Delicious food

I went to transit with some friends and the atmosphere is nice. You will receive a menu card and then a paper where you should tick which dishes you want and how many. We were three and I think we ordered 8 small dishes and it was so delicious and we were surprised how full we were. The flavours... read more

The interior is very nicely designed. The music is quite loud and tables are packed so you need a reservation and this crowdedness also adds to the noise. Dont expect fancy drinks or wine. The goal here is asian streetfood. There is no twist or anything. Its very good but basic asian streetfood. Wit four people we paid 25 each... More

Always when I receive visit in town and I want they meet something special, I go here. It's close to my home, has a good ambient, good service and an easy way to order. It's ideal for tasting different plates and for people who doesn't like to eat a full supermarket by themselves. Depends how hungry your are, you spend... More

Unlike the other restaurant in Mitte, this Transit in the Sonntagstrasse is a little more quiet. The food (asian fusion, mainly thai-chinese) is very good and the price is fair, the perfect place to celebrate.

Really small portions for 3€ or more. 0.25l bottled water for 2€. They won't bring tap water until you order another drink first. All very petty really. Also the service was unfriendly to the point of being uncomfortable. The food is too salty.

This is a good place to head if you have some veg/an friends and some who aren't as they cover both sides of the food spectrum. Plenty of good vegan options alongside the traditional ones. Nice and casual, fast service and not too pricey.

Really great Asian style tapas. Great value dishes. The tapas size plates at €3 each are nice size portions and really tasty. Would definitely recommend!

We were warned that the (mainly female) waiting staff here had a reputation for being stunningly beautiful but surly! I could see why such an attitude might suit the hard modern interior, but on a sunny afternoon in August in the back yard they were the model of patience and helpfulness (and gorgeous!). The small plates are not small and... More

This place has great interiors, a friendly staff and the food is delicious. I love that is well hidden by a cloth curtain that cuts the outside "transit". The drinks were not that spectacular abut all the small disches you can order were worth.

I have eaten at Transit on several occasions and have always loved it. I prefer this restaurant to the one at the Rosenthalerstrasse, this one's cosier and staff are kinder. Please don't go to Vapiano's or any other large chain restaurant, but go to Transit. Just as fast and a lot more fun and atmosphere. At Transit, you design your... More

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
