As a Chinese family visiting Zermatt, we found a nice little Chinese restaurant and decided to check it out. Upon reserving a table for 9 we had one person down, to which the waiter seemed so surprised when we said we now have 8. As a traditional Chinese family, we like sitting at round tables for better atmosphere, where we... More

We dined at China Garden for 6 people; all of the dishes are tasty according to our Asian tongue. The waiter is very enthusiasm (cannot remember the name, he's a bit Asian and quick pace, with eyeglasses). Although the price is a little pricey - but well within standard range in Zermatt.

I had the beef noodle soup- and it was thick noodles(almost like Shanghai style) with a good beef broth, shredded beef and pickles. I guess to me it was more northern Chinese style food. My husband had won ton soup - we are use to Hong Kong style food so this was not as good. My daughter had the roast... More

Although reviews were mixed, it's quite a good Chinese restaurant with some authentic dishes. The vegetable Dumbling tasted "like my mother's ", said my taiwanese wife. That's not really a compliment. The other dishes were better and quite well made. Especially the Sichuan Omelette was tasty. The service was also good. Maybe we had luck and were not serves by...

Was looking for something different than heavy Swiss food. What a delight to find the China Garden, just a one block off of Bahnhofstrasse. Wait staff did an excellent job, food was served and prepared perfectly. I had the Gung Boa chicken for my main dish and spring rolls for an appetizer. The food was spicy hot the way I... More

We come to Zermatt every time we are in Europe, and once during each visit we eat at China Garden. So, this was a return visit for us and it did not disappoint. The food is very good, presented with elegance, and the room is lovely. Zermatt is a hiking village so most people are there in their hiking gear... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner with 5 other people. The service was poor and it took over 15 mins just to get our check. Then, when it came time to pay, the server didn't want to seem to take our money. The food is ok, but I wouldn't recommend it.
