Interesting mix of dishes in great ambiance

This is one of the most interesting restaurants in Visby. They have theor own style of small Asian inspired dishes and very nice staff. Some of the dishes were very good, others more ordinary. Great ambiance!

I really liked the nice staff and the atmosphere with a nice inside decoration. However the food is not authentic Chinese. It's okej but not good. But since the staff are so nice and the atmosphere is so nice you can forgive the mediocre food and prices. Perhaps it suits the Europeans well but I can not take my Asian... More

Surfers is hands down the best Chinese restaurant in Sweden. Don't go here alone - bring your friends or family and share several different dishes together to get most out of it. You need to order at least three dishes each to get a fully meal. The waiters are excellent and really give the time to explain what each dish... More

Never thought Chinese food could be this great. Although portions are quite small, the food was perfect, and each plate was distinctive. Service was top notch as well.

Truly the best Chinese food I've had in the northern hemisphere! Some dishes were a bit too spicy for my dinner companion but in general everything was very tasteful and had great texture. We sat at the bar since the restaurant was fully booked this hot Sunday summer's night (!). The (bar)staff was personal, fun and professional - the atmosphere... More

Great for vegetarians as most dishes that aren't already can be customized for us and the flavors are great. (Was overjoyed when they opened a second restaurant in Stockholm)

The atmosphere is great, the food is outstanding (if you don't love the Bang Bang chicken there must be something wrong with you...), and the drinks are great. The rhubarb coctail is not on the menu anymore but sometimes they have it in the summer anyway. Delicious. You need at least three dishes, but usually end up ordering more... Staff... More

walked into this place on a Saturday evening while visiting on a cruise. the restaurant was full but the staff took our name to wait for a table for 2 while we had a drink at the small, but very interesting and great atmosphere bar. we were seated within 20 minutes at an outside table. The waiter literally sat at... More
