“Decent Chinese in a shopping mall”
Reviewed 14 December 2012 via mobile

I love most kinds of Chinese food, but I rarely eat Chinese in Germany. The 'adjustment' to perceived local taste usually goes too far, or maybe the ingredients are not readily available.
This place is an exception. It serves good quality in a friendly atmosphere. I have gone there regularly since many years, once or twice per year.
Their best dish, IMO, is the crispy duck. Another standard is the wanton soup, though it comes with an oversupply of bean sprouts. Most dishes on the menu are vaguely Cantonese, but they also serve a reasonable approximation to Sichuanese.
The mall hasn't been discovered by Chinese tour groups yet, hence the clientele consists mostly of German shoppers. That is normally not a good sign, but one has to live with it here.
