“Lots of scarfs!!!, and Mixed cheap stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Closed on Tuesdays only,
Big halls, with mostly cheap socks, underwear, t shirts, ect, and asian food.
A lot of shops with cheap scarfs, 4-5€ , an enormous selection to choose from,an unexpected surprise.
A loth of cheap clothes, both for teenagers, and for adult, a lot of nice Indian made clothes, like seen on Janpath, ect, and also in big sizes.
Lot of accessories , lots of cheap ( plastic?) bags .
For just that, I would definitively come here again
Ate lunch at the first restaurant when you enter the centre, Dong Xuan Quan, the most dull Pho ever, with no herbs ect witch is normal. A lot of Asian people ate there, so maybe we were just unlucky with the food.
But there is at minimum 4 restaurants to choose from , so take an other

“Wholesale, wholesale, wholesale, and a cheap haircut”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Four large halls in a desolated area. In each hall:
- one or two big restaurants at the front. Dishes for 6-7 euro, but also salads for 20 - 30 euro per dish ...
- one or two hair salons, with a haircut for only 6 Euro
- a lot of shops selling stuff wholesale: clothing, plastic bags, plastic stuff and other Far East stuff in general.

Our ordeal: not very interesting other than the hair cut for 6 euro.

“Surprising area with asian atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

Although it is far outside the centre but easy to reach by public transport this is a real surprise in a not very attractive area of town. Here you find many halls full of clothes, food, hairdressers, nailshops and cheap kitsch all the way from Asia. It is all cheap stuff but great to wander around and look at all the cheap but fun stuff. It is almost if you are in asia. We loved it.

I was there and it was so good that I wanted to come back for another visit but it was closed. They told me that on Tuesdays it is closed to the general public.

“Something different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

This was recommended by a Vietnamese waitress so we went along as she said that's where you get the best food if you are looking for real oriental food. It is an old industrial estate and the opposite of luxury but I love it. In different halls there are several restaurants, shops for food and clothes, hairdressers, beauticians, etc and the place where Vietnamese people living in Berlin go to. I had a great time and wish I would live around the corner to go there more often.
It's outside the city centre but easy to reach by the tram no 8 that stops right outside the main gate.
