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

We went to the Hot Spot, because one of our friends heard a lot positive about that restaurant. But all we was very disappointed about the terrible atmosphere and the food. Yes, it was spicy, but not tasty! Never again we will visit the Hot Spot, there are some real good Chinese restaurants in Berlin.

The 3 of us shared 5 main courses and fried rice. Everyone was great. I had the tea smoked duck (soooo gooood) and we also had hot spicy tofu ( I have... More

Should learn to say no and get them to swipe the card as they just don't want cards other than EC cards. Rung my card company and... More
