Good food, depends on the day

I am a loyal customer to Chez Xu and must say it is a hot or miss. The food is very good and I often go with at least 5 people so we can order a variety of dishes. Service is at a very minimum, and the food is very unstable (sometimes extremely greasy, sometimes the dumplings are not cooked... read more

Went here with high expectations only to be disappointed with the staff being a bit rude. The food is average but from the last visit the taste has changed, as i believe the chef was different.

The food was so great, that I really wanted to go again. Considering the cost of food in Switzerland,I would say this is one place I found to be totally worth for the money you pay. Its a small and great no frills eating joint. The place gets crowded and might be difficult to find a table. The place might... More

I always went to this place when I lived in Lausanne. As living in Switzerland for a couple of years, I think that Chez Xu might be the best Chinese restaurant that you can find in this country, if you love real Chinese food.

Really enjoyed our dinner here. There were lots of reserved tables but luckily they had space. We both had soup noodles and they were very tasty with good ingredients. Overall would recommend as prices are very reasonable and the food was great!

A perfect place to go with friends, with a nice and quick service (don't forget to book to be sure to have a table!) We recommend the delicious fried dumplings as a starter (perfect for two people as there will be 12 or 15 of them!). Then you could share two different dishes in order to try as many dishes... More

In terms of quality of the food this place has one of the best quality Chinese dishes, especially some spicy and lamb dishes. There are also home made dumplings and home made noodles, which is a specialty. However, the place is small and often crowded during peak hours and especially during weekends. Since it is becoming popular, it is recommended... More

Do not put your best clothes to go the Chez Xu because when you will step out the restaurant they will smell a lot. Except for this issue the food is really excellent and the restaurant itself is a lot of fun. We were 4 and after ordering it did not take too long before the plates start arriving. I... More

Large portions, full of flavor, wide variety of food! It's loud, it's crowded (so make sure to reserve), and you may end up sharing your table with complete strangers--this is what makes it so fun! They also do call-ahead take out, so if you feel like staying in you can do that. One portion feeds two people easily, but the... More

Food was fantastic and the service was great. We were there for lunch and had Peking Duck and Spare Ribs with the shaved salad and wonton soup. I have traveled in China and no where in my experience have I had better Chinese food outside of China. Authentic and fresh and tasty! Always a good sign when you see quite... More
