The food is neither elegant nor authentic Chinese. If you are looking for that, try London or New York or Hong Kong, not Berlin. There's no view, the interior is rather plain and the location is definitely not hip, yet it's difficult to get a seat at the Hot Spot. Maybe it's because the food tastes good to a European... More

We returned from a day in Dresden tired and hungry. We had been told the food at Hot Spot was excellent, they had an amazing wine list, and late hours. The food was delicious, quick, and we were able to eat and quickly retire after a long day.

...... For chef and serving staff. I was observed but constantly ignored when seeking attention in a less then busy restaurant. My duck was ruined by excessive black bean sauce - it should enhance the flavour of the duck - not smoother and kill it! Ribs were similar with a too sweet sauce. When a chef hides the taste of...

unusual chinese cooking and a wonderful collection of white wines. Simple furniture far different from all the usual chinese Restaurants in Germany. If you are looking for good chinese food combined with a good german whine, mainly Riesling, this place is yours.

Had just my third visit here. There's so much to love in this place. Atmosphere, winelist, food, customer service. First is the starter soup, which gives you a little hint from the rest menus hotness. Next you get cold ones, which are all really good, whatever it's tofu, cucumber, mushrooms or cold meat. Warm foods ups things to a different... More

Easy to get to, well located and fairly priced modern Chinese restaurant in heart of Berlin. Friendly staff who speak good English. Interesting dish selection and the house Riesling is terrific. We paid 150e for 5 of us and we're totally satisfied.

After almost 2 weeks in Europe and saturated by European cuisine, we were looking for something spicy and not European. We were quite surprised by this find in Berlin. We ordered 2 dishes marked with 4 peppers - chicken and fish - and our spice cravings were satisfied. The place is very dark and there seems to be construction going... More
