Every time we go to Berlin we never miss a visit to Good Friends. The place is nice and the food very good. No matter is you are or not an expert, the staff will drive you to a good choice.

My Wife and I used this manic Chinese restaurant twice during a five day stay.On both occasions we had not booked but were found a table after a short wait.This is not fine dining but if you need to load up on MG rich,reasonably priced Chinese food,this is the place for you

I'd consider this as a solid if unspectacular place to go. Classic Chinese Restaurant menu but everything is done well and the staff were attentive all speaking English, German and Chinese. Can't go far wrong here.

Visited after guide book recommendation and won't be returning. On entering there was barely an acknowledgment from the staff and we were then sat in a corner out the way. We ordered duck with pancakes to start and although the duck was nice, there wasn't enough to warrant the €20 price tag, I then ordered chicken in lemon sauce which... More

The last thing people need in berlin is this kind of chip, seedy Chinese mainstream touristic restaurant. Indeed is full of tourists, the atmosphere is not cozy at all, the food is terrible, the service is So so, with the same price I could suggest at least 5 nice looking Vietnamese restaurants. So unless you don't wanna do a full... More

The cosmetics just got better. The food is the same. GREAT!!!! I love the Cantonese style and the hanging duck is not to be missed. Always ask the waiter what looks good today. And I love them. Some have said they are rude, but they do get the job done in hectic times. Think of what they must do. Back... More

Thank God we booked a table in advance 'cuz there was a line of people waiting to be seated. The waiter came to us with quite an impatient attitude. He rolled his... More

I came here because suggested by the Loney Planet as "best Chinese restaurant in Berlin". I have to say that: - a menu with decades of plates says already that most of that are already prepared - the personnel is not at all nice - the food itself was nothing special So, in a nutshell, massively overestimated. I do not... More

The ducks hanging behind the kitchen window was a dead giveaway! Delightfull authentic food such as salt and pepper lobster wokked to perfection, crispy duck with pancakes and stuffed shrimp chicken. The service amazingly... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
