I had a dinner in the restaurant, the service was good and the food itself was very good. We also enjoyed the Asian atmosphere which was very well done. There is nothing to complain about except that the price is too high for the restaurant and the quality you get. There are other Asian restaurants in Switzerland which can easily... More

Delightful atmosphere from the minute you walk in, noting Michelin Approval. Short Menu but covered our needs just fine. Food was really good, well presented, delicious. Prices for Switzerland were OK. Good selection of wines, as ever in CH, very expensive. Waiting staff helpful and charming. My Dinner Guest was impressed

The prawn starter followed by Tamarind duck were both superb, plentiful, well cooked and good to look at. The service was attentive, but not over the top.

Probably the worst Thai green curry of my entire life. This was ridiculous, it was every thing but not Thai. Chicken cooked separately on a grill and cut into pieces. Industrial bad curry sauce. 36.- for this ridiculous meal. 8.50 for a glas of whine. Go there for a drink eventually, but food is totally to avoid. Bwerk !!!

If you are looking for a nice place to eat try out Mekong. It's fairly central and offers a broad range of Asian dishes. The atmosphere is authentic and you can mix up your favourite Asian dishes with some local beer from Lucerne. Just around the corner you have a number of bars where you can go for a glass... More

I live in Vancouver which has a reputation of best Chinese food outside of China. Luzern and Switzerland are definitely very low on that ranking (which is fine as they are topping the rankings on many other types of food), and this restaurant is in that average... Not terrible, but just not worth it. Had some chicken with rice noodles... More

I had the 22 CHF 'Bento Box' lunch, which was basically Thai curry and rice, with soup. The curry wasn't very spicy, but it was quite pleasant. Avoid the standard green tea (CHF 4.50) unless you like it weak and flavoured with cloves (Liptons sachets) and order the pot of tea instead. (CHF 7).

Had dinner yesterday. Portions are mid-large sizes. Prices are lower than what you'd pay elsewhere in Lucerne. So very good value. Very nice atmosphere and interior design. Menu selection is not very large but you'll find at least 2-3 ideas you'll appreciate. Not a cheap Asian but also not a "freak fusion" robbery
