New and fresh style restaurant with open kitchen and good service even at outdoor seating on Potsdamer Platz under giant parasols. Wonderful crispy shrimps, great steamed or fried dumplings in bamboo basket, flavorful curries and nice wine selection per glass. Mango lassi's are perfect!

Bland, tasteless food? Bickering waitresses and poor service. Asked for condiments and it never came. Asked for an extra plate - it never came. Our first experience of a COA and it was awful. I'll have to be pretty desperate to try this place again. I might as well have put a match to my money.

Good value for money, nice decor / ambience, and a good selection on the menu. Service could be better, but nothing to complain about really. Unfortunately they did bring me the wrong dish but they were quick to rectify and apologetic. If you're looking for something quick, easy and good value, Coa is a great choice. Try the spring rolls... More

We had dinner here tonight and it was a refreshing change from the usual heavy German food in the area. We had the fried chicken spring rolls, fried shrimp tempura and duck with shiitake mushroom. Service a little slow, but other than that it was great. Price including 2 beers was 30 euros.

Right next to the ritz, so very convenient. Very simple but good selection of asian food. Good ingredients, great quick service, and good price. You won't regret going here.

Very interesting mix of asian food, and at a good price. The service was good even though the restaurant was full.

We choose this restaurant base on our traveler guide and indeed it was a good meal for its money. The personel was friendly. We ate outside because of the hot weather. Our food was served in a good timeframe. (not directly, but we didn't need to wait long, just ok in my opinion) It is not that far allocated from... More

We tried COA with our kids on our visit to Berlin. The decor is nice, seating at long tables with a good view of the kitchen. Having lived in Asia, the food was decent but nothing extraordinary. Some dishes lacked depth of flavor and complexity that one can expect of truly excellent Thai food. Perhaps some of the favors were... More

Had a small snack/meal in this place one early evening and we had dumplings and noodles. The service is fast and the staff were very friendly.

I looked at some of the review by English speakers and many complain that they had to wait. Yes, we had to wait as well. Waiting gives you an opportunity to start a conversation, enjoy your time with other people, and then eat some delicious Asian food. My family and I ate here twice and both times were great. Yes,...
