily suggestions. The main dishes are between 6 and 10 euros.

European restaurants in the summer are great places because they open their large windows and place chairs and tables outside. Customers linger to talk, and no waiter rushes to clear more room for other patrons. The News Bar fits that bill well. It certainly isn't a place for gourmet meals (the name tells you that), but it is a great... More

My fiance, my future sister-in-law (who lives in Munich), and I sat down at this place to eat after running some errands. I didn't think the food would be anything more than regular cafe fare of soups and sandwiches but I was wrong. I ordered a German version of macaroni and cheese called kaesespaetzle. It is with fresh, homemade German... More

Good place to eat, drink and chat. Friendly staff, value for money. It was a lot cheaper than eating in the Old Town. Worth the effort to find it.

The second time I went for lunch, and it was just as busy the first time I went, but not enough waitstaff. The girl who took... More

Ate dinner here on Thanksgiving and really enjoyed it. The waitress did not speak English; however, she was happy to translate some words from the menu. Still, we were not completely sure what would come out of the kitchen - but we were definitely not disappointed. My mother had the Chicken Florida, which came in a coconut milk sauce with... More
