“Ok food, horrible staff”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

It is very rare for me to stumble upon bad service, but at this place it seems the staff might be having a competition about who can piss of the customers the most.
They are rude, ignorant, loud, do not listen to what you say and are very likely to start arguing when you point out that they have brought you the wrong food.
it is quite funny actually.

Anyway, the food is totally fine, but nothing special. Do not mind eating lunch here, but would obviously never consider going here for a comfy relaxed dinner.

“Worst buffet ever”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

We arrived at this restaurant looking forward to the buffet advertised at €12.80. We were promptly seated and shown the buffet area however the food selection was very minimal and it was cold!!! We complained after eating just one spoonful and the manger was so unprofessional and rude stating you are on Germany!! Not England!! Do not eat here the food is terrible and the service even worse. Worst Chinese buffet ever. After complaining we still had to pay even though we didn't eat anything!! Ruined trip to Berlin

“Average Chinese restaurant”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

We looked up this restaurant, because it was said to offer the best Chinese dumplings. As such, we only ordered dumplings. Some of them were good, but some of them even I make better at home (and I would not expect this from any kind of Chinese restaurant). The waitress misunderstood one item on our order, but once we pointed it out to her, she changed the misunderstood item.
The restaurant looked very neat and clean, it even had its own branded cutlery. We felt very well in the restaurant, but next time we go, I will not order the dumplings.

“Still over the average but catching-up with the quality needed”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

The location just opposite the Chinese embassy implies that the quality and authenticity would go without words. This used to be like that and I was very impressed after the first few visits some years ago. Unfortunately the last two visits were a bit disappointing. Either they have changed the cook or got spoiled by good business - it was not what it used to be. The starters are still very good, also the soups. The main dishes were OK and the Beijing duck definitely overprised for a timy amount of meat you get on the plate.

“Decent food but poor service”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

By Berlin standards this is a better than average Chinese restaurant in terms of quality. There is a good selection of Dim Sum, and they are well prepared and tasty. They do plenty of other dishes as well. The atmosphere is quite pleasant, and the staff are welcoming. What let it down is the service: we waited for a long time for both food and drinks, had to remind them about some things when they didn't turn up, and still ended up not getting one of the dishes we had ordered. When we asked about it, we were told it was on its way, but after another half an hour we gave up and asked for the bill. The waiters were friendly and polite, but there was obviously a communications problem between restaurant and kitchen. It was a quiet night, with the restaurant half-empty, so it can't just have been that they were rushed off their feet.
