When we came the restaurant it was almost full. The waiter was nice, helpful, and efficient (we asked for suggestions and he helped us even though he was busy).

Extremely rude staff although food is not too bad. Not worth spending your penny here, it is expensive and the worst hospitality team we have ever seen. (Staff were neatly dressed though) Be cautious when you use their bath rooms at the basement of the restaurant. Floor is sticky and shows they do not pay too much attention to the... More

I am giving up on Chinese Food in Berlin. This place is supposed to be an Institution and the oldest Chinese Restaurant in Berlin but its just nothing but Name. Cant understand why its so packed. The BBQ pork belly was burnt and smelt of burnt. The veggies were bland and trust the Reviews, the Service is terrible and Price... More

A really first class meal. Huge amounts of choice. I went as part of a group of six and everybody agreed it was of a high standard. It was an extremely fair price as well. Things I ate: Dim Sum platter - delicious Peking Soup - Lovely Singapore Fried Noodles - probably the best Singapore Noodles ever Lemon Chicken -... More

Being an Asian American myself I do have a higher standard for Asian cuisine whenever I go out. Having lived all over Europe for nearly the past decade I have visited many Asian restaurants all over this continent. I have to say that the reviews that say Good Friends is "the best" or "very good" including my own friends lavishing... More

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

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
