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

We decided to try 'good friends' due to it being recommended in the lonely planet guidebook. From the outside it doesn't look particularly special but don't let that put you off. We went for a midweek lunch and it was very busy. The staff were friendly and spoke excellent English. I ordered the salt and pepper tofu and fried noddles.... More

Read about this restaurant in Lonely Planet. We travelled up from Alexanderplatz. Found it okay. Food excellent quality and portions large. We went on a Saturday night so was very busy and managed to get a table. I advise u to book to get a seat by the window. Not cheap average €20 for main courses. Would go back again.
