The food was pretty good (not fancy or presented nicely though), the quantities were great (big!) and it was a fantastic price (for Switzerland). The service on the other hand was quite poor. Very pushy, not courteous or polite and they basically throw the plate down for you. Sooo, yes, it's good, but not THAT good!

I was here for an office team lunch in March 2014. I suppose coming with a group of eight was a tall order for a place that apparently gives poor service even to small groups, but having to wait *one hour* for our meals is simply unacceptable. One person in my party even went without lunch because the server forgot... More

I have been living in China for some years. And whenever I have a Chinese food craving: this is THE place! The food is amazing, the service is minimal and efficient. and the value for money is unbeatable! I brought here some of my Chinese friends and they have all agreed to say that this is the best Chinese restaurant... More

I've been coming to chez Xu for a number of years and I have a couple of favorites: seaweed salad and royal aubergine. I am vegetarian and it was a disappointment to see that the tofu de la maison option disappeared from the menu about 6 months ago. I happen not to like the only other one tofu option, sechuan...

Small and nice, kind boss and staff. Their food is delicious and authentic, a bit crowded atmosphere, service is average, however the price is like good value for money. The quantity of each dish is generous, don't expect cnfortable service and seat, but your stomach will let you know it's really an attractive place to go for a quick lunch... More

I have been at Xu many times and I have to admit that the food is very good. Sometimes, the services is not very good and the place is usually crouded. In the last 3 years, the prices have gone drasticaly up by probably doubling but it's still a good value for money in Lausanne that I recommand.

I love coming here. Quick order emporter then a glass of wine while I wait. Atmosphere is busy but relaxed and everyone is happy to be here. Staff are punctual and polite but don't expect high 5s and chats - they are focused on the task at hand. Food is reliable, tasty, fresh, and not expensive! Rare in Lausanne. You... More

The food speaks for itself - excellent - a very tasty and varied menu. Sadly no atmospheric lighting here so it's not great for romantic special occasions but, nevertheless, is a jolly and sociable place to go for wonderfully delicious food.

Many choices of varied chinese food, to much of ajinomoto (glutamate) that make the food more tasty. But great value and should make a reservation to come there!

I rarely expect to eat decent Chinese food in Switzerland, and the few good meals I have had have been in much more expensive and fancier places. From previous reviews of the Rue de Tunnel location I was expecting a much plainer looking room but the tables were nice and the decoration simple and tasteful. Service was friendly and most... More
