We used to go there quite often as we live nearby, but the service just got worse and worse since 2012 or so. Once, we ordered half a roast duck and only scrap of skin and bones came, and the rice was dry, cold and yellowing. Not wanting to complaint, we ate it and thought maybe it was already late... More

Maybe we were just lucky when we got a table after only waiting for 15 minutes. We ordered the special fried rice, chicken with cashews, and the grilled pork. It turned out that the chicken with cashew dish includes a huge bowl of plain rice. Surely the waiter will normally inform the customer that this dish includes rice given we... More

Myself and my partner went to Berlin for a 4 day break. We stayed in the plaza hotel which is near the savignyplatz train station. Most of the restaurants around this area are Italian, so after walking for approx half an hour, we saw the 'Good friends' Chinese and headed straight for it. It was very busy, but we understood...

Well not so short either as we waited 20 minutes before we got served and even then had to stand up to get the attention of the three talking heads behind the podium. But when he did take our order he was rude and aggressive to us. To me the way you are treated is just as important as the... More

The Taxi driver drop us at the door. This was a good pickup from him. Without a reservation we had to wait in line a bit, but that was worse while. Excellent chinese dishes. Very tasty. I think this is one of the best rice noodles I had. The menu includes hundreds of choices. English menu available.

This is quite a large restaurant with seating both inside and outside. I wasn't sure what to expect but the place was busy which is usually a good sign. We were served by a great young waiter who spoke German, English, Mandarin and Cantonese and he recommended some great dishes for us. The food was great and the service also... More

This is one of the best Chinese restaurant in Berlin just by looking at others on reviews. I am very surprised by the efficiency of the service and the excellent taste of the dishes. After ordering the dishes turned up in 5 minutes after I returned from the washroom after ordering. The waiters are very attentive and the atmosphere is... More

I lived in Berlin for a six months a while ago, and Good Friends quickly became one of my favorite restaurants there. They have more than 300 dishes on their menu so you can get new food every time. Don't order from the orange/red pages in the menu. They are modified for European tastes. The green side of the menu... More

I can understand the comment about the rather blase service - but I grew up going to Chinese restaurants - the staff help you with the menu, recommend things, take your order; serve the food, then remove dishes. I'm used to basic family Cantonese style service ;) Don't order from the orangey or reddish coloured pages - I had guessed... More
