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.

Actually the food was OK, but very minimal, eg., order the beef in ginger sauce and that's all you get, no veggies, just a small plate of the beef. For the huge price we expected it to come with something! Expensive but average wine, uninterested waiter. A little disappointing. Better value Italian food at several places.

We had dinner two out of three days at our stay at Zermatt. Plenty of options for vegetarian food also. The food was at par with some of the best Chinese we ever had. A must go for all who visit zermatt.

I am Chinese and I am picky about quality of Chinese food. This restaurant has a nice ambience, but the food is mediocre. Don't even waste your money on Dimsum. Any dish which is Knusprig (German word for crispy) is heavily breaded and fried with little real substance with the exception of duck dishes. The price is way over the... More

We were very worried initially due to bad experience of others. We were 4 and we started with soup. Subsequently, rice & chicken dishes etc. Good food - nothing great! Very nice & cordial service, excellent ambience and decor! Price is high & portions are very small. Overall - Very popular & nice joint in Zermatt.

We really enjoyed our meal here. Service was good and the food was delicious. We had the starter platter to share and then two beef dishes with rice. Probably the best beef I have had in a Chinese. Wine was also good and the meal was reasonable by Swiss standards.

We had heard about the great reputation of this place (ranked in Gault & Millau guide) and were looking forward to try it but had a bad experience: 1) not a friendly welcome to start with 2) disorganized service: had to wait over 15 min to place the order despite the fact the place was far to be full, they...
