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).

We went here for dinner but then when we were about to enter the restaurant, the manager asked a waiter to stall us and tell us that they are already fully booked. We did not believe them because other can just come in without any reservations. So, We told them... More

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

Beautiful interior which lends to a lovely experience. I had the most amazing ribs ever! Was hesitant to order ribs as they were on the bone. However when the dish arrived they fell off of the bone.

If you want a fruity drink in a dimly-lit, Buddha-filled room, this is the place...BUT if you want good food, go elsewhere! The portions were large but priced at 36CHF each (around $40), the chicken curry and chicken teriyaki dishes were overpriced, over salted, and dry, dry, dry! The best thing on my plate was the steamed rice.
